In a former life Sorrel was once an all girls boarding school in the late 1800’s. Today the heritage and unique character of the building, now totally refurbished into a luxurious dining space, creates intimate pockets in which to showcase some of the finest food you’ll sample outside of London. There is also a further dining area with a bar downstairs that can be hired for private functions. The largest table seats six, which ensures Sorrel retains an air of intimacy and exclusivity throughout the restaurant.
A private car park is a fantastic addition, allowing guests to simply relax and enjoy taking their time over each and every mouthful. That said, my advice would be to catch the train to Dorking and allow the very knowledgeable and attentive waiting staff to suggest a fine wine to pair perfectly with each course.
Sorrel then, is a place for celebration, a treat for the pallet, somewhere I would encourage indulging in the nine course ‘Discovery’ menu created by Steve and his team. Having recently added a 4th AA Rosette to the restaurant’s already impressive accolades, I for one will definitely be returning.
