Nestled amongst the antique shops in the artsy end of Dorking, Surrey, Two to Four is an exciting space that is on every local gourmands speed dial. Named after its street address, 2-4 West Street, this bright and modern restaurant – which is run by local restaurateur Paul Montalto - is spread out over three floors in a charming old whitewashed building, and the intimate ambience is ideal for romantic tables à deux and intimate dinner parties. Head Chef Rob Gathercole has created a robust modern Euro menu, and signature dishes include the slow-roasted pork belly with confit onions; coconut risotto; and the roasted scallops with cauliflower and raisin puree.

Excellent food and service

Our second visit to this delightful restaurant. A genuine welcome on arrival and unobtrusive service throughout. Food was exquisite. I'm a great fan of sea bass and this rates as some of the best I've ever had - succulent fish with a crispy top - on an olive mash with samphire and crispy courgettes... read more

We went along to 2 to 4 for my birthday celebration last night and it was amazing. We booked a few weeks ago and then on the day looked at the online menu and noticed that the evening was to be a gourmet tasting event with paired wines. At £65 a head we thought it was excellent value so we... More

We have just had a sensational lunch for 13 people at Two -Four West Street Dorking. The menu gave us a varied choice but 8 of us chose the roast. Delicious. The service was very discreet but very attentive. We will all be going again.

Here's the challenge. Surrey lacks great places to eat. We went on a Saturday night in January and sat upstairs. The acoustics work against couples. There were two biggish tables in and their noise tends to dominate the room. The service is fine. The food was good, not exceptional but the prices put it pretty high end. So average is... More

fine food served in 3 rooms giving a great atmosphere at a reasonable price. When busy service can drop.

This is a great restaurant which has 3 floors. It has a warm approach from the staff who were very helpful when we wanted to change things on the menu. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. so pleased we found this restaurant it's an absolute gem. We can't wait to go back and try their gourmet night.

I am so unhappy with the food we were served tonight. We looked forward to a night out at a local restaurant . We have eaten here before in the summer and enjoyed the experience. I will give the drinks menu 10 but the food follows at a poor 6. The starter had a strange taste if you like scallops... More

To expensive for what they serve. The food was average and small portions. Waitress was not serving with a smile and for £ 100 for 2 people I expect better !!

This is the second time we have visited this restaurant. We enjoy the menu choice and the dishes are well prepared and presented. The restaurant also has a pleasant atmosphere. However, the service has been patchy on both occasions. The owners employ some young (and very polite staff) who have little idea on what to do. On our first visit... More
