Description: 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.

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

Having heard good things about the restaurant we decided to give it a go last night, we had been many years ago and the place had been so cold I had worn my coat throughout the meal. so this time warmly dressed we re- visited. The service and knowledge of the staff was very poor, we asked what the soup... More

The waiting staff seem a little nervous and over anxious to please when they're not busy but that will change and for a small local restaurant there are not enough options at the cheaper end of the wine list but the food is excellent and includes innovative little touches such as the pan fried garlic breadcrumbs on the risotto and...

We decided to visit Two to Four for dinner last night for the first time and it was excellent. Jill, one of the owners is absolutely charming as are all the staff, attentive and helpful but not intrusive. Their were four of us and we all had drinks, 3 courses and wine all for under £55 per head (including service).... More

We were in Dorking and wanted some lunch, we found Two to Four and decided to have lunch. The setting is comfortable and friendly staff. The food was outstanding, unusual, great produce. The good thing is they do not give you any bread, so when your food arrives you have not filled yourself up with bread and you really appreciate... More

To start off, I want to make a point that the food was really good; although for the price that's expected. Unfortunately the service we received did not match the quality of the food. The waitress was clearly on her first shift and very inexperienced, so you can't blame her. New waiting staff should be trained before serving customers; in... More

I am very grateful to my cousin for choosing and booking this place. My fiancee and I ate here together with my two cousins and their husbands last Sunday. We never stopped talking and I was just conscious of how the professional young staff remained almost inconspicuous but attentive to every need we had. The food was attractively presented and...

if you're after honest, wholesome food with a provenance, get yourself into Two to Four. One of the lovely local independent eateries in Dorking that is well worth trying.

The occasion was a casual lunch with family. Had no particular expectations good or bad. But, what a delightful surprise Two to Four was. Very pleasant service. Charming ambiance in the small dining room. The food was nicely presented and delicious. Baked hake on a bed of white beans and chorizo was truly extraordinary. Small, creative menu, but everything was... More
