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.

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

We were in Dorking doing some antique shopping on Saturday, and came across this little gem on West Street. We were tempted by the £12 for 2 courses lunch menu written on the blackboard outside, and having quickly checked the reviews on TA, we decided to give it a go. The food was delicious, and well presented. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

Today was our son's 20th and we decided to visit Dorking, we arrived quite late for lunch, but were greeted beautifully and showed to our table by the loveliest and super professional waitress. We decided to go for the £12 menu. The menu is very simple and we were expecting nice food but what we got was outstanding food! I... More

Mrs. Emptynesters and I were guests of local friends at Two to Four in mid-October. The service was excellent and quite faithful to genuine continental service. The menu is reasonably well varied and offers two price levels - set menu and a la carte - both excellent. The plating for all the courses was amazing - quite possibly the most... More

We have been here a number of times usually socially. I would recommend the food. Unfortunately the head staff sometimes make the dining experience a little uncomfortable. They have a habit of reprimanding the waiting staff in a loud manner and often in front of customers. Last time we were there the French head waiter was particularly unpleasant to the... More

We don't know the area at all so this visit was a bit of a gamble for a family get together. The gamble paid off with this lovely little restaurant which had a small but very well put together menu. I had kedgeree for a starter which was full of flavour and not too heavy. My family all ate from... More
