SIMPLY SUBLIME

Last night's Supper Club shows that commitment and quality counts, that even a small place backed, it is true, by an established catering company, can punch well above its weight. Some while back I was discouraged by the patronising response to a question put to a member of staff. That was... read more

Might not be a totally fair criticism but you cant get a decent seat in this cafe. It always feels very crowded and also find the portion sizes very small and hence not such good valid for money. If you like high quality crowded places then try it but not my taste sadly.

.....But I am afraid that the staff are not welcoming. I used to go very often because of the coffee and I do understand they must be under such pressure now that the new Waitrose is open but customers should be made welcome. I left before eating last time because of a very grumpy comment from a member of staff.... More

Not only is Two Many Cooks a lovely cafe to go for breakfast coffee or lunch but once a month they do a supper club with a set menu for £25 per head. We went to their most recent one and had a delicious meal. We were greeted with a glass of Prosecco and then had wild garlic gnocchi to... More

Consistently high standard of food and generally friendly service, Two Many Cooks is a testament to independent trading in Dorking!

I've called in for lunch a few times at both Dorking and Reigate. On Wednesday I was on my own and in a rush, so had a take away - and though I rarely put pen to paper to say WOW - I will this time. The salad - couscous, pomegranate, chickpeas, nuts and other surprises was just fabulous, and... More

The food is of a very high standard and offers a good selection of healthy and indulgent choices. The food all has a very homemade feel to it and is delicious. However I have noticed recently that the portions are getting smaller and the prices are going up. The delicious scotch eggs have gone up by £1 and the savory... More

I come here sometimes for lunch. You might think it's just a coffee shop but actually the food is excellent, and, for lunchtime fare, some of the best i've had in Dorking. There is always a tart of the day, various salads (one always based on cous-cous) and there is always a soup of the day, nice juices, tea, coffee... More

TMC is a lovely shop, serves really fresh food, super egg and soldiers with sour dough toast. The lunches are super too. My favourite coffee stop in Dorking. Always wonderful service too.
