Very tasty sandwiches in a relaxing atmosphere

Two Many Cooks is small...but perfectly formed. It has a rustic interior with a mixture of separate tables and large shared one. Either way, I had an extremely tasty toasted sandwich and a pot of tea and was able to chill out for a while. Every time I use an independent cafe / restaurant I... read more

Coffee is lovely, pâté even better but what is really outstanding is the lovely cooks that serve you. Not only are they charming and dressed in such a lovely blue tee shirts that coordinate with the cafe they create a relaxed ambience which means you want to return

I ordered the wild mushroom and thyme soup. It came with good home made focaccia and was reasonably priced. Service was very friendly, efficient and welcoming. I will definitely return as all the food options look very inviting.

A really nice place to stop for a bite to eat, a nice cup of tea and friendly efficient service. Not the widest range of sandwiches but they are all top notch. Fresh bread, good quality ingredients and good service. The place is clean and the staff friendly without imposing on you. I often stop as a little personal treat... More

This is, for my money, the best coffee in Dorking hands down. It's a small place and gets busy, especially at weekend - if it's sunny, there are tables outside and it's nice to watch the world go by. The menu is good (short but with some very tasty options) and they use a lot of artisan / local products.... More

Excellent coffee, great service and delicious gluten free cake that makes me feel just a little less guilty for my indulgence....

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.

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 certainly not the case last night where the welcome,... More
