The soft crab was my husbands favourite and my son and girl friend favoured the calamari for starters. Then we had 1/2 a duck between the four of us which was delicious followed... read more

Good food but lacking in atmosphere, however to be fair it was a Thursday night, bill was a tad high, all in possibly due to the cost of the wine. Overall one of the better Chinese restaurants in Dorking. Long and short, would go again so don't be put off.

For our Christmas party this year, we chose the Fountain Garden and are glad we did! Our party of twelve was made to feel very welcome and we were looked after very well. Most of us opted for a chef's special which included a starter platter, and the chef's choice of main dishes. Everything was flavourful, beautifully presented and plentiful.

We were made very welcome as soon as we stepped inside. The restaurant was clean and comfortable. Our family, which included girls of 14 and 11, were all warmly and politely greeted. The menu offered many choices. Our main courses (duck, monk fish and lemon chicken) were well presented and delicious. The helpings were generous. The service was attentive. Including... More

A group of 5 had lunch on a Sunday in July 2014 and we were the only ones there!! (We are normally put off by empty restaurants, but had booked in advance) We decided on a set menu for ease of ordering. However, the same food ordered separately might have worked out cheaper. The food was well presented and very... More

We went here as soon as they opened as we had children ranging from 7 to 13. From the moment we got there it felt like we were an imposition. I asked for a table and the waiter looked less than pleased, so I checked whether we needed to book, he said yes, but then made up a table for... More

Yet again they serve up a mouth watering Chinese meal. Why do people eat Chinese anywhere else in Dorking? There just isn't anything to match this place for miles.

I've visited here a couple of times before while visiting my parents. It's a lovely old country pub. It has a large seating area to the side of the pub and a few tables at the front. Inside it is separated into 3 or 4 different areas. It feels very cosy and comfy. The staff are friendly and Alex the... More

Been here a number of times now and hope to return soon. Quality of the food is fantastic and there is so much to chose from on the menu! Have never been disappointed by any of the dishes. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Takeaways are of the same high quality as the restaurant. Would highly recommend!!!
