One of the best restaurants in Godalming

Great food, friendly staff and wonderful style. Even if not eating, always come here for a pre dinner drink. Great bar area, albeit a little small but staff always chatty and interested. Does a mean Hendricks gin & tonic. Would recommend

I love this restaurant as it has amazing space (it's located in an old church building) and the staff are always attentive and pleasant. The food is very tasty - worth a visit...

Eaten here several times (it's about a 40 minute drive for us) and we really like the place. Staff are welcoming, happy and knowledgeable. Great (changing) menu in a stunning converted church and excellent food. Wines are fabulous but try the "house". No, it's not cheap, but it is an "eating and drinking experience" and reasonable value. Great place for... More

The place is just stunning... Staff all very polite and helpful. But it is just so overpriced... I mean £8.00 for a glass of wine! and £8.00 for a Chicken and Avocado Sandwich... Just not worth it!... They seriously need to look at their prices... Clearly why there were only a few people in their at lunch time!

Was not impressed on the whole!.. The price was high for not very much food, but worst of all, despite the claims on in the small print, they added a whopping £4.88 tip without my consent. Tipping should be optional, and so should being allowed to be able to tip what you think is appropriate for the food and service,... More

Came to this restaurant on a spare of the moment thing. Have driven past it so many times but not been in it! The building is lovely and makes the whole evening that bit more special. Equally, the staff try to ensure your evening is the best it can and were all very attentive and friendly at all times. My... More

Contained within a former church, close to the high street with good parking. The food is excellent as too is the service provided by a friendly and accommodating staff. By no means our first visit and will certainly not be the last whether it be for an evening meal or, as on this occassion, Sunday lunch.

We visited on aMonday and it was as to be expected, quiet. A beautiful building and a tastefully designed interior. The waiting staff were very friendly and professional. I ordered a £23 steak and chips and my wife a £12 Smoked Haddock and Choritzo Stew. They arrived and we were speechless. Mu tasteless and thin steak was no larger than... More

This was our second visit to this lovely restaurant in a week - first for a birthday and this trip for Sunday Brunch with Gospel singing. As a converted chapel/church right next to Godalming High Street (with easy parking), this restaurant is part of a small chain in the area. The service is excellent (thank you Mari and Helena particularly)... More

Excellent food, great service. Would recommend this, especially in the summer, for Sunday lunch. Then a stroll to the river to listen to the various bands that play throughout the summer.
