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... read 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.

When this restaurant opened it was great. Then it lost its way. Under new owners it's been revamped - but it's now just an overpriced rip off. Shoulder of lamb used to mean a decent shoulder joint - now it's a small portion of compressed lamb - the previous joint must now equate to three portions on the latest menu.... More

We stopped for lunch at the Bel and the Dragon as a stopover from Gatwick to Wiltshire after dismissing several eating places in he area. Very impressed with the feel of the dining area and the quality of the offerings on the interesting lunchtime menu. The three were more than pleased with their choices: fish pie, omelette with wild mushrooms... More

Really enjoyed our meal here but did find it expensive that you have to order your potatoes and veg seperately. It soon adds up to an expensive dish. Also gravy on wooden boards just doesn't work. But food was good and the staff were very welcoming. Will return

We took our daughter out to celebrate the end of a week of mocks as she had always wanted to dine there. She was not disappointed. I had trouble deciding on which wine to have so the waitress kindly brought me a taste of each. The white burgundy won. Several times! Scallops, whitebait and mussels were our starters, all tasted...

Loved this restaurant. Such an amazing conversion it had me wondering what it looked like before it was the restaurant. Amazing food. Absolutely loved the whitebait. Will come again for sure.
