Fabulous surroundings and lively atmosphere

The converted church makes for a striking venue, and the food and drinks live up to the setting. We enjoyed just one course as we were pushed for time but it was well presented, particularly the roast suckling pig.

A quirky building, its a church, beautiful day and night, fantastic food and exceptional service the waiters and waitresses know their foods and wines, we go here for very special occasions as its a little on the pricey side but so worth it.

Had a meal here with my family. We arrive a little shortly before the kitchen opened and were welcomed and seated where we had drinks beforehand. Once the kitchen was open we were sat at our table and the food and drinks were second to none. The waitress and my family taught each other something about the varying sizes of... More

There are two reasons why I'm only scoring this restaurant average. Firstly we had to send our olives back, very bad taste and secondly the service was painfully slow. We were left just sitting with the menu for at least 20 minutes before anyone acknowledged us! Although having said that, the staff were very friendly and did apologise for the... More

Lovely surroundings in a deconsecrated church. Good service but high prices. Plenty of choice on the menu Parking is a problem Stairs into restaurant may deter those with mobility problems

I have visited this restaurant on many occasions and it is one of my favourite restaurants in Godalming. The service has always been excellent, as has the food and wine. They also do exceptional cocktails! The building itself is an old church which has been beautifully converted. I have visited for brunch, dinner and a Sunday roast, and although it... More

We visited while staying with friends. An uplifting and super friendly welcome from Mari-Claire, expert service, including a taste of the house wine before deciding, and the most comforting roast beef and suckling pig Sunday lunches - we were in heaven! The deserts were also up to the mark and delicious! Mari-Claire came over to say her shift had finished... More

Spur of the moment decision this morning to come here for lunch. After getting stuck in traffic on the M25 and arriving 30mins later than booked. A phone call ahead and they couldn't have been more understanding. Then came the menu and difficult decision of what to have. So much choice and they all ticked the boxes. Out came the... More

We use the Bel & Dragon regularly - for family celebrations, leisurely lunches, quick drop in for a bite to eat, even had Christmas Day dinner here last year. We are always assured a warm welcome by the manageress, Mari-Clare. The food is consistently good and great value. But we mostly come here knowing that we will be looked after.... More
