The Chardonnay is consistently good. Its main menu hasn't changed much over the years, but contains a wealth of favourites, including excellent Chateaubriand and Dover Sole.. Food is served imaginatively on a range of different Villeroy & Boch plates, in comfortable, cosy surroundings. There's a good wine list, with many excellent choices below £20 per bottle, and the service is... More

Have always wanted to try this restaurant as passed it many times on the A24. Very quaint little play with cosy atmosphere, in need of a little updating but still charming. The food was really delicious, the duck liver pate superb, beef brisket super tasty, pear and ginger upside down pudding a new favourite to add to my own menus.... More

We had driven by this restaurant many, many times over the years and friends who had visited it invited us to join them for dinner there. The atmosphere and the décor are both good, service was friendly and efficient,and the food was very tasty. I enjoyed my avocado and bacon salad starter, my husband enjoyed his crab gateau starter. The... More

The general appearance of the establishment is appealing, although the proximity of the main road is slightly disconcerting. It can be hot in the conservatory on a sunny day. The food was of a high standard. Halibut, not a fish easily found, perfectly grilled on a bed of artistic vegetable and flavoured mash, followed by a range of three perfectly... More

Just been to Chardonnay for lunch, first visit, service and food exceptionally good. We had the twice baked cheese soufflé to start followed by the smoked brisket which seemingly takes 72 hours to prepare and the floating islands, the quality and presentation of all courses was first class and the flavours very pleasing. Looking forward to our next visit.

My first & main comment is simply that "This place never disappoints" This is at least my 7th visit here over the past 4 years, and although it's not the cheapest, it's perfect for special occasions with it's own style & ambience that I really like. The food is very consistent & of a high quality & the service is... More

We 'phoned and booked for lunch. We had their set menu to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Wonderful ambiance, thoughtful and caring welcome and service, without being over powering. Delightful and comfortable setting. Lovely touches, especially the petit four and the special plate that was decorated to wish us a 'Happy Anniversary' The food was delicious and portions a good size.... More

My wife and I had been meaning to visit the Chardonnay for some time and so I booked it as part of her Birthday present. The greeting at the door was far from warm and friendly and the inside décor felt more like an old tea house than I restaurant. Our table for two was more of a bird table... More
