Description: Situated in the center of Farnham in Surrey. Borelli's is a contemporary Wine Bar and Steak Grill set in the beautiful historic Borelli Yard, being one of the best locations in Farnham, near to the central car park. The olive green and white walls, polished wood and tiled floors create a warm and welcoming space at night, while the big windows let in plenty of sunlight during the day. Dining alfresco during the warmer weather in the spacious courtyard is very popular. Borelli's lunch menu offers a wide selection of wraps, baguettes and jacket potatoes and a range of heartier options from £9-95. The a la carte menu offers seriously good chargrilled beef and chicken dishes. Chefs specials menu changes every week. The relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant, great bar scene and music, friendly service and a comprehensive wine list with many wines available by the glass. Saturday nights are very popular with an 80's night and a Comedy Club every month.

“LOVE the new bar menu!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Borellis is a well know restaurant/bar/cafe in Farnham. The food in the restaurant upstairs is always AMAZING and never fails to impress, and their new bar menu for during the day is also really good. The drinks in the evenings are a little pricier than the other bars around Farnham, and there are quite a few 'older' clients who drink there - making it sometimes feel a little uncomfortable for the younger ladies, but all in all its a really nice place to be and has a great patio outside if you're after some sun or fresh air. I highly recommend eating and drinking at Borellis!

“Excellent new grill menu!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Had an excellent meal from the new grill menu. Fillet and Ribeye steaks perfectly cooked and with the added bonus of 2 for 1 offer with taste card Mon - Thurs so our meal was half price! Lovely venue with a courtyard area for a summers evening. Def worth a visit.

“Glam but pricey”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Very nice little place - it felt glam and special. The food was good but I feel a bit pricey for what it is. Saying that though, we would go back - it definately has something about it that makes it feel special.

Thankyou for your positive comments regarding the look and feel of Borelli's. I am sorry you felt we were expensive, it is hard to comment as you do not mention your chosen dishes.
Our new Grill menu is proving to be a huge success, now only in its second week. Our steak sales are already double to last year, with many other dishes proving to be a big hit.
As regards value we offer some great promotions on our website and 50% off all courses
[max 2 people] Monday to Thursdays with Tastecard. We also offer many popular dishes at only £8-95. Please try us again and take advantage of one of our great offers.

“Brilliant little café/bar in Farnham…”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

This is a cracking little bar tucked away off the main drag - we visited with a friend who is local to the town, otherwise we'd never have discovered it! It seems to be one of Farnham's best kept secrets!
Friendly staff and a fab menu - the salads are to die for! I had a Tuna Nicoise salad - amazing, never tasted a tuna steak like it, sweet and juicy. My wife had the Thai Beef salad and was equally impressed. Our friend opted for the Ardennes paté which looked really good, although it was accompanied by three pieces of slightly too-small toasted french bread - but she enjoyed it nonetheless.
For a Saturday light lunch, it was the perfect place, away from the crowds and bustle of The Borough with a relaxed, informal feeling. Nice little courtyard area with seating outside which is really quite lovely on a sunny day. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

“A Great Place to Eat”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

My wife and I do not actually live in Farnham, (we live a few miles away), but we often like to visit the town. Last Saturday we were in Farnham and decided to try Borelli's for a light lunch - the only reference we had for it was that it was where our daughter met her future husband! - we had never visited it before.
We sat at a table for two by the window and my wife had a tomato & basil soup and I had a brie and bacon baguette and a bowl of French fries. Both were delicious and good-sized portions. We finished off with coffee that was really nice.
We were really impressed by the ambience and the attentive service provided by the young members of staff. We would recommend the restuarant and It is certainly our intention to pay another visit when we next come to Farnham.
