Ashtead is a town with plenty of history, evidenced in the medieval cottages, ancient tiny town, Roman villa remains and references in the Domesday Book and Pepy's Diary. Today it’s a quiet, attractive commuter suburb next to Leatherhead and Epsom. The houses are beautiful and the roads are lined with chestnut trees. As a London commuter town, it also has excellent amenities, including a well-regarded independent shopping centre. You'll discover some great pubs, bars and restaurants in Ashtead, and you can walk off a lazy Sunday lunch on the pretty common, or head out to the rolling countryside beyond the town borders.
If you've spent the morning browsing some of the independent boutiques or visiting the ancient church, a long lunch will be most welcome at one of the restaurants in Ashtead. Why not enjoy a traditional meal in a British gastropub, with comfy leather chairs, a warm welcome and hearty portions? Or, treat yourself to an afternoon cream tea with a tiered stand of finger sandwiches, miniature cakes and fresh scones with cream and jam. Traditionally served with a big pot of tea, it's also delicious with a reviving coffee or a glass of something fizzy. Ashtead's restaurants have excellent lunchtime deals which make dining even more affordable, including set menus.
