We were surprised how busy Cote in Dorking was, but despite this, we received our usual warm welcome. The food is always reliably good and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
By far our favourite restaurant. Excellent team; good food, lively atmosphere. Few, if any, pubs can match this level of cooking, service and ambiance for the same money. Keep it up and we'll keep coming - and bringing our friends too.
All Cote restaurants are consistently good but Dorking has the edge for location , food and service . Inside or outside on a warm day it’s a great place to eat.
