My husband and I went to Bel and the Dragon on a Tuesday evening about 8pm after a trip to the cinema for his birthday. We had been wanting to try it again after a great experience a few years ago. Well, you know how they say 'never go back'......? Firstly, it was one of the coldest days of the... More

Amazing food. Great cocktails. Unbeatable venue. Great for all - couples families parties. A local favourite. We visit monthly. Scallops and Suckling pig always good.

Booked a table here for partners 70th. Food and service were fine, and the atmosphere is good - it used to be a church - but it was very cold. They gave us a fan heater, but I ended up eating my meal fully dressed for the outside, scarf, thick anorak, woolly hat.. One of the waitresses said it was... More

Godalming's a funny place. Bags of character, historic, charming yet, should you venture into a pub for a pre-lunch drink you might find that it is very much pot luck if you will find one with a nice atmosphere and clientele! We were lucky, we hit upon The Star, were welcomed, given the best service and the tastiest best-kept beer.... More

Excellent service despite us being 45 mins late due to problems on the M25 - saw the bags of Christmas pressies and immediately brought out crackers etc to add to the festivities - competent wine list - out of few items on the menu which was a shame as it narrowed the choice quite a bit. Love the environment and... More

We booked a table for lunch yesterday with my family and two granddaughters. I have been here before and was not overly impressed as found it pretentious but not to the extend that I felt a review necessary. This time I definately need to post one. This restaurant is located in a vast converted church which I find lacks any... More

Lovely lovely restaurant! In an old church was literally amazed it's absolutely beautiful. Roast was literally the best I've ever had - very impressed. Service was good apart from waited quite long for the bill so ended up walking downstairs and paying at the bar.

Good bits: stunning good food: pink pepper corn squid: great Scallops and beetroot starters: superb Duck and hake main course plus extras full of flavour: beautifully balanced. The bad bits: we were upstairs: over the top Xmas garland on stairs means going up was dodgy and risky, even worse going down! Nothing to hold on. All vision is obscured by... More
