Cafés

  • Mullins Coffee Shop

    I've hit on a great place for lunch in Dorking. Wanna know more? Yes? Huddle in, I've got lots to tell.

  • Afternoon tea at Foxhills Resort, Surrey

    Let’s eat cake

    Pass the scones and cream, loosen your belts, it's time to eat cake. Here are six top tea spots in Surrey.

  • Exterior of modern building with pretty courtyard garden

    Seasons cafe

    If you're heading to The Lightbox - or even if you're not - make time for a stop at Seasons Cafe. You're going to love it.

  • Get quacking

    If you're planning a day trip to this quintessential English village, a stop off at the Dabbling Duck in Shere is a must

  • Two Many Cooks, Dorking

    If it's healthy, homemade food you're after, this small cafe is just the spot. And they do some pretty tasty cakes too

  • Muddy eats: Boxpark, Croydon

    Apparently, Croydon is more hipster than Shoreditch and Dalston. Or so I keep hearing. I'm yet to be convinced - but there's no doubting that Croydon has it's own brand of cool. And it's certainly on the up. While CR0 has yet to be overrun by big beards and man buns, but it has recently seen the arrival of Boxpark the pop-up drinking and dining hub based on the same one that was set up in Shoreditch in 2011. And Westfield, whilst a little further away, is also on the horizon.

  • Muddy eats: Bears at the Packhouse, Farnham

    So, you know the feeling. You’ve had your hair done, you’ve been waxed within an inch of your life, you’ve got a new outfit, your skin is dewy, your eyes sparkly, you’ve got your swagger going on. And People. Are. Checking. You. OUT. We all get a feel good day now and again. But believe […]

  • Muddy eats: The Green Rooms of Godstone

    I met a friend for a farewell brunch recently before she upped sticks and moved to the Dorset coast. The lucky thing timed that pretty well, didn’t she? It’s been all ice-cream and sandcastles at the beach since she got there – with possibly a little unpacking as well. Her life is now like one big […]

  • Muddy eats: Corretto in Godalming

    Very excited to tell you about Corretto bar in Godalming. I’m forever on the trail of funky places that do things a little bit differently, and this bar has its cool credentials up in lights. It romped it in as best bar in the Muddy Awards, which probably tells you something right there. It opened at the […]

  • Muddy Eats: Dexter Burger bar, Purley

    Who doesn’t love a burger, right? We certainly do in the Muddy Surrey house. But I’m also a bit discerning with what I eat. I prefer it when meat has been reared outdoors and grass fed. None of that mass produced meat for my family. I guess it comes from having grown up on an […]
