Cafés

  • 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 […]

    • Muddy Eats: The Water’s Edge, Horsell

      I’ve had my beady eye on The Water’s Edge at Horsell near Woking since it opened early this year. This new café on the site of Heather Farm, a wetlands centre on Horsell Common, is my idea of heaven. Its specialty is gorgeously simple food, made from organic, locally produced ingredients, served in a relaxed environment with […]

    • Day tripper: Chobham

      Do you know your Chobham from your Cobham? Be honest. I know I’m not the only one. I confess that until recently, I thought they were one and the same. But then they’re not a million miles apart (12 actually), both demographically and geographically. But while Cobham has been nicknamed the Beverley Hills of Britain (with more […]

      • FOUR GO TO PAINSHILL, COBHAM

        I recently stumbled across a fabulous place for a day out with the family. How is it, I have not found it sooner? I love a good wander around a garden, as my family know only too well. And when you add a cafe that serves good coffee and cake, you’re on to a sure-fire winner in […]
