Kids eating out

  • 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.

  • Muddy eats: Blue @ The George, Old Oxted

  • The Sun Inn, Chobham

    A few weeks ago I was coming back from an appointment with my eldest Mudlet, and we somehow found ourselves in Chobham, that lovely village not far from Woking. It was all a bit of a happy accident, actually, after I took a wrong turn and then left it to the cross-your-fingers-and-hope-we-end-up-somewhere-I-recognise school of navigation. It’s turned […]
