Strada Cobham - I’d eaten at Strada in Cobham a few years ago yet wasn’t drawn back for a second visit. When they invited me to come for dinner I admit, I was a bit dubious. But big changes have happened. The hedgefund owners have sold to a passionate individual (Hugh Osmond, who famously floated Pizza Express). Upon […]
La Capanna - Valentine’s Day! Normally something we’d stay home for, but in the interest of the blog we braved the sea of couples at La Capanna in Cobham for their special Valentine’s Day set menu. It’s a cute old 16th century cottage that I’ve long wanted to see the inside of. The evening started out interestingly, we […]
Cafe Aromas - A bit of sun and a bit of free time allowed me to bip to Cobham to check out Cafe Aromas. Cafe Aromas is located on a quiet street just off the high street. There’s not much traffic so it’s enjoyable to sit on the pavement in front without traffic whizzing by. (Obviously I’m behind […]
The Old Plough Stoke D’Abernon - We went out for a Sunday lunch and got stuck in traffic. Unable to turn around because we’d find ourselves in even heavier traffic, we found ourselves at The Old Plough in Stoke D’Abernon. The Old Plough is a sister pub to our beloved The Red Lion in Horsell. They belong to a small group […]
The Cricketers Downside - Lunch #2 with my Father-in-Law, this time with his sister as well. I knew they would love the Olde Worlde charm of The Cricketers in Downside, near Cobham. I used to go here regularly when I first moved to the area, but eventually the food and high prices drove me away. New owners took over […]
Hothouse Cafe - There’s always that place that looks intriguing when you drive past, that friends rave about but you never quite manage to venture in. That was The Hothouse Cafe at The Medicine Garden in Cobham for us. A place always in the back of our mind that we never quite got around to visiting, until now. […]
Cleaver - With a husband’s birthday to celebrate we decided nothing is more manly than a burger and rib joint so decided to try Cleaver in Cobham for his birthday dinner. A new brand by Prezzo, Cobham was the first of the Cleaver locations (currently at five.) The interior is interesting, the cynic would argue it’s contrived […]
The Black Swan Ockham - Summer weather + Sunday = Pub garden! We decided to test out the garden at The Black Swan gastropub in Ockham to see why it’s so popular. Being a sunny Sunday the pub was packed, inside and out. Which created a good buzz but understandably made for a longer than usual wait for food and […]
Fego Caffe - With the kids home for half term we braved the option of taking them with us for a lunch review. We chose Fego in Cobham as we had both been a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. Plus the kid’s menu looked good. Street or town lot parking. With the two of us […]
