We went to Mullins for my sister in laws baby shower. It was perfect. Everyone was attentive, kind and the food was delicious. They were accommodating to our food requests and there were empty plates all round. I've already booked to go back!

The best ever service in my life, I felt like a special guest in a 5 star restaurant but at the same time I could feel the warmth and kindness of the family business. Went there for the afternoon tea, very good food quality and...quantity. The team was topping up our tea pot, we were invited to have a look at the cakes before ordering and could feel that extra care.More

Reviewed 8 November 2021

We went here as a group of 4 friends for a morning tea. First of all a man working there barked loudly at us to sanitise our hands before we had properly walked in (quite rude we thought, as most places don't treat customers like...children). We sat down and ate, with some teas and drinks (okay, but nothing special). Then the barking man (waiter) while removing the items from the table accidentally tipped food down the back of one of our group, as he was rushing too much. He apologised & hastily dabbed at the clothing with a cleaning up cloth, saying it was fine, all gone - but we could all see the greasy mark it had left on her top. When we later went to pay, we expected, but did not receive, any small discount at all, or any repeat of the apology. He still charged full whack. My friend was very peed off with him. We got the feeling it was a place to quickly eat & drink but not linger. It was not a relaxing place to go, we did not enjoy the experience and will not go there again. My friend had to go home and make a special effort to remove the greasy cream stain from her top, and she was furious with his man. None of the 4 of us have seen this sort of thing happen before anywhere, and we are all seasoned travellers. We called it Fawlty Towers, after the tv show. Best avoided, as there are better places in Dorking and with more relaxed atmospheres.More
