We visited on a Sunday afternoon, it was really quiet and we received good service and it was a nice relaxing place to sit. The toilets were a little grubby however and could do with some sorting out

Thankyou for your 4 star review. I assume you stopped by for a drink before or after lunch service as generally we are busy between 1pm and 4pm. I am surprised you consider our toilets 'grubby' as they are fully cleaned and sanitised every Sunday morning after a busy Saturday night. We are also the only venue in Farnham that... More

Thankyou for your 1 star review. Sorry but I have been unable to establish why you felt service received was poor as your review is very vague. We were exceptionally busy with Christmas parties, so I can only assume service was either rushed or you had to wait longer than normal for your meals. As for the manager being 'brusque'... More

We had walked into Farnham on 23 December and my son suggested we eat at Borellis Wine Bar & Grill. It was 13:30 and we went inside to find the place fairly busy. We asked the young helpful girl behind the bar if we could have a table for four people. We were advised that a table was just coming... More

Good menu with plenty of choice, friendly staff, nice atmosphere in bar and restaurant. Food was surprisingly good, loved my chicken spinach blue cheese stack, but everything was good and tasty and reasonable value. Atmosphere was really nice, and nice to be able to sit outside under the heaters.

Went to Borellis for a beer just before Christmas last year, it was an average experience with fairly over priced drinks. Nothing special.

Hi JetSetter Thankyou for your 4 star review. Our courtyard is one of the most popular spots in central Farnham, where you can enjoy lunch, dinner or just a drink or coffee away from The town's noisy gridlocked daily traffic. More

Despite Borelli's being close to the centre of town, part of its appeal to me is that it's tucked away in a quiet courtyard, which is great if you simply want to relax and eat in relative peace and quiet. The staff are both helpful and courteous, with ready smiles, and the restaurant and facilities are scrupulously clean and welcoming.... More

Description
Situated in the center of Farnham in Surrey. Borelli's is a contemporary Wine Bar and Steak Grill set in the beautiful historic Borelli Yard, being one of the best locations in Farnham, near to the central car park. The olive green and white walls, polished wood and tiled floors create a warm and welcoming space at night, while the big windows let in plenty of sunlight during the day. Dining alfresco during the warmer weather in the spacious courtyard is very popular. Borelli's lunch menu offers a wide selection of wraps, baguettes and jacket potatoes and a range of heartier options from £9-95. The a la carte menu offers seriously good chargrilled beef and chicken dishes. Chefs specials menu changes every week. The relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant, great bar scene and music, friendly service and a comprehensive wine list with many wines available by the glass. Saturday nights are very popular with an 80's night and a Comedy Club every month.
