Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

What a great surprise !
This restaurant is fantastic !
Fresh food , well presented , excellent decor, helpful knowledgable staff & a great wine list / cocktail menu ,
The only real downside is it's not FREE !
It's not cheap But no overpriced ,
Kitchen closes a tad earlier than I would prefer , but it's not in London .
Starters £4-8
Mains £10-20

“Good place, would recommend.”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Firstly, lovely venue. Both inside and out.

Very welcoming. Nice menu. For starters we had pate, chutney, goats cheese and bread. Was very very nice.

Cocktail menu was good - tried 4 different ones and all very nice!

Main was very good - although both me and my girlfriend enjoyed the starter more so.

Everyone working were all very nice (maybe even a bit to nice?) and we would recommend any of our friends who are going to Dorking to eat her.

It is slightly expensive, but I'd say its worth it.

Lovely meal.

“Top class restaurant, top class food.”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

I visited LDH at the weekend and had a fantastic meal. Scallops and smoked trout salad were fresh and very summery. Dexter Rib eyes cooked to perfection with mushrooms and salad were excellent. Simple food cooked extremely well with some nice touches.

Service was smooth and understated as it should be. The young barman was engaging and made us two new summer cocktails we while waited for our table.

The outside terrace is stunning and unfortunately for us was completely full. I doubt there are many prettier places to eat and drink at this time of year.

I've been a regular at LDH since it reopened. There have clearly been staff changes which are all for the better as far as I can see. The fact that Trip Advisor is allowing, what is clearly, a smear campaign discredits them and my advice to anyone reading these reviews is to ignore them. This is a top class restaurant consistently serving top class food.
