“NEVER AGAIN TERRIBLE.. What a disappointment..”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

Denbies from the road looks extremely inviting. Beautiful vineyard set in the Surrey Hills looks stunning through all seasons. If you are thinking of stopping for tea forget it. I met with friends for an after Christmas catch up quite looking forward to tea at Denbies. What a disappointment. You walk through the shop to get to the downstairs restaurant/tea shop. It lacked any charm and just reminded me of a large canteen.

Cream tea for two consists of two scones, one very small pot of jam and one small tub of clotted cream and a pot of tea no fresh jug of milk just cartons (this is between two) all for the pricely sum of £7.50. What a total rip off. I complain to the staff that for the cost you can't even supply a fresh jug of milk. Staff completely not interested.

In my advice look at the beautiful scenery as you drive pass. Head out to Gomshall and try Tillings what a difference plenty of parking, great service, fab food, honest pricing and buckets of charm.
