Description: Consistently praised as one of Croydon's top restaurants by TripAdvisor reviewers, Nineteen at Farleigh Golf Club is a relaxed bar and restaurant set amongst 350 acres in the North Surrey Downs. With a casual bar menu available for those seeking a relaxed meal, the bar provides high tables or coffee tables for you to settle in and watch sport on the HD TVs. On a sunny day, enjoy the outdoors with a meal on the terrace overlooking the putting green. For a true gourmet experience, pull up a seat in the restaurant area with sweeping views of the golf course and surrounding areas including Canary Wharf and South-East London. In partnership with Andy Castle (The Inked Chef), Farleigh's menu provides seasonal dishes with a twist, as well as a delicious afternoon tea. We passionately source local produce including working with local butchers for the best bacon rolls in Surrey, plus bakers and dairies to incorporate the finest ingredients in our menu. Sunday lunch, served in our function suite, is a particular favourite. The restaurant is decorated with limited edition photographs and seats up to 80 guests. Function suites are also available, ideal for birthday, anniversary or other parties. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, and available for private hire in the evenings.

“Fantastic wedding”
Reviewed 10 April 2014 via mobile

Our daughter got married at Farleigh on the 28March. It was a perfect day. I have read oldie076 below and agree with much of what he has written. Sam made the planning so easy. She accommodated all our requests and made many useful suggestions. Of course the real test is on the day. We had everything we were promised and more. The food was even better than at the pre wedding tasting but what really made the day was the staff. They were all so helpful and friendly. Many of the guests commented on little extra things they did to make their day enjoyable.
Would recommend the venue to anyone.

“Carvery For Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

I am a golf member of Farleigh, and in the past have only snacked at the bar (and had a lot of beer, obviously). But I thought I'd try the food by bringing my family to the carvery. I have two boys: one who will eat anything, one who is tremendously fussy.

Nothing to worry about here though: the starters were excellent and quite varied (including, to my fussy eater's delight pork pie!) and my wife ate enough to almost warrant skipping the main meal. The roasts were turkey, beef and pork. Between us we tried the lot (OK, I had all 3) and it was well cooked and plentiful. The vegetables were also good: on the firm side which is how they should be. Deserts were amazing: a real highpoint. Chocolate cakes, cheesecakes, mousses...all good.

The venue is in a room off the main bar area, not in the main restaurant. The restaurant has better views than the carvery room (which I gather is also used as a conference and wedding venue), but the room itself is fine. It is a little more pricey than a pub carvery but I believe the smaller scale of the operation ensures a higher quality control. And I can't be alone: it was packed. We had a half hour wait for a table. Book early!

“Great venue for a wedding”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Our daughter had her wedding reception there recently. There are so many things that you have to organise for a wedding and the reception is obviously a crucial part of it - so we were understandably nervous whether all would be OK. But from the moment that we arrived at Farleigh everything ran really smoothly.

All the planning arrangements were agreed with Sam beforehand. It was a delight dealing with her, as she was very flexible in making adjustments that we required. Our only regret was that she was not there on the actual day, but Marc kept us all under control very discretely on the day, without a hitch.

We used the new entrance at the side of the building, so that the guests did not have to pass by the golfers to get to the room, which was appreciated. We used two of the suites - one for the initial drinks, and the other for the meal. The rooms were laid out attractively and the amplification arrangements efficient. The waiting staff were very courteous, and we have had comments from the guests as to how helpful they were.

We were slightly nervous about the food, but it was much better than at the prior food tasting, and was delicious.

Combined with beautiful weather and a wonderful church service beforehand, this made a great ending to a really memorable day for our daughter and her husband. Thank you Farleigh!

“Lunch”

I went to Farleigh last weekend for lunch with my family. Lovely place, great space outside for when the weather is good as well. The service was excellent fast, friendly and they were very good with my little girls. The food was excellent, fresh and tasty. Will defiantly be going back.
