Caffé Amici

Potentially the smallest café/restaurant I have come across, but packed with rustic charm. The staff are all Italian and sell a great range of foodstuffs - the freshly made sandwiches on Italian breads are a must have at lunch and are so delicious!

The Press Room

Proves you don't need to live in zone 1 to get amazing coffee.

The Grove

Gastro pub with tasty food and a large beer garden.


Always loads of fun things for parties, balloons, costume, masks and accessories.

The Harts Boatyard

With large windows overlooking the Thames, this delightful restaurant makes it feel as if you're dining on a ship!

The Sunday Carvery

They serve a wonderful 3 course Sunday carvery where the beef is carved to you at your table with unlimited cocktails! the desserts were displayed on a cart, I've never experience Sunday roast like this before. Kids also get a smaller portion at a smaller price which was great!

Casa Viva

Best Italian food I've had in the area by far. Coupled with great service and a wonderful selection of wine.

Gordon Bennett!

A really popular bar/restaurant on tree-lined Maple Road.

The French Tarte

A bakery/café that everyone talks about for their unique breads and other delicacies.

Ristorante Sorrento

Sorrento in Tolworth serves amazing Italian food and at good value too.

Bosco Lounge

Great for a night out with friends, great vibe and amazing cocktails.

The Victoria

Recently refurbed pub with a traditional pub feel, it has a great atmosphere and outdoor seating areas with fireplaces to warm you up.

The French Table

This restaurant does delicious food! A wonderful place to celebrate any special occasion.


Langley's is lovely for an evening drink and their food menu is good. Gets a little loud on Wednesdays when it's Ladies Night!

"Great transport links. Lovely high street. Close to Kingston"

February 2015


"Surbiton is extremely peaceful and friendly. I live in a residential area that has a warmth to it. Crime rates are exceptionally low and people seem very friendly. Rent is reasonable as well and with trains into central London that only take 20 minutes, it is in an ideal location for commuting or just general sight seeing. There is something quite lovely about travelling past the London Eye and Houses of Parliament on the way ... more

"I love living in the leafy outskirts of suburban London with the enchanting River Thames on your doorstep - while I'm able to reach the centre of town and all the fun that it has to offer in just 15 minutes by train! Being very close to the Surrey County border, I can drive out to the North Downs and Box Hill effortlessly in 30 minutes and reach the seaside in just over one hour!"
