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!

This fabulous farmers' market is on Maple Road every third Saturday of the month. There are 26 stalls of fresh farm produce and speciality foods, and it's a great place for meeting friends in the adjoining bars and restaurants. All surplus proceeds go to local charities.

"I love Surbiton because of the friendly atmosphere and the farmers' market."
"A beautiful area that is great for families. 10 minutes to Clapham Junction. Great walks by the river and good schools too!"
"Great transport links. Lovely high street. Close to Kingston"
"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

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!"
