Nestled in a leafy corner of Epsom, Surrey, between the Derby racecourse and the town centre, the Chalk Lane Hotel is a cosy inn within easy reach of numerous historical homes, family attractions and walking paths. Surrounded by lush countryside, The Restaurant at Chalk Lane is a perfect setting for romantic meals, business meetings and celebrations with friends and family, and Head Chef Vincent Hiss has created a classic French-led Euro menu to please every palate. We love the terrine of rabbit confit served with toasted sour dough, apple and mizuno leaves; the scallops with black bream, saffron mash, baby leeks and spinach with Bouillabaisse sauce; and the rhubarb soufflé served with red wine and marscapone ice cream.

    Maitre de made the experience exceptional. Food was ok. For some reason the menu description didn't match the actual plate of food. Rump of lamb was chewy. Reconsider butcher!

    It was a lovely place tucked away off a small lane. Unfortunately for us, it was a Wednesday and the four of us were the only diners that evening so the ambience was disappointing. However the food was wonderful and of course the attention from then staff was impeccable. We'll definitely go back, but hopefully on a busy night.

    Enjoyable Sunday lunch, great food. Very quiet, only 3 tables with guests when we were there but only about 11 tables in total anyway. Sunday has a set menu which I felt was very reasonably priced. 3 courses was about £28 a head but the food was excellant have put pictures up and it is fine dining. Really enjoyed

    Formal enough to be special, comfortable enough to not be intimidating. Food was beautifully cooked. Service was attentive and friendly.

    I chose this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary but both my wife and I were left disappointed. The service was good although the waitress had a habit of referring to my wife as young lady which as she is about to celebrate her 60th was a bit annoying after the first time. The menu was adventurous and the starter was good but we both felt the main courses did not live up to expectation. Some of the ingredients looked interesting but for us did not work together. The portions were good but neither my wife nor I finished the plates due to a mix of quantity and quality. The wine at £36/bottle was also nothing special. It was our first visit and would have been a good option for larger family events in the future but I'm sorry to say we won't be going back.

    This was a new find for us. Tucked away in Epsom the restaurant is in the hotel. The ambiance is warm , welcoming and quiet! The food is very tasty, selection is basically English. The service is discreet but attentive. The only drawback was that it was very quiet, more people would have added to the ambiance (althought it did suit us very well that evening). Perhaps it is a well kept secret?

    I work in the hotel and restaurant business and I love this restaurant! It is my second time going and they never disappoint. The food is of first class quality and my venison was cooked perfectly. The service is friendly, kind and laid back. We were very well looked after from beginning to end. I'm sure this place isn't for everyone, the restaurant only has 7 or 8 tables and the decor of the lobby reminds me of my grandmothers house but that just adds to the charm and "homeliness" of Chalk Lane. No doubt the best place in Surrey for a quiet romantic dinner!
