Residential and family-focused, Reigate is a market town with a great selection of boutiques and bistros. Though it’s on the capital’s outskirts, Reigate is within easy reach of central London, with regular trains to London Bridge and London Victoria. Restaurants in Reigate cover a tempting selection of British and European cuisines, and there are plenty of chances to dine in style.
Though the area has a number of reliable chain venues, there are also several independent Reigate restaurants. One of the most interesting is La Barbe, a quirky French destination with a truly authentic and gourmet menu. On the menu, expect Gallic delicacies like snails with garlic butter, while the wine list covers an ample selection of French stalwarts, without being overly expensive.
Here’s one you might have seen earlier. The team at TV’s Ready Steady Cook have chosen The Dining Room for their show’s location over 300 times since 1992. Menus are gourmet modern British, with a decent selection of vegetarian dishes. There are several fixed-price and set menu options, so while it’s not a “cheap” eatery, it’s possible to stay budget conscious when eating at The Dining Room in Reigate.
