No 97 is a little neighbourhood restaurant located on leafy Maple Road in Surbiton.

City meets country. In all the good ways. An easy mix of innovation and international cuisine with openness and rootsy warmth. It’s a natural extension of who we are – part city slicker, part bumpkin, with a vision that is guided by the seasons, our travels and our experiences.

No 97 is us. A husband and wife team, surrounded by a top bunch of people. Our concept is simple – contemporary dining in a relaxed environment. It’s food inspired by fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, paired with an eclectic selection of wines, gin and innovative cocktails.

There is something superb happening in this kitchen. The cooking here is a full order of magnitude superior to many Michelin Starred restaurants I have been to. Also it is a very reasonable price for this quality.
There is a fabulous alchemy in their specialist cocktails, even their flavoured butters for the bread are eye-wateringly good. I won't recommend any particular dishes as the menu changes so often it would be pointless. All I will say, is that not one of the dishes was disappointing.
Go, and go soon before they realise that they can charge much more for food like theirs.

Very cute restaurant with a good lunch menu. My girlfriends and I went for Sunday lunch on the outdoor patio. So a good place for outside lunch.

My daughter and I had lunch on Friday and had the three course set menu. The choices were good, the food tasted delicious and the presentation was beautiful. We also had some cocktails which were expertly made. Overall good value for money and the waiting staff were excellent. Can’t wait to go back.

This place is seriously good. The food is excellent and the service is great.
We went on a Tuesday evening, and took advantage of the Experimental Tuesdays menu. The three choices in each course were not only varied in terms of ingredients, but also in terms of style of cooking. To get three courses for £25, on the outskirts of London is exceptionally good value. We also opted for the wine recommendations with each course, which were well thought out, and complemented each course beautifully.
Surbiton can now claim to have another quality dining experience, to rank alongside the French Table.
I would definitely recommend eating here.

We spent a great Sunday lunchtime at No.97. Lovely decour, spaceous and great service. The food and service was great, we were served with an amuse-bouche after ordering and the mains arrived quickly. The service was superb and the staff friendly and attentive.

Visited no97 for lunch to celebrate my mums birthday. I’ve been a number of times before and never had a bad experience. The food is always so delicious and beautifully presented. Service is also great- nothing is too much trouble. Really love this place and will look forward to booking again soon!

Felt cosy and still safely distanced etc.
