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.

Food looks great but does not quite live up the appearance! could have been perhaps one more choice on the menu. We are seated in a quiet area which was nice but a little warm on this very hot day.

This was our 5th time dinning at No97 and it did not disappoint. Each course carefully thought out, prepared and presented. The service perfectly friendly and easy going. A perfect way to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and the first time dinning out since Lockdown. We will be back!

Very nice meal for a birthday, menu was limited but delicious, catering for fish, meat or veggie at each course with amuse bouche and an extra tiny dessert as well. The only disappointment was that when we asked for the bill our waiter didn’t bring it personally so it all had a bit of a conveyor belt feel to it. The spacing of diners was excellent so we didn’t feel uncomfortable at all. Overall it beat expectations as our first meal out since lockdown ended.

The set lunch menu had variety, dishes were presented beautifully and tasted delish. All at a good price.
Looking forward to visiting again and also trying the sister restaurants.

As always a brilliant experience. From the moment we entered we felt at home. They have managed to navigate all the additional safety precautions required to ensure a happy safe environment to enjoy their excellent faultless food. The wine was perfect and the level of detail and attention that went into all the dishes puts them up there with the well known high end dining establishments.
So happy they are back !

As regular diners at No.97 and sister restaurants I was very happy to return post lockdown and enjoy the food and atmosphere.

The wine pairings with each course were excellent and we both very much enjoyed our meal. The deserts were a little on the turn to melting but otherwise it was so nice to be able to dine with you once again.
