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.

Very quiet (unusually so)
Extremely attentive and helpful waiter.
Would always recommend and definitely return.
We would and have recommended no 97 and as we really enjoy eating in different restaurants and it is now one of our definite go to restaurants in this area.
Great service and ambience. Portions were a bit small though. I know the fashionable way to eat these days is all about flavour and texture combinations (which were good) but I don’t want to spend £40 on dinner and leave still feeling hungry.
As usual, we had amazing food, service and cocktails. It was my 40th Birthday and it was lovely. Highly recommended!
Great service, great food and lovely atmosphere. I look forward to.coming back.
I am a regular here. Every time, it is superb. This time was no different. Both the hake starter and sea bass main course were superb. My wife enjoyed the pork very much. Highly recommended.
Staff were excellent from front of house to the waiting staff. Food was very good and lighting/ambience was excellent. We will definitely come back.
First class restaurant, great food, great atmosphere and great staff. If you go as a couple I recommend sitting at the bar rather than at a table.
Great food and service. Lost a star as my husband said that his beef was tough but I had the same dish and mine was lovely!
Always a great choice for lunch or dinner! Rather like their House Gin too...
A cosy relaxed restaurant serving delicious well presented food at amazing value.
I love their weekend brunch but will now come more regularly for lunch. Thank you so much.
Great food lovely atmosphere and music. Kim was lovely, friendly and helpful. Would recommend 97 to anybody that likes good food and good service.
I love number 97. The food is great, the service is really good and its a beautiful place to eat. We're so glad its in the neighbourhood.
A fabulous evening; excellent service and delicious food.
Excellent brunch menu, great cocktails, relaxed and good service. Excellent.
Great character and atmosphere to the place and being seated at the counter didn’t detract from the overall experience at all.
The food was fantastic and generously portioned too.
The only down side was the volume of a patron was slightly loud, and by the end of our visit we were all very aware of what he was ordering over the phone! (Not No. 97’s fault of course).
Fabulous gin bar and fabulous food. Now been three times and never disappointed.
Really enjoyed the meals. This was our second visit.
We have been to many top fine dining restaurants and 97 rates really high.
The only negative was the desert, the doughnut was tough and tasteless.
Really recommend the food and cocktails!
Food was great, the service was outstanding, best waiter we’ve ever had! Loved all of the extra samples that came from the kitchen. Will definitely be back!
A real gem in Surbiton. The food is excellent, absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The portion sizes were perfect. Our server, River, was very knowledgeable and attentive.
Great food, lovely staff, excellent cocktails
Service, food and ambiance is excellent
Great all round ; buzzy friendly service and high quality delicious food ( good portions) lovely cocktails
Informed friendly service
Fantastic standard of food at a good price. We haven't been for a while but decided to take some friends from out of town. It was as good as we remembered. Loved all my food - hake with Iberico ham, the beef and the apple doughnut dessert. This place deserves to do well. Great friendly service both upstairs and downstairs at the gin bar.
Lovely meal, friendly and welcoming staff and delicious food!
The waiter overheard we were celebrating my birthday and made me a surprise birthday dessert. Will definitely be back!
They give you complimentary fizzy/ still water.
Food is good. Just I didn’t like one of waitresses who moved our table while we are eating!
Excellent food and drinks in a relaxed restaurant with friendly and helpful service.
Fantastic lunch and don't know why its taken me so long to visit - I live locally. All five of us loved everything - the place, the service, the food. Quality, Quality, Quality! Its definitely a place we'll be visiting again. The breads, truffle butter and complimentary sparkling water were nice touches to a great lunch - only wish we'd had time to stay longer!
We arrived at 7.00pm for our table and were told the table was booked for a 2nd sitting at 9.00pm, which shouldn’t have been a problem
The waiter took 40 mins to take our order so getting a starter after 8.00pm, meant as our dessert arrive the receptionist came over plucked the bill down and said the next guests are here.
We rushed out dessert and left
So a nice meal for 4 rather spoilt and e left without coffees or finishing the wine.
It’s a lovely evening out to relax With friends over lovely food and lovely drink. My only real disappointment is the rushed feeling because of back to back bookings, service is Relaxed as it should be but then you’re rushed to free up your table. We were offered another table but it still felt too rushed.
Perfect! Food was amazing and the service was great, the lady serving created such a fun atmosphere- she was fab. We’ll definitely be back!!
We had our anniversary dinner there last year and this. It is an outstanding restaurant with a difference that makes it special. The food including the in between course nibbles is brilliant. Our waitress was so friendly and yet not intrusive. The veggie option(s) were delicious.
Fantastic anniversary meal at No 97. Staff were very friendly and accommodated my food intolerances excellently. Caring staff looked after table with a deaf couple next to us. Waitress had learnt a bit of sign language to help communicate with them. Thank you
Good food, although meat/fish could have been a little warmer! Problem with supplier meant some wines/beer were not available. Minor issues. Overall very good.
Always a fun place to dine at - great atmosphere and lovely food
Excellent food and excellent service.
W arrived early and went to the bar downstairs for a drink and were collected very promptly when our table was ready.Staff are very helpful and friendly and the food of excellent quality.
We went to No97 on Saturday eve and had such a lovely time. The waiting staff were attentive and very friendly. We got great recommendations for the gin as the menu is extensive. The food was lovely and I would definitely go back.
First time out after our child was born so first time a babysitter so needed to know things would go smoothly. Not disappointed as we had a wonderful meal with great service and fab value
Always great atmosphere, fantastic food, everything as you would want it.
