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.

Table booked, confirmation email came through. Drove 40 mins to get to the restaurant to find it closed. Could not get in anywhere else as so last minute so had to drive all the way home.
A great quality, privately owned restaurant with talented chefs who love their work and are constantly trying new things. Always use fresh quality produce.
Price is reasonable, staff really friendly best place to go for a special meal, definitely food you would not be able to conjure up yourself.
GORGEOUS! I absolutely love no.97 and after such a long time it was such a treat. Delicious food, brilliant service and lovely ambience. So gutted you are having to close when you're managing Covid so brilliantly. I hope you can open really soon.
Excellent dinner, as always, and just before Tier 3 lockdown. Great menu and delightful, friendly staff.
Brilliant food, cocktails and service.
We have been a few times and it’s always consistently very very good.
Very friendly staff and amazing food. Thank you! So sorry you have to close again.
Amazing food, drinks and top class staff. Recommend a visit!
Went with my friend for her birthday and it was a lovely lunch and she thoroughly enjoyed the experience
Another lovely dinner at no97 - great service and sensational deserts
The food over promises and under delivers. The Service is very rough: they don’t seem to have been properly trained.
Outstanding. You look at the menu and kind of think ‘I’m not sure about any of this’ then try and it blows your mind. Brilliant staff too. Highly recommended
An excellent meal. Friendly and attentive service and delicious food. Loved the extras like a pre-starter and petit fours. Outstanding value for food of this quality.
Amazing food, great wine pairings. I would have eaten everything on the menu, absolutely delicious and lovely attentive staff
Great welcome, plenty of space, nice and clean. Staff very friendly and attentive. Food was excellent as were the drinks. Always a treat to go here.
Food and service were absolutely fab - will definitely be going again!
We had our last meal here before lockdown & then had our first meal post lockdown - great restaurant - food always amazing !
Everything was even better than last time (we felt desserts were brought to a while different level!), this restaurant is a little gem and with the set menu it's become a really good value for money alternative. Of course it's not cheap but it's a very doable treat!.
Fabulous food and service, great “outdoor” space
Extremely good. We celebrated my husbands birthday and the whole experience was fantastic.
Fantastic wedding anniversary lunch on the day before lockdown - food quality is amazing 😋
Delicious meal, such good value for money and great service. We had the tasting Tuesday menu and enjoyed all of it.
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.
Excellent meal, great value. Shame we have to wait another month for our next visit
You will enjoy your meal out here without a doubt, never been disappointed.
Excellent food in a lovely atmosphere with great service. Can’t recommend highly enough
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.
What a lovely place. Stylish and welcoming. Great food and the best staff. A bit of a gem.
Always a pleasure!
Food is always brilliant, service great and the drinks selection is always tempting!
Most enjoyed lunch in ages. Excellent in every way Worth our one hour journey to get to to!
We went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. The food was delicious, I love the venue it’s so cute and the team there are lovely. Highly recommend
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.
Excellent food as always. Great value for money, on par if not better than top restaurants in the city.
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.
Great food with interesting tastes. Good informative friendly service. Well worth a visit; you will not be disappointed
Love this place. Great atmosphere, service and amazing food, especially £25 for 3 courses on Tuesday night!
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.
good food and excellent service. A charming place to eat and relax.
Such delicious food and fantastic service! Lucky to have this on my doorstep
Number 97 always perfect! It was our first time for a Sunday roast and it was divine, impeccable service and food :)
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!
