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.

Just top notch.
I love No 97 and go regularly, for brunch, lunch and occasionally just to their cosy gin bar. Everything is usually absolutely perfect - food, service and ambiance. On this occasion the sun was shining so they were very busy in the conservatory area and outside. As a result I think we were slightly forgotten about. Service was unusually slow but I think it was a one off - the food was delicious and staff friendly.
Food was amazing and a very large selection of drinks (especially the gin menu!) staff were very friendly and helpful and the music was just loud enough in the background that you hear each other talk without worrying about hearing everyone else -definitely recommend :)
Made very welcome, friendly and helpful service, great gin cocktails, good food.
Perfect beef rare tender tasty. Love this place and been many times. It is difficult to get a table at times so early booking essential. High noise levels so difficult to hear even at a table for 4. Will still book as the food is so good. Great gin list to sample many types.
Fab night. Everything was great except it's quite squashed in terms of a lot of tables in a small space. Would definitely recommend it.
Second visit in less than two weeks and as always, the food and service were great. Really friendly and welcoming.
Super fine dining food in a relaxed atmosphere. Just enough food to allow you to have 3 courses comfortably.
Only negative is that they put the service charge on the bill. I don’t agree with that.
Great value lunchtime menu married with great food and brilliant service
Not the usual impeccable service and food. Don’t get me wrong, my wife and I love this place and every visit until our last has been 5 star without a shadow of a doubt.
However last Saturday everything was a bit hectic, our main course, although the same main course as we had eaten 2 weeks previously just wasn’t as good. The beef wasn’t as well cooked or seasoned. The dish looked and tasted very different. This is unusual as usually the food is impeccable.
Drinks took at least 25 mins each time we ordered, once being forgotten. The lovely waitress said they were on her as a result of the delay but then when the bill came the drinks were on there, queue an awkward conversation! They were removed though so fair play.
Per opening sentence we love No 97, we will definitely be back but last visit just wasn’t as good.
Superb food just right for special occasion only slight moan the extraprice for cheese a bit much if part of 3 courser. Tables a bit close but victim of own success
Amazing food, great service, lovely brunch
Fabulous gem! Just very cramped and very noisy! Food sophisticated and service impeccable
Food was wonderful. Service was fantastic and very friendly
Delicious food, beautifully presented enjoyed in relaxed but chic and stylish surrounds. Waiting staff were attentive and helpful and took particularly special care of me (a heavily pregnant lady). The choc praline tart was a highlight. Will definitely be back soon.
I visited the restaurant on a Saturday evening with my husband. The atmosphere was really good, a nice vibe without being overwhelming. We do eat out a lot in and around London and I have to say that the staff was great and contributed in making our dinner really enjoyable. They had fun while being professional and taking care of the tables. The food was beautifully presented in a variety of dishes and was really tasty. Loved the Negroni selection. Thanks to everyone at the 97.
This was my second visit within the last month to No 97. On both occasions my partner and I went for brunch, which has been absolutely outstanding. My partner opted for the eggs benedict and I went for the chorizo poach eggs on muffin. This place is definitely our favourite. Will plan to go back shortly. We were served by Kim on both occasions who is lovely
I made a last minute booking for dinner on a sunny Friday evening so had to sit at the counter but as with previous visits the service and food was great and the red wine we were recommended was superb value. Love this place!
This great restaurant gets better and better. We couldn’t fault it, from comfort of the seating, great service and interesting and well priced food plus a really interesting drinks menu. Small touches like chilled still or sparkling water as soon as you are seated and great quality napkins make it a first choice for eating close to home.
We went to No. 97 for a midweek lunch and it was fantastic. The food was incredible - inventive and delicious, and of a much higher standard than we expected for the price. The decor is beautiful and the service great. I would highly recommend this place and can't way to go back!
Always attentive, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Food and drink fantastic!
Great good. Great service. Great atmosphere. Will definitely be back.
Excellent food at unbelievable value considering the quality. Huge range of gin based cocktails and the staff have always been brilliant whenever we've been. One of our favourite restaurants in SW London
Fantastic food and great staff. We felt very looked after. Would definitely recommend.
A bright, modern, attractive location with a matching atmosphere. Attentive but not pushy waiting staff are part of a young and very visible, friendly team. An excellent range of dishes but not so large that they lose freshness and individuality, accompanied by a well balanced wine list.
Great food and friendly service as always. A gem of a place in the heart of Surbiton.
Really lovely atmosphere and staff really nice and helpful
Beautiful food and drinks
Will definitely be going again soon
My favourite place to eat in Surbiton. Food always top class. Delicious!
I love this place, the food is really good, delicious! If you are a gin lover this is the perfect place for you! The variety of gin is impressive and the cocktails are out of this world. The service is excellent, friendly staff always happy to help and give you recommendations.
First time having brunch here after visiting a few times for dinner. The vibe is slightly different to dinner, with fun but not distracting music and great but less fancy food. Best brunch I’ve had in a while!
Really delicious food and an interesting menu. Staff couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. Loved it - we’ll be back!
Lovely food and great service. Unfortunately there were only two other customers which meant that it was a bit lacking in atmosphere
Amazing food. My husband had the hake and said it was the best he'd ever tasted. Very attentive staff and would recommend to anyone.
Really exciting and original dishes.
Always a pleasure
We had a very good dinner. All the dishes were well cooked and very tasty. One small comment, the chocolate dessert was maybe a bit too dense.
We will go back again for sure.
Lovely food, very friendly service, relaxed atmosphere everything you’d expect from an independent restaurant. So refreshing, Surbitons best place to eat!
Absolutely brilliant experience, one of the best meals we have had. Great atmosphere and service was so personal. Fantastic job everyone. Thanks
Invariably excellent and a real pleasure to dine here
Smart and professional service, attentive without being intrusive. Nice stylish restaurant and most importantly lovely food - a reasonably priced lunch.
I have been to no 97 a lot since it opened and have always found the food excellent and tasty, and the staff very helpful and information about the menu. The range of gin and gin cocktails is extensive. The staff were lovely when I had my birthday there earlier in the year and really made the evening feel special. I think its a great restaurant !
