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.

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!

It was a birthday and anniversary celebration and we enjoyed everything from the friendly staff, our first cocktail and the delicious food.
Felt cosy and still safely distanced etc.
Needed a night off from the world and this was just lovely!

Lovely food, great ambience. So pleased we decided to eat at No. 97 as not disappointed. Can't wait for the next time. The only tiny negative is the speed the food was served between starter and main, just a bit too quick, and that was after I had said could we wait 20 mins. The waiter said probably near 15 but in reality it was less than 10 mins. So next time I'll make a bit more of a fuss when ordering but as I said, my wife & loved it.

Lovely food, every course was tasty (my partner and I had different courses and never once experienced food envy as everything was lovely).
Service was slightly slow, but we were looking for a long lunch so this did suit us

Have been to No 97 a few times and a fan. Greeted promptly and got to table very efficiently. All seems very COVID secure and despite wearing masks all the time the staff were upbeat and very good indeed. Food and drink excellent and value very good indeed. Highly recommend

This place is excellent. Stand out excellent. The food was of a quality you rarely find, the service was brilliant and the price (we went on a Tuesday and caught a deal) was an absolute steal.

In fact its so good I'm half tempted to write a bad review to put people off, so we can keep this gem to ourselves (but I'm not that evil). Dine here, you won't regret it

Another superb meal at No 97. I was worried that the atmosphere would feel very different with social distancing measures but the vibe was great and the food and drinks were fantastic.

Experimental Tuesday menu was delicious. I had the fish for both courses and it was cooked beautifully. Husband enjoyed his rabbit too.

Drinks slightly out of sync with courses which is annoying when they come as pairs. But otherwise very tasty and excellent value.

Great place and food... definitely value for money... the “ambience” was nice as well. Sat at the counter... would try the garden area next time
