Gossip Bar & Lounge
Bar and Brasserie
Gossip Bar & Lounge is a new addition to the High Street, offering a touch of the West End to residents of Leatherhead. The place is a bar and brasserie, and so offers a great range of cocktails, beer and local delights such as Silent Pool gin. The drinks offering is best enjoyed while relaxing in the contemporary restaurant, seated in one of the booths. This is where we found ourselves recently, poring over the menu with a Mojito and Bellini.
Although tempted by the range of savoury crêpes, which includes cheesy spinach and pulled pork ﬁllings, we decided to plump for something a little heartier. We chose steaming hot beef Bourguignon, served with roast potatoes and garlicky mushrooms, as well as the locally produced Surrey farm steak, bacon and cheese burger, which was accompanied by a sizeable portion of spicy, loaded fries. For those with a sweet-tooth, the display of artisan ice cream and gelato is sure to tempt. I plumped for a scoop of the refreshing coconut ice cream, while my partner devoured pistachio and salted caramel.
A further string to this glamorous venue’s bow are the music events, which Gossip hosts at the weekend and every Thursday evening. With the team behind this establishment ready to go the extra mile to provide an exemplary package, this venue is a welcome addition to the Leatherhead food and drink scene.
