Proud of its historic location, the Brooklands Hotel’s award-winning restaurant is named after the year that Brooklands racetrack was established. With two AA rosettes to its name, 1907 Restaurant, Bar & Grill is a firm favourite for contemporary dining in and around Weybridge.
As you step into the elegant restaurant and cocktail bar, you’ll first notice the relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere and the stunning decor, which is inspired by the 1920s and 1930s. The menu, which you might peruse with a cocktail in hand, has been carefully designed by executive chef Adam McLaren to showcase the season’s finest produce. Serving beautifully presented food that blends honest simplicity and classic flavours with modern cooking techniques is 1907’s raison d’être. The friendly team ensures that your dining experience is as comfortable and enjoyable as the food is delicious. The restaurant also boasts a fine selection of wine to accompany your meal, and a team of trained wine experts is on-hand to offer advice and help you decide.
Tantalising starters such as pan-seared scallops with pistachio and truffle butter and blueberry and pancetta salsa, and West Country steak tartare with crispy capers, dressed watercress and cave-aged Cheddar are perfectly balanced and delightfully creative. Equally sumptuous are the crispy duck udon ramen and market fish chowder from an innovative selection of dishes that can be sampled as starters or main courses. Known for its modern take on British classics, 1907 offers an unrivalled choice of gourmet burgers, perfectly grilled steaks, and rich main dishes such as charred lamb rack enhanced by pea hummus, baby kale, scallop fritter and smoked potatoes.
Unsurprisingly, the puddings here are heavenly, providing the perfect final flourish to a captivating culinary experience. Tonka bean cheesecake with salted liquorice syrup, peppermint purée and mint ice cream, and salted caramel crème brûlée accompanied by a Bourbon biscuit are just a couple of the sweet treats on offer. Regardless of the occasion or time of day, you’re guaranteed a splendid and memorable visit to 1907 Restaurant, Bar & Grill.
