What do you get when you combine an historic building, exquisite food and first-rate service? The answer is The Squirrel Inn, a bespoke, independent venue that successfully fuses fine dining and traditional dishes. Ideally located off the A3 just six miles from Guildford, this recently refurbished gem has been gaining a well-earned reputation for excellence.
Attention to detail is key at The Squirrel and nothing is left to chance, with all produce sourced locally and everything homemade, from the bread to the ice cream. The passionate and talented kitchen team, headed by Tim Bridle, works to create an impressive menu that changes weekly. Packed with exciting and innovative dishes, the menu caters for the casual diner as well as for more formal occasions. Choose to start with the likes of Loch Duart beetroot-cured salmon gravadlax with homemade caraway soda bread, and follow it with rosemary- and anchovy-crusted lamb rump with Jannson’s potato and rosemary jus. The burgers are legendary and mustn’t be missed. Alongside the à la carte menu, there is an equally interesting lunch menu as well as a barbecue menu for the summer months, when you can dine al fresco in the, pretty gardens with a tipple from the extensive drinks list.
