The Refectory


0.5 miles
Portsmouth Road, Milford, Godalming, GU8 5HJ

The Refectory is set in a charming converted ancient barn and boasts exposed beams, high ceilings, leaded lights, open fires and chunky wooden tables arranged in a rabbit warren of alcoves. Old stoneware is used as ornamentation and on each of the well-spaced tables is a small stone jar containing fresh daisies. Outside, you’ll find a lovely terrace and garden for al fresco dining on warm evenings. Yet The Refectory is certainly not just a pretty face; the food served here is something special too. 

My starter of beetroot-cured salmon with orange and beetroot salad and horseradish cream was light and beautifully presented. For my main course, I plumped for fish pie filled with salmon, smoked haddock and prawns. My companion’s Malaysian curry comprising sweet potato, red pepper, aubergine and spinach in a spicy sauce came served with fluffy coconut rice, pak choi and coriander – a delicious veggie feast. Although almost too full to manage a dessert, we just had to try the much-recommended sticky toffee pudding, and, after just one bite, could understand why it’s a local favourite – it was easily one of the best we have tasted. 

If you simply wish to enjoy the ambience while sipping a beer, The Refectory has a large range of cask ales as well as a carefully chosen wine list. With second-to-none service, a unique setting and a focus on local, seasonal ingredients, The Refectory is not to be missed.
