Review on The Grantley Arms
The Grantley Arms occupies a Grade II listed building that can trace its history back to the 16th century, set in the the picturesque village of Wonersh in Surrey it's just a few miles from the historic town Guildford. New owners have done a superb job here, transforming the original building with a striking contemporary décor whilst retaining many of its fine features. It still serves the local community as place to pop in for a drink, where you can relax on comfy sofas by the wood burning stove whilst reading the papers, or enjoy a light snack or bar meal. More formal dining takes place in the light and airy restaurant showcasing an elegant décor, smart cream chairs are set against polished wood tables, and classy medieval style chandeliers illuminate the room.
Seasonal menus source locally where possible and stay true to the spirit of the place with dishes in the shape of South Down carpaccio with hazelnuts, truffles, beetroot leaves and coal oil or smoked haddock soup 'Cullen Skin' with onion, potato and caviar. When it comes to main courses, meat eaters might go for the hay smoked saddleback port fillet with black garlic, braised cheek and artichoke, or for fish fans there's pan fried turbot with monk's beard, lemon and pink fir potato. Make sure you leave room for one of their delicious desserts such as carrot cake with walnut praline, crème fraiche sorbet and coconut or mascarpone mousse with espresso, lady fingers and cocoa.
The Grantley Arms is central to the vibrancy of the village and as such provides a welcome and relaxing ambience to both locals and tourists alike.
