Cobham is an exclusive Surrey village which sits some 17 miles south west of London.
It is far from a new town, appearing in the Domesday Book under its bygone name of Covenham (which probably means a settlement or curve in the river) and came under the control of ancient Chertsey Abbey. History buffs will notice vestiges of the past including the Norman tower on 12th century St Andrew’s church. Cobham may be ancient but it has changed a lot with the times. Nowadays you are as likely to be spotting Porches as you are historic porches, alongside other supercars such as Bentleys and Maseratis, because the area is much favoured by the rich and famous, including football players from Chelsea Football Club which has a training ground at Cobham. Indeed, some dub Cobham the ‘Beverley Hills of Britain’ and, in the past five years, Cobham has four times been named the best place to live in the country. So when it comes to eating out, you can be sure this area has its fair share of smart restaurants, cosy brasseries , coffee shops – and cocktails bars!
