'Delicious, fresh and fun' is a very fitting way to describe The Dorking Deli. For this contemporary and welcoming deli/café combo - sitting in the heart of the bustling down of Dorking - offers the best of British and international foods and is both a shop and a café. It also hosts extremely enjoyable evening events.
Olives, charcuterie, chocolate ... wines, spirits and local beers ... there's too much to mention here but rest assured the choice is incredibly tempting and everything is hand-picked (and sampled!) by deli owner Louise Holme. She confesses to favouritsm, however, when it comes to cheese - Louise is is so taken with British cheeses that she stocks an amazing range. The selection changes on a weekly basis and most cheeses can be sourced for the next day (both British and continental) so if there's something in particular you're after, do say.
Dine at The Dorking Deli
At the Deli, the day starts with breakfast, so pop in for a bowl of creamy porridge (choose between apple & cinnamon, date & apricot or dark chocolate & ginger), a fresh bacon sandwich or perhaps the Dorking Deli Mediterranean Breakfast Platter - a selection of meat and cheese served with olives, tomatoes and traditionally made bread. Then of course there's toasted bloomer with Artisan Kitchen marmalade, jam or Marmite.
For lunch, choose from a selection of satisfying soups, pastries and baguettes and, of course, the most luscious homemade cakes.
Look out for Deli By Night evenings as well as special events such as ladies only cocktail evenings with Louise and wine tastings.
