Surrey's Best Riverside Restaurants

With both the River Mole and the River Wey, both tributaries of the River Thames passing through the county of Surrey, you can expect there’ll be plenty of places you can go to make the most of the warm weather as you dine and admire the picturesque riverside views.  

Here’s a list of some stunning riverside eateries you can find in Surrey, with great views and fantastic food. 

The Stag on the River

Located in the charming village of Lower Eashing, this historic 18th-century pub is perched on the banks of the Wey. With a gorgeous pub garden and a patio overlooking the river, visitors can bask in the glorious views both day and night. Offering a varied selection of fresh, locally sourced, seasonal food and drink, the Stag on the River is a true gem. 

The Stag on the River is also surrounded by beautiful gardens and parks including Winkworth Arboretum, Loseley Park, and Thursley National Nature Reserve, so you could also enjoy a peaceful stroll after lunch or work up an appetite for dinner. 

You can even enjoy a weekend away as the pub has beautifully furnished bedrooms for anyone wishing to stay. 

The Weyside

Berkeley Inspiration - Surrey's Best Riverside Restaurants - The Weyside

The Weyside is a beautiful waterside retreat perched right on the river, not far from Guildford Castle. It’s also just a stone’s throw away from the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, making it a popular place for pre-theatre dinner or drinks. 

The spacious beer garden offers stunning views of the water, and the heated huts are ideal for those days when there’s a bit of a chill, so you can still enjoy the outdoors comfortably. It’s truly a wonderful place to relax and refuel after you’ve spent a fruitful day shopping and enjoying the town.

The Weyside is a dog and family-friendly pub, with a dedicated River Kitchen menu that offers items such as burgers and salads, as well as seasonal British dishes including hearty Sunday roasts. 

The Bingham Riverhouse

Located west along the river in historic Richmond, this delightful boutique hotel offers the perfect riverside dining experience in its cosy and elegant restaurant. 

At Bingham Riverhouse you’ll find modern British cuisine based on local produce, offering something inventive and different each time you visit. Enjoy views of the Thames through the elegant Georgian windows, or sit out on the terrace with a cocktail on fine evenings to really experience that riverside vibe.
