Description: We downright adore this cosy cottage restaurant in the Surrey village of Ripley, which was originally built in the 16th century. After surviving former lives as a dwelling and an antique shop selling Toby jugs, the Toby Cottage Restaurant was converted to a restaurant in 1979 and has been pleasing local gourmands ever since. The penultimate romantic restaurant, Toby Cottage is perfect for celebrations and family occasions and has original oak beams, a cocktail bar perfect for sneaky aperitifs, and a sensational wine list to compliment its English/Continental menu. Don't miss the smoked duck breast with mango chutney; the deep fried Brie with cranberry sauce; and the classic beef Wellington with mushrooms, pate and Burgundy sauce.

Wow ..!
This restaurant is the very best .
I have just moved in to the Ripley Village and always wanted a good restaurant within walking distance and I never believe I would be lucky enough to have the best !!
I had the beef Wellington on Toni’s recommendation and cannot wait to have it again .
Thank you Toby Cottage and I will see you again very soon.

This place is old-fashioned, not in a dated or tired way but in a way that is has a traditional style and attitude. The staff are exceptionally warm and welcoming, even it is for a first visit, and the main dining area (although a bit low in headroom!) isn't too stuffy but smart. We tried the festive menu and the food was great, the right size and tasty. The restaurant has a dessert trolley (long time since I've seen one of them!) which was also very welcomed! A very pleasant evening indeed.

This was our second visit to this restaurant in 2020 and it was very good . On arrival you are treated as a special customer even though we are not regulars. We had a nice table at the end of the restaurant.

The meal was delicious. We started with scallops which are always favourite of ours.

My Beef Wellington and my wife's venison main corses were superb and very filling in my case. This was rounded off nicely by a plentiful choice from the sweet trolley.

We certainly hope to return in 2021 for another special occasion.

Amazing place, amazing service and amazing food! If your undecided on going then go here! The guys that work here are amazing, they are accommodating/ friendly and on hand to help whatever you want! I’m not from ripley but these little gems are very hard to find in this day an age, yes it may not be modern decor but the flavours make up for it. Thank you very much to all of the team you made our Sunday afternoon much better!

We stopped by Toby Cottage based on their positive reviews on Tripadvisor, and were not disappointed. The menu on the website was up to date and features a wide variety of starters and mains. They also have an extensive list of daily specials. The food was excellent; the fillet steak was cooked perfectly to medium (as requested)!! The portion sizes were good, which let us enjoy three courses without feeling overeaten.
To top it off, the waiting staff are very friendly and attentive, which made the dining experience very enjoyable. Special mention must be given to Matthew, who did a great job serving us on his first week on the job.
