Eating Out

Sundays 12-5pm: Sunday Carvery at The Holiday Inn, Surbiton. Includes bottomless cocktails for the grown-ups and a candy cart for the kids. They even have a retro vintage Carvery trolley for 1962 that they wheel to your table and carve in front of you. I may well have to try this… £27 per head including 3 courses and cocktails, advance booking is highly recommended.  Well done Holiday Inn for a very eye-catching offering.
