din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to the pub­lic, with dishes served and cooked by pris­on­ers par­tic­i­pat­ing in The Clink Restau­rants’ train­ing scheme. The aim of the es­tab­lish­ment is to ed­u­cate and re­duce re­of­fend­ing lev­els. Open for break­fast, lunch and af­ter­noon tea (which is served on the first Thurs­day of each month), the food is as good as you’ll find in any restau­rant on the High Street. With seven hand pumps for real ale, it’s a must visit if you’re par­tial to a pint – and an ex­cel­lent spot for an end of year catch-up with beer lov­ing friends. While the laven­der fields lie dor­mant again un­til their next ca­coph­ony of pur­ple in the sum­mer, there’s no leav­ing out the spec­tac­u­lar May­field Laven­der from a list of things to do in the area. Found be­tween Sut­ton and Banstead, you’ll have to add the farm to your di­ary dates for 2019 but this month you can visit their Christ­mas Shop, found a few min­utes fur­ther down the road to­wards Ep­som. You haven’t re­ally done sum­mer in Sur­rey cor­rectly un­less you’ve taken a selfie there!
