Before my 101 in 1001 challenges began, I hadn’t visited
Jeremy’s Restaurant in Borde Hill, now I have the pleasure to say I have been
twice and after my most recent visit, it is now officially my favourite local
The first time I visited was December 2017 to celebrate my
brother in law’s (special) birthday. There were 10 of us in the party and we
were a little worried that it would be too ‘Christmassy’ in December but we
needn’t have worried. Although there were Christmas decorations up, they were
subtle, tasteful and not garish at all making the restaurant very pretty.
Dal Nanno, Crawley Down | Restaurant Review
Tucked away on a route through the village of Crawley Down is a little Italian restaurant called Dal Nanno (By Grandfather). Opened in 2013, I have been hearing for ages how good it is so to celebrate our daughter finishing her A-Levels we thought we would give it a go.
The restaurant is cosy, and extremely popular so the tables are cheek by jowl and instead of being atmospheric it is fairly noisy. However saying that, it is tastefully decorated and oozes Italian charm.
As I go to the theatre regularly I am usually juggling which train to catch and I grab a quick sandwich to eat on the train or if I am late, I eat on the way home. On the rare occasion I I do eat in London it is usually fast food on the hoof.
So when Official Theatre and Kettners asked me to sample a pre-theatre dining experience I was a little bemused not to mention delighted. A quick look at their menu on the Kettner’s website and I was sold – it looked DE-LI-CIOUS!
I have been asked to help organise many Charity events in my time but I must say the one last night at Roochi in Forest Row was probably one of the easiest yet.
