Described as ‘Surrey Hill’s best kept dining secret’ I was excited last weekend to be visiting Haywards at Hurtwood for dinner with a few friends.
Nestled in the charming village of Ewhurst on the Sussex/Surrey border, Haywards restaurant is situated on the beautiful grounds of Hurtwood Park Polo Club, which as an equestrian lover, I was particularly excited about!
With everything on the menu sounding delicious, it was hard to pick just one dish. I ended up opting for the ‘Pork Saltimbocca’ – and I was not disappointed. Tender pork medallions topped with sage, Parma ham and chorizo served on a haricot bean cassoulet, not to mention a generous portion of creamy dauphinoise potatoes and fresh vegetables, it was a culinary delight – my mouth is watering just thinking about it!
There was something to suit every taste, with other dishes including ‘Venison Bourguignon’, ‘Magret Duck Breast’ and ‘Fillet of Halibut’ as well as starters, light bites, vegetarian and children’s options and of course (and most importantly) desserts!
Not only was the food fantastic, but the service was superb and the lovely staff made our dining experience at Haywards thoroughly enjoyable.
If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy delicious gourmet food combined with stunning surroundings, I would recommend a visit to Haywards.
I’m already looking forward to returning in the summer to sample more of the menu and to watch the polo with a glass of Pimms (or two)!
