REOPENING - COVID-19 UPDATE:
After several months of closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are pleased to announce that we shall be resuming with our Sunday Carvery as of 2nd August 2020. With the threat of the virus still present, we have had to make some changes to the way in which we run our carvery, which will help to ensure both the safety of our guests and our staff. This will include some changes to our usual service, available timings, and a restriction on numbers. Please see below, the changes you should be aware of with regards to our Sunday Carvery during the pandemic, as well as the necessary measures taken generally to ensure that Glenmore House remains a safe environment for all. Due to the constantly changing nature of this guidance, we will be continuously reviewing our procedures and restaurant capacity and hope that, in due course, some of these measures may be eased in line with any updated hospitality guidelines.
Changes to the Carvery:
Bookings will only be permitted for parties of up to 6 people or under, and consisting of a maximum of 2 households
The total number of bookings taken will be reduced to ensure we are able to set tables at a safe social distance. This will mean a significantly reduced availability at our Carvery for the foreseeable future
Allocated time slots will be provided for you to choose from, which will include a set arrival time for a drink in the bar (if requested), and a set dining time. This will enable us to control the amount of guests present in one space at any one time
You will be encouraged to either pre-order your drinks for arrival, order drinks from your bar or dining table using our Table Service drinks App, or order with a member of serving staff who will be circulating the bar and dining room areas, rather than order at the bar itself.
If visiting the bar prior to dining, you will be allocated to a specific bar table which will help us to organise any pre-ordered arrival drinks, and make table service for drinks possible
Social distancing restrictions have a huge impact on the size of the chef brigade permitted in the kitchen at any one time. We want you to have the best culinary experience we can possibly provide for you, and for this reason we have decided to continue serving our usual exceptional red tractor carvery meats, but with your selection from a set menu served to the table instead of from a carvery station. Similarly, plated desserts will be served, with the starter course served as usual. All roast meats will still be freshly carved for your main course, although this will, for the time being, be prepared in the kitchen rather than the dining room.
Bills will be printed and paid for at the dining table, rather than at the bar
Card payments will be the preferred method of payment. We have now updated our terminals to accept contactless payments.
New Safety Measures:
We would like to assure you that all government guidelines and best practices are being implemented and necessary risk assessments have been certified to validate our procedures. Full training for every member of staff has been undertaken prior to reopening and the following have been implemented:
Hand sanitisers have been made available in all public areas of the building and outside of dining rooms
Guests and staff will be required to have their temperature checked before entering the building. Anyone exhibiting signs of Covid-19 will not be allowed onto the premises.
Accelerated cleaning measures are being carried out, including the use of a fogging machine which expels a sanitising mist on all fixtures and furnishings
The Carvery at Glenmore House
WITHOUT a doubt one of Surbiton's best kept secrets is the Glenmore House Sunday Carvery. Held on the first Sunday of every month, the Carvery has built up an enviable reputation with a regular following. With up to 176 places available monthly it is not unusual for the Carvery to be fully sold out one month in advance - so book quickly!
After enjoying a complimentary amuse bouche (pre-starter) and then feasting on the choice of five starters (usually two hot and three cold are available), you can then tuck into our freshly roasted meat straight from the carvery which always includes Roast Sirloin of Scottish or English Beef, and then perhaps Roast Welsh or English Lamb, Roast Pork with popcorn crackling, or maybe a Coulibiac of Scottish Salmon or Red Mullet over a Niçoise salad, or even Suffolk Turkey or Roast Chicken, together with a panache of market fresh vegetables, and a cauliflower and broccoli gratin, with chateau potatoes, as well as possibly the largest Yorkshire puddings you will have seen… all the ingredients for the perfect carvery!
After enjoying our main courses, if you still have room, the dessert table literally groans with a choice of at least eight different mouthwatering desserts, or a large selection of English and Continental Cheese, with a coffee and Glenmore House chocolate to finish.
Carvery price is £22 for adults and £11 for children (a 10% service charge is added to parties of 7 or more).
A warm, friendly and efficient service is our forte, coupled with the abilities of a passionate brigade of Chefs producing amazing food using fresh, and where possible, locally sourced ingredients combine to make this a carvery unrivalled locally at such a remarkable price.
Places must be booked in advance, with tables from 2 to 20 available.
Bookings can be made on 0208 399 1415 (£5 deposit is taken per adult at time of booking).
Carvery price is £22 for adults and £11 for children under 12 (a £2 per person service charge is added to parties of 7 or more).
Private room bookings for the Carvery in either our Tudor Rooms or Crescent Room are available for a price of £26 per adult and £14 per child under 12 (inclusive of service charge).
Tudor Rooms: Min 50-Max 70
