A handy local landmark is a wine warehouse, Santat Wines (0483 450494), in Guildford - if you know nothing about wine, they advise you what case to buy. If you want to go over the top there's Morels in Haslemere. It's a French restaurant and fairly expensive. The food looks as if you're eating a painting by Picasso. You tend to have to dress for it as well. I also like to sit in my garden which is next to the local cricket ground and watch a game while drinking wine and champagne. In the evening, you can see all these hot air balloons floating past. I've never discovered where they come from. A day out in London is a bit too much of a hassle, but I do miss the quality music concerts, particularly chamber music.
