The Clock House
The Clock House is situated in the heart of Ripley, one of Surrey’s prettiest villages. In its previous life as Drake’s, it has been open since 2004 and had won many accolades over the years. Since January 2017 the name has been changed to The Clock House.
Serina Drake runs the restaurant, with the same team in place as before - front and back of house - continuing to maintain the standards expected and enjoyed by its loyal customer base.
Head Chef Fred Clapperton, formerly sous chef for quite a few years at Drake’s, was promoted in Summer 2016 and has risen well to the challenge of taking the restaurant from strength to strength and gaining new accolades. He has already seen the reinstatement of the three AA Rosettes which Drake’s had previously held. Fred has a passion for creativity and design alongside embracing the seasons and their bounty, using locally sourced produce where possible but putting provenance first and treating ingredients with respect and care.
