We are a café in the heart of picturesque Shere at the foot of The Surrey Hills. Our concept is simple… we are passionate about good quality, delicious food.  We believe it should be freshly prepared with love.  We use locally sourced produce wherever possible and we provide great service with a smile.

Welcome to The Dabbling Duck. 


A home from home.  The Duck is a great place to meet up for breakfast, morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea.  The welcome is warm and the food is a treat.

Or if you want to just take half an hour to yourself,  you’ll hopefully find a seat by the window where you can sip tea and watch the world go by.

Take away.   We know that visitors to Shere like to sit by the river and watch the dabbling ducks so just for you, we have put together a lovely take away menu.

Local businesses can also take advantage of our take away menu.  Just click here to view the menu or we are happy to email you.  If you wish to pre-order then please call  us on 01483 205791.
