Meet the businesses putting Dorking on the map in Surrey and Nationally

29 MARCH 2023: Dorking is home to some of the most independently spirited and eclectic people and independent businesses. It is widely acknowledged to be a food enthusiast’s dream, renowned for its culinary expertise and a host of cuisines to satisfy a variety of tastes. Called the ‘commuter town that gives London a run for its money’, Dorking has something for everyone, as well as an eclectic mix of beloved shops and services to entice locals and visitors to keep coming back for more. 

Here’s a rundown of Dorking’s award-winning offerings and experiences: 

From renowned chefs to gin distillers, female-led businesses championing sustainability, microbrewers to fashion-forward retailers, hair artists to luxury spas, baristas to artisan gift curators – across nearly every sector, Dorking independents are defying the odds, displaying extraordinary resilience and creativity, and are winning multiple local, national and international accolades. 

The Dorking BID is sponsoring a Community Spirit Award for the DorKing Coronation Celebration on 8th May and is being judged by three Surrey-based experts who embody and champion the values central to these awards. The BID is recognising three inspiring individuals in three categories: Sustainability Champion, Volunteer of the Year, and Best High Street Business.
