San Domenico restaurant - A3 Surrey



Does anyone actually remember this place being open? Apparently Robert Elms mentioned it on his radio show a few years ago and was admonished by the authorities. I've heard rumours in the past that it is used as a safe house. Anyone heard similar?

I used to go past it every day and I recon it would be VERY unsafe house as its been left to the elements for some time. No idea why, looks a great location.

I listen to Robert Elms everyday and there have been some great spying/mafia stories and helicopters landing in the grounds with strange looking men in dark glasses and suits going into the restaurant.

The last i remember someone phoned up about 2 months ago and the present situation was either someone else had bought it or it was waiting to be demolished.

But did anyone ever go there about 20 years ago?

I've often gone past there in the dead of night on the way back from away games to see one solitary light bulb lit on the upper floor and occasionally someone moving around.

The power is on, so it's used for something. Can't believe it is a safe house though. The choppers are more likely for the Hilton Hotel whose grounds it backs onto.

Just outside Cobham, not far from the M25 exit on the northbound side.

I've driven past that place to my dads house and always thought it is a bit of a weird place to be honest. I imagine there being a shoot out between some mexicans wearing carpets in the car park which just ended with it being derelict

it was open until the A3 was widened and the entrance/exit was considered dangerous by the authorities - I assume compensation would have been paid at that time for the loss of the business. Why it stays as it is is anyone's guess - it is possible that the goverment bought the property from the owners rather than pay simply compensaton so the "safe house" rumour may stem from that - who knows it may even be correct.

Woman at work who drives in from Guildford each day said there's been loads of various rumours going around about that place. Everything from a safe-house to being decked out with all the latest gadgets for surveillance use.

Good call by NTE about the solitary light bulb ... very creepy that when you drive past in the dark

eff me ! if I had a quid for every time I've driven past the place, seems unlikely that there could be a hazard for punters wishing to drive into it, because it's on a slip road I believe? surely a redirected entrance would not be too hard to devise, but nonetheless a weird place standing there for so long

Whilst we're on the subject of spooky stuff on the A3, this one sends a shiver down my spine...
