Chef Rodrigo Fereira’s culinary prowess shines through in every dish, from starters to salads, plates to bowls. However, it’s the crafted burgers and Detroit-style pizzas that steal the spotlight. Take, for instance, the Golden Chicken crafted burger – a towering masterpiece featuring crispy fried chicken, jack cheese, smoked bacon, pickles, lettuce, tomato, and remoulade sauce, all nestled between a pillowy brioche bun. It’s a feast fit for royalty, served with your choice of house-cut fries or mixed greens.

And let’s not forget about the pizza. The Detroit-style pies at The Social Tavern are a revelation, boasting a thick, crispy crust that gives way to a chewy interior. Layers of cheese, pepperoni, and tangy tomato sauce meld together in a symphony of flavors that are as comforting as they are indulgent. It’s a slice of Motor City magic that you won’t find anywhere else in Surrey.

Beyond the culinary delights, The Social Tavern’s ambiance strikes the perfect balance between modernity and nostalgia. Exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, and wooden tables create a rustic yet refined backdrop for patrons to unwind. The cozy fireplace adds a touch of warmth, while the heated patio invites guests to bask in the beauty of the great outdoors, even on chilly evenings.

One quirky feature that’s sure to capture your attention is the tradition of adorning the tavern’s pillars with signed American dollar bills – a whimsical nod to the diverse tapestry of patrons who call The Social Tavern home.

In essence, The Social Tavern isn’t just a place to eat and drink – it’s a sanctuary where friendships are forged, memories are made, and community thrives. So, whether you’re a longtime resident of Fleetwood or just passing through, make sure to pay a visit to this hidden gem. After all, as the owners themselves proclaim, you can always count on The Social Tavern to be there for you.
