user reviews of the Lamb, Surbiton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I paid a return visit to this pub yesterday. Summer Lightning & Ranmore Ale are still on. The guests yesterday were Oakham Inferno & Black Sheep Best Bitter. Aspalls has been replaced by Stowford Press. But still no real cider. Still a nice pub. But I think I may have overrated it with a 7 on my last visit.

I have to say this place really did not do it for me I like quirky but not dirty and sticky.I also like Kevin the teenager to stop picking his nose and show a flicker of good manners. Jabba The Hutt apparently is the landlord as seems intent on being a lardy arse and just sit there doing sweet f*** all.The beer was pretty bad and at £4 dear for drinking in a dump.0/10.
slerpy - 11 Sep 2016 20:47
Still a great community local, three or four good beers on, quirky and down to earth.

Great pub. Excellent ale. Well kept and varied. Just what a local should be- used all sorts of folk. Balances super family friendliness with being a damn good boozer. Love it.
Charnelhouses - 16 Apr 2014 14:11
Quite liked this quirky pub. In fact, it was my second favourite pub of the day. The interior is quite light and there is a bit of clutter, that at least makes it fell homely! Ales on were Hopback Summer Lightning, Robinsons Trooper, Oakham Bishop's Farewell & Surrey Hills Ranmore Ale. Aspall is the cider. The cheese selection served from its own counter is impressive and certainly looks enticing.
blue_scrumpy - 2 Apr 2014 19:45
I think 'fannybatta' (middle name begins with b?) gives a decent review. But would add the ale tastes good and is varied and worth the trip. Occasional feeling of being stared at by other patrons (we don't have three heads or anything...), which can be uncomfortable but perhaps they just want to be friends...
bertiekt6 - 29 Mar 2013 14:19
Not a bad pub, and yes, it does attract the more arty crowd. However, as word has spread about this place and it's grown more popular, it seems to be full of wannabe, plastic bohemian types rather than the genuine article. It can be good fun down here, but it can sometimes be a bit too "cliquey" to make it a local...I do get the impression that some of the regulars consider themselves local celebraties, rather than a buch of people who drink in the same pub!
fannybatta - 5 Jun 2012 13:02
I'm from Brighton and felt like I was back there in this arty and bohemian pub, appropriately situated in Brighton road
Uncle_Dunkel - 25 Apr 2012 15:09
Fantastic pub. One of the most bohemian pubs in Surrey and South London. I love the whole legend of Lefi Ganderson thing. It's so creative and quirky. Unfortunately, I am not that local but try to visit as much as possible. How I wish I had a local like this.
The ales are top notch as are the cheesey bar snacks. Great atmosphere and great staff that have service down to a fine art.

As a follow up to the previous message, I just want to clarify the hat was not in the bag. That was just the accusation.
The lad who's hat it was came over while I wasn't really paying attention and reclaimed the hat from our vicinity. He claimed it was in the bag but I don't believe that and the only person in our group who was paying attention said whatever it was he "reclaimed" was found to the side of the table. He certainly didn't go in the bag, my iPad was in there in if some random tried to go in it I would have noticed.
Tomesy2000 - 4 Feb 2012 17:47
I'm going to start off by saying I love the Lamb, it's a great pub however I will finish by saying I will never return. Tonight I was having a very pleasant night until we were accused of stealing a hat. A hat... If any of our group would ever steal something, we'd probably aim higher than a hat!
Anyway.. The hat was found in our vicinity.... That makes us guilty!!
It was in the bag of one of the girls in our group which was apparently witnessed by several bar staff even though the bag in question was under a table out of view of the bar staff in question. Not close to the bag, but in the bag!
That was sufficient for Adam (a person who I thought was a nice guy and the manager) to evict all 10 of us for stealing it! I remind you, a HAT!
There obviously was no doubt in his mind... It was us! Guilty!! We stole it!! Yes, a hat!

I'm actually gutted, its a friendly pub and while I know we're not the best regulars in the world , but we are customers who are there semi regularly and for Adam not to think twice about his approach is a massive shame. Friends of ours left crying and that is not a night out. I'd love there to be CCTV in the place to prove the mistake but sadly that's not the case.! Gutted!

Tomesy2000 - 3 Feb 2012 23:30
Great pub run by wonderful people. Full of character and great fun. Their cheese nights tend to be fully booked up well in advanced but that because they are great. It is on the expensive side beer wise, but otherwise it's my favourite pub in Surbiton and feel lucky we have such a place.
YugT - 1 Oct 2011 18:42
This pub is also responsible for Surbiton Ski Sunday, Giant Mouse Trap Game, giant Hungry Hipoes, and the legend of Lefi Ganderson.
Just put these names into YouTube & you will see just how crazy a pub can get.
Excellent place
vauxhall12 - 20 Aug 2011 15:20
An excellent pub, with first class cheese platters. It's where Surbiton's Bohemian set choswe to drink, but don't let that put you off.
stevefromharlow - 13 Jul 2011 13:38
Nice pub with bags of character, and a very tasty pint of Sambrooks Junction.
But >£4 for a pint? Seriously?
To be honest I'll tend to avoid this place in future, and this is only because the beer is so unreasonably expensive.
MyKingdomForAnAle - 26 May 2011 10:47
Cracking pub. Great atmosphere and superb beers. Quite small and dinky, but has the kind of 'real pub' mojo that only a few pubs ever really achieve. As such it is worth searching this place out.
Shani - 5 Mar 2011 16:48
Good pub offering a range of ale, lager and cider.

Worth finding, always found a warm welcome in here
beershot - 30 Dec 2010 16:58
Cracking little boozer. Recommended.
Ionkontrol - 24 Nov 2010 17:47
Charming two-room knocked-through pub with candles on the tables, no TVs for sport and a gentle touch of background music. Tables almost all full and stools occupied at the bar. Three "LocAle"s on - Sambrooks Junction, Twickenham Sundancer and Surrey Hills Ranmore Ale. I had a pint of Junction and it was fair. Good service and local atmosphere. Some nice pubs in Surbiton but on this visit this would be my pick. Seems to be a lot going on in Seething Wells.
SimonM - 17 Nov 2010 23:40
My first £4 pint of normal lager in this country (paid over £4 for Kronenbourg Blanc about 4-5 years ago).

Strange little pub as well, nice enough but looks more like a living room than a pub when you're inside.
FishCFC - 25 Aug 2010 15:41
Wow this pub is AMAZING!!!!!!!!! went there last night with a friend and we both were saying how nice the pub was, the outside beer garden is nice and spacious and had a marque like tent up with seats inside. The bar staff were friendly and knew what they was on about in regards to the ales, which I was informed were rotated every couple of months. Thank u for a great evening =D
Trifixion - 24 Jul 2010 19:26
Wow, I was logging on to talk about my experience and come straight into a slanging match! Is this an example of the "friendly and mature drinkers" you describe? I agree, the ciders and ales are very good, and the bar staff generally friendly, but I do find the Landlord (I presume this is"the Adam") and his special friends tend to take over, making the place a pub for locals rather than passers by. While I was there I overheard them slagging off another customer, and it made me uncomfortable. And no, I'm not a member of a Nazi organisation.
Charlotte_Sheena - 25 Apr 2010 20:53
One bad experience and you post a childish comment like this?

I'm no barfly but I've never been made to feel I should check my pride at the door. I've been a regular at many pubs over the years and this is definitely one of the friendliest I've frequented. Not only are the landlord and staff very welcoming but so are most of the drinkers. Iím not sure exactly what you did to offend the Adam but Iím guessing this was the evening you came in wearing a UKIP badge?

A big bonus of the pub is that not only do they server real ale but real cider too. Stowford Press is a welcome change to the usual selection of Magners or Strongbow usually available.
TwoPlus1 - 23 Apr 2010 10:48
Sadly this pub has gone downhill despite the efforts of some very pleasant bar staff. It's mainly due to the arrogance of the landlord, who seems far too content to enjoy his clique of adoring barflies to worry about anyone who just wants to enjoy a decent pint in his pub. Been to alot of the events and always feel like I'm at a party I haven't been invited to. Check your pride at the door. Have to agree with Sandinista, not everyone has the same joy in your ability to reproduce as you do.
buffalo_bill - 21 Apr 2010 22:07
One room winding around the central bar. A slightly unusual interior with rather eclectic decor ranging from 1970's style lightshades, modern art on the white walls, a variety of non matching chairs at tables of differing sizes. Tables have candles and there are cacti on the window cill. Some years ago this pub was like a 1970's museum piece, particularly with the fake black beams and posts screwed to the walls. The beams remain but have been painted over. The old red Skol sign is still displayed on the outside gable wall.
The pub is home to a cheese club, and a selection of more unusual cheeses are available served with bread and home made chutney.
It may sound a bit trendy even pretentious, but I felt the place to be relaxing and enjoyed my stay. Good beer helps of course, there are three handpumps; the selection was Ringwood Best Bitter, Wychwood Hobgoblin and Titanic Lifeboat.
There is a large garden/patio area to the rear.
Maldenman - 26 Feb 2010 10:44
Cosy little local with enthusiastic people running it and, yes, a wide selection of British artisanal cheeses. Two regular ales (Hobgoblin and Ringwood Bitter) and a changing guest ale. Aims to be a community pub also and seems to be fulfiling that aim.
rainlight - 17 Feb 2010 20:23
Awesome local pub, with a brilliant welcoming community. Well kept and ever changing Ales.
braumeister - 15 Feb 2010 14:32
Best pub in the world! Ever! oh and Stowford press on tap.
veg_crowley - 17 Jan 2010 12:20
This is a fantastic pub full of lovely people, the landlord and landlady are very welcoming and the beers are very good.
There always seems to be some kind of crazt scheme going on with a real community feel.
herecomedajudge - 15 Jan 2010 16:26
Charming bohemian feel to this pub, subtle lighting once night falls gives a comfy feel and the furniture adds to the ambiance of the place topped off with fantastic beer. 10 out of 10!!
shinymotorbike - 29 Oct 2009 14:13
I've got to downgrade it further due to smell from toilet, general unwholesome feel, awful uncomfortable rickety furniture. Ideal for the bohemian types and has a certain charm once night falls and disguises the flaws. Beer still good though.
lyeemoon - 25 Oct 2009 20:22
I've got to upgrade this pub because the landlady has recently had a baby ... :-)
Sandinista - 23 Oct 2009 16:16
What a wonderful little place. It looks cute as you walk up to it, and is just as you'd expect inside. An excellent range of real ales, well kept, despite the fact that most of the clients are wine-drinking types. The ales are over £3 but it's the high prices that keep this place so decent in what is otherwise the rough end of town. The pub has a lovely feature of serving a range of interesting English cheeses at all times the pub is open. Highly recommended; the best pub in Surbo.
Trev - 3 Oct 2009 13:15
I've got to downgrade this pub because the landlady has recently had a baby and the place is more like a creche at times. Ringwood still good though.
lyeemoon - 2 Oct 2009 21:13
Can't remember when in the last year we started dropping in to the Lamb but I do know we were tempted in by their chalkboard proclaiming family farm-sourced food. Having said that I've never had anything other than the cheeseboard in there which was humble (borderline frugal) but enjoyable. The landlord(s) are warm and efficient, amongst their regulars they are clearly well-thought-of and their attention to music and atmosphere has made this place a growing success through the past 12 months.

I do remember going one night in the winter and seeing a fire-walking event taking place in the beer garden. Quirky and typical of the 'folk' feel to the place. I wouldn't be surprised to see a skiffle band in here at some point or a local meeting of an environmental group.

I'd suggest not sitting by the back door as you get a waft from the gents and a draught from the beer-garden door but the small round tables nestled against the left wall are perfect for couples and friends to gather in the low-light over drinks. Alternatively there are a couple of couches and a smattering of bar-stools generally occupied by the regulars.

Can't remember what I usually drink in there so apologies for not commenting on the drinks.
smorgasbord - 27 Aug 2009 13:43
This pub started off quite quietly but is now coming into its own thanks to the delightful young couple who run it. It's now built up a discerning clientele in line with its excellent location and the place gets very busy at peak times. Beer is excellent, great pint of Ringwood today. Good sized garden, if you want it, ideal for children and fag ashes!
lyeemoon - 21 May 2009 20:51
I live in Surbiton and this is my favourite pub. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, the atmosphere is easygoing and relaxed. And I love all of the events that they have going on. Can't recommend it enough.
ms9cjm - 5 May 2009 16:42
As a former regular and player for the pub rugby team, I've popped in a few times lately and enjoyed every visit.
It's a different atmosphere to what it used to be, but it's a great little place for a good, well kept real ale and a chat with your mates.
I_love_Ellie - 20 Mar 2009 15:07
This is far and away my favourite pub in Surbiton - the owners are great and the overall community ethos of the place is a testament to all their hard work. Not only is there the monthly Homage de Fromage (can't recommend it highly enough), but you can select cheeses from their awesome cheese counter at any point along with fresh bread and pickles. Stowford on tap, great rioja!
Bets81 - 19 Mar 2009 22:06
Have to say this place is now one of the better places to go for a drink in Surbiton .
Nice and friendly staff , decent beer (and they've got the third pump and rotate it regularly ) and a great atmosphere - often absolutely rammed during weekend evenings , its a good place to come and enjoy yourself .

They have theme evenings and last monday of the month is Homage de Fromage , a cheese tasting evening . Get stuffed on cheese'n'bread'n'pickles for a tenner.

Plenty of other things going on and they even have a facebook page - they are that with it .....

Wish them well and will still be coming in for a pint or two.
UriGagarin - 17 Jan 2009 19:27
I live in Surbiton and this has easily become my favourite pub. Very friendly staff, a good atmosphere, decent beer/cider on tap and to top it off they have an awesome cheese counter with a range of weird and wonderful cheeses (obviously, being a cheese counter!). It offers something different from the run-of-the-mill boozers so if you are looking for an honest and decent pub this takes some beating.
elgordo - 25 Oct 2008 11:52
Small, busy pub with good atmosphere and friendly bar staff. The pub's cats provide entertainment for the customers and get spoilt rotten!
Marlow - 4 Oct 2008 16:41
A great pub, refreshing change to Youngs and theme pubs. 3 beers on tap, personally I would recomended the Black Sheep, although all are good. There is a good choice of lagers and wines too, and if you're peckish sample the cheese board, Stinking Bishop rules! The pork scratchings are the best in the world even if they do make me fat. This is by far the best pub in Surbiton/Kingston area.
Sandinista - 31 Aug 2008 18:48
In here today, welcoming place and some good chat with the landlord and some locals. Hobgoblin and Flowers IPA but hopefully a third handpump on after a forthcoming refit.
GuideDogSaint - 1 Jun 2008 21:48
Of course it's expensive..it's owned by Punch Taverns and is not a Free House as described...but the licensees are trying despite this handicap! BQ 4.5
Insearchofthebestpint - 4 Apr 2008 19:03
Last time I went in it had just re-opened so I'm due for a revisit as last time it did look like it wasn't quite finished!

Will head back after reading these good reviews and try it again but my hopes are up now!!
bargirl30 - 6 Nov 2007 15:58
Great cheese Gommit......
anonymous - 10 Sep 2007 19:09
Very simply refurbed pub - paint job and a few changes of furniture .
Now does Cheese platters - which I'm not sure of the success of - but nice place to chill out of an evening.

The beer is OK - could do with some guidance for some more seasonal fair - Hobgoblin in the summer months ?

A tad pricey - but to be honest its going that way so they might as well get there early - not many of the old crowd there - and maybe that's not a bad thing, build a different clientelle and get a different rep .
Nice feel , certainly better than the rather strained last few months of Ian and June.

Wish them well, will certainly be popping in every now and again.


UriGagarin - 20 Jul 2007 20:07
Nice pub which has a nice feel to it & nice couple who run it but prices are ridiculous. £3.00 for a pint of bitter ?

Its a shame because it's one of the better pubs in the area....
Beer.lover - 7 Jul 2007 17:08
I must say this pub is a jolly nice, impressively decorated place. I have no idea why some people have a problem with it but then not everyone can be pleased. I shall be visiting regularly as it's a refreshing change to big screen sports and normal, ordinary carlsberg on tap.
princess_of_surbiton - 11 Jun 2007 22:44
Harvey' Sussex Best on and in great condition, comfortable and what a great garden, did anyone know there is a garden twice the size of the pub?

Great alternative to the river on the weekend lovely sun trap with well thought out shaded areas, benches on the terrace and cussions and blankets on the lawn
Sherlock - 11 Jun 2007 22:37
Sometimes seems a little quiet, but this really is a great little pub with a charming couple in charge.


lawrence17 - 3 Jun 2007 10:46
A recently reopened pub with a u-shaped lounge and a central bar. A bit austere for my tastes with bare wood floorboards and a mish-mash of hard chairs. There is, however 3 comfortable leather sofas. Only 2 cask ales on the bar, though the Hobgoblin was very nice if rather expensive at £3 per pint. A little quiet when I was in there but it was early evening.
boozers_knows - 24 Mar 2007 16:51
Refurbished in an unpretentious style, serving Hobgoblin (£3 a pint!) and GK IPA. A handful of local people have complained about 'noise' from this pub but it doesn't seem like a rowdy place to me. Besides, why move near to a pub and then complain there's a pub nearby?
beeronaut - 24 Mar 2007 13:24

Now open again. It is a non-smoking pub, that has been re-painted and re-furnished with a few leather sofas.

I don't think it is going to become a big part of the Surbiton pub scene, but it is quite nice to have it back.
anonymous - 20 Mar 2007 12:06
I saw the boards for the windows coming off so I popped my head around the door to see that the interior has been painted and there is information on the blackboards outside.

I thought we had lost this pub but it looks like it might see another day.

Good luck to the new tennant, you have a tough audience.
Sherlock - 28 Feb 2007 13:46
The Lamb appears to have failed again under new management. The pub is closed with the door and windows boarded up.
beeronaut - 25 May 2006 13:44
I have seen plans for this pub and I think that they are very exciting. The plans look like they are going to bring this beautiful and historic building up to date and back in the running as one of the best pubs in the area.

I will post any further information if and when I get it.

Signed
Concerned local
anonymous - 8 May 2006 11:16
On trying to visit this pub, last Sunday lunchtime - no joy, it seemed closed. No note on the door/ window to indicate why ( is it now closed for refurbishment, I wonder ?) - so, as an exercise in customer relations, I'm giving it a massive 0 out of 10.

I therefore went over the road to The Black Lion, where they seem more customer - orientated
JohnBonser - 22 Mar 2006 13:48
Just to say that contrary to what it says at the top this place is OPEN, it's under a management team at the moment and will be undergoing a refurb in the summer.

How do you get it off 'CLOSED' status on the listings?

Cheers

Gav
thegavster - 14 Mar 2006 17:15
I know of the person who has (apparently) bought this pub, it is due to remain as a pub bar however will serve food.
thegavster - 30 Jan 2006 17:52
JB - I am told that this place will continue as a pub. Whether to go back or not will very much depend on who takes over!!!
Lozmate - 12 Dec 2005 13:24
Sorry it's closed - does anyone know if it's going to remain a pub or will be converted to flats ?
JohnBonser - 9 Dec 2005 13:28
Not sure I see a problem with punters being banned for violence/unreasonable behaviour, after all very few people go to a pub for violence/hassle.

Anyway at the end of the day it's the landlords choice, if you're so good why didn't you buy the lease and run it yourself...on you didn't perhaps it's not that easy to run a pub, I know I couldn't....could you?
anonymous - 24 Nov 2005 00:58
This pub is now closed for business. Foolishly many various longstanding customers who drank in there were barred/banned/pissed off by by the owners for a variety of pedantic reasons. This has funnily enough had a knock on effect, much to the detriment of the pub over the last 3 years. Shame as in its day it was a terrific place to drink which was as much down to the owners as the people that drank there. I think the lesson learnt here is that if you let pride and principle get in the way of running what is otherwise a successful venture then you are going only one way.......
anonymous - 23 Nov 2005 13:58
I think the previous person must have been confused, I drink in various pubs and they are always plesent to me. Though I do tend to find that they don't take kindly to rude or abusive punters (who would running a pub). Excellent well looked after ales and they even open early for the rugby.
robidy - 1 Jul 2005 15:10
One on the worst pubs I have ever been in, Landlords are rude and get upset if you drink anywhere else.

One to miss at all costs
mld - 16 Jun 2005 14:32
Went in yesterday for a quick drink and ended up staying for hours. The welcome was friendly, as always, and the beer garden is looking great these days (although we stayed inside where it was nice and cool and we could hear the jukebox). I reckon it'll be my first choice for summer drinking in Surbiton this year.
anne - 31 May 2005 20:58
I was here a couple of years ago and it needed a bit doing up but they ahav a garden and the bar staff were friendly.
ian21260957148 - 31 May 2005 20:39
I am a bit surprised by the comments below having just revisited with same youngs drinker and (not so) new resident (see Dec 03). Didn't notice much change on our saturday night visit other than the karaoke being truely awful. At least the is still great
lout_from_the_lane - 8 Mar 2005 10:22
Ive been drinking in this pub for well over 10 years now and am still a regular. The pub has a great atsmophere and the majority of the time is friendly. Having said that, the landlord and landlady think that the pub is their sitting room and dislike the behaviour of semi-drunk individuals, even going as far as telling someone to stop laughing too loud ffs. Good pub on busy nights although you might have to que up outsiide the loos to get a place on the window sill. LMAO.
Reppy - 8 Feb 2005 15:42
Thought the gaffe was due to be sold......I went to their leaving do and the guys were still arand the following month? Still a great pub though, it really was TIME for I & J to move on because they lack originality. Pop in for a drink...expect the "landlord" to be asleep fullstop.

anonymous - 29 Jan 2005 01:57
Tuesday night quiz. Mmmmmmmmm,Puzzler this (no pun intended),it has a good format and a good mixture of questions,but(and this is a big BUT)the whole evening just drags on, due to constant interuptions (usually from the landlord trying to be funny,telling someone to shut up or just having a random conversation with the person sitting next to him), it becomes very tedious and you end up getting very bored. other than that the other nights are good especially karaoke and free jukebox fridays(when it's busy,that is!!!).
parsnip - 22 Oct 2004 18:21
Good spicy morgans boozer, frequented by baldies and a strange looking small chap about 40ish who is continually asleep everytime i see him in there. Do not wake him as you'll get no sense from him.
Codpieceface - 6 Oct 2004 13:24
I used to occasionally go in this pub about 20 years ago. Sunday lunchtimes used to be great, with bowls of nuts, roast potatoes, and prawns on the bar. Sometimes used to see James Hunt and his little crowd in there.
Bruce - 8 Sep 2004 15:01
Bit confused by the previous few comments - went in last night and found Ian and June still very much in charge, and as friendly as ever. The lessons in pouring Munchner Kindl weissbier from the bottle were much appreciated!
dsf - 7 Sep 2004 07:10
I havn't been in The Lamb since previous Landlord & Landlady left at the beginning of this month. I never noticed any 'boorish attitudes' except from the occasional loud mouthed tossers that wandered in, Ian didn't always suffer fools gladly :-) They will be missed.
(Not posted from one of the 'clique' crowd).
Kev Baker - 15 Aug 2004 15:39
I am a regular in this pub and think the criticism is unfair. Yes there is a bit of a cliquey atmosphere sometimes and the beer on occasions has been below par because of the cellar. But ive always felt welcome and found both Ian and June were ALWAYS very friendly even at the end
lisa - 15 Aug 2004 15:25
Went in here the other night and had a very bizarre experience - they had no beer to sell and the landlady offered a very muddled explanation. Some kind of problem with the sale referred to below. This pub has a desperate air about it and I wont be going in again until the situation is sorted.
LM - 5 Aug 2004 16:11
I have to agree with the previous comment. This place has plummeted over the last couple of months.
Real shame as was a good little boozer with a fun quiz. Sadly the prospect of the sale has proved too much and it is suffering very badly from ďlandlord leaving syndromeĒ. This has resulted in a very unfriendly and unpleasant atmosphere even to regular drinkers.
I wonít be going back, if at all, until the sale is done and dusted.

Pete - 5 Aug 2004 11:25
This pub is has gone rapidly down hill over the last month or so.
The beer is currently undrinkable and atmosphere untenable.
Understand landlord is selling up and it shows in his boorish, arrogant attitude to both his customers and cellar.

Best avoided until the sale is complete
anonymous - 19 Jul 2004 11:27
Great potential, let down by a cliquey atmosphere.
anonymous - 19 Jul 2004 11:05
Give this place a miss, strange atmosphere, beer awful.
anonymous - 19 Jul 2004 10:58
I can only add my praises to what's gone before. Ian and June - wonderful landlord/landlady. Great quiz Tuesdays. Friendly locals.
Barry - 17 Jun 2004 15:47
If you're around surbiton on a tuesday night - pop in here. Ian and June are wonderful (part publicans part comedy heroes) they make everyone feel welcome and refuse to serve a bad pint.

dave - 23 Mar 2004 12:03
Great pub, great landlord, great beer!
Tom - 15 Feb 2004 22:56
Excellent pub, nice barman who I think is actually the landlord...definitely a top pub!!
Rob - 31 Dec 2003 16:56
Don't agree that it is best in World but I liked this best in Surb. (the youngs drinker preferred the Victoria and the new resident preferred the New Prince)
Had the feel of a drinkers establishment decorated with beer mats and postcards with a freindly barman who shared a joke and helpfully found a stool for my mate whose had too much youngs

This is the best pub in the world. Bar none. Warm atmosphere and they don't mind too much if you sing when drunk. Truly a giant among ale houses.

The best pub in Surbiton. Great beer, quiz on a Tuesday is a laugh, mainly due to Ian and June's comedy double act) and a great place to watch the rugby.

The landlord is an excellent cellar man. As well as a guest beer, he now has an extra beer of the month.
