Some catching up to do! I went here on Sunday and had the cheese and tomato panini, on Monday I had the veggie Texan Burger and today I opted for the Lasagne! I had a pint of real ale on each occasion! You can even sit by the windows and watch the traffic and people walking past.

Today I went to Wetherspoons in Guildford and had fish and chips with mushy peas and curry sauce. I Even had a pint of Abbot Ale to spice things up. You can sit at one of the many tables in this big pub.

Today I went to Wetherspoons in Guildford and had a vegetable curry. I also had a pint of American IPA and sat at a table and you can even watch people walking past outside.

Worse than the Drummond, despite having a beer here. The beer took what seemed like an age to be served. The range of ales is disappointing. Nothing above 4%? Can't even make it a full pint either. Miserable and drab.

Bad today. Even the cash machine does not work! A bit like the food service! Staff are the most miserable i've come across. Only a week until the Kings Head across the road opens at least.

Given the recent reviews and issues of the Stoke Pub I decided it was time to try again. For a change there was no unfriendly service at the bar, just a nice lady working there - foreign no doubt but a nice lady. I was assuming i'd be waiting half an hour for a pizza and thus end up walking out rather than complaining as i'm a nice guy. It arrived within 15 minutes and was a very good pizza. I'll give it the thumbs up for now, but would like a bit more real Ale selection in the future.

Much better today for some reason! Almost totally empty so thats probably why. The Landlord was enjoying the cricket. The beer is pretty good and they showed plenty of sport on tv!

Pint of Olivers Island. Amazingly weak beer but drinkable. They do Monday darts nights now but where is the darts board?

Pub has now opened again. Excellent tasting real ale and the interior is much smarter and brighter than previously. Very good.

£4.30 a pint. I''m not surprised pubs are closing down. Disappointed. Cut it to £3.50 for an ale and I may return.

I made the mistake of coming here again, full of tossers, especially in the beer garden why cant people have their beer in peace? At £4.40 I wasted time and money and liver space here. Shocking!

Big is entitled to his opinion. Yours - ''some nice ales and it''s clean!''

The best pub of Terrible Tuesday. The staff are nice and the food is good. The ales were half decent.

Empty and boring, but I don't mind empty if the staff are nice and beer is good. Much better than the Stoke for sure!
1 Aug 2017 16:56
Well i've never had a smile off the bar woman here. I think she is foreign, very empty pub unless there is Rugby on. Bland but ok and a spacious beer garden
8 Jun 2017 19:02
Totally empty on a weekday afternoon indeed I was the only customer. Incredibly bland pub with bland real ale choices. Better than the Stoke though.

Would have stopped here but there isn't a beer garden on a sunny day. More of a Winter Pub.

Reopened on the High Street by Stonegate, who did an excellent job on the tasteful refurbishment of this historic establishment.
24 Mar 2017 08:19
It isn't that often I walk into a pub then decided to leave after 2 minutes. Quite clearly the woman working here ignored me as I politely said Good Day and was blanked. There wasn't even many people at the bar on a Saturday afternoon near Christmas. I believe someone else was also wanting a drink and being ignored. Certainly poor service, and it happened months ago when eating a meal here, sorry I cannot forgive this pub for at least 3 months! 0/10 for now!.

Changing hands in January sold for £1.5 m
Lets hope it goes back to being a lovely village pub not the poncy place it is now.
8 Dec 2016 13:04
If it`s true it`s sold that`s fantastic news
I love it when smug arrogant people get their comeuppance, it looks like it`s happened here to two very snug arrogant people in fact kings of Smug & Arrogance.
I agree with the previous comment and hope the new people bring back the village pub feel.
29 Oct 2016 17:45
Not surprised the pub has just been sold again. This lot had no idea, basically killed off a lovely locals pub and created a city eating house, What`s the point ???????????

Lets hope the new company turn it back to a village friendly pub.

I was going to play pool but some chavs were having a game! Typical! However the pub was nice and quiet on a late August Saturday. The only downside was the lack of real ale. Why are they selling 4% beers instead of Old Speckled Hen or Abbot ale? As usual Jeff Stelling was ranting and raving on Soccer Saturday.
26 Aug 2017 17:58
It is big and spacious unlike some pubs. Can't really fault but it does attract a slightly rough crowd and is a by a busy road. Good choice of ales.
12 Aug 2017 20:40
Well, I went here today and couldn't even get in a game of Pool. Some chavs were hogging the tables. So I guess there was beer, yes one real ale so lets go with the Old speckled Hen! And then I could watch Jeff Stelling reading out the football scores and then I left. Thats what life is like when you drink in a pub on your own!
