As noted, predominantly a restaurant that serves a few ales in a smart pub building. The London Pride was fairly average but the Surrey Hills Ranmore Ale was fresh and delightful. The cooking is highly competent without being especially innovative. Some solid standards clearly being set around service and comfort. A visit for food would be unlikely to disappoint and the chances are you would get a pint or two of decent ale to go with it.

Now called The Inn on the Green/The Grumpy Mole and has completely changed from the original pub no doubt at great expense. It is now an out and out Gastro-Pub with a small seating area in front of the bar. The menu looked varied and attractive. Staff were friendly and on the ball. Gives every indication of being a fairly up-market venue for a decent evening meal (at a price). Can't give a pub rating because it is essentially a restaurant.

I really don't understand the criticisms levelled by the last reviewer. Yes, it's much more a foody pub than a beer'n'cider pub, but I found both food and service to be truly excellent. Maybe they had staff off ill or something, I don't know, but it certainly does not sound like the same establishment I visited.

some curry houses serve beer on tap, does that make them a pub?

It's not a pub, its a restaurant who has some beer on. What it is good for is having a glass of wine outside. In fact the wine list is very good and reasonable. The black sheep is also very good but there is nowhere to have a drink inside, all of the tables are for eating. There is a small bar but not really for drinking, you're forever dodging or moving for the waitresses.

However, I have no idea why this place is so popular. I have been twice, once the service was good and the second time it was shocking. Took 10-15 mins for someone to even take our drinks order, then another 10 mins to get a bottle of wine. It wasn't even that busy, there were spare tables. Our waitress apologised for the wait by saying "sorry we're busy". This this really wound me up - they either took on too many bookings for the staff or should have not accepted turn up at the door bookings. Why should the customer suffer for their ineptitude to get enough staff?

On to the food; it's ok but certainly not worth the money. my steak and kidney pudding had two small pieces of kidney in it, the venison wellington had soggy pastry and overall average.

I like the decor and the ambience is good. However, you need a stepladder to see over the menus. They are just ridiculous, especially on the small tables.

no rating as it isnt a pub.

As stated below now the Inn On The Green. Pride and Black Sheep Bitter (3.50), decent condition. A food pub emphasising its wines. Family friendly
