|Not the pub I happily remember from the 1980s. Abbott & Old Speckled Hen, OK - nothing special. Two seating areas, one designed for dining from the cheap GK menu. The other side with the most horrendous wallpaper known to man & an enlarged public bar.|

|It is located away from the centre of Ewell and is a Greene King pub which only sells Greene King IPA and Abbott although IPA is cheap at £2.69. This pub was clearly 2 rooms with the bar in the middle in the past.There was plenty of seating but it was not especially comfortable. The decor was pleasant with the usual flat screen TVs on the wall. There was a fair sized beer garden and parking was adequate. Although I didn't eat there, the prices were reasonable with a fair choice. The pub was OK but Greene King beer is not my favourite.|

|The Eight Bells is a typical locals pub, but its large garden area sets it past being dingy. Inside it has classic pub interior with a pool table, darts board and fruit machines. The staff are friendly and chatty to regulars and especially newcomers. The garden area needs a spruce up but it is a good area for kids and to chill out with a pint after a long day. |
It is the cheapest pub in the affluent Ewell Village which generally means the tradesmen and more working class people in Ewell venture here. This also does bring the more rough local people and there has been a few fights and alterations this summer.
In general, this is a no frills standard pub with mainly a 40-50 year old male builder crowd and sometimes their families. Decent pub food, standard selection of beers that you'd expect from Greene King that you would visit for a laugh and a good drink. Weekends are busy and week day nights bring a nice little crowd of old men who all have a nice story. Definitely worth a visit for a genuine pub experience.

|Why have all the previous comments been removed, oh yes Charlie is in the move and he thinks that removing the comments will make it a better place.................|
Lets hope the new people make a better job of the place and get rid of the undesirables that Charlie holds in such great esteme

|Better than it looks from the outside (never trust a pub with a carpark at the front, it suggests you may need to make a quick getaway).|
It is very smoky, I didn't notice if it did food but I can't believe you'd want to eat in that environment.
It's not the worst pub in Ewell (congrats to the King William on that score) but it ain't the best either.
