The Onslow Arms looked like a fairly unassuming roadside pub at first glance. But then I entered the car park and found an area with around 100 cars parked and an overspill area with countless more. The pub itself is a rambling affair with a number of rooms. It's clearly another place that is more of a restaurant than a pub. But there was a pleasant patio area at the rear which seemed more popular for drinkers. Unfortunately I was driving and drivers appear to be penalised here. £4 for a cranberry juice makes this one of the most expensive places I have ever been to. Ales were Caledonian Onslow Arms Ale, Surrey Hills Shere Drop, Little Beer Corporation & Sharps Cornish Coaster. There were also some posh-type lagers seemingly available. But I did watch one toff try to order one which was not available. His second choice was unavailable too. At that point it was easier for the barman to inform him of what was actually available! Nice pub. But I can only award a 4/10 for the completely unrealistic pricing. I wish I had declined to pay and walked out as £4 for a fruit juice is lunacy, Surrey or not.

We didn't eat but our friends did and very good it was apparently. Beer choice was a little limited in one of them was Sharps doomed beer which I don't like and another a pub badged beer made by Caledonian which my friends warned me off being over malty. I had Shere Drop which was quite acceptable but not as good I feel as their Ranmore Ale and not a scratch on Tillingbourne's beers. Anyway good atmosphere and busy for a Tuesday.

Great pub and well worth a visit - beer range excellent, staff very friendly and seemed to have a genuine rapport with the locals who were steadily streaming in on an early friday evening - I always see this as a good sign as they know where to choose in an area and this place was clearly very popular. Food was obviously important and the menu looked very nice for another day, but thank goodness they have left plently of space for those wanting just a beer or two in the evening. Garden very nice with looks of interesting pots and plants and car park was much larger than you'd expect when to turn down the side of the pub. All in all, one not to miss.

Visited again on my friend's birthday and again the place didn't disappoint. We only go for a beer or three and are made just as welcome by the staff as the diners in the restaurant part. Surrey Hill's Shere Drop, Tillingbourne Hop Troll, and a couple of others. Good quality.

Since its refurbishment this has picked up nicely as a local pub - beer was Shere Drop, TEA and Cornish Coaster (plus others, I forget) and it is also something of a destination restaurant - it was certainly full on a Thursday lunchtime which is unheard of in many places. Staff nice also.
