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.

Searched out the Onslow Arms for the first time on Saturday for a spot of late lunch (it would have been early lunch if the western section of the M25 hadn’t been goddam awful ) and were reasonably impressed.
We were aware it is a food led establishment as we had found it via the restaurant reports on trip advisor, but was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked as a comfortable pub as well. Several separate internal sections dotted around the central bar area and the ones closer to the bar are comfortable just for a beer. Was blessed with a fine weather day so could utilise the large back courtyard garden which is a very pleasant spot.
We had come here for both the beer and the food and were happy with the offerings on both accounts. There are two banks of three ale hand pumps on the large L shaped bar area which were dispensing Surrey Hills Shere Drop, Caledonian Flying Scotsman and Sharps Cornish Coaster. And then a solitary pump in the middle of these, which is easily missed, had The Source from the nearby Tillingbourne micro brewery. Both this and the Shere Drop were very well kept and the Shere drop was an excellent pint.
The main food menu is more gastro than traditional pub fare, but there is a decent selection of sandwiches and lighter meals on the lunch time menu and , although at Surrey price levels, the quality and quantity was very good.
Can see myself utilising this one again when back in the vicinity.
