|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.

|Called in on a Friday evening - our first visit since the pub was refurbished. It was a warm summer's evening and the place was heaving, with plenty of atmosphere. The "cliquiness" of the old pub has fortunately gone. The car park was full but we managed to find a table easily enough. They had just put on a new barrel of Surrey Hills Shere Drop which was very pleasantly kept. As I'm a creature of habit and it being a Friday i had the fish and chips. To die for! The whole menu looked very interesting. Very friendly staff and despite the pub's being busy, the service was speedy and efficient. Well recommended.|

|Popped in last weekend for a friend's birthday. A much underated pub. There were 3 ales on from Tillingbourne, Hogs Back and Surrey Hills as well as the carbon footprint unfriendly Doom Bar. Excellent staff, all very friendly. All the beers we had were in excellent condition. There is live music on occasion. There seemed to be a good food menu. Definitely a good place for just a drink of for food as well. |
