|Occasionally I walk up Box Hill and make my way to this pub but only because there isn't another in the vicinity. It's an embarrassingly naff 1950s style Western theme pub. The last time I was there they were playing Rhinestone Cowboy and the name should tell you all you need to know about it. The beer is watery and only sold in half pints, Clint Eastwood would not be pleased, I haven't eaten there so I don't know about the food, but today I arrived at 11.42 a.m. and was told that there was no alcohol until (high) noon. I felt like saying "Smile when you say that stranger", but I simply turned left the premises. It really is a pity that there isn't another pub nearby.|

|This place really does my head in.|
It's location at Box Hill is great and they have a huge potential trade because of it. But then you visit the crap hole.
A very crappy theme bar which can't serve decent food and as for beer, don't even think about it.
Poor, poor, very poor. Could be so much better. Save your money guys.

|The food here is pretty mediocre, the chilli isn't hot, they can't cook a steak and the chicken burger we had was dry. The price you pay you expect something decent, and don't ask me about their nachos - what a pile of shit. No flavour to the chilli, no guacamole, it was a chore to eat. If you enjoy the food here you'd be better off going back to eating Iceland meat pies and tripe, it will be significantly cheaper. Plus it's 15 quid for a £4 bottle of wine. Service was pretty piss-poor, and all.|

|Reasonable place with good food but don't expect any decent ale.|

|We like it, as a family of grown ups love this area of Surrey and eat here on a semi-regular basis. Food is plentiful, hot and of a good standard, only once with a meal did we return it but this was a one off in maybe a couple of years. Staff are friendly, work hard and professional. |
Occasionally too many kids and the jail area has given me temptation to lock a few up, but it is family orientated, clean, safe and reasonably priced.
