Loud small kids playing in the pub, around 8pm last night - with their parents! Badly in need of a refurbishment, and improved management.

On wide South Street (with ample parking + Waitrose), this pub - with probably the best position in town - is totally underperforming for two main reasons.

Inept/untrained staff and no investment. Everything is tired, including the toilets. Certainly, the gents are in a third world state - outside!

Nearby, the two West Street pubs - with their recent refurbishments - leave this tired relic of a pub sadly wanting.

Needs a makeover - to attract custom from the massive new Waitrose, next door.

Particularly as Waitrose provides 2 hours free parking!

Fine beer garden with Ranmore Common views, with decking at the rear.

Still has an almost 60s type decor though.

We visited Dorking yesterday and because of traffic chaos due to roadworks parked in the public car park nearly opposite the Spotted Dog. After finishing our shopping we had lunch in the Dog as it looked inviting and indeed it was. The staff were efficient, friendly and welcoming and the food form a straightforward menu excellent with good sized portions. The Spotted dog will be our preferred lunch stop when we visit again.

Yes - a fantastic chance for a South Street pub to make a fortune. Next door to a multi-million pound new Waitrose - probably the biggest in Surrey.

Sadly, the management and staff are amateurs - probably don't know they're only holding the place until the obvious refurb, and new operators.
