The Plough, Coldharbour

We have used this pub when we lived in the area and were very pleased with the beer and the food we have had there.. Therefore when we were visiting and looking for a place for Sunday lunch with friends, we suggested we meet there.

All I can say is that I was disappointed with the cloudy beer served. Also when the food arrived, my 'Roast Beef with all the trimmings' consisted of the beef, yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and peas, all swimming in copious amounts of gravy. I'm not sure what they understand by trimming, but my understanding of 'trimmings' is obviously different.

To add insult to injury, on checking my copy of the bill today (Monday) the landlady had added up the items to 79.90... On checking and double checking on Excel, the total comes to 70.70.....

I shall be writing to the landlady requesting a cheque for the overcharged amount when I return to my home later this week.... I will let this site know the outcome when if and when I receive a reply....

The Feathers, Merstham


very good comments and very well put.

I also am a local to Merstham, but for the reasons you so aptly put in your comments, I don't use this hostelry anymore.

I think its an overrated pub and the attitude of the staff leaves a lot to be desired!!!

Have you tried the Gartland in Redhill? ot that far away and a great friendly pub...

The Castle, Outwood

Had a great dinner there with friends on Fridy night. Dispite the noise from a 40 yo hen party, a great night. Food was excellent, Adnams Broadside was great. Staff very friendly and chatty... Well worth a trip out to the sticks to visit this place..
