The Red Lion, Thames Ditton

A new landlord/ chef has recently taken over this pub and it has been completely refurbished. It is now well worth a visit. The decor is fairly striking (e.g. reclaimed doors as the bar front) the atmosphere is friendly, the beer excellent, and the food really good too - refreshing daily menu of fresh cooked food. Locals are voting with their feet as it is usually fairly busy. The back area is now closed off but may open in the future.

The Colomendy Arms, Cadole

This is a real pub - about as far removed from those horrible chain bars as you can get, and all the better for it. Small and welcoming, fantastic range of real ales, all kept excellently, log fire in winter. No music, just good beer, fireside chat, dominoes and darts. Go there. We need to use these pubs if they are not to wither and die.

Ye Olde Swan Inn, Thames Ditton

Have to disagree with the last 2 posts. I have been to this pub a number of times. It has recently been renovated with much better layout, decor and more seating outside. Overall the pub is a good place for a few beers in the evening, or a meal out. The quality of the food has improved, but this is a pub. You are going to get pub grub, and at that level it is fine. If you want cordon bleu, go to the French Table. Have to say that the service is very good, and have no problems with the Manager who has always been friendly. If you need to make a complaint, its how you do it that counts - assertive not aggressive.
