Cowper Arms, Letty Green

A very nice pub in a beautiful location with absolutely great food (Foodlover67, they must have read your remarks as everything was just the opposite).
It is just the place to spend a few hours. If you are in a hurry avoid this place. We arrived at 1.30 for Sunday lunch. The barstaff did not have a clue what coke was and after two attempts at telling him, he still gave us lemonade. He tried to make us sit outside to eat even though there were empty tables inside! We had to ask other staff if the inside tables were reserved, which they were not. The service was absolutely slow and appalling with only one barmaid who knew anything (she had black hair and wore the pub t-shirt, not to be confused with the woman I guess was the Manageress). It took four hours to get served starters, main and pudding and we left at 5.30. I would have been extremely unhappy apart from the fact that my friend and I were planning on a lazy Sunday afternoon lunch and the food was fantastic.
When we arrived there were two ales on (Adnams Bitter and London Pride), but by the time we left there was none.
To sum this pub up is easy, if you want good food in pleasant surroundings and have time to kill, this is the place for you. If you want competent, attentive waiting and barstaff, beers to be changed, empty glasses and plates taken when full ones are brought, do not go here. This could be a fantastic pub with the right staff, unfortunately it is not

If there is anything such as a Nicholsons chain pub, this is it

Not too bad a pub, but due to the area is full of tourists and office workers. It also does not take many people to make it full. I would recommend if you just want a quick pint of which the four ales are good. But if you want to sit and relax it is not the place to be, unless the weather is fine and most people are outside
