The Swan, Walton on Thames

Went for food and rinks this evening..will I never learn.. Entranced back by the well planned garden, cosy corners and view over the river it is easy to think the food and service will match the surroundings..
However, disappointment yet again.. The vegetarian choice is outstanding in its limitations!! Only one vegetarian main - pea and mint risotto and no vegetarian dish on the daily specials..
My partner and I opted for a side salad and side of fries due to the lack of choice..
The third member of our party was disappointed to be told that there were no mussels left . Shame they didn't let people know what was not available before selection was made..
We also had a selection of artisan breads and dipping oil, this consisted of two types of bread and a pot of balsamic vinegar mixed with oil - not proper dipping oil and not the correct consistency or mix.
The food was pricey as well as the drinks - over 6.00 for a glass of house red..
As the food really was nothing special it does not warrant the high prices. Paying for the view is one thing but if this pub just made an effort it could be a fantastic place.. shame really

The Golden Grove, Chertsey

Interesting pub... The inside is certainly not what you expect from first impressions on the outside.. Went on a Friday evening with children as had heard it had a good garden for children. Play area is fantastic. Surroundings lovely - woods and lots of grassy areas.
Food - was good..but limited. The menu was described as temporary but most of the few items listed were not actually available.
The inside of the pub does not do the outside justice at all - souless and lacking in warmth. However the barstaff were friendly, service was fast ( but there were only a handful of customers) and the kids enjoyed it...
I would return as it ticked all the boxes for a night out with kids to grab a bite to eat...
This place could be a goldmine with a little bit of effort...

The Magpie, Sunbury on Thames

Had a nice drink here last weekend, as ever enjoyed the surroundings, friendly service and dog was made welcome. Good deal on buying a bottle of wine rather than two glasses
I am always surprised by how quiet it is as it is a good pub.
