April 2012. The Hook and Hatchet has been under new management since 23.January 2012 . Much refurbishment has taken place and the menu has seen extensive additions. The food is top rate and the service friendly and welcoming. There is a log fire for cold winters or summers nights. Dogs and children are welcome. There is a daytime and evening menu. Food is not served on a Monday, but drinks are available, along with tea coffee and sumptious cake and snacks. There are various bands booked in for Sunday afternoons, which will be extended to Friday's as the warmer weather hahaha sets in. We look forward to seeing new customers as well as the regular clientelle.

Not sure if this pub has changed hands again but up until a few months ago I would have happily recommended this out of the way pub.
Went back last Sunday for a late lunch to find the place unusually empty except for 3 or 4 couples. We was informed "no Sunday roasts - only serving food off the limited main blackboards" OK it was 5.00pm so may have sold out, even if so few people in.
Ordered beef burgers & chips & pint of Whit stable Bay Organic. The beer was flat & tepid, not nice at all. Whist sitting outside waiting (along time) for our meals we noticed some tables had still not been cleared & remained that way for our whole stay, this despite the place was very quite.
Also the whole place now looks discernly grubby & unkempt.
Ordered a pint of Spitfire in place of the horrible W.B.O. Wrong move, this was even worst! This was one of the few times I have walked out of a pub leaving a near full glass.
To be fair the homemade beef burger & chips was quite good (even if it did take a while) but we won't be coming back.
Wot a shame because this is a nice pub (if remote) but it needs good beer, good food and good service if it is too survive and on this showing, it won't.

Nestling in the green folds of the North Downs.A picturesque tile and weatherboarded 'restaurant'!

Ideal for walkers and horse people requiring sustinance but as a pub.....I'll let you decide for yourselves!

All Shep's ale off on my visit...MB/Spitfire and Oyster!

My wife and myself went to this pub on a trip down memory lane as i used to work here many years ago we took our young daughter on a saturday night to eat it was fairly busy but not packed we spoke to the landlord and after a discerning look said we could eat with our toddler not sure whether kids are still allowed after 7.30 they always used to be and she is very well behaved and would have probably slept through the evening anyway we sat down and half an hour later the landlord comes over and explains that at just gone 8 on a saturday night that his chef (who i was unaware was from flaming henrys makes sense now) had ran out of food now i'm no chef but surely this is unlikely i mean what was he going to do sunday? very disappointing shame used to be great
