Very nice boozer - has had new landlord (Geoff) who knows how to run a pub, and a great new chef since 2012/3, so all the old reviews are out of date now

Beer is kept well, had 3 ales (Timothy Taylor, Seafarers and Greeen King IPA) which kept good quality over a weekend despite several of us trying to drink the barrels dry.
Food is very good - managed to serves 11 of us 3 times over the weekend without any stress, big selection of mains, great burgers, sandwiches, and can especially recommend the Calamari.

Bar staff all very friendly and helpful - Geoff the landlord, lovely Jo serving us beer and shots until 2am, and 2 other very shapely yummy barmaids taking shifts to look after us

Good TV lounge and garden out the back if there is a big group. A bit tired looking in places as the other reviews say, but it is a pub not a winebar, so no complaints.
Needs some more customers outside of tourist season, so do pop along

Lovely location, place is a bit tired inside but staff were friendly to kids dog and wife and value for money the food is easily the best in surrey hills. The roast beef was very good and the beer choice was nice and well kept.

Popped in for lunch and a beer - whilst the beer was good, food was a mistake. Pity, as people very friendly and a nice fire.

I've been visiting this pub regularly for 15 years. To me it's going through it's worst phase of ownership. Food is medicocre as is the beer. I have been there on occasion when all hand pumps have been off. Better to try the Kings Head around the corner now under new ownership or The Volunteer just up the road also under new ownership.
