Having driven past this pub for round about ten years and always having wanted to stop when Simon suggested an impromptu lunch we decided to go here .
What a fabulous decision I can honestly say this is the best pub meal I’ve eaten in years
Food is locally sourced and cooked in the fantastic smoke house out the back of the pub ! What a cute little courtyard to sit and relax in ! The staff I can honestly say are the best we have come across in any uk pub or restaurant we have been in .
Gareth the general manager was amazing funny welcoming and went the extra mile ! Although after his good banter about the British summer time the sky’s decide to open up! (yes Gareth we’re still holding you responsible ) But even the rain couldn’t ruin this great experience! All the staff were polite and attentive without being invasive .
The location is perfect even being on a main road you feel your tucked away in the Surrey countryside with the sun shining you coujd be anywhere in Europe !
Inside was a quaint but classy country pub and the bar maid was friendly and welcoming. A nice touch was that you get tea towels (small ones) as your napkin – Si prefers this for his eco mindset, but it was a lovely touch and made it a bit more unique.
When the food came I actually felt like I was in a first class restaurant not a country pub. I cannot wait to give their sister pubs a try! The Winterton arms in Chiddingfold recently taken over in January and the grey horse in Kingston which has live every music every night !
An absolute plus point and a indication to how attentive staff are the young man serving us when we asked for the bill said should he bring the card machine (unheard of in most establishments) take note this as a costumer is highly appreciated and saves staff time.
The meals served are outstanding and are ages and matured on the premise this is white a unique process and the quality shows.
All in all a fantastic over all experience an we will definitely be returning I cannot recommend this lovely pub highly enough. When you get the bill you receive mini packets of love hearts – a nice touch to end your experience at this delightful place.
Also make sure you give the dog a tummy rub, she loves it 🙂
