Our View

Film location scouts looking for a pub on a village green will find a prime candidate here. Although 17th century, it has been a pub only since the 1800s; before that it may have been tea rooms. Rich red ceilings and high-backed, red-upholstered settles help create that quintessential warm pubby feeling. A typical carte proposes prawn cocktail; chicken liver pâté; Greek spinach and feta pie; miso duck with peppers, chilli and jasmine rice. Sandwiches, jackets, and ploughman’s add to the choices.

About The area

Discover Surrey

Surrey may be better known for its suburbia than its scenery, but the image is unjust. Over a quarter of the county’s landscapes are official Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and along the downs and the greensand ridge you can gaze to distant horizons with hardly a building in sight. This is one of England’s most wooded counties, and has more village greens than any other shire. You’ll find sandy tracks and cottage gardens, folded hillsides and welcoming village inns. There’s variety, too, as the fields and meadows of the east give way to the wooded downs and valleys west of the River Mole.

Of course there are also large built-up areas, mainly within and around the M25; but even here you can still find appealing visits and days out. On the fringe of Greater London you can picnic in Chaldon’s hay meadows, explore the wide open downs at Epsom, or drift idly beside the broad reaches of the stately River Thames. Deep in the Surrey countryside you’ll discover the Romans at Farley Heath, and mingle with the monks at England’s first Cistercian monastery. You’ll see buildings by great architects like Edwin Lutyens and Sir George Gilbert Scott, and meet authors too, from John Donne to Agatha Christie.
