Our Inspector's view

A charming village pub set located between Leatherhead and Esher, The Victoria Oxshott has a relaxed, welcoming vibe with open fires, friendly and attentive service. At the rear is a delightful garden area which comes into its own over the summer and there is a relaxed dining room. The kitchen sticks to a tried-and-tested modern British take on pub food down to sharing boards and snacks. A typical meal could start with a light and flavour-packed mushroom parfait, sweet and sour onions and brioche, followed by a lovely piece of pan-fried halibut accompanied by plump St Austell Bay mussels, parsley and potatoes cooked in seaweed butter. A cheeky take on a Snickers bar turns up at the dessert stage - the precise square of aerated chocolate, roasted peanuts, nutty mousse and oozing caramel centre served with a scoop of ice cream. Each course displays strong technical skill and serious intent from the kitchen together with a carefully curated wine list that combines affordable quaffers alongside rare bottles.

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.
