About the Pub

The main thing to notice during the summer is the fantastic flower display from the numerous hanging baskets on the front of the pub. The pub itself is an attractive red brick building with ground-floor shallow bow-fronted windows. Inside, little if any original features survive and the effect is open plan with different styles of seating areas with many dining tables. There are two real fires. The emphasis is on food, and when this survey was done the hours were 12-3 and 6-8:30 Monday and Tuesday, 12-3 and 6-9 Wednesday and Thursday, 12-9:30 Friday and Saturday and 12-6 Sunday. Normally food is available all afternoon every day, but the hot weather meant that there had been temporary changes to the hours, so please check their web site to find the correct hours if you might be interested in eating. A bar menu operates on lunchtimes Monday to Saturday and features sandwiches, salads and lighter bites alongside main meals. From 6 only main meals are available, although a larger choice is offered. The home made steak pie is a big favourite. On Sundays a roast meal is sold, with a choice of three meats and a vegetarian option, as well as most of the dishes on the normal evening menu. The pub was acquired by the Reigate brewery of Mellersh & Neale from R&F Pagden of Epsom in 1931, and was rebuilt in 1932. It ended its brewery owned days under the Friary Meux badge of the Allied umbrella and has now become a freehouse, having previously been a Punch leasehold. Up to five beers are available. The two guest beers are usually from local breweries, such as Dorking and Hogs Back. KT20 is Morland Original and is sold as the house bitter. Children are welcome away from the bar. Dogs are also welcome and there is free WiFi.
