About the Pub

An impressive 16th-century country pub, very popular with walkers and cyclists, which takes you back in time and is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Hambledon set against the backdrop of the Surrey Hills surrounded by open fields, grazing horses and a village green in a designated Area of Outstanding Beauty. This free house pub has been owned since May 2017 by Peter & Lana De Savary who live just 2 miles away. The pub was completely refurbished and renovated by the De Savary’s during 2017 when an additional 3 bedrooms have been added (10 available now) however the original character of this classic English pub, both internally and externally, has been retained and enhanced. A good selection of four cask ales is available two of which are sourced from local breweries. As you enter the main bar during winter you are welcomed by a roaring log fire in the large Inglenook fireplace. The food is all sourced locally, apart from fish, from within 15 miles of the pub and there is a sign above the bar encouraging customers to bring in and sell their locally grown, locally caught or locally shot produce to the pub so that this fresh local produce can also feature on the pub’s menu. Glamping in a separate fenced off field next to the large car park across the road from the pub is now available utilising five shepherd huts which only became available from February 2019. The open field at the rear of the pub at the bottom of the garden is home to the pub’s 11 llamas, two baby llamas were born in April 2019. Walking with the llamas around the local countryside can be arranged via the pub. There is a quiz on the second Tuesday every month and a jazz jam session on the second Sunday every month. Sitting proudly on the wall surrounded by the names of all the previous landlords is a framed CAMRA SHB Branch Special Award certificate for 10 consecutive years (2010 -2019) in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide.
