About the Pub

On the main road into Godalming on the corner of Hare Lane, this pub has been in operation for some 300 years and is renowned for its live music. In 2014 the pub underwent a considerable refurbishment, happily without detriment to its character. It remains one large bar with distinct areas - the bar itself and a lounge-type area which leads to the part where musicians usually perform. Doors at the back lead to a patio area with a large awning to protect smokers, thence to a good-sized garden which is in the process of refurbishment as part of the improvement works. The four hand pumps supply three beers from Shepherd Neame, the fourth being reserved for a guest beer. A glass panel exposes the workings of the hand pumps. Well-behaved dogs are welcome inside, as are families (until 7.00 p.m.). Food hours are 12-3 daily with roasts being served on Sundays. A long-standing feature of the Three Lions is live music, with a band or soloist/duet performing each Friday and Saturday. There are also regular open mic sessions. A quiz is held each Wednesday. TV is limited to a single screen showing programmes on terrestrial channels. There is wheelchair access from the street, but a small step to reach the toilets and no dedicated disabled WC.

Historic Interest

There has been a pub on this site for 300 years & most of the building is at least as old as that. On the main road into Godalming on the corner of Hare Lane, this pub has been in operation for some 300 years, with records going back to at least 1723. In 1891 it passed to Lascelles Tickner of Guildford, which was taken over by Friary, Holroyd and Healy’s (also of Guildford) in the 1920’s. Via further mergers ownership passed to Ind Coope, thence to Allied Lyons and Carlsberg Tetley. However a few years ago it was acquired by Shepherd Neame of Faversham. A more detailed history can be found on the website.
