Graham Coombs left this review about The William Garland

A surprisingly pleasant pub, given a 'traditional' makeover by Greene King in 2017 which has now settled in quite nicely. The J-shaped bar has lots of wood panelling and some yellowish lantern light fittings, with reasonable furniture apart from the obligatory high tables. The main part extending back is mainly tabled for eating, while there are a few sports TVs and the rarity nowadays of a pinball machine, and in full working order too. Fresh flowers on tables don't always work but add to the effect here. There is also a garden at the rear. Beers are from the Greene King range with guests, which on this visit included an extremely drinkable Goldmark Liquid Gold, not forgetting a boxed cider as well. Friendly and very helpful bar staff earn an extra point.

Renamed after a former local minister and councillor, the pub has undergone a modern and rather bland fit out, the uniformed staff adding to the corporate and impersonal feel. Effectively a J shape, there is a part boarded and part parquet floor, mixed seating including the inevitable high tables, a side wall has a few tributes to Lotus cars and presumably Caterham too with posters, a steering wheel and front lights on display. Probably the only items of interest in the pub. There is a rather large garden to the rear.
A GK pub with IPA and Abbot on, one reversed but they also had Wimbledon Copper Leaf Ale on. It took an age to get served with one barmaid serving at her own pace and two others putting glasses and bottles on shelves. Various screens were showing the Saturday football show with rolling scores. The longer side was dressed for someone's birthday party, once a lady began doing a soundcheck, singing snippets as blue lights began to flash I decided it was time to leave.

A largish single roomed, high street Greene King Pub.Four Hand pumps on the bar, Greene King IPA, Abbot (clip turned) and two guests both from Hammerpot, Brighton Belle and Choc Wreck Porter,not a favorite brewery of mine though you could argue better than Greene King and the Brighton Belle was in decent condition. There is a 10% CAMRA discount. It's a typical pub of its type, basic pub grub menu,sports TV etc, nothing special but OK.
