Moby Duck left this review about The Spotted Dog

A fairly basic straight forward pub, L shaped with varios seating, some set for casual dining.
Three pumps with Doombar,Hogsback TEA and Otter Poppy Otter available. Although the pub is rather average the beer garden is particularly impressive ,well planted and spacious accessed via a decked outside terraced area.

Quinno _ left this review about The Spotted Dog

A fairly nondescript L shaped pub that nonetheless boasts a large and impressive grassed beer garden with nice views of the Surrey Hills. The left area is the nicest, with some cosy touches and a dart board whilst the right is more of a public bar style area with TV sports. External pool room to rear. Selection of newspapers available. Three ales, Wychwood Piledriver (spluttered and died), Pride and a lacklustre Doom Bar. Everything seemed a bit haphazard (exemplified by the tables not being cleared of what looked like Ollie Reed’s last drinking session). There’s enough here to make this a good pub but my visit didn’t overly inspire.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Spotted Dog

This pub is a bit of an odd mixture of traditional and modern, both inside and out. For example, contrast the old-fashioned bay windows with the cantilever pub sign design which would look more at home above the door of a gastro pub. Inside, the formerly separate bars have been opened out to form a 'L'-shaped layout, with a single step dividing the two parts. The interior has been heaviliy refurbished at some stage, with the furniture and decor being quite light in colour. It also has a modern decking terrace at the back, with a nice view of the Surrey hills above the town roofs and some distinctly old-fashioned gents toilets. Darts board. Three real ales on handpump - Pride, Bombardier and a decent pint of Courage Best (£3.20). Overall, I thought that the atmosphere had significantly improved since my previous visit in 2008 when I found it slightly characterless.
