Very old and highly-timbered pub with furnishings to suit. Has the feel (and smell!) of a good pub and plenty of corners to lurk with a good pint. Patio garden to rear. A good selection of beers included TT Landlord, TEA, Otter Bitter and Andwell Gold Muddle with condition good (Cask Marque accreditation). Sadly the landlord/lady were preparing to leave at the time of visit so changes are likely to be made.

Well described by Malden man below, food is a big thing here but the pub maintains a very nice pubby feel . Four beers on ,on my Monday morning visit, three of them being from local breweries in the form of Englands Glory and TEA from Hogs Back , Gold Muddler from Andwell and from farther afield Timothy Taylors Landlord which was in tip top condition. Nice pub and one to add to several other good pubs in Farnham.

Apparently dating from the 16th Century, this is a splendid old timber framed pub with low ceilings, blackened gnarled beams and posts, a real inglenook log fire and lots of exposed small gauge brickwork. Leaded windows, some stained glass, very old looking wooden flooring (although the original would have been flagged), some lower wood panelled walls. It looks and feels like the real deal although I would doubt that the entire place dates back that far. The Nelson theme is reflected in the décor, framed prints of fighting sail, sailors knots in an arrangement around a miniature ship's wheel, a model of a galleon on a window cill. A few shelves contain some very heavy looking ancient tomes. No poncey modern seating in here, solid regular tables in fours with plenty of room for food, drink and newspapers, some settles and an occasional sturdy wooden bench plus a couple of barrels on end for the vertical drinkers. There is a rear courtyard area plus a few front benches that catch the sun in the late afternoon.
Food is served, the specials chalkboard looked interesting, staples like cod with chips and mushies at £11 but also more adventurous offerings such as the fish stew, containing prawns, clams, mussels and squid in a tomato and fennel sauce for £13.
The beer is good here, four were on, two are regulars, Andwell Gold Muddler, Timothy Taylor Landlord, guests were Surrey Hills Shere Drop and Hogs Back TEA, both local brews as is the Andwell.
Possibly the pub of the day on my Farnham wander, good beer, lots of character and friendly service.
