This pub had been recommended us ,but unfortunately it didn’t deliver. Firstly, I’d question its status as a pub:more a winebar/bistro without the charm. We were welcomed with all the effusive enthusiasm of the salesman eager to close that deal, and shown to our rickety, sticky table. Service was quick, but they were hardly busy for a Saturday night-a few other parties and a braying horde of Surrey’s finest who were waiting to dine hugger mugger on burgers in a dining area the opposite side of the pub.
The food was not marvellous-gastro prices and gastro portions, but not fine dining quality. My pie was the safest and best option, the fish ‘n’ chips were OK, but the burgers were over priced and unfinished by our teenagers, which says a lot. As soon as we had finished the previously welcoming staff gave us the evil eye, presumably to clear our table for the braying crowd. Naturally we sat and chatted to our friends as we had all travelled a fair distance that evening. Not a “good night” as we left.
On the other hand, the beer was good and well kept;Triple fff’s Moondance and Hogs Back TEA. I didn’t try the Timothy Taylor’s Landlord.Of course the beer should have been good as it calls itself a pub! Plenty of fizz for those of that persuasion. As it was dark and a foul night I can’t comment on the much vaunted gardens. We won’t be back.

I'm very biased as I worked at The Spotted Cow for just under a year, but I found the place magical. It's in the middle of a forest, adjoining a river, has great local, good beer and better food. You can't ask for much more in a country pub.
