A modernised opened out pub rather smart and swishly decorated inside, the walls were hung with various modern artworks. Gastro Orientated as Graham indicates in the previous review, despite this it still felt comfortable as a drinking only venture. Four handpumps featuring Sharps Coaster, Harveys Sussex Best,Park Gallows and Surrey Hills Shere Drop at £2.05 for the half. Nice enough for a quick drink but I would struggle to stay for a session.

Very much a foodies' pub, with lots of bare wood, old church seats etc but with several good ales on, a couple from local breweries and a couple of national brands. I sampled the Autumn Amber from the Park brewery just up the road, and it was in very good condition (Cask Marque listing). One for eating at rather than a drinking session perhaps, but fine to stop by for a pint or two.

For a gastropub this one had on a decent range of ales, with Surrey Hills Ranmore, St Austell Tribute, Sharp's Doom Bar, Timothy Taylor Landlord, and Ascot Alligator all available. My half of Tribute came in a dimpled mug, and was at the top end of gastropub pricing at £2. I didn't bother to look fo a menu (they weren't on the tables) as I had no intention of eating here, but I have no doubt of the sort of food on offer judging by the overwhelming smell of fishy and other assorted upper class food wafting around the place.

The furnishings are essentially scrubbed wooden tables and hard little wooden chairs - mainly re-cycled school chairs by the look of them. I would say that that particular novelty has long worn off by now. They can't believe that people prefer to sit on too small hard wooden chairs can they? Anyway, enough of such moaning. The walls are painted a light pastel shade, have some photographs tastefully arranged on them, all with little labels under them to inform you of the subject. Nothing wrong with that of course. The floor's bare-boarded of course, and the bar counter's full of clutter - a large floral display in a vase (OK, not clutter I suppose), ice bucket, glasses, lemons & limes, etc. But there were a couple of stools at the bar so they must be happy for drinkers to sit there. As well as the main room in the original pub, additional seating is provided in a large conservatory on the right, plus a garden and picnic benches at the front of the pub.

This is nothing like the traditional pub it no doubt once was. It's now an everyday gastropub. On the plus side it has a decent range of ales, but the big minus for me is the uncomfortable chairs.
