You enter stepping down through a particularly low doorway with much needed signage about minding one's head and with an obviously aged wisteria climbing above. Immediately opposite is the bar, the ceiling inside this area is also low and has blackened beams. The pub itself dates from around 1830 however parts are formed from former cottages which of course would be older.
To the left is a side area with a much higher vaulted roof and lots of exposed brickwork, a dartboard in here is hidden inside a case and doesn't look to be readily usable.
To the other side the room splits, returning to the side where there is a 1970s style piano or continuing on into an area with a large dining table and a pair of booths. Both areas then link up at the rear where a more modern add-on houses a dining area with fake black ceiling beams and a couple of dressers/sideboards, one containing board games and a few toys. Doors lead out from here to a rear garden with some covered seating, a play area and an outdoor bottle bar.
Several fireplaces contain stacked logs, it is not clear if they get use in the winter but it would be a missed opportunity if they don't, flooring is mostly wooden boarding with black lacquering. There is an old clocking in machine by the front entrance.
Four on handpump, Courage Best and Directors, Pride and thankfully Surrey Hills Shere Drop which was ok.
I'm not entirely sure what this pub is trying to be, a country pub, a restaurant, a family friendly venue, possibly a bit of all three which doesn't always work, the not unpleasant ambience was however less than enhanced by the pop music playing.

A good sized country pub as mentioned before, reasonably lively on my visit early on a Thursday evening with a good mix of customers across several age groups. A nice pubby feel verging on the olde worldy with a mix of flagstone and wooden boarded floors throughout the main slightly meandering front bar,following round to a more dedicated dining area to the rear,this in turn leads out to a decent sized beer garden, firstly a raised decking area, down to a grassed section with a kids play area in the far corner.
On the bar beerwise were four pumps dispensing,Surrey Hills Shere Drop, Bath Gem as well as the more pedestrian Courage Best and Directors along with the normal keggy stuff. My pint of Shere Drop was clear and perfectly drinkable but a little lacking in its normal decent flavour so maybe it was toward the end of the barrel, other than that I enjoyed the pub more than I was expecting and didn't find it unwelcoming at all.

Decent sized country pub, comprising several rooms with some interesting features, and a beer patio and garden to the rear.

I fear that may have made me sound like an estate agent. My Sunday evening visit found four ale pumps, populated with the local Shere Drop (a good pint at £3.50), Directors, GK IPA, and the fourth with a reversed Doombar clip. The menu offered an uninteresting selection of mains from around £9.25 to 12 quid, and I didn’t eat here.

There were two other customers here at the time, one reading the paper and the other watching the TV. Service was okay, but like previous reviewer I didn’t find the pub had a welcoming feel to it. Signs inside the pub call it the ‘King Billy’, and promise quiz nights and live music nights. My overall impression is that this place tried to be a destination pub, but when that didn’t really work it started trying to be a local again. I hope they are busier the rest of the week.
