A quite unusual modern feel to this old pub with a sort of shabby chic effect, but the general atmosphere and the food seemed to be drawing in the punters. Indeed I have never seen so many 30-somethings with children in buggies! As in the previous review, the Dorking Pilcrow Pale was extremely pleasant. One note: not only was there no Wifi evident but no mobile phone coverage either, which made contacting friends a little tricky but could be useful if trying to escape. Handy for M25 though.

The beer choice seems to have improved since previous reviewers' visits. When I visited on Monday they had on three fairly local beers - Hogsback TEA, Dorking Brewery Pilcrow Pale (£4.30 a pint), and Reunion Beardtongue. I have to say that a couple of pints of the Dorking Pale went down in no time on a hot and sunny July day. This is a food led pub, but which had quite a few recognisable pub grub dishes - baguettes were £7 - £8; burgers + chips were £10.95 upwards; and steak and kidney pudding was £12.95.

Inside there are several interconnected drinking and dining areas, with royal blue much in evidence. Most of the seating was laid for diners, with just a few seats in the bar area with no napkins or cutlery on them. There's a lot of seating at the front of the building, but this was a little too near to the busy main road for my liking, but there's a more secluded garden at the back behind the pub that was a bit nicer.

Food is the major player here, in what I guess is a destination pub for those wanting a decent pub meal. There's a large car park which must surely be essential to this pub's viability and which had quite a lot of cars in it by the time we left the pub after 2.00 PM on a Monday afternoon. And the pub itself must have had over 50 customers in it as well. It is a bit out of the way though, with the only public transport being the half-hourly 465 bus towards either Dorking or Kingston. But it's certainly worth the effort of visiting, as long as you're not expecting a traditional unspoilt locals' pub.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Star

Refurbished, food-led pub located in a rural area just on the London side of the Surrey county boundary. Seemingly much extended over the years, with a small bar / seating area by the entrance, a side room to the left and a much larger seating / dining area on the right-hand side. Just Doom Bar and Adnams Lighthouse available from the four handpumps.
