Update really, due to circumstances we returned for another go Sunday late lunchtime. Food was OK, nothing special but not really expected to be. It was noticeable that service was very slow and haphazard, not just us, next table waited over an hour, and complained twice. Their rare, exacting & exotic order was bangers & mash, which says it all

Not rated this time, could really do better than this

Update. June 2014

Revisit, sunny Sunday lunchtime in mid June, much improved from last visit, no idea why, perhaps not as many customers? Anyway, food was fine, service was fine, beer was fine

Not the sort of review I like writing, called in mid September Sunday, around 1330, mainly for pub lunch, sad to say the food [scampi & chips] tasted of rancid oil, we left most of it. very polite & helpful waitress checked with kitchen and was assured oil was fresh that morning, but she did knock 30% off bill so basically paid for drinks only

May have been an off day, the next table complained about their pint, was replaced and clip removed, maybe they had bottom of barrel?

Staff remain polite & helpful, but I doubt we will be returning any time soon

As others have noted, fairly standard Chef & Brewer, but does have handpulls, and hot food, plus large car park

We find it handy on way home from RHS Wisley, usually stopping here after 1ish on Sunday afternoons

Staff we have encountered were pleasant and friendly

I have no doubt will revisit when in area
