Nick Davies left this review about Ramblers Rest

Little has changed and it remains one of M&B's unbranded pretend gastropubs majoring on Brake's horsemeat lasagne. A recent visit produced a nice pint of Betty Stoggs (M&B must have bought a tanker load, it seems to have suddenly materialized in all their pubs in the south east) and the opportunity to grumpily decline a bucket sized portion of peanuts thanks to M&B's policy of not selling them in packets. You're better off carrying on to the Hungry Horse down the road. That's rubbish too but at least they don't try to pretend otherwise.

January 2010

Another pub which given the location and age of the building should be a rural classic. Sadly repeated refurbishments by Whitbread and now M&B have lobotomised it totally and left a characterless chain restaurant with not an ounce of pubbiness remaining.

It remains very popular with Croydon middle managers taking their in-laws out in the company car for Sunday lunch but then you are on this website looking for a pub, not that: there are two far superior alternatives within a couple of miles of here.
