It's a Beefeater, so you know what you ware going to get, Whitbread's bottom end chain in the same market as Toby Carvery or Hungry Horse. This one does clearly separate the bar area from the restaurant, and if you look hard you can still discern some original 30s features under many layers of ever crasser refurbishment. There are still signs of a multi room layout, much wood panelling is there under a thick patina of puke-coloured paint, even some of the furniture is in keeping. On a sunny afternoon you can enjoy the wonderful view but on a rainy winter's night, with just a few lone punters about there's not much going for it. On a race day the bars on the course are probably a better bet. Pride and Hobgoblin.

Built in 1934 as evidenced on a front pediment, this is nowadays a large food led pub under the Beefeater brand. There are panoramic views over Epsom Downs and the racecourse from the front conservatory and beer garden, I imagine you would need to arrive early to get a seat with a view of Tattenham Corner on a race day. Internally it is as you would expect from a chain eatery, rather bland, several areas, split level, the rear side section off the car park being more restaurant than pub and having leatherette booth seating not unlike an American diner from a 50s movie (or perhaps a Wimpy Bar).
Décor offers a view black and white pictures of horse racing, presumably Derby days, walls are painted in various modern shades, coffee, turquoise, some areas wood panelled but painted, probably the remaining original features.
Beer wise there are two handpumps, Pride (tasted like Pride should), Hobgoblin was reversed. They were mob handed behind the bar yet service was slow, a combination of getting in each others way and card paying customers getting food.
There are three pubs overlooking the racecourse, all flatter to deceive, of the three this is the most downmarket, however as they say, horses for courses.

A very large inter war years building now operating as a Beefeater pub/restaurant.Entering from the car park ,you are immediately greeted and shown to a table if eating.To the left of the entrance are a wide choice of seating booths,some for 4 others for 6 with the main body of the restaurant having a high vaulted wooden beamed ceiling where a previous floor has been removed.The rear section is raised up a few stairs.This space is functional , not as souless as ranks of traditional dining tables and reasonably spaceous.
If you turn right at the meeting desk you wind around the building to a lounge area which extends into a lower level conservatory and with a small bar tucked around another bend and situated on the back wall.This area affords fine views down the Derby course with the imposing Grandstands in the far distance.Outside the conservatory there is a lot of bench seating ,so this is a good vantage place to see horses tackle one of the most famous turns in flat racing.
Most punters are here to eat from the cheap and cheerful pub grub menu,with lots of value pricing ,haute cuisine it is not but my meal was perfectly acceptable.
No problem with customers coming in just for a drink and there are two handpumps with a rotating selection of national brands,on my trip London Pride and the seasonal Wychwood Bah Humbug,and like the food undistinguished but adequate.
Popular with families and a mature audience,this place delivers what's on the tin.I dont know their policy on race days,it could be mobbed or closed so better check in advanced.
I have used this pub over the years and will probably pop back in the future,with my expectations sufficiently lowered.
