This lovely old pub, ideally situated and in its own style has been a favourite 'goto' for many years (tho not that frequently over the last few) I suggested we try it for Sunday lunch recently. Arriving just before 14.00 we sat down in expectation,...More

We visited this friendly pub twice after a walk on Reigate heath nearby. It is a traditional pub which has not been spoilt by being 'modernised'. It was full of walkers and dogs and had lots of tables both inside and outside. The food was...More
