Great chips

Stopped for lunch here yesterday after a walk up to Leith Hill. Charming, friendly service & great food. I had the sweet potato cake with halloumi and salad and my husband had the pork pie with piccalilli - really tasty. I have to say the chips were the best chips I've had in years - big, fat... read more

Had Sunday lunch here and wow what a great place. Perfect location, Great selection of local ales and gin. Food is better than usual pub grub, and the date bread and butter pudding with custard was absolutely delicious. A few hiccups on the service such as forgetting to bring us cutlery and condiments but only teething problems which I trust... More

Visited with friends for an evening meal and were greeted by very friendly staff and dogs at this nice location. Lovely pub tucked away in the middle of the countryside with fantastic scenery. I had the Fish Pie, which was superb, with fresh tasty vegetables and my friends were equally pleased with their choices. Will definitely come back again.

Seven of us tried this pub again as it is under new management so we wanted to give it a try. The setting is pretty, but the overall experience was disappointing. Our drink orders were not prepared correctly and silly mistakes were made (though they were corrected when asked). We were charged excessively for two pints of tomato juice. They... More

Hi Owen - I have to say I am very surprised to read your comments as I do recall your party and when asked during the meal if everything was to your satisfaction we were assured you were all happy with your meals and nothing was raised that we could have dealt with while you were with us.

Stunning location tucked away from the outside world. Staff and dogs very friendly on arrival. Nice modern garden furniture outside and nice décor inside. Decent size tables and nicely laid out - including a linen napkin ! Quick service and a good selection of real ales. Recommend the chocolate pudding. Car park not huge so try and car share if...

We came as a party of four for a midweek lunch. The surrounding area/scenery is simply stunning around this pub. That is where the good points end! We were shown to our table, no sign of any menu after 20 minutes, so we went off & found our own. We ordered our food, I asked for Fish Pie, that was... More

Dear Elizabeth - thanks for taking the time to review your visit I am only very sorry that you didn't have the opportunity to air your concerns with me on the day. All your points are valid and arose because we were very short-staffed on the day and completely overwhelmed by the number of visitors for lunch midweek. Having only... More

As we continue the search for our favourite pub in the Surrey Hills, we decided to try this one for lunch whilst on a walk. Most staff were friendly enough and the food was nice. However, I do not think we got good value for money. We ordered two side portions of 'cheesy chips' to go with our sandwiches. When... More

Hi LoveDorking - thanks for your review and I'm glad you visited and enjoyed the beautiful setting of our pub & restaurant, but I'm sorry you felt you didn't get value for money on your visit. Our sandwiches use bread delivered daily by Chalk Hills Bakery and we try and ensure they are always chunky full of fresh produce and... More

The Stephan Langton is in a lovely setting and we had previously visited and enjoyed the pub. We had lunch here on Thursday lunchtime and were disappointed with the range of the menu and the meagre size/quality of the food presented to us. The pub seems to charge gourmet prices for very mediocre offerings.

Hi there - thanks for taking the time to review your visit though I'm sorry you felt it was disappointing. We deliberately have a small menu as everything is prepared fresh and to order in our kitchen, using produce delivered daily from local and independent producers. We hope you will return and try our autumn menu, launching September, and check... More

It used to be good, but the service and food is not up to the standard it was. The amount of time you have to wait is not acceptable.

I admit that it's a few weeks since we visited but the meal was excellent and so deserves a review. Birthday Sunday lunch for seven of us was served quickly by friendly staff.
