Lovely location, but not sure about vfm

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.

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.

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. Good ale, some very tasty food and a nice atmosphere. Not a cheap meal but then again the food was not your average pub grub and so... More

Beautiful gardens, well kept attractive surroundings. Bar staff in need of some serious training on pricing and hospitality a smile wouldn't have gone a miss. Was charged £4.20 for single vodka with splash of soda totally overpriced, when queried twice price suddenly went down with no explanation or apology.

Hi Michelle, unfortunately I think you have the wrong venue for this review as we don't have gardens nor have we hosted a wedding reception recently. Hope you manage to repost your review on the correct listing and of course visit us soon for a better experience. More

A group of us returned to the SL to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary (we had our reception here). What a fantastic time we all had. The welcome was so warm and genuine.

Decided to try the Stephen Langdon for the first time last night. I don't usually write reviews but have decided to for this because it was outstanding! Lovely old pub in the middle of the countryside - as we walked in we were greeted and welcomed. We arrived just after the kitchen had closed but the chef kindly agreed to... More

I've had the pleasure of visiting this excellent pub restaurant twice recently, once for a mid-week lunch and once for a Sunday lunch with the family. It's in such a lovely spot, you really feel completely removed from the usual hectic pace of life. We were given a warm welcome and the service was excellent. The food is really special,... More
