This place trades on its reputation. The tables are so crowded that it is difficult to sit down. The food is overpriced and below average.

Amazing fresh crab, lovely staff and just very relaxed beautiful spot. Perfect day out of London, take the train to Farmcombe station and it is a 30 min walk to The Withies Inn. Highly recommend. Very good quality food!

My husband brought me here for lunch on my 70th birthday mid August. We had not dined here for many years. Food, service and the weather could not have been better. The service was first class and we remembered that the waiter was the same as when we were here the last time. A truly wonderful day with first class... More

We met up with six of our retired friends at The Wthies for lunch, it was a lovely summers day, we all had a great time and enjoyed our meal, the service was first class and the prices were resonable. I had not been to The Withies for at 15 yrs, and was not disapointed, we all look forward to... More

My husband and I visited this pub after a lovely walk from Shalford, via Loseley Park. There is a nice seating area outside and plenty of parking space. The food we ordered; duck and trout were delicious and worth every penny! The service was very good. Local ciders were great and we will be getting them from the local shops... More

Were recommended this place and were expecting much more. Food ok but presentation of food poor. Waiters need to be trained correctly and not to lean over others when serving food. Overpriced.

This rather quaint pub is wonderfully old fashioned, part of its charm for many. Dark wood tables and chairs, patterned dark red carpet, crochet table mats, single red candle and very low beams. The food is quite expensive for rather ordinary fare, options include beef, lamb, veal, fish - nothing too exciting but portions are hearty and the staff are... More

Unusual this as it's more than fifty years since I first came here and the management has only changed once and that was 35 years ago. Delightful setting especially when the weather is good enough to eat outside. This is pub food at its best and a good restaurant too. Generous portions from a varied menu, duck, chicken Kiev, steak... More

We visited here a few years ago and had a disappointing meal, tried it again for lunch today and were sadly still disappointed! The location is lovely and the pub and grounds are beautiful, however the food is basic! It is very overpriced for the quality, I had a cheese ploughmans and while I was pleased they had gluten free... More
