We go to The Withies when we want to feel 'comforted'. It is a classic and beautiful old Inn which has kept its charm and personality both inside and out. The service is warm, friendly and professional and always make us feel welcome. On this occasion we just had sandwiches and Withies Crispies from the Bar Menu but everything was... More

We had lunch here, a big one.!! There was a party in and a funeral party in another room but the service was good and timely. The food was hot and plentiful. Vegetables were extra which I find hard to justify when the main dish is £15 + and we could only have done with one dish between 2 (£8).... More

So disappointing. £150 for four main courses and one house red. The scallops were boringly cooked, white blobs instead of delicious morsels ; duck could have come out of a tin and the beef was dry. The friends we went with had been going there for years, and seemed delighted to suggest it was 60s, 70s retro. I thought it... More

We recently held a small reception (for about 20 -30 people - and more could also have been catered for) at the Withies Inn after my grandmother's funeral. The initial booking and discussions were most sensitively handled by Hugh (which was much appreciated at a very difficult time during the festive season). On the day our needs were perfectly accommodated... More

One of the things you must do if you live in or go walking near south west Guildford is to stop at The Withies for lunch. It is a lovely pub restaurant in an ancient building, in a perfect location not far west of Loseley Manor. So that's what we did, the four of us setting out from Guildford, walking... More

A welcome stop for lunch. The hot salt beef sandwich with side salad garnish was very generous and restored the soul after 3 hours of motorway traffic jam. The half pint of Adnams was delicious. The bar and restaurant menus looked wonderful and I am sorry I could not stay longer to sample more! Would definitely return.

Had a very enjoyable lunch on a busy Sunday. We were a party of 10 and all enjoyed the splendid roast. We would have liked pudding but were just too full. This was a pre-Christmas treat. If it were any other Sunday it would have been a little pricy compared with other pubs, but this is such a nice venue... More

the service was slow - tables very close together but with a great bar area and open fire. Also a well tended garden. The food was goodish but did not justify the price.

We spent a lovely long lunchtime this afternoon having a great meal, great wines and a really special pavlova made for us by the manageress, with candles and happy birthday sung! Very relaxing and great food. Quite reasonable prices for the quality. Well worth a visit, but book well in advance!

We have had many a meal here and the food and Servises are fantastic beautiful grounds wonderful in the winter with the open fires, service is always friendly but I do feel a bit out of place as because it's more upper class than I am so that's my own insecurities
