Going for a walk on Epsom downs and wanted to stop for lunch, my husband and I came across this Public House. We were made to feel very welcome and although we only wanted a hot drink and soup it was no trouble at all to the staff. Said staff were very pleasant and helpful would recommend this place to...

My daughter ordered Chicken, well... More

Came to the Derby arms for a lunch with family, and arrived to be seated awfully slowly by a less than attentive as they out it "Host". Credit where credits due, the waitress we had was very nice, although sadly couldn't make up for the poor food. We ordered two roast chickens, well safe to say they aren't what the... More

Stopped for a beer, and wanted to stay! Great pub with great decor, food smelt amazing! Didn't eat there regrettably, as down here on training, but would love to return! Staff friendly and knowledgeable!
