Decided to try this as an alternative to our usual Thai in Epsom. One other occupied table in the restaurant on a Sunday should have told us a few things. Decided on the Thai menu as opposed to roast. Ordered a platter starter, very expensive for eight items and very bland tasting. Green curry very runny and pad Thai gloopy... More

Hi, I am sorry we didn't measure up in your visit. I am not sure what happened with your bill but there appears to be some confusion and I ask you to get in touch with me directly at info@authenticpubco.uk The old Queen Adelaide did run a lunch club deal which was £7.95 for a meal, rice and drink.

Sunshine in Epsom's most splendid beer garden, great Thai food and genuinely friendly, knowledgeable staff a bonus and a real treat! The well landscaped beer garden gives an inclusive feel and creates a friendly atmosphere whilst the ideally sized, circular tables allow for easy conversation in larger groups; like sociable little party islands. Never too far from the bar with... More

What can i say.... This place is beautiful yet now matter how many times each year they are bought out and refurbished the service or the food is appalling. In 2014 they refurbished and it looked amazing with a nice pub garden and lovely the outside! The restaurant as always had no one in it even on a saturday night!... More

Hi, I obviously didn't see the Thai fishcakes you were served so its hard to comment but Thai fish cakes are a little different to fish cakes you and i are used to. They are in fact more of a pancake texture which you mentioned in your review. I am sorry if you didn't enjoy them but by the sound... More

Had an appalling experience from low- life 'friends of the manager' . Was subjected to a racist attack while trying to enjoy a drink . Totally disgusted by their behaviour. Needless to say am not recommending this place to anyone.

Hi, I am sorry you feel that way, I did speak to the staff working and reviewed the cctv as this is a very serious comment and clearly there is no room for racist behaviour particularly as half the team come from different countries. As I understand a table next to you were discussing the Greek crisis and you took... More

Went to the Kings arms Epsom ( king and dragon) on Saturday and was pleasantly surprised that their new outdoor bar was open and not only does it have draught lager on tap as well as spirits bottle beers and wines but it also does a variety of smoothies.

Just eaten here tonight. The food is excellent but there was 1 young girl behind the bar rushed off her feet and a poor 16 year old boy on his own in the restaurant on only his 2nd night on the job, seating people taking orders, serving meals and bringing bills. He was so busy running around while people were... More

Hi, Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately the third member of staff didn't turn up and there was nobody to replace them as it was so last minute. On top of that we had an exceptionally busy night. We are very new and as such you have a mixture of very busy nights and quiet nights when members of the... More

Used to use a lot when the old new team took over, but stayed away as it had "gone Thai". Gave it a shot and was most impressed. Food very good & fresh with an authenticity lacking in many "and Dragons". Friendly folk behind the bar and my dog is welcome. What's to dislike!

I hadn't visited the pub before the Thai menu was introduced, but definitely glad I've gone now! Tasty, fresh Thai food, which was not at all greasy. Great service from our waitress. The decor is a bit odd, but does that really matter? We had one dish that was marked as 2 chillis and wasn't spicy, so do ask for... More

have frequently eaten here before only to find that they have now converted It to a Thai restaurant. Walls are adorned with tacky wood carvings and the good old English menu has been reduced to cater for the Thai food. I had a roast and the food is still of the good quality they have served before, just a pity... More
