Good for light lunch

We arrived on a wet May day, but the real fire in the lounge was very welcoming. Obviously a popular spot for local Mothers with babies to lunch. As we did not eat in restaurant part we cannot comment on service there, but staff we dealt with were friendly and efficient. The food was good and we... read more

My lady and I had lunch here last year whilst visiting family in Godalming and it was lovely. Great menu, good service and generally good vibe. Fast forward to this last weekend almost a year later since our first visit and God knows what's happened. The service, whilst the staff are very polite and friendly, is frightfully poor. We were...

I visited Inn on the lake on my birthday and I really enjoyed my food, the staff serving us was very polite. Food took a little long to arrive, but I'm sure it would happen anywhere Saturday night.

I came for a friends wake so and stayed in the inn. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was good and the menu varied. I didn't rate the place 5 star as the staff mixed up tabs but resolved the issue quickly. Also in the morning the shower was warm but not hot as I prefer. However... More

It took an hour for our mains to come, again part the order didn't arrive. No one came to talk to us from drinks arriving to mains... More

A varied and balanced menu which should suit most tastes. Friendly accomodating waiter but the service would have benefited from additional staff. The food generally was excellent although one of the party... More
