NIce little dessert stop

Having been previously for a meal we decided to pop out for dessert one night. The service was good and we tried several of their offerings via the little tasting platter.

A really friendly and comfortable pub. Have visited it before and had a good lunch and will definitely visit again. A lovely garden too if lucky enough to enjoy good weather

Decided to go here with the family for my Dads 50th back in March. We had booked a table previously so getting a table wasn't an issue, however when we first arrived nobody was about to speak to about where we were seated and we had to just kind of wander around until we found someone to speak to, however...

The inn on the lake is in the lovely town of godalming. The pub is beautifully decorated and has a lovely atmosphere. We went on a Tuesday night and there were a few other tables eating. We sat down and waited for our drinks order. Unfortunately it took a little time and even longer for the drinks to arrive. The... More

Came here on a Monday night, thinking it would be nice and quite and not busy. We where very wrong, it was packed. The restaurant is really understaffed and definitely needs attention. The decor and plating of the food looked superb, however, it took a good hour to at least get our mains. Food was average and wasn't the fault... More

I paid £95 for 1 night and whilst the room is really nice the hoteliers have failed with the most basic of items. Wi-Fi is rubbish, really important for me as I spend a lot of time on the road and need to be able to check my emails. It took an hour to get the WiFi to work and... More

Consistently good food and service. This evening was exceptionally busy due tot the weather, all of the tables were full, and the staff were working twice as hard to ensure everyone was catered for. Food quality was great, and the waiting staff were all friendly and helpful. Great to see personality shine through and none of that scripted none sense.... More

Regular visitors over the last few years for Sunday lunch and its a great place to relax for afew hours inside or outside without being rushed. This sunday it was packed with even the overflow car park quite full but still plenty of room. Sunday lunch decent quality although chicken was slightly dry but liked the rich slightly sweet gravy.... More
