We arranged a meal for a business group. 14 people with an appropriate booking to support a group this large. When we arrived at half six, the car park was mostly empty. Maybe 4 to 6 other patrons. We were seated promptly and given menus. Drink service was prompt on the first round. Then we ordered starters and mains. Starters took over 45 minutes to arrive. The food was cold to warm. Nothing was hot. You would think the mains would follow right behind, but you would be wrong. Mains took an additional 45 minutes, at which point we almost up and left. 3 of the pies were cold in the center, and the fish in the fish and chips plate was overcooked to the point you had to hammer it apart to eat. Honestly, this is a lovely inn, but the food is below average and the service and attention to detail is missing. The drinks were fine if that is your intention...otherwise there are too many better locations in Horley to find. Our suggestion is to PASS on this.
