“A great British Pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We have been many times to the Donkey and our visit on saturday night was another great meal. We went for a birthday meal with 4 adults and 2 children and the whole evening was wonderful. The food as always was wonderfully prepared and went down well. I tried a local cider which slipped down a treat. They even gave our two girls a carrot each to feed the donkeys outside!

“Terrific - as usual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

my wife and I had dinner at the Donkey last night, and the service, the food, the drinks were as usual excellent. We have eaten here on a number of occasions, and we have never been disappointed.

“Good food and a real donkey too.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

The Donkey is a great little pub near Elstead, Guildford. There is a bar and a separate restaurant area both quite small. They also have a garden and there is a stable with two donkeys. Four of us went and the food was lovely. It is freshly cooked and there was also a large choice of home made desserts. Would definitely recommend a visit. Cost with wine worked out around £28 a head.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

What a fantastic pub ... we were allowed to park in the car park whilst we embarked upon a 2 hour circular walk and then came back to eat (we had booked). The service was very attentive, drinks orders taken soon after sitting down. There was a good menu but opted for the roast lunch and were not disappointed. The best pub roast we have eaten. Thank you.

“Totally unexpected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

From the outside The Donkey looks like a lovely small cosy English Pub and even inside its nothing grand, but wait till you sit down.

The staff were more than attentive and very lovely.

Now the food, Fantastic, well cooked, well proportioned, everything about it was delicious. If I had enough room I could have happily eaten it all again.

It's certainly a place we're definitely coming back to.
