“linen on tables and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

My husband and I together with my parents come here often for wedding anniversaries and birthdays. Good home cooked food which my parents love as they aren't keen on fussy food. It is lovely to sit in the conservatory to have coffee and brandy after the meal. The atmosphre is cosy bot and the staff friendly. The service is excellent and the food is hot. The menu is choice is small but we have always found something to try so the balance is right. It is also nice to sit at a table with fresh linen. We'll be back again.

“Pleasant Surprise in Hogs Back Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Dropped in for lunch at this lovely restaurant. Food very substantial and delicious. Staff very efficient and friendly. Outlook from conservatory very picturesque - saw buzzards and lots of swifts. Will definitely return in the future and also recommend to friends.

“Old-fashioned perhaps, but good home-cooked food & friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

If you are looking for modern surroundings and a trendy menu then this restaurant is not for you. However, if you are looking for good, honest home-cooked meals then you will not be disappointed. Yes, the walls are very pink and the carpet is old-fashioned and the decor is dated but the welcome is warm and accommodating and the food is hot and unpretentious. Typical dishes are Steak Pie, Poached Salmon, Cottage Pie, Chicken Curry, Liver & Bacon, Fish in Parsley Sauce, Steaks, Sunday Roasts and so much more. Desserts on offer include Banoffee Pie, Apple Pie, Sponge Puds etc. Comfort food at its best!
The restaurant has been owned by the same family for about 40 years so to have survived in business that long they must be doing something right!

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

We have just come back from having a 3 course Sunday Lunch at the Squires Holt and am writing this review because I think some of the reviews below are a little harsh. This is our 2nd visit here and both times we have had good food and service. Yes it is a little dated, but quaint, yes the waitresses are middle aged but what is wrong with that, yes it is pink, but not something you notice immediately. I will admit when you first walk in, you may think you have strolled into an old peoples home, but we are all in our late 50's so fitted in well. Old people have to eat, and at least they know how to behave. The place is not over run with kids and all that come with them. You can have a decent conversation as there is no kids noise or loud music. The waitresses are very friendly and smiley. The 3 course menu was great along with the service. So all in all a pleasent time was had by all. Will visit again, however, have only been on a Sunday, so cannot comment on what it is like mid week.

“Give this place a try - a good value family run restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2011

I have eaten here a few times over the years & always had a great meal & experienced fast & friendly service.
It may not be a modern restaurant but what I would call “old school” with old school food, loads of home cooked favourites & delicious deserts again all the old favourites. My parents love it here, well worth a visit for the week day buffet, all freshly homemade.

Considering it is next to the busy A31 once inside you would never know as it has lovely far reaching views out the back overlooking the Surrey hills. Next time you’re wondering where to take the family give this place a try.
