A well known country pub with its own micro-brewery, in a nice location at the foot of Leith Hill. Taken over by new owners (about a year ago?). Redesigned, now predominantly dining tables. Nothing fancy, just wooden tables with wooden chairs. Still brewing its own two beers, Crooked Furrow and one now known as Smiler's Happiness, named after a popular... More

This pub is ideally situated on the way to Leith Hill and was very popular with walkers and cyclists, with a lovely garden. Unfortunately the new owners are turning it into a gastro pub.We called in at Sunday lunchtime looking for a sandwich to be told that they only serve full lunches on Sundays. Then we found the beer garden... More

Unfortunately, we did turn up on a day that everything went wrong.....This is new ownership, newly refurbished pub in a lovely village. Their food was very well presented, but unfortunately some areas do have a few teething problems still. I believe everything will work out in the end for the new management.....Good Luck in your new adventure. Worth a visit

We were a party of 6 and all had different main courses. The roast lamb and beef merits a mention as they were perfectly fine pub fare. The Yorkshire puds were enormous and the shared veg portions were equally tasty. The service was good and the waitresses were friendly and helpful and they offered extra veg & gravy. The dogs...

Stopped here for lunch when two thirds of the way around a strenuous circular walk on a fiercely hot day. Any kind of pub would have been welcome, but this exceeded any reasonable expectation. Smoked salmon came with stunning fig and walnut bread and the cheese board was interesting and beautifully presented. Service was friendly and very attentive. All we... More

Had a wicked sunday lunch here after hearing about the refurbishment. They were very welcoming to us and our dog, great food and plenty of it! The service was great, fast but not to fast - Friendly but not fussy. Good wine too!

Stopped hear during a walk around Leith hill. Well decorated (recently re-done) and friendly service. Enjoyed some gorgeous freshly made sandwiches, ham & cheese and cooked salmon with lemon mayonnaise. This is also a dog friendly pub, there's even dog biscuits in a jar on the bar! I'm sure we'll make a return visit.

Past through Coldharbour on a walk through the Surrey hills. A sign welcoming walkers made us stop for a drink. Seating available indoors and outdoors. Friendly efficient service. Enjoyed our drinks and went on our way. Will try the food another time.
