Every other year I visit my friends in Mickleham when I fly in from San Diego and make sure that each visit begins with a pint at The Running Horses. Since my first visit in 1991, we have had quite a few good times. This past June we had the best of times when The Running Horses was our inspiration for our weekend for drinking beer and singing Woodstock 1969 songs. Party on Martin and Kate Cox!!!!!
We stopped in for lunch at The Running Horses on a Saturday afternoon around 2:30. We were walking in the area and made it our stop after seeing it reviewed on Trip Advisor. It's a great pub with 9 tables inside the pub area and at least 12 picnic tables outside at the front of the pub but they can't be booked (only tables in the restaurant). It looks across to a lovely old church and the seating is comfortable. We were lucky enough to get a table but anyone that arrived afterwards was unable to. It's appears to be a very popular pub with regulars. The Restaurant was fairly empty, the menu is more formal and a little more expensive. My husband had bubble and squeak with a side of chunky chips, I had chicken from the restaurant menu and we each had 1.5 pints of…
We stayed for one night whilst attending a friend's wedding at the church across the road. We were in the Epsom room - twin beds with en suite shower room. The room looked small and a little disappointing on first sight, but it's a funny shape and is actually quite large, with a good-sized bathroom. The breakfast was brilliant. We didn't eat dinner there but the food looked very good and the dining room looked lovely. Nice friendly atmosphere. We booked through lastminute.com and the price was cheaper than advertised on the pub's website. We'd love to stay there again.
We stayed here for one night (Saturday) and when we checked in we found out we were not staying in the pub (there are 5 rooms there I think) but across the road in the Gatekeepers cottage...it was amazing! Basic but cute and very peacful and very private indeed. The pub gets very very busy for food - mainly it seemed in the bar whereas the restaurant looked pretty empty. We couldnt get a table so we walked to another pub down the road and actually ate in a small Italian restaurant near that. Breakfast at The Running Horses was superb..great quality and beautifully presented. All in all a fantastic escape from city life
We stayed here for one night in June and brief though it was,we enjoyed the experience.The only room left was a four Poster at £130 (no negotiation for a last minute booking);it was at the front of the hotel,very light and spacious and with a very comfortable bed. Downstairs,the decoration in the bar area was very traditional but nicely done and in keeping with architecture of the building.Quite buzzing with people(plenty of locals) suggests that the food must be of a reasonable standard although our breakfast was no better than average. Location is in a pretty village just off a busy main road and surprisingly quiet for that.Well positioned for South London,M25,Chessington World of Adventures,Gatwick Airport and some good walking nearby
