What a huge dissapointment! Uncosy dirty room. Bad bathroom. It was ment for disabled people, but I'm not disabled. The sink was very low. I had to sit on my knees to brush my teeth. They promised to refund me an certain amount, as I left after the first night ( I booked four nights) but they never did.

Had our Christmas Do there for 30 people. Food was very good and staff were fantastic. The meals were served at the same time, so no one was waiting for the rest to start eating. Everyone in the party was very satisfied. Thank you Rowbarge !!

Needed a room for a one night stay before an early morning interview. Decided on the Rowbarge as hotels near by were much more expensive. On arrival I found all the staff I spoke to really friendly and welcoming, the room was large for the price of £65 and although a little tired it was definitely value for money. Bed...

We needed to find somewhere to hold a wake after a funeral at Woking Crematorium. So we came here for lunch a week or so ago, which we thoroughly enjoyed. More than just typical pub food. As a result we asked if they could cater for our relatives and friends after my mother-in-law's funeral at the nearby crematorium. We chose...

Nice food. We both had the lamb shanks. Price of food was about right for the quality. Nice staff and location. Ceiling and corners of rooms could do with a clean to get rid of the cobwebs and spiders.

Stayed on business, great atmosphere from staff, they have a family feel and are really friendly and helpful. Felt very welcome. Not the first time we've eaten here, highly recommend the beef stroganoff and the confit duck salad, delicious! Hotel is not 5 star so don't expect room service but for a good night's sleep it is clean and comfortable.

Myself and my son stayed for one night on the 6th Oct 2016. Upon arrival we were met by a male member of staff who neither said, hello, welcome or pleased to see you, did you have a good journey, nothing at all.

We stayed here because we were attending a family function nearby. The accommodation is clean, adequate and functional. The bed was comfortable. The shower room was okay, but just shower gel provided. Overall okay - could do with a little TLC, i.e. there were stains on the carpet. The pub itself is friendly and welcoming and stayed open for drinks...
