This is a cosy old village pub with loads of atmosphere. The menu is fairly standard but the food is done well, the beer is good and the service is friendly. Every village should have a pub like this.More

A traditional country pub serving traditional British food and using the best seasonal local (where possible) ingredients. Set in a stunning location in Surrey opposite St Michael's church which had a starring role in hit film, four weddings & a funeral!
