Best pub in Caterham. I really enjoyed my visit. The landlady is a friendly soul who took time to chat and make sure all was well. Nice and cozy inside but some good spaces outdoors when the weather is good. Lots of good Covid 19...precautions inside and out. Felt very safe, which is saying something for me as I am very cautious. Asahi and Peroni on tap plus fullers beers, job done!More

My wife and I came in here for a few Friday night drinks before going to the Indian restaurant nearby. It was busy when we arrived at around 6.45pm, which was a good sign. Before we ordered our drinks, we looked around to see where...we could find somewhere to sit. All was fine until we entered the room at the back (where the darts board is) and were immediately greeted by hostile stares from a group of men sitting at the back of the room. It was like something out of a sinister film; clearly this was an area for regulars only and they didn’t take kindly to us. Understandably, we elected not to sit there and instead took the one free table in the adjacent room, ordered our first drink and got on with our evening. All was well until about an hour later when our conversation was rudely interrupted by the sudden arrival at our table of a man (tall, dark haired,in his late 30s/early 40s, wearing work trousers with holster pockets), who leant over my wife and asked her aggressively “have you got a problem with my girlfriend? She says you have looked at her twice in a snobby way”. Both she and I informed the guy that we had no idea what he was talking about (which is true). The man said “well she doesn’t lie”, before returning to join his group in the room at the back. Thereafter, several of his mates came in to the room to have a look at us, presumably checking that 15 or so blokes had the ability to overcome a man and woman, both in their 50s, if it came to it. Understandably, my wife and I were both shocked and stunned at such behaviour and we decided to leave immediately. For the avoidance of doubt, we are not snobs, we did nothing to offend anyone and we regularly visit pubs of varying shapes and sizes, both locally and in other areas of the country. We remain gobsmacked that establishments like this one actually exist in this day and age and that Fullers want anything to do with it. Shameful.More

Almost 40 years ago, I met my husband when I was working behind the bar in this pub, and we held our wedding reception there 10 weeks later. On a recent family visit, we just had to spend an evening here: the first time I'd...been back for decades. But the pub had the same lovely, warm, friendly atmosphere that it did all those years ago, and I immediately felt totally at home. How many pubs can you say that about these days? There were eight of us in our party, plus one very fluffy Samoyed dog, who was immediately made to feel welcome (even though it was a very busy Saturday night). hopefully, we won't leave it so long before we visit again!More

A group of a dozen of us were very well looked after on Sunday. We had booked the function room for lunch and our orders were taken quickly and food served up very promptly. The pies we had were delicious (chicken, ham and leek; steak...and Stilton) and the side orders of fries were very generous. Nothing fancy, but lovely tasty food, great value for money and the staff were very helpful and accommodating to all our requests. Would definitely recommend.More

We came here yesterday for lunch having looked up reviews of where to go for a quick lunch. We parked in the car park and walked into the pub which seemed quite quiet so we were a little nervous that we had got it wrong....We ordered our drinks and food and sat down. The food came quite quickly and it was delicious. The roast was a massive portion, all piping hot and perfect. The staff were all friendly and we went away very happy. I would thoroughly recommend the pub. Great discovery.More

Although the beer seems a little more expensive than others in the area, it is worth every penny.The staff and particularly the Manageress, seems to welcome all visitors as if they are regulars. It is always busy with dart teams enjoying their games and the...free food provided for them. Also a welcome log fire is burning in the winter. Try it.More
