I was invited by some friends/colleagues for a pleasant evening meal after a long day. The setting of this restaurant and its bar is magnificent.
Apparently they had a flood in their dry store the night before so more than half the menu was not available (including some dishes with only fresh food in them!). Only the tastiest (to my mind) dishes we not available BUT they did have an extra dish of a chateaubriande at £60.00!!
The Macon wine had been allowed to get hot and was then served super chilled.
I did enjoy my dessert and the company that I was with was very pleasant. Had this not been the case, I suspect that my review would be much worse.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Running Horses is a perfect country inn at the heart of picturesque Mickleham village in the Surrey hills. Step inside and you’ll discover one of the most charming places to eat and stay in Surrey. Dating back to the 16th century, it was once a coaching house. Back in those days, the inn’s clientele provided rich pickings for highwaymen. Thankfully, things are a little more peaceful these days, but some traditions live on. You’ll still find wonderful home-cooked British food, made with the freshest ingredients, accompanied by a wine list to compare with the top restaurants. The Running Horses has been family owned and run for the last fifteen years. And because we’re not part of a chain, the inn is full of character and individual touches. You’re guaranteed a warm welcome from the moment you enter the cosy bar with its roaring log fire. ... more less
