Being a keen fisherman who loves the river Mole I had passed by this excellent pub without knowing for years just how good it was. Tucked just off the main road to Dorking near Box Hill it certainly pleased our party of 7 celebrating a birthday.
Lots of interesting choices and specials - I had devilled kidneys to start and they were as good as I had ever eaten - not being overcooked at all. The Stilton parfait was an interesting starter and something that could also have been a dessert. Main courses included a great cod dish with a bit of salt cod brandade and a nice seafood risotto. I had a burger after seeing someone tuck into one in the bar and it did not disappoint - moist and flavourful and large- with great french fries.
We did not try dessert as the pub had made a chocolate cake for us . Oh yes - I forgot the sides- lovely asparagus - great value for large stems and so many I had to take a doogy bag home.
Great service from freindly waitresses too..
- 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
