We spent a very comfortable night staying in one of the cottages owned by the "Running Horses" Pub/Hotel; it was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Pub/Hotel has won awards for its food and, having eaten supper and breakfast here, we can see why; the food was very tasty with generous portions and of a high standard.
Both Julia and I are runners and we found a footpath up to Box Hill; the views have to be seen to be believed, they are stunning. If you are a runner or love walking you will not be disappointed.
A small tip; speak to Nelson, the breakfast waiter, about running and walking routes; he is a hive of information and a very lovely man. We thoroughly enjoyed his company.
A big thank you to all the staff, especially Nelson.
- 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
