It's our regular haunt anyway but we don't usually eat Sunday roast here as we were disappointed after a lunch for Mother's Day a couple of years ago. However, yesterday, lunch for seven was really good. An excellent vegetarian option for me. I usually have to ask for a roast lunch without the meat, but there was a roast for non meat eaters. Everybody else throughly enjoyed their lunch and the service was very attentive.
Excellent service. Interesting and varied menu. Delicious. Looking forward to another visit to taste some of the other dishes. Good value for money. Friendly ambience.
As ever, the food was excellent (the mixed game suet pudding was a particular favourite), the beer was beautifully kept and the atmosphere warm and welcoming.
Now our favourite local place to eat. Superb food in a great setting. Full marks to the relatively new owners for keeping the brilliant team of staff together, the pub would be so much less of a joy to visit without them.
We were a party of 7 who had drinks at lunch at The Surrey Oaks. Great friendly staff and a good selection of ales. Most of us really enjoyed our meals, but unfortunately one of our party had serious food poisoning for 24 hours after having the Pheasant canon, so it put a bit of a damper on the experience.
Had a warm welcome. Staff were very attentive. Food was excellent. There was a roaring fire which was very welcoming as it was an awful night but well worth the trip. Pub could do with a lick of paint but we went for the food which was more important. Would go again.
Food was great !! Staff are v.friendly and helpful we were there on a very busy Friday night and they Coped very very well we didn’t have to wait for our food even know they were rushed off their feet very professional
Lovely location and atmosphere with excellent food and service. We sat at a table by the log fire for a leisurely late Sunday lunch. A good range of beers and wine too.
The pub was really busy so we had to wait a little for our table. The food coming out looked delicious and wnd we were not disappointed when we tasted it.
We enjoyed the very pleasant pub for Sunday lunch. It was our first visit under this management and were not disappointed. Good food and a good range of quality drinks.
