Quality if food and drinks brilliant. Whilst the new owners have kept the previous style the restaurant still needs some tlc. The only other point is that on the day of visit, the vegetarian menu options had been reduced ?
Good interesting menu, deliciously cooked and served with loads of attentive enthusiasm & care. It was our first supper here and we're definitely coming again.
Yet another superb meal at the Surrey Oaks. Refreshed menu was a delight and the new dishes were excellent. As always it is the Surrey Oaks team tbat put the icing on the cake. Mad busy, but never fail to be super helpful, smiley and fun. A great night.
Greeting as we arrived.. food hot and tasty. We had Sunday carvery which was lovely..my only criticism, not many green vegetables. Would recommend to anyone
We had a nice time at The Surrey Oaks, although it just felt a bit organised, one other table was being used and every other table had been reserved (either at 12/2pm. We had booked for Breakfast at 10.45). We were told we could sit on a table but had to be gone by 12, we had also asked for a high chair but nothing had been laid out ready for us. It took a while to serve of us and when we were served our food, there was no cutlery. It just wasn’t very slick and we could hear the chef saying to the waitress ‘what does this order say they want?’ - as they read out our order. I’m not sure the staff really care, there was no passion and when my son started babbling to the waitress, she just said what? Fine, she may not be baby friendly but it wouldn’t have hurt to just say hi.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Prompt service friendly staff but very loud Food was ok but seemed to have been rushed out rather than prepared with care Steak was in need of a good bashing ... good flavour but a bit hard to chew & the steak knives need sharpening ..... by no means a bad experience but could have been a great one
