Probably the best gastropub in the Woking/Guildford area. Lovely on a cold Saturday afternoon. We had delicious smoked haddock fish cakes and lovely veggie pie. Staff are friendly and efficient. Best pub lunch I’ve had in a long long time.

We were invited to come back and try again. Chalk and cheese! This was a very pleasant 2 hours with some very nice food and attentive staff. We felt under no pressure to hurry and spent a great meal out here. Recommended.

A beautiful country pub near the Wey Navigation in Sutton Green, equidistant between Woking and Guildford. Fantastic food with many fish and seafood specials. Superb ales, wines and an extensive gin menu.
