We stayed here because my husband was having a driving experience at Dunsfold aerodrome which was about 20 minutes away.On arrival at The Squirrel we were met with a very friendly welcome. Our accommodation was clean and comfortable, but could probably do with little modernisation. We ate in the pub and the food was excellent. Possibly a little overpriced.

We turned up with no real expectations a received a warm welcome and a lovely table. The staff were very friendly and the menu looked really appealing. We were delighted when the... More

I'm eager to support local business, and as I live fairly near The Squirrel and really keen that it thrives. However, I hadn't been for a long time as our last visit was less than satisfactory. I'm pleased to say it's improved significantly. The service is good, and the food decent. A relative from abroad, thought his pie was fantastic!

18 of us visited on Christmas day - the food was fantastic , all served hot and extremely tasty. The service was very friendly and efficient, the staff went the extra the mile to cater for us ( for example we had young children who required different things from the set menu. ) We will certainly be returning. From Mandy's... More

Revisited the Squirrel Inn and was delighted to find Stuart in charge. We sat in the restaurant and was served by Tabatha. Excellent meal served with the right amount of attention and friendliness. We enjoyed the main course so much we both were tempted by the Winter Mess on the desert menu, Huge, one would have been enough. We managed... More

Having lived in the village for many years before marrying and moving away we met up for a family lunch here. I was pleasantly surprised at the changes that had been made in my years of absence. Although there was a very tempting menu we decided on sandwiches which were freshly made and very filling.

Decided to stop here for a pint when out walking with family - disappointing. The ale was off. I asked if they had been selling much ale that day and the lady behind the bar said they had not. I asked if they had any bottled ales and they didn't. It's great that a pub likes offering a good selection... More

Hadn't been to the Squirrel for some time but decided to try it recently for Sunday lunch. The food was very good we had a roast meal and these were well presented and the food was very good and there was enough if it. There were three real ales available and these were properly pored but some very pleasant staff... More
