Nice enough little pub in a picturesque location with a stream running between the pub and the car park. Wasn't quite sure about the bar staff. They gave the impression of being condescending. They do have a few real ales - Tillingbourne Falls Gold, Brunning & Price Original Bitter, Cottage Golden Arrow & Hepworth Sussex. The pub was also only 2 of 11 in the area that had a real cider - Westons Old Rosie. Worth a try.

We live close to one of Brunning and Price's other pubs in Milford so were keen to see what the one in Gomshall was like. We were not disppointred. The beer choice was a little less with 4 on, including the wonderful Tillingbourne. We had a bite to eat in the bar area and all in all a very pleasurable experience. The building is a maze of passages and well worth a wander.

Unlike other local houses this was happily open all day, life would not have been worth living after a two-mile trek in a biblical deluge if the doors had been locked and the lights out. Although mainly an eating establishment the staff were relaxed enough to allow drinking in the restaurant section (Dorking ale) and when the hunger finally took hold the food was of good quality. The small lad was very impressed with the mill feature, but had to be restrained from attempting to surf from one side to the other like a human pooh stick; that's the Surrey Hills, it's easy to become light-headed..

Had a pretty good Xmas lunch here. The beer is good, if expensive. Nice place too.

Went here last Sunday and have to agree with several recent comments, that it is an improvement over the old regime. Had a lovely pint of Dorking Red India. Probably expensive but didn't care as my brothers -in-law were paying! Some other interesting-looking ales were on the bar but I didn't have time to try them.

Went for an early Mother's Day meal at lunchtime on Saturday 2nd April 2011. Much improved from the BluBeckers years, with sandwiches & ploughmans now added to the menu. All four pumps were on, dispensing Hogs Back 'Spring Ale', Andwell 'Spring Twist', W J King 'Old Ale' & their own Brunning & Price 'Original Bitter'. I decide to try all four - they were all in tip top condition!!

Nice to see differant real ales than other outlets sell. Do something for the non drinkers please. £2.65 for a J2O. Food looked good, we were killing time so called in for a pint. Someone normally has to drive why charge so much when other pubs keep these prices down. Not busy, Dirty tables (food on then), 3 staff. 6 customers. No excuse as early evening. Will not make a special trip out that way, but will use if passing.

It's not often that a restaurant (this was formerly a Bluebecker's Eating House) gets converted back into a pub, but that's what's happened here - and we love it. This is a fabulously atmospheric place for a meal in one of the dining areas nestled around the old mill, or just a drink by the fire in the cosy bar area.

When we visited on a Sunday evening, all four pumps were in action, dispensing Dark Star Pale Ale, Hammerpot Woodcote, Rebellion Mutiny and Hop Back Odyssey. The menu is fairly pricey. We didn't eat on this occasion, but the meals we saw looked quite appetising.

Been to Gomshall Mill a couple of times and have enjoyed everytime. The menu is definitly an improvement to microwave/boil in a bag bluebeckers and the choice of the real ales are always good. Last time i went they had hophead, Rebellion, arundal gold and Horsham best. All four pumps were on.The Plus side the music gone. Down point was fire needed attention as it was a little chilly.

Called here yesterday at lunchtime.Whilst it may serve real ale (and I have no complaint about the London Pride) it certainly isn't a pub despite the change of identity-its a restaurant with a bar .Didn't eat but the menu seemed uninspiring.

It seems that hello1973 that lost his/her objectivity with their only posts over the past 17 months praising this place on this comments page or that of other local pubs.

As an independent local I am pleased that the Gomshall Mill Inn as it is now named has changed so the bar has a pubby feel to it. There are now nearly always 1 or 2 beers from the local breweries, Dorking or Hogs Back. However there are rarely 4 pints on at one time .It's a restaurant first and foremost with a small bar with a great fire where people can eat or drink

Itís a good place with reasonably kept beer and friendly staff, but letís keep some perspective.

Aahhh now this is what i call a pub it is now just gomshall mill inn (they have removed the awful blubeckers logo) tho i am informed still part of the company but they will have a little bit more freedom to suit the local area CREAM TEAS etc etc 4 real ales on pump ranging from pride to the local ale at the moment which is hogs back local ale but the landlord Allen told me they have now a bigger selection to choose from and the refurbishment looks great 10 outta 10 for all the effort the really friendly staff well done Allen and Dean

Just thought i would pop on a comment about GOMSHALL MILL wow what a great night JAZZ EVENING with the apex jazz band (FRI 28 AUG) little bit chilly outside but they did finish the night inside food was nice but the staff really friendly would have no problems taking anyone one to here time and time again. Nice mix of customers from young to old and someone pionted out the new manager (since dec 08) is always available what a nice change they are normally in the office

Came here with my mum for a meal because the Compasses had stopped serving food. Was expecting keg so happy to see not only Pride but also Dry Hop Gold from the new Dorking Brewery. Food was ok too. Certainly counts as a pub as you can come in for just a drink, reasonably priced at less than £3 and well kept.

Was here the other day for my brother-in-law's birthday. Pleasant and attentive staff, food only just okay, two real ales on (Hog's Back HOP and London Pride, both in average condition).Despite it being a lovely day over a bank holiday week-end, the place wasn't full, which seemed strange.

It was lovely to watch the trout in the Tillingbourne outside.

Went here last night (Sunday) and got served a perfectly palatable pint of hand pumped real ale, some St George's Day one with a suitably patriotic label on the pump, I'm easily led. It's certainly not a spit and sawdust local, but they didn't seem to mind my wife and I popping in for a swifty. We even got a good seat looking at the waterwheel that can be seen from inside.
They may be more food focused than most, but it still qualifies as a pub in my book.

just a comment apparently they have a new manager irish guy seems pleasent enough and i hear on the grapevine this may becoming a freehouse??? he is using local brewery Hogs Back winter ale nice enough pint and seems to be catering for pretty much everyone.We will have to wait and see but 10 out of 10 for effort for him..

I don't know why this is on the site as its not a pub, but the food is good if uninspiring - standard steaks, burgers, fajitas and a truely huge menu, which is not something I favour
GGG - 3 Nov 2008 16:03
Is this in the same chain as The White Horse Shere coz the foods of the same quality yuck.
And a pub this is not.
anonymous - 7 Sep 2008 17:18
I wish to correct part of my previous comment. They currently serve London Pride and one other ale on draught. Also bottled Leffe.
GGG - 4 Sep 2008 13:16
As Beersupper says, "this is a restaurant, not a pub." Maybe someone has been confused by the sign outside which says real ales are served - they aint, and never have been.
GGG - 5 Aug 2008 10:28
This is a restaurant not a pub so why is it here Fran?? Good Brake Bros food served here.Building lovely nothing else worth calling in for.2/10
