Some catching up to do! I went here on Sunday and had the cheese and tomato panini, on Monday I had the veggie Texan Burger and today I opted for the Lasagne! I had a pint of real ale on each occasion! You can even sit by the windows and watch the traffic and people walking past.

Today I went to Wetherspoons in Guildford and had fish and chips with mushy peas and curry sauce. I Even had a pint of Abbot Ale to spice things up. You can sit at one of the many tables in this big pub.

Today I went to Wetherspoons in Guildford and had a vegetable curry. I also had a pint of American IPA and sat at a table and you can even watch people walking past outside.

I haven't been in the Dog and Bull for at least two years and i had a swifty in the Oval in June that hardly makes me a Croydon drunk!I have been to the Sultan for instance sixteen times since the start of June, I certainly do not frequent Croydon's pubs much at all!

I couldn't quite catch that could we have it a third time.At least we know the pie topping was Welded on.You always get an ancient old fart on here who keeps his finger on the button for multiple postings....we have a winner.

Fozzy and slerpy, please be constructive - it's bad enough having to put up with the gibberish computer geeks put on - let's try and keep the site to the purpose it was created for.

Much better today for some reason! Almost totally empty so thats probably why. The Landlord was enjoying the cricket. The beer is pretty good and they showed plenty of sport on tv!

Pint of Olivers Island. Amazingly weak beer but drinkable. They do Monday darts nights now but where is the darts board?
27 Jun 2017 17:52
Pub has now opened again. Excellent tasting real ale and the interior is much smarter and brighter than previously. Very good.

£4.30 a pint. I''m not surprised pubs are closing down. Disappointed. Cut it to £3.50 for an ale and I may return.

I made the mistake of coming here again, full of tossers, especially in the beer garden why cant people have their beer in peace? At £4.40 I wasted time and money and liver space here. Shocking!

Big is entitled to his opinion. Yours - ''some nice ales and it''s clean!''

The drunks of Croydon?

Old slerpy has been one for decades.

3 Mar 2017 14:27
Tuna,That Steak on hot stones is repeating on you,three posts in two days saying the same thing,this pub resembles a museum ,i have got used to it,the beer is very expensive therefore a good place to hide away from the drunks of Croydon.

If I drank wine it could be fine as well better than last of the summer mine

Staff were mine or fine Oh right so I cant edit whats been typed fucking bite!
26 Jun 2017 19:44
Very disappointing on a Monday, but I can't blame the staff. Staff were mine today. Not that long a wait to get served but the customers who come here must be some of the most annoying. Godalming does attract some annoying people.

Discovered this place on New Year's Day and it's a gem. I said I'd say it so I will, the staff were excellent and I love the decor in places like this.

last Saturday the cask ales were served much too cold, therefore not much taste.

A more organised and dare we say grand, reopening event is being scheduled for Saturday 7th October! For those yet to come and enjoy what this revived local pub has to offer, do come and give it your onceover. Lots of fellow sociable drinkers have already, and seem not to be disappointed! Final event details still TBA, but be assured that there''ll be plenty to get stuck into.

Well, I shan''t seek to dispute what you say as there is some truth in it of course for many people. But that doesn''t mean a bright, friendly local boozer is entirely irrelevant, and so far the feedback received has been positive, and trade has been pretty steady too, despite our still nascent offering.

Thanks for the good wishes, and if ever you feel like an evening of old-fashioned simple enjoyment free of the tedium of stuff like supermarkets and Wetherspoon''s (in particular, The Sun), then you shall always be welcome in the Gari.

Called in since the reopening - bright, friendly , old local. But life moves on - time has taken over.

Most don''t want a chat with a regular; too busy for that. 4/5 pubs within half a mile have closed.

Bus conductors have gone - like chimney sweeps, farriers, phone boxes, wimpey bars, corner shops, many bus routes and lifestyles.

Now we relate differently - and use supermarkets and Wetherspoons. Godd luck though.

Reviews by BITE users:

This "alternative venue" is an off licence, only a Martian would think that an off licence is anything different! it does a range of bottled beers and one or two on stillage. it is not exactly first date material! Only worthwhile for elderly CAMRA types who want to boast that they had a warm bottle of Crudginton's old hot water bottle at 24.3% that costs two mortgages.So therefore It is invariably empty like the returned bottles.1/10.
21 Jul 2017 18:56
Great and alternative venue. Like Four Hops in Reigate.

Both on West Street(s).

Craft ale, at its best.....
28 May 2017 17:57
The Know-it-all attitude turns customers away,Dorking is very poor for choice and as i don't drink at home this tiny excuse for an off licence doesn't improve matters.
