Sadly the Shere Drop had sold out leaving rather boring samey beers to sample. The food this time was a big let down. We both wanted a turkey sandwich but this was also sold out and I was recommended a beef steak sandwich whilst my wife chose a salmon sandwich. Mine was stringy and difficult (impossible) to chew whilst my wife bit into a 1" piece of plastic. On complaint the meal was 'replaced' and then later the manager(?) asked if all was ok so we appraised her of the situation. My wife's meal cost was reimbursed, sadly not mine. They were very lucky as if any damage had occurred to my wife's teeth then we would have involved the appropriate authorities and sought damages for any costs. We were doing a 'recci' for a group meal but we are now unlikely to choose this place.

Mrs Smudge treated me to lunch today and we'd never tried this place before. Awesome outdoor location on a lovely day. Well pricey food led us to the (still pricey!) sandwich menu, although they were very nice indeed. I guess you pay for the location. More restaurant than pub inside which is a bit of a shame, but Hog's Back TEA, Surrey Hills Shere Drop and Stag's own brand Spring Ale (Marston's brewed apparently) on tap. I tried the Spring Ale and the Shere Drop and they were both very good. A very pleasant couple of hours spent outside by the river. Just the lumpy prices lets it down.

A nicely located pub, which is its major strength and perhaps why it can get away with charging 3 or so a meal more than what might be considered good value, but as is a bit expensive for what you get. Beer was Surrey Hills Shere Drop and Hogs Back TEA, plus one badged as a Stag in-house one (not sure whether it was proper own brew, didn't ask, but suspect may not be). Great area outside next to the river including a base from which the catering staff do their stuff, ideal in the sun if the weather is good as others have said and as it was today. Disappointingly, we had the same experience as pold in October with respect to the soft drinks (lemonade in this case) being a bit flat... unfortunate coincidence or endemic problem? Pub is easily accessible off the A3, rail access is via a nice 25-30 minute walk from Godalming (or alternatively Witley). The clientele seemed quiet happy with what they were getting and whilst the committed experienced pubgoer may pick fault, this one does a job.

Popped in with a small group near the end of a long walk. Nice enough pub. Decent selection of local beers is always nice to see, such as Shere Drop and TEA. Agree with most posters, food is overpriced IMHO. Staff were friendly enough, and the landlord(?) did change my friends Shere Drop for him after commenting on being cloudy. A3 noise is a bit of a pain if outside, otherwise lovely setting. Interior nice in a distessed modern type of way. Oh, and dog friendly, if any space inside, or water bowls outside.

Went here last weekend, a small group for beers and a bit of food. Food was nice and the evening went well until a few of us switched to JD & coke (pepsi) the first few were just fine but the second/ third round tasted awful. Coming from 15 years inside the pub trade I know when the post mix is running out! I was given various samples of coke to taste but could not convince them it was weak, it may be brown but it tastes of soda water. I left, even after a fresh JD & coke had been delivered still tasting no better. I doubt I'll bother to go back which is a shame as I've only lived locally for 33 years.
