Attended a community meeting here recently. We were sent away from the main area to an out-of-sight room. Expensive - the locals call it the Pricey Arms. The decor is a mixture of grey and muddy brown, with "moody" greyscale photographs of African savannah. I've also heard it called the Botswana Arms. Furnishings modern and ugly. Ordered a whisky at the end of the night - the beautiful Macallan - stupid girl behind the bar immediately dunked a load of barely-frozen ice in it before I could stop her. It had thawed completely within a minute, completely diluting that wonderful malt. Service, such as it was, was inattentive and unfriendly. Not impressed. Much better pubs in this part of the world - the Onslow at Cranleigh, albeit part of a smallish national pubco, is in a different league. The Jolly Farmers at Bramley is also good. This pub, in its present form, deserves to fail. The sooner it goes bust, the better - maybe someone can then take it on, rename it to escape its awful reputation and make a go of it. As it is, it's going only one way - although the restaurant area looked moderately busy on what was a December week-night. Not sure I'd want to eat there, given its poor hygiene score!

I see the rating for this pub is more than they got for their food and hygiene by the local council.

This is the only pub within the vacinity that I could find that has a low ie 2 (out of 5) food hygiene rating on the scores on the doors website. Also the bar staff can be very annoying by ignoring you at the bar, oddly enough especially when it is quiet, more important it would appear to fill the dishwasher or collect glasses, even after acknowledging you when you arrive, I find this very strange and very very irritating. It is a messy place, the tea towels they use to wipe the bar and anything else they can find to wipe are filthy. I have walked out on several occasions due to lack of service. I have eaten here in the past and the steak was really good but would not recommend it due to the other issues especially the hygiene standards at the bar. It is quite up its own ar$e but I really cannot think why, the guy who runs the place is really arrogant and on a few occasions when I have been in, he is very rude to his staff, it doesn't appear to bother him being rude in front of customers.

We used to go to the Percy Arms quite regularly as we live within a couple of miles of it and it USED to be a great place to go. Something has gone terribly wrong! We have been twice in the last 3 weeks, the first time it was pretty poor - over an hour for food, over 20 minutes to get kids icecream out of the freezer, and today, well close to terrible, it's a real shame as it used to be so good!?
After a conciderable wait I ordered drinks at the bar which the barman made and walked off, I thought he had gone to ring it in on the till, after a couple of minutes I noticed he was serving someone else at the other end of the bar! After another considerable wait he returned and ask what he could get me, err give me the drinks you poured 5 minutes ago and left on the other end of the bar, 'oh did i leave them there', no apology, nothing! We were sat in the garden with a group of friends and remembering the food was a bit slow last time I ordered food for myself and my daughter, 2 burgers, 1 being a kids one. not that hard to mess up you'd think but oh how wrong was I. My daughters burger arrived within a reasonable time, I cut it in half for her to eat and it was very pink in the middle, I wouldn't of wanted to eat it and I certainly wasn't going to give it to my 4 year old so I promptly returned it. A new one came back 5 minutes later which was cooked this time but mine still hadn't arrived so I asked where mine was and I was told to get it from the barbecue? No one had mentioned that to me, if I'd not asked would I of just sat there all afternoon waiting for it??? I went to the barbecue and surprise no burger! Some excuse about 'the system crashed' (what some cut the string between the cans from the kitchen to the bar!) eventually a burger was ready and all was well, for me at least. The other members of the group had the same difficulties, half the order coming out, two of the burgers for my friends children were raw in the middle, not just pink, blood dripping red raw - COME ON IT'S A CHILD'S BURGER, I'd like to know if they'd serve it to their children ! A chef came out (was probably made to come out) no apology he just offered a steak sandwich!!!?
Like I said at the start of this... It USED to be a good place, but now I'm affaid wild horses will have difficulty dragging me in there again!

4/10 is overrated for this place.
The plus points Mmmmm only 2 the car park being large and the garden,then it goes downhill quickly, food below average, wine very expensive and beer just cloudy and off.
Someone told me to look on the `scores on the doors` webpage for their rating, interesting reading.
