Harden's says

This 17th century Cobham inn by the Common has been renovated and relaunched thanks to Brasserie Blanc's pub company The White Brasserie Company, serving French brasserie fare as well as British pub classics.

Given its attractive setting on Downside Common, this “lovely country pub” (part of Raymond Blanc’s White Brasserie chain) in the heart of plush stockbroker belt would likely be a local destination come what may. But it also goes the extra mile and – though it’s not particularly ‘gastro’ – wins consistently high acclaim for its “cheerful welcoming staff” and high quality of cooking. “It was done up over the winter; and although there is no longer a set menu, the prices are reasonable in the current climate”. Top Menu Tip – “well-prepared steak and very good tartiflette starter”.

“A favourite because it’s so consistently good”, this spacious old pub in a beautiful setting on Downside Common is part of Raymond Blanc’s White Brasserie chain, and has a menu that runs from baguette with dips to (royal butcher) Aubrey Allen steak and chips. A recent makeover has spruced things up a bit.

Part of Raymond Blanc’s White Brasserie chain, this atmospheric and rambling tavern on Downside Common achieves “a high standard, embracing good real ale and generally good food” – with a menu that runs the gamut from tartiflette and escargots to beef & ale pie. There’s “plenty of space”, and a “nice ambience in the period building, or eating outside on the green”.

This big, “wonderfully positioned” inn, on Downside Common offers “a great formula which feels truly local, despite being part of a growing chain” (Raymond Blanc’s White Brasserie Co.). Service is “friendly and efficient” and provides “a great combination of high-quality traditional pub food” and some “good-value brasserie-style items”.

"Had lunch with a friend after a visit to Wisley. Took advantage of their January special offer of half price main courses. Enjoyed the moules starter and the pork ribeye. "
