Summary

This handsome old brick-and-beams pub serves “ambitious but very consistent” meals, prepared by an enthusiastic team led by “an excellent young chef” – Mike Wall-Palmer – “ably guided by Steve Drake”, the owner, whose main operation is now Sorrel in Dorking.

Summary

“It might be a pub setting, but its quality reflects the high standards imported from Drakes” just across the road, which proprietor Steve Drake used to run. “Thoughtful and beautifully prepared food” is “elegantly presented with thought and care” in a “very comfortable and cosy”, “low-beamed” setting.

Summary

A recent “offshoot of Drakes”, set “just across the road” from that establishment, and offering “brilliant food but fewer pub facilities” than in its former, less glamorous, incarnation.

Summary

“What was a tired and grotty boozer” has been transformed into an “outstanding” gastropub “with the emphasis on the gastro” by new owners Drakes; reporters are “not sure you’d want to pop in for a pint”, but for “great” steaks and “inventive” salads it's just the ticket.
