On this occasion we clearly failed to deliver. The apologies and refund offered on the day seem to be insufficient. I apologise again and hope that your past positive visits will allow you to give us another chance. Many thanks.

The name Brockham originates from the Anglo Saxon, meaning'River meadow by the brook'. The village is first recorded in 1241 and was of a substantial size by the 15th century. The rich soil around the River Mole attracted a growing population. Agriculture was the largest employer, until the quarrying of limestone and chalk began in the local hills in the 19th century. Betchworth, although smaller, was where the gentry chose to build their homes. Their servants were encouraged to take up residence in Brockham, it being a convenient but safe distance away. Life in the village has always centred on the village green, which is flanked by the two pubs, The Royal Oak and The Grumpy Mole (Formerly The Dukes Head). It is dominated by Christ Church on the south side. This building was commissioned, in 1847, by Sir Henry Goulburn, who served as both Chancellor of the Exchequer and Home Secretary.
