This pub is well located for SW Surrey in a very pretty village and close to The Watts Gallery [easy to combine the two]. There is lots of choice of dishes and a really homely feel to the pub. My only comment would be that although the plates look stylish, they are too small and it can be hard to... More

We were a small party of four, celebrating my husband's 80th birthday, and it was great! The pub has a marvellous old atmosphere, the service was quick and very friendly. We had a wonderful meal, so much to choose from, and a bottle of Tsarine champagne I can thoroughly recommend.

It's a lovely looking building with a gorgeous outdoor seating area. We had the chicken Kiev and the beef Wellington and they were both perfectly done. Served by Frenchmen in Bow ties no less! We'd love to go back in the summer to sit in the lovely wooden chairs outside.

I loved the outside and thought this was a traditional pub. But no it was a restaurant. No dogs allowed. My fish soup tasted okay but I would not have it again. It was not what I expected. My elderly parents enjoyed the ham, egg and chips and the seafood platter. I am probably spoilt when it comes to fish... More

Great traditional pub, service is very good, silver service veg is served at the table, I had pate and steak both very good. The reason I give a 4 is the cost is a bit high. Main courses 13-24 pounds.

This was the first time I had been here. We came to meet some of my husbands friends from work. I chose the Arbroath smokies for starters followed by a steak with peppercorn sauce. What I wasn't expecting in a pub restaurant was silver service which was a really nice surprise. The veg were served to everybody at the main... More

Went for dinner before a comedy night in Guildford. The food was excellent, as nicely presented and cooked as anything I've eaten in a pub. The four of us had rack of lamb, beef stroganoff, mussels and beef Wellington. The reasons why I've only given three marks are two fold. Firstly, we went into the restaurant at 6.05 saying we...

Lunch for four on a Friday. The restaurant was quite busy but the noise level was comfortable. Service was good but not intrusive. The menu seems not to have changed for several years but the food is good, well cooked and decent portions. Prices are above average pub ranges, but not excessive. A main course, coffee and a glass of... More

I have been going to this restaurant for forty years and although I now live overseas, every time I am in the UK, I make a bee-line for my top restaurant. Obviously things have been updated, but the menu has old favourites, the staff are mainly the same and just as friendly, the food is exquisitely prepared with love and... More

I quite like The Withies - and so, it would seem, do many others. It is always busy so unless you have booked get there early.. The ambience is good as is the food and the staff are attentive. It is quaint. I can honestly say I have never been there and not enjoyed it - whether in the winter... More
