We celebrated the arrival of 2016 Beaujolais Nouveau with a French themed supper and both of us ordered a delightful Boeuf Bourguignon. I have been eating at this restaurant and drinking in the bar for the past ten years and have never been disappointed. The service, food and atmosphere is consistently excellent, so this is a place I have no... More

Been here on several occasions and the service is always good as is the food. Love the banoffee sundae particularly and any fish dish with the crushed/mashed potatoes and the rich creamy lobster sauce. Awesome. Great atmosphere.

We had a late table at 9.30pm, but the place was heaving and not an empty table in sight. The waitresses were really nice and friendly and very accommodating when my wife asked to make a change to one of the dishes to suit her dietary needs. Not expensive in my opinion and I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting... More

This gastropub was a lovely surprise when we had dinner after a day at Mercedes Benz World in Weybridge. The menu is varied and interesting, and what we had was excellently prepared. Special mention to the crown of lamb that I had- it was the best cooked lamb that I had eaten in decades- perfectly cooked, full of flavour and... More

Now eaten here on several occasions. We keep going back as a family because of the nice atmosphere, good food and friendly service. It's been very busy every time we visited so the service has sometimes been a little slow, but they don't try to push you out. We have had a number of lovely meals with family and friends....we...

Took the extended family to the onslow arms for lunch Friday. Absolutely fantastic. My fish and chips were first class. Aunt insisted of bringing her dog and pub made room for it in the bar area. Good craft beer on tap. We were all very happy and then had a nice walk around hatchlands with the kids.

A lovely place to eat and have a drink. Relaxing atmosphere. Staff very friendly and obliging and nothing is too much of a task. Lovely dining room. Food excellent and hot with a great variety.

Nearly everybody you talk to knows The Onslow Arms and has fond memories of visits over the years. Undergoing a thorough refurbishment of the building in 2011, we lovingly restored the old girl back to her former glory and she has been going from strength to strength ever since! A smart community pub with a great range of beers and fresh food, where drinkers and eaters alike are looked after with the same friendly and professional service. We’re also hoping that those living further afield will visit us too, either•On foot across gorgeous Surrey countryside•By bike having negotiated Newland’s Corner•By train, direct line from Waterloo at Clandon Station 200 yds away•By car – extensive car parkingWith 11 National Trust properties within 10 miles, make it a day out with lunch or dinner at The Onslow Arms!
