We are regular visitors to the Onslow Arms and have always been well looked after and have enjoyed the yummy food. Unfortunately the restaurant became quite noisy when a large party of people came in. The service also suffered because of the volume of people all ordering at the same time. However the quality of food did not suffer.

Went for dinner last night. Packed as normal and we were first sitting. We had about 15 minutes of our allotted time left and were finishing our desserts when the extremely rude next client came up and told us we had 13 minutes left and to hurry up. We were gobsmacked. However, unknown to us at the time, our lovely... More

This is a lovely country pub - but very busy. We visited on a Wednesday lunch time and got there early at 12 - but the restaurant was fully booked. They found us a table in the small bar area. Food best described as posh pub food - I had confit of duck and my friend had calves liver. Both... More

Visited a number of times and I genuinely have never had an experience less that great. The food is unpretentious, but always tastly, the service is spot on and the location and furnishing are wonderful.

Quote " we have only just opened this room today after refurbishment" We did not sit down to eat until 1.10pm and had to complain about the arctic temperature ( might as well have been in the garden). When I complained, a number of other longer suffering customers, who had endured the cold voiced their complaints as well. Why was... More

This was my first visit and my friend and I went in for morning coffee. The serving staff were very welcoming and pleasant. The decor was very good and at first we were pleased to sit in the sofas by the open fire. Unfortunately, the sofas were too far apart for us to be able to hear each other comfortably,... More

We were coming back from Portsmouth with friends who were going different directions on the M25 and this pub proved the perfect place to have a Sunday roast before we parted. They were very good at squeezing us in with a late booking and we could not believe how busy this place was yet it managed to keep a friendly... More

Surprisingly managed to book for a late lunch on a Saturday for 10 people with only 2 weeks notice......so glad we could! It was heaving when we arrived but we were shown to our table straight away and received great service from our waitress who even made a note of my food intolerance and checked with the chef when I...

We went for a drink there in the summer and we're so impressed by the bar, beer and staff that we decided we should come back. So for a birthday meal we did. I cannot fault any aspect of the ambience, service, food, drink. The staff are professional and have a relaxed ease. They brought out a happy birthday treat... More

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!
