Had a great vegetarian Sunday Roast here recently. The pub itself is great with excellent staff and the food and atmosphere is always first class. Can't fault it.

Popped in for a few pints whilst in Farnham for the day. Lovely traditional pub with a log fire, decent selection of ales and decent looking menu.

Not from around here, Google search says this is the best roast in Farnham - they are so true to their word. Awesome roast, brilliant staff and super popular - booking is advisable. Cravings satisfied.
