Can anyone recommend a nice country pub within about 5 miles of Box Hill?
There are many. I'd recommend you buy a book called 'Pub Walks in Surrey' for some wonderful scenic walks with great pubs at the end of them.
Across the main road at Westhumble there is one I don't know the name of beside the station...
Famous pubs worth searching out include teh Plough at Coldharbour (near Leith Hill. Good food, great views, own beer), and the Stephen Langton, near Friday Street (great food), but deep in a secluded wooded valley.
Hope that's enough to get you started.
This may be too late but the Pub in westhumble is the stepping stones. Also there are a couple on top of Bos Hill, the hand in hand and the other escapes me for the moment but I haven't been to them in a long time. Personally I'd go with the King WIlliam, great food and lovely character full pub.
