We visited for Sunday lunch on 2 February 2014. Very olde worlde and cosy and spotlessly clean. The service was friendly and efficient. The menu published on the internet seems a little limited but they have a specials board also with a very good number of choices. Two of us had the Lamb Henry with roast potatoes and veg. The lamb fell off the bone and was mouth watering. The roast potatoes were some of the best I've ever tasted. My husband had one of the pies and also said that that was delicious. The last of our party of four had the fish cakes which I think she found to be perfectly fine but, being a vegetarian, she would have liked a bit more to choose from. (there was another fish dish - salmon I believe - but that had sold out by the time we ordered. I was the only one to have pudding and choose the butterscotch pie which was superb. I particularly liked it because it wasn't made with really sickly sweet, crumbly pastry that you so often get - that would have been too much with the butterscotch filling. Will definitely return, especially as everything was very reasonably priced too.

Visited today 29/12/13 for a birthday lunch with a range of ages from 20 months to 85 years young. Excellent service, excellent food all plates cleared. Food all hot and plentiful, all fresh produce used, excellent value for money. Food clearly made with love. Return regularly and never disappointed.

We were looking for somewhere to meet some friends in Guildford, for dinner and a chat. It was a Friday night and we chose the Bulls Head in West Clandon because it was likely to be less noisy than Guildford itself - and the food reviews were good.
What a great choice. Although a relatively small restaurant area, maybe 25 seats, the food was top notch and the selection was really good too. My stilton & broccoli quiche was divine, good fresh salad and coleslaw, and home made chips (none of the all too common frozen chips). Despite clearly being mainly frequented by locals out for a Friday tipple, the atmosphere for non-locals was great and the service was friendly and efficient.
I'd recommend this place to anyone.

We ate in this restaurant yesterday and what a little find! Superb home cooked food - pies to die for. We always pass it on our way to the very busy highly rated Onslow Arms but not anymore. This will be our first stop from now on. It also looks like an old traditional pub which adds to the atmosphere. Keep doing what you are doing!

Lunch on a lazy Sunday afternoon and incredible value for money. I had lamb with minted gravy and the usual vegetables and roast potatoes. The plate was stacked and the lamb just fell off the bone and melted in your mouth. Cooked to a tee ! It was all delicious, only comment was way too much food haha. This quaint little pub is like a little grotto inside with little fairy lights everywhere and is one of the last remaining traditional Old English Pubs please don't modernise as it is perfect just the way it is.
