“Definitely pub food rather than restuarant standard”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Visited the Charterhouse on Sunday with friends for a meal. The menu looked good and had all the normal main dishes. I wasn't disappointed with the food and it was good value but definitely not up to restaurant standard. The dishes were nice just not impressive and the naan looked and tasted a bit manufactured.
If you are just looking for an accompaniment for drinks then this is a good choice but if you are just going with the purpose of eating I would recommend an alternative restaurant either Rajasthan or Farncombe Tandoori (both in Farncombe) or The Wharf in Godalming.

Fiendly atmosphere, mix of diner from very casual to business person, food was lovely - warm and lots of it. Friend paid so can't comment on cost but they eat regularly there

“Good pub grub”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

A nice honest pub with a good selection of beers. Nice atmosphere with a very definite local pub feel but an inclusive one not exclusive. Nicely put together, basic but comfortable furniture and a cosy feel to it. Excellent food, good menu, good value. Quick service and quite willing to go 'off piste' on request. Impressed with all aspects of this pub. A friend visited and said it was the best pub curry he'd ever had. Praise indeed.

“Best Indian in the area”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

It's much better than any of the traditional takeaways in the area, and its a pub! Great curry. End of story really.

“A disappointing evening”
Reviewed 14 November 2012

We like real ale, but of the 3 handouts not one was on. Staff said only landlord could change a barrel - and he was out all evening.

Curry very variable: a sag paneer made of mostly grated cheddar and tasting of 'cheese of toast' was unacceptable even for pub food
