The Running Horses

Old London Road, MICKLEHAM, Dorking, RH5 6DU

Built in the 16th century, the inn had an important role as a coaching house, but it also sheltered highwaymen - a tiny ladder leading to the roof space was discovered during alterations. The inn acquired its name in 1825 after two horses, Colonel and Cadland, running in the Derby at Epsom, passed the post together. They appear on the inn sign, and the bars are named after them. Food includes sausage, mash and onion gravy; smoked haddock and salmon fishcakes; Rosary Ash goats' cheese and caramelised red onion quiche; pan-fried calves' liver with grilled bacon, wilted spinach, mash and rich onion jus; and pearl barley and Somerset brie risotto. Chunky sandwiches are available at lunchtime.
