In the heart of the Surrey Hills, this 16th-century pub is only 12 miles from Guildford but it makes the most of its rural position down to the herd of llamas in the adjacent field. Handpumps of locally brewed ales like Shere Drop and Loxhill Biscuit take pride of place in the bar and the kitchen keeps things simple whether it’s the lunchtime sandwiches and platters or the main menu. A typical meal might include the likes of Thai green chicken curry; sausage and mash with peas and red onion gravy; and a 1970s-inspired scampi in the basket.
