This former bikers’ pub on the edge of Ockham & Cobham flashes the cash spent on it, notably in the cool extension with a wraparound covered seating area – although the spacious modernised interior works beautifully too. The place is still proud of its pub credentials, with real ales on tap & a bar menu of ploughman’s, baguettes & fish & chips offered amid the agreeably pubby hubbub. Those wanting something flashier should head for the dining areas, where the menu promises high-class renditions of the classics (ham hock rillettes with piccalilli, fillet steak with chips) as well as dishes with a more modern accent such as beetroot, red onion & rocket salad with hazelnuts & blue cheese dressing or a duo of local wild roe deer (marinated fillet & a mini shepherd’s pie) accompanied by celeriac purée, roasted carrots, shallots & game jus. Well-chosen wines, too.
