SquareMeal Review of The Scolt Head

‘People think I’m going to read them a story,’ says the barmaid, as she opens the Rupert Bear annual to reveal the wine list. It’s just one of the touches that bring character to this quirky spot. The sibling owners grew up in the area, and the fun they’ve had creating their own pub shows. Two Guinness factory pressure gauges flank the entrance, and there’s Greene King and Truman ale, and Addlestones cider on tap. A big screen for football and live band nights also attract punters. Food is carefully sourced, with chutneys, jams and ice creams made in house. Sit in the dining room or on the leafy terrace and tuck into grilled asparagus with poached egg and Parmesan, rump of lamb with mash and buttered sprouting broccoli, and lemon tart with crème fraîche.
