We spent a very enjoyable evening here. The host was very friendly and welcoming. This pub is gorgeous. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We had a delicious dinner in the restaurant ( vegans catered for ) plus a very good breakfast in the morning. I would thoroughly recommend it. I love this place
Spent a couple of very comfortable days in the Gatehouse which is over the road from the pub itself. Best bits about the house were it’s comfortable bed and outside sitting area. Worst bits? There were none! Food and service in the pub were excellent. If you like a sharp juice with your breakfast do try the cranberry; it’s not the usual watery stuff available in supermarkets and was delicious.
What more could you want. Luscious beers on tap, huge and comfortable beds, the most wonderful food in the restaurant, and staff that are really helpful and friendly. The food was excellent and the chef deserves a medal for producing consistent and truly excellent meals. We stayed for 3 nights (without our kids) in August and really appreciated the peace. The calm efficiency of the staff and the magnificent and truly memorable food. (The scallops were to die for, my husband said the battered fish was the best he had ever had and the Chateaubriand was simply gorgeous!) This pub had got everything and deserves to be cherished. If you want a breakaway with fab food, great local walks, and wonderfully comfortable beds, book – you will not be disappointed!
First Outing Since Lockdown
Came for a drink and snacks yesterday, the guys there are working so hard to make everyone feel comfortable and safe. They are friendly and accommodating and the food was amazing especially the squid and the ham hock croquettes! I would definitely recommend this pub. Make sure you book!!
Great Food, Lovely Atmosphere & Friendly Staff
We had Sunday lunch here and had a wonderful experience. The food was incredible, with great quality and good portion sizes. The service was 5* everyone was so nice and attentive! We went with our dog and they are very dog friendly and did everything to accommodate our puppy including seating us away from another dog that didn’t like puppies without us even asking! The atmosphere was lovely – we will definitely go back!! Fantastic food in a lovely pub – the perfect place for a relaxed Sunday.
First Pub of Choice After Lockdown
The Running Horses is by far my favourite pub in the Surrey Hills before lockdown, and possibly even more so after lockdown. The host could not have been more accommodating, always coming over to check everything was okay, whilst slipping our dog a treat or two which she was delighted with. The food is always excellent, and the service is just as good. Make sure to book as it was packed with other fellow happy customers. What’s not to love – great food, friendly staff, and buzzy and happy atmosphere. Would recommend this pub to anyone.
Fantastic to Have This Place Open Again
Under new management since Sept 2020. They’ve made a real effort with their reopening for April 2021. Really pleasant staff. Great selection of beers and wine. Reduced menu whilst their only operating outside but delicious food! Highly recommend the burger! They’re very vigilant with Covid safety. I Will be back again and again!
Lunch in the Sun
Lovely lunch in the sun and very friendly and accommodating staff. The food was really good, we had a sharing platter with artichoke which we liked especially. The staff was so nice. We will definitely be back!
Surrey Hills Finest Pub
Great ambiance. Wonderful service. Covid regulations are well thought out. We are thrilled to be back at pubs and this was a great experience, family feel, great for couples too. We would recommend calling ahead if you want a table in the sun.
Great Local Country Pub
Great to see this pub open once again and so nice to feel welcome. The staff was really friendly and we are always getting good service, and the beer is well looked after. Just what a country pub should be. Currently, we are restricted to the outdoors, but looking forward to getting back inside and enjoying their excellent food
Amazing Hidden Gem
We have had the absolute pleasure of staying in this pub for a week due to us having to move house.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff they have been truly outstanding in their customer service. The food is excellent. They have an excellent drink selection (one of my favorite rosé wines Minuty) I would definitely recommend staying here or popping in for drink/food. The location is brilliant for Box Hill if you’re into walking and….they are dog friendly to stay or eat.
We're terribly sorry for any inconvenience this might cause you.
We will be open Wednesday - Sunday for drinks, lunch, and dinner.
We look forward to seeing you then.
Thank you for your understanding & continued support.
The Running Horses team
