Situated on the A25 this is an excellent spot to break your journey. Dating from 1830, this former Surrey Trust Company pub stands on the banks of the Tillingbourne. There is a separate bar and a restaurant, which serves homemade food, cooked to order. This is available each day, from 12-9:30 Monday to Friday, and 12-9 on Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays. There is a single menu, supplemented by a specials board, which is available in either the bar or the restaurant. Breakfasts are sold 10-12 Saturday and Sunday. The pub was originally called God Encompasses, but over time this was shortened to the current, easier to pronounce name. Live music in the form of a duo (blues, rock or folk) is featured every Friday evening from 9pm. The garden is reached by a bridge over the stream. The resident ghost is of a girl in her twenties who drowned in the Tillingbourne after trying to escape a fire in the pub. Luckily she is friendly and is known to turn the pub taps on, and to skip across the water. The Otter and St Austell beers alternate.
