This small pub has bare-brick walls covered in old photographs and Fuller's beer adverts. Today there is one L-shaped bar, but etched glass on the unused exterior doors shows that this was not always the case. A TV is in one corner and this is used for major sporting events shown on terrestrial TV, especially rugby when a couple of extra TVs will be on if England are playing when it is often standing room only. A dart board is at one end, and past this is one of the pub's best features, a walled Georgian garden. This is on two levels; the upper part is under a large umbrella which can be heated and is a real suntrap when the umbrella is not required. There is also a TV in the garden which is used, weather permitting, for the most popular events. Occasionally there is live music and there are monthly quiz nights. Children are welcome until early evening. Sandwiches, snacks and a few hot meals like lasagne or a pie are available 12-2:30 Tuesday to Friday. The Dorking Pie Company, and occasionally the landlord, also provide home-made snacks like scotch eggs and sausage rolls at times. Special events, such as a scalextric competition held in the garden (around Father's Day), may also feature a barbecue. As well as darts there is a selection of modern and traditional board games by the television and papers and WiFi are available. The two guest beer pumps may offer Fuller's seasonal beers or something from the Fuller's list such as Castle Rock. Beer festivals are held over the first May Bank Holiday and in the autumn (usually September), when there will be about an extra ten beers on in the garden, with some local beers featured, and some real cider. A third festival may be held if there is a major national event. The pub also holds other events throughout the year such as an onion competition. Two pint containers are available for off sales. On alternate Monday evenings a classic film is shown.
