This was our second meal out since lockdown started, and didn’t compare favourably to our first on the COVID safety front.
Don’t get me wrong, if I’d eaten here before lockdown i would of rated it higher.

There was little care taken to limit staff proximity or contact, and no track and trace.
All we saw were staff playing with the thermometer that I assume was for COVID checking, not using it on patrons. No masks were worn and only one door was propped open.

The food was good. But I’d like to of seen more care taken regarding COVID safety.

Nice pub in a very nice location, just the outside garden (that' very nice too) is a little bit noisy because of the main road passing by. The service was efficient and professional.
The Sunday roast was nice, also the vegan one, but I would have liked to see more vegan options on the menu.

The roast lamb was very tasty but could have been a bit hotter. The vegetables were all good but we did not need the huge Yorkshire puddings on top !

Service was excellent but the food was a let down. They had limited choices because the two dishes that I would have chosen were not available although I was not warned when we were given the menus. I had the burger which was bland and the chips were undercooked. My wife had the chicken which was dry without any sauce. I expected more in terms of quality. The glass of red was also expensive at £8.50.

This was a birthday celebration for a party of 6. Very nice elevated table - slightly subdued lighting - a bit difficult to read the menu without a torch! However food was very good - Beef wellington special a big hit with the table - very good quality beef and perfectly cooked.Excellent service. Slightly expensive but it is Surrey and would certainly give it a strong recommendation .

It was Father’s Day and the kitchen was very overstretched unfortunately so our food came out very late. However usually they are super efficient so we put it down to being exceptionally busy... the food was excellent and worth the wait!

I found the veggie Wellington roast very under whelming. The Wellington itself was under cooked, with raw pastry and not entirely convinced it had been thoroughly warmed all the way through. The roast potatoes were pale; and the vegetables and gravy were both served up in pitifully small portions. The Yorkshire pudding was the only saving grace of the entire thing. I think if the Veggie wellington had been cooked and was hot it too would have lived up to the standard I would have expected from the price tag. The service were abrupt and a bit rude frankly, definitely was made to feel like we were on a conveyor belt and the staff didn't want us there. The pub was cold and we had to keep our jackets on. While the decor is great and the atmosphere from the pub could really feed off of that we left feeling disappointed. I doubt we'll return as there are plenty of nicer friendly places with food that is actually cooked on offer in Surrey.

I took my partner there to celebrate her birthday. It was our first time visiting The Duke of Wellington and we were not left disappointed. In fact, we both agreed that it was the best meal we’d ever eaten whilst at a restaurant. The flavours and presentation of ever dish from starter to desert were outstanding. We cannot wait to visit again

The overall experience was very enjoyable. Only marked down on the food score because the kitchen should not have allowed such fatty lamb rack to be presented in the first place, everything else was very good. Certainly gives the established gastro pubs in the area more than a run for the money.
