Sitting right on the High Street in Cranleigh, The Richard Onslow is a busy pub with great food, 10 beautiful bedrooms and is conveniently located near to Guildford. We have worked hard to retain the period features in this historic building and we hope that our modern and unfussy approach to decor, service and food will give you the perfect place to celebrate, spend time with friends or simply unwind with a coffee.

We kick things off at 7am and 7.30am at weekends and will welcome you in for piping hot drinks from our professional barista coffee machine and the team are always on hand to make sure you start the day on the right track.

Have you tried our new fixed price menu? Enjoy two courses for £13.75, weekdays 12pm-6pm, and Saturday 12pm-3pm.

We look forward to seeing you soon,

Tom and the team

    A little disappointing on this occasion with regard to the food. My daughter in law and I chose the sea bream special but the portion of fish was extremely small and therefore not good value for money. It was however quite tasty. My two grandchildren had the burger but this was dry and somewhat overcooked. The main girl serving and who took our order was good and smiley but maybe the second girl needs a little more training?

    The Richard OnslowResponded on 12 April 2022

    Oh no, this does not look like our usual high standards at all! We are sorry to have let you down on this occasion. We are always striving for pub perfection and would love to hear more about your experience. Please do get in touch with us at reservations@peachpubs.co m.

    Lovely meal for Mothers Day in the garden. The staff were attentive and friendly and the food was very tasty and beautifully presented although a little slow to arrive after ordering but well worth the wait! It was a bit chilly in the garden as under sun shades and still only March, so heaters would be good and blankets at the ready. Dress for comfort and warmth. In all, a great family get together and will definately be returning.

    The food was fabulous. It was my Mum’s birthday meal and over the last few years she’s not been out to eat very much what with COVID and my Dad suffering a stroke. She thoroughly enjoyed herself and we truly appreciated the free dessert because it was her birthday. We will definitely be returning, thank you.

    My friend and I enjoyed a very pleasant lunch with excellent service, good food and wine. We both had the whitebait which was well cooked (not overdone as sometimes can happen). My friend very much enjoyed the camembert and I was equally pleased with the goats cheese and figs - great presentation too.

    I visited one week ago for lunch and the food and service were both exceptionally good. Yesterday (one week later) was not quite to the same excellent standard in that the service was not as slick and the food not as 'amazing' as the previous week.

    We booked a table for 6 - 3 couples and the table offered was not at all acceptable - no spacing at all. Perhaps in fairness I should have told them when booking. They quickly moved us to a better table plan. However you would think they would take drink orders straight away. Same when we wanted repeat orders. Bit strange when we were seated right by the service desk! We had to ask them. Food was good and plentiful. Waitress was very pleasant but it seemed all the effort had to come from us.

    The Richard OnslowResponded on 30 October 2020

    Thanks for your feedback- we value all guest comments. Glad to hear you enjoyed the food and the waitress was pleasant, however I'm very sorry we didn't take your drinks order straight away.

    We were disappointed with the Sunday roast as we had read the description on the website and were really looking forward to it. The meal was very mediocre with tough meat being hidden under pools of lukewarm gravy. The pork came with good crackling but no apple sauce. In fact the beef and pork were treated the same with Yorkshire puddings on all plates. The service was friendly but intermittent with staff forgetting we were there. We would not recommend this restaurant and will not be returning ourselves.

    The Onslow blows hot and cold.......today was cold. Service was poor (waited 20 mins before main course plates were cleared......and then had to ask), roast lamb was stringy, fatty left overs, no decent slices. Roast pork pretty tasteless and veg not very warm. Sea Bass was very good though. Asked for apple sauce that never arrived. One dessert came without cream. Didn’t complain at time as we had guests. Felt invisible at times. Just such a shame they can’t be consistent because when they are good they are very good.
