Onslow Arms, West Clandon

Description: This Traditional old English pub has recently been refurbished and slighlty altered layout, including a lighter counter top to the long bar, better lighting and new seating. The walls are decorated with art prints, newspaper cuttings, old photographs. Beers on offer include Fosters, Guinness, Kronenbourg 1664, San Miguel, Warsteiner. Pridenjoy, T.E.A. and a guest ale. Strongbow cider, bottled beers including Corona, Budweiser, and holsten Pils. There is also a new restaurant area on the street side replacing the L'auberge French restaurant. There can't be many venues in the country that can offer their patrons somewhere to land their helicopter, while eating in very pleasant 17th Century surroundings, but this is one. Thankfully it looks as if the Live music is going to continue at this venue.

  2. Only eaten in L'Auberge but the food is ace.
    2 course meal is £10 at lunchtimes (£2.50 supplement for the steak) and for that price I couldn't complain. Had a Deuchars and IPA, which were both well kept.

  3. Dreadfull. Food was served cold, the flavouring was blunt to say the least - there was no sign of any chef balancing flavours. The Venison in the stew was tough and the sauce mainly flour. The Foie Gras was bland. "Scallops" (Really king prawns) over-powered with garlic. The Poached pear with strawberry ice bland as opposed to delicate. Service was arrogant / slow to the verge of rudeness.
    On asking for the dessert wine list, the waiter actually refused to fetch it and effectively forced us to accept his choice! On asking for the Sommelier (with the prices charged, I would have expected one) the waiter ( who was French ) professed/pretended not to understand! All this and they have the bare faced cheek to charge near Michelin star prices. Dreadfull, Dreadfull, Dreadfull.
