Tucked away in the historic town of Godalming, Inn on the Lake offers al fresco dining with beautiful lakeside views. Serving a menu of modern British cuisine with a Mediterranean influence, this refurbished gastro pub also comprises a large bar area with wooden and stone floors, nostalgic black-and-white artwork on the walls, and roaring fireplaces, as well as an airy dining area with suede chairs and cosy banquettes.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, the Inn on the Lake menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest available ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at the Inn on the Lake bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

Inn on the Lake in Surrey is a 12-minute walk from Godalming Railway Station.

    The lamb and salmon were excellent.

    The food is always good here with a large choice and regular changes to their menu. Unfortunately, the restaurant was very cold which doesn't make for an enjoyable dining experience and the waiter had an unusual manner, not really seeming to care about the customer's experience. When my friend finally chose her meal after so much deliberation with all the delicious choices it was disappointing to only be told at that stage that the spit-roasted chicken was unavailable.

    Absolutely fabulous food as always, however we had to ask to be moved due to a very loud party of 13 right beside us!! The service was brilliant and as soon as we asked to move the staff were very accommodating. Only problem was that we were moved to the back room and there was another very large party of similar size!! Suggest maybe have large parties in the same room and adjust staffing accordingly!!!!

    Very disappointing service and food quality

  • ((((( 19 September 2016 by John from Horsham

    I have been here to dine and/or just to have drinks a few times in the last couple of months. Really like this place, food doesn’t disappoint either. Inside/outside it is all presented really well. Staff are very good and friendly, never rush you while dining. Good atmosphere and you'll always find a little corner to relax. It gets busy, but the place is big enough to deal with it and you'll find a quiet spot somewhere, I think you wouldn't be disappointed here, so over all I'm happy to recommend.
