Set opposite the world famous Epson Downs Racecourse, The Derby Arms is a refurbished gastro pub with an outdoor dining area enjoying views of the rolling countryside. Modern British dishes are served in the cosy bar & restaurant, which are filled with deep leather sofas, horserace-themed artwork, and cushioned dining seats.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Derby Arms menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest 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 Derby Arms bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Derby Arms in Surrey is a 4-minute drive from Tattenham Corner Rail Station.

    Party of four all had roast dinners including one vegetarian meal. The food was very good and service good considering how busy the restaurant was. Would visit again.

    I have lunched at the Derby Arms a thousand times over the last 50 years. It's one of my favourite Pub/Eating Places. Your Giant Prawns with Chilli are spectacular, and your Pizzas are always top standard

    Not the best. Although they were expecting us at the appointed time, they did not acknowledge the roast dinner I selected through the app. Several items were not available from the menu. Initial duty manager food (I presume) although didn't seem to be aware of the roast offer we booked, reluctantly said they would honour it, however, waitress ( almost argumentatively) suggested the offer we quoted from our email confirmation was for roast From £11.95, and therefore the roasts on the menu were all priced above £11.95, therefore the food would be charged as per the menu, hence not an offer at all. Understand mistakes happen, but the reaction from the staff in my opinion was not customer focused.
