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.

Customer reviews for The Derby Arms
(**** 13 September 2016 by Ravi Seyan from Tadworth
The dinning experience was not as expected. On arrival we were shown to our table where we waited for 15 minutes before any one came to us for our orders before drinks, We ordered some Pinot Noir , when waitress did bring one , I asked which one is it ? only to be told they only one, so I showed on the wine list where the two were. It was not they they were busy , they had few tablets free
The waitress were not the friendliest, no smile , no courtesy
The food was reasonable, not the best I have had , the food was expensive , one gets better service other local pubs
I will not be going back again

Excellent food and price as always, but the table wasn't set up and had to ask 3 times for knives and forks for the starter. For a table of 7, it felt as a table for 6 and space was limited. Staff were friendly and helpful. service wasn't rushed and atmosphere was good.
Strange no strawberries available for a "gin with strawberries and black pepper" drink at the start of the meal, but come dessert, strawberries aplenty to eat???

Food was lovely!!! Unfortunately service from young waitresses was appalling.
(((** 25 July 2016 by Lesley Wyse from Epsom
Excellent varied choices. Beautifully presented. Service was good although our waitress was not particularly cheerful & seemed a little rushed. Only criticisms are that white wine not chilled sufficiently & ladies room was messy with paper towels not properly cleared up & lack of loo paper in all cubicles.

We had a lovely meal with good food but it was over an hour between finishing our main course and the plates being cleared our next order taken and it was delivered. We even had to stop a waiter and ask that our table be cleared

Very good ambience, food excellent, service very professional, expensive for lunch time dining. Prices OK for an evening meal over 3/4 hours, but for a lunch time, prices and choices could be different. Would certainly go there again and recommend to others.
