An extraordinary refurbished cattle barn in Godalming, The Refectory is a sophisticated gastro-pub from award-winning pub group, Brunning & Price. High-vaulted Tudor beams and rustic wooden furniture set the tone for refined pub dining, while there’s also an expansive al fresco dining area.

A delicate poached chicken salad and a creamy prawn and spinach linguine are among light bites on The Refectory menu, while wholesome mains include sumptuous roasted pork fillet stuffed with spinach, chorizo, smoked cheese and pine nuts, and served with confit potato and roasted peppers. There are also crowd-pleasing classics like hearty beef, ale and mushroom pie, while chocolate pecan banana brownie makes an enticing dessert.

The spacious barn interior at The Refectory in Godalming creates a charming rustic ambience with warm terracotta tiles, higgledy-piggledy ceiling beams and attractive local artwork. A sophisticated selection of wines and smooth cask ales feature, and can be enjoyed al fresco beneath fragrant hanging baskets.

The Refectory is a 5-minute drive from Godalming Station, lying on the edge of the village of Milford.

    Two of us thought the pork rib starter was too hot and spicy.
    Chicken main a little dry. Pie was good, and also the lamb shanks good.

    I used to be based at Secretts (Cathie's Gardening School) so the Refectory has become our favourite dining experience, particularly the salads for me. I had the hallumi yesterday! Always made to feel welcome, lovely atmosphere and I have to say the gardens have greatly improved! I also love the vouchers and look forward to using them next time.
