The oldest pub in the village of Shalford, The Seahorse was converted to an alehouse in the mid-18th century. Today, it is a refurbished gastro pub serving modern British fare with a Mediterranean touch. Inside, exposed wooden beams on the ceilings, leather armchairs, a bar area & roaring fireplaces provide a homey atmosphere to enjoy a drink or a traditional Sunday roast.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Seahorse 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 Seahorse bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and eclectic sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Seahorse in Surrey is a 9-minute walk from Shalford Railway Station.

    Lovely atmosphere, delicious food!

    The service was excellent and the food was amazing. We booked a table with a 25% off the bill deal but forgot to tell them before we paid. When I mentioned it afterwards it was no effort for them to sort it out and refund the difference. Really nice atmosphere and a real mix of youngsters in the bar drinking and older people in the restaurant dining but it made our entire party feel at home.

    Had a lovely birthday meal for my Mother In Law on Sunday evening. Yes, it is a bit on the more expensive side, but the food, service and ambience were great. Our two young children were not ignored and everyone in the party had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

    Very busy so glad we had booked. Waiter was excellent and we all shared meze to begin with then had burgers. All was fine despite the fact that one of the chefs was taken ill during the evening - the manager came and apologised in advance for any delay in our order - very efficient and professional.

    I have often been to the Seahorse for lunch on a Sunday and it never fails to be very enjoyable. Even though it is usually very full, the service is quick, efficient and the staff always smiling and helpful. I look forward to many more visits.

    Good gastro pub on the outskirts of Guildford. Quite a lot of covers so on busy days/times service can be slow and the food not quite as good but we tend to go just outside typical eating hours (3pm for lunch etc) and then it's much better. Menu doesn't change much which suits us as we have a few favorites.
