Great food and service but please could you provide more vegetarian options
Not keen on the Sunday veggie option... a tart full of mainly half cooked onions and tomatoes

With a long history on the site as a farm then a beer house, The Mint near Banstead continues its rural heritage of serving traditional British food. Nestled in a lush country setting, the views can be enjoyed from the pretty al fresco beer garden, and the building itself is fittingly rustic for the location, with chunky oak beams and a welcoming hearth-fire.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Mint menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Mint ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Mint is 6 minutes’ drive from Banstead, but is remote and peaceful.

    Easy booking on line. Car parking area with lots of spaces. Restaurant seats not great as some are stained. Varied choice on the menu with a couple of specials. Food very good and staff friendly.

    The Mint was a big let down in terms of service. May be too few staff (4) serving the tables and the bar counter. Had to wait 20 minutes after finishing our meal for anybody to come around and take an order for the dessert. At the end i went to the counter and took a dessert menu myself, after which we waited another 15 minutes to place the order, by which time we got really fed up and went straight to the cashier to pay and off we went. This extremely slowness ruined what was otherwise a decent meal. Don't think we will ever go there again.

    The restaurant itself is pleasant and the food quite good but the service was extremely slow. When I say extremely, I mean extremely. We were a party of just three and the restaurant was less than half full.

  • (((** 5 October 2018 by Anne from Carshalton

    Welcoming and friendly. Electronic booking system was down, so they couldn't check whether we had booked or not (which we had). Restaurant was not very busy. Two young men serving were nice and helpful, but writing orders down on old till receipts (recycling??). As mentioned in many reviews, service was very slow, but the found was tasty when it came. Getting the right cutlery for each course e.g. soup, was a bit frustrating.

    Waited an hour and a half for food as hand held device did not work and food order didn’t go through. No one came to check during that time so it was only when we asked where the food was, that they redid the order.
    Chicken pie dry no sauce inside. Vegetable slimy wet cabbage on side of plate look digusting.
    Cappuccino watery and tasteless
    SO disappointed.
