Always good, brought visiting guests. Everyone enjoyed their meals. My pizza was slightly undercooked so the crust was all floppy but still pretty good.

Housed within a beautiful Tudor building and retaining some of its original features, The Ramblers Rest is a gastro pub with an al fresco dining area, serving modern British food in a country-style setting. The lively bar area with its exposed brick walls, wooden beams & an open fireplace, offers a homey setting for guests to enjoy a drink.

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

The Ramblers Rest in Surrey is a 12-minute drive from Chipstead Railway Station.

    An excellent all-round country pub with a great menu choice except the fact we went on a Monday and they had run out of 50% of dishes across the whole menu after a very busy weekend. Apparently Tuesday is delivery day. I will return to the pub and restaurant as it has great potential but I will not return on a Monday.

    Excellent menu range and outstanding food quality

    Have dined here many times as the food is lovely. We was disappointed as it took ages to get our food and then one had to be sent back as it was cold. But will not put us off as we love the atmosphere and food of the Ramblers Rest

    Nice atmosphere, lovely server, shame they were out of a few things on a Monday night.

    I haven't been here for a year, and was a bit disappointed with the length of time it took for service. The waitress was unaware of what beers where in stock. We ordered drinks and then food and the drinks took about 15 min to arrive. The place was not what I would call busy. The food was great, and presented well, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We just wished it wouldn't take so long to get the drinks.

    Like other Mitchell and Butler pubs in the area this place relies on location and appearance for their profits and does not really see selling good food as part of their business model. Lovely place for a drink for dog walkers. But eat at home!

  • ((((* 31 December 2016 by Simon from Sutton

    Food was good here as always. Staff seemed unusually grumpy and stressed, not towards us, but in general. Atmosphere of the restaurant area seemed a bit harassed, which I've not experienced here before. Food was delicious though!

    Not welcoming, gloomy. Opted to eat outside. Poor menu choices, over priced. Very inexperienced staff. Will not be coming here again.
