Refreshing guests with food and drink since the mid-1800s, The Shy Horse serves well-loved British pub cuisine in a countryside setting. With a pretty beer garden for al fresco dining in warmer climes, and a cosy hearth-fire for winter, The Shy Horse also values its classic and eye-catching whitewash stone and red slate exterior.
Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Shy Horse 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 Shy Horse ‘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.
Close to Chessington World of Adventure, The Shy Horse is just 4 minutes’ drive from the town of Chessington.

First of all the staff were very very busy. Did not seem to be enough of them. Apart from the chicken and mushroom pie which was good, the hunters chicken was very dry, fish and chips, fish had been cooked for too long, Soup could have been hotter. One of our group asked for just a ham sandwich. Understand that the ham and cheese melt comes in already prepared so they cut a small piece of gammon off and put in the bread. However she was charged the price for ham, egg and chips. Thought this was out of order. Will not be going back again. Staff were very nice. That was the best part.

Went for lunch on Friday, reasonably busy but the waiters were attentive and friendly. Our drinks turned up quickly and our orders taken . Only a short wait for food, we all had the fish and chips, good fish and not greasy, really tasty.

Best was the relationship- with the waitress, she was very caring about her customers. I had a starter of mushrooms. Felt that the dish had spent a period of time under the lights as there was a skin on the sauce. The Venison and Beef casserole had very little meat in it. Although the flavour was great. My wife had so called Yorkshire Puddings. These were flat and were an insult to the name. Sorry I get into trouble about my comments on Yorkshires. Dessert was good.
