Hi, can anyone recommend a decent pub in the area for sunday lunch (or just does good food)? Ideally one with a play area, even better if it's by the river!
TIA smile

The duke of cumberland in henley, w sussex, just before midhurst does the most amazing roast i have ever had. Besutiful garden, divine, yorkshire ouddings made with sparkling water. Very steep parking though but would go there again in a nanosecond,

The Stag in Eashing is nice specially outdoors by the stream.

Any updates on pubs in this area. WE are going to Guildford on Sunday for daughters gymnastics competition and want to find somewhere for lunch.

They are lovely! I've just had a little look as well. I will look out for you when I'm there; if you don't like the look of us just deny all knowledge grin

Cosette Tue 21-Jul-09 22:39:49

had a look at your profile pics, and what a striking family you are - gorgeous kids..

i am easy to spot at events like that, i have 4 v blonde kids in tow, one of them in a wheelchair grin

Cosette Tue 21-Jul-09 16:52:03

ooh yes, had forgotten about that, I went a few years back and it was quite good. Will probably try fit in a visit.

blush have just noticed that you did actually say "that thai festival" for me to respond "is that the..." etc
I apologise, I really shouldn't be allowed out come on here without a chaperone.

parachutes Tue 21-Jul-09 16:43:47

I might give it a go then! We really do need that mn signal don't we.

lou33 Tue 21-Jul-09 16:41:44

yes thats it, only on every other year

i like going to it, have been every time it's on since i moved here

parachutes Tue 21-Jul-09 16:36:41

Is that the Thai festival? I've seen the notices about it but had forgotten. Are they worth going to?

lou33 Tue 21-Jul-09 15:11:27


will you be going to the thai festival at secretts?

parachutes Tue 21-Jul-09 13:11:44

I can think of a few but I'd only end up getting myself into trouble grin

Cosette Tue 21-Jul-09 12:53:36

our paths may well cross! We should have a secret mn signal grin.

parachutes Tue 21-Jul-09 11:04:49

hiya, thanks for all the suggestions.
I think it's my duty to work my way through all of them and report back...I may be some time.

lou33 Mon 20-Jul-09 20:28:39

yes i quite like seeing them too wink

i walked right into the middle of an exercise by the atlantic wall a couple of weeks ago

Cosette Mon 20-Jul-09 20:18:35

Hankley is great, and DS loves seeing the 'shoulders' and the Chinooks that regularly fly over. I have inadvertently sauntered through a number of exercises complete with buggy and 2 mad dogs, but they don't seem to mind.

lou33 Mon 20-Jul-09 19:46:52

i was going to say about the one in thursley, tho i have never eaten in it, i have a friend who lives in the street, and he says its v nice

and there is also a park a couple of mins walk away

and hankley common isnt far to catch a view of soldiers on exercise

Cosette Mon 20-Jul-09 19:39:11

not far from me then, though I am the other side of the A3 from you. I was at the White Lion recently too, but not to eat. They do have a big garden out the back. I seem to have been in a fair few of the local pubs in the last few weeks blush. The Three Horseshoes at Thursley is very nice too!

lou33 Mon 20-Jul-09 19:31:11

oh i think the white lion in milford is meant to be ok too, though i havent eaten there myself

lou33 Mon 20-Jul-09 19:30:35

i am not far from secretts, the other side of godalming to farncombe

Cosette Mon 20-Jul-09 19:29:45

the squirrel is about 5 mins for me, via a country road and the Withies also about 15 mins, but I tend to go down the A3 and off through Compton. I used to live in Farncombe, and the Withies was (just about) walking distance - bliss.

lou33 Mon 20-Jul-09 19:25:08

ah i meant teh squirrel when i talk about rooms

yes i like the withies, you can tell its a good place by how many cars are parked there on a weekend

the squirrel is only one junction away from me on the a3, the withies takes about 15 mins going through godalming, for me
