Description: Nearly everybody you talk to knows The Onslow Arms and has fond memories of visits over the years. Undergoing a thorough refurbishment of the building in 2011, we lovingly restored the old girl back to her former glory and she has been going from strength to strength ever since! A smart community pub with a great range of beers and fresh food, where drinkers and eaters alike are looked after with the same friendly and professional service. We’re also hoping that those living further afield will visit us too, either•On foot across gorgeous Surrey countryside•By bike having negotiated Newland’s Corner•By train, direct line from Waterloo at Clandon Station 200 yds away•By car – extensive car parkingWith 11 National Trust properties within 10 miles, make it a day out with lunch or dinner at The Onslow Arms!

A return visit for us on a quietish Monday in October for a lunchtime snack, Although there were slightly fewer choices than previously listed on the sandwich menu, I chose my usual favourite of chicken and bacon, together with chips. The sandwich was quite outstanding and the chips beyond superb! One of my best pub lunches ever, and a really filling meal.

In all the years that I've eaten at the Onlsow Arms, and it's sister pub, The Three Horseshoes in Laleham, I have never ever had a bad meal or bad service. These pubs really do set the gold-standard for food, comfort and service whether you have a lunchtime snack or main evening meal.

Well done to the chefs, staff and owners of these great pubs.

Attentive staff, lovely building, good choice from the menu... a welcome and relaxing couple of hours in a great Surrey pub. Go there after visiting Clandon or Hatchlands Park.

Food and service good in a nice environment and local. Great for those occasions when you want a little more than pub grub.

My first time eating at the Onslow Arms and will definitely come back again! The food was delicious (especially the rump steak) and our time was made all the more personal thanks to our wonderful waitress Heather, who despite being busy was very personable and efficient, even cracking jokes and recommending what we should have.
Many thanks to Heather and the team at the Onslow, we had a fabulous evening!

This is an attractive and extremely popular local pub / restaurant.Staff are friendly and efficient and the prices are reasonable. So why only three stars? The food is OK but nothing very special; no better than plenty of gastro pubs in this area. My sea bass was overcooked and the crispy skin was soggy because of the wet vegetables poured over it. Ice cream was rock-solid straight from the freezer. The main problem is the noise; we really could not hear each other speak. Have been two or three times before but don't think we'll bother again, even though it is very convenient for us.
