I have been visiting this pub since the 70's and have always found it to be very good value. The current owners have made it very modern, although I see it is still doggie friendly! A very varied menu with plenty of choice either for main or starters. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking as well.

Been to the Spotted Cow several times and it's always really good. Had lunch there on the 11th of March and was really pleased with both the food and the service. I chose the pork belly in cider with black pudding and veg, it was excellent, my friends all enjoyed their meals as well. Will definitely be back.

After a little mix up on the phone regarding the pub opening hours, Suzannah could not have been more welcoming and made my wife's birthday meal a very special and enjoyable occasion. The food was excellent, service was first class and the ambiance is exactly what you would want from a Surrey country pub! We will definitely be returning...

Heard good reviews of this place,so decided to give it a go. Calamari starter was ok, a little bit rubbery, but very tasty. For mains I had the cod and chips but it was a tiny portion of Cod with the chips placed underneath it. Needless to say, not very many chips either. The Cod was also overcooked and very... More

My daughter and I have an amazing Satnav :) that led us to this little pub tucked away down country lanes next to a little stream. We popped in for a quick lunch and with no reservation on a Saturday we were seated in about 15 mins. The menu is varied and all looks scrummy. We thoroughly enjoyed our choices... More

We chose this pub as it is dog friendly and offers opportunity to go on some lovely walks nearby. The food was excellent and very tasty and reasonably priced. The menu is varied and has something for everyone's taste. The staff were very friendly + helpful.

Staying at a nearby hotel, and looking for somewhere for dinner, I found the Spotted Cow on TripAdvisor. We soon found out that the positive reviews are all justified as we enjoyed a fabulous dinner for two. I had whole sea bass and my partner girlfriend had steak. Both meals were so flavoursome and were perfectly cooked. We found all... More

Delicious food and great value. Will definitely be returning to this pub for another meal and would recommend the Scallops, Black Pudding, Bacon and Minted Pea Purée starter.
