Our meal was ordered and forgotten
1 hour 40mins we waited
The manager was apologetic and refunded our wine which was much appreciated but still we missed out on our starters and generally got passed having desert and coffee
So many people came in and were eating before us and not one member of staff clocked the fact that we still had no food
We all enjoyed the food once it arrived but the chips were cold and had to wait for hot chips
Really didn’t want to complain but really not a great experience

We are very sorry to hear this Jane. Please do get in touch with us at reservations@peachpubscom we would love to pick this up with you direct and have the opportunity to put this right.

Our local pub,it’s had it’s up’s and down’s ove the years but at last it seems to have found its niche. The pub is professionally run,the service impeccable and the staff always seem to go that extra mile for their customers. The food is very tasty and the menu always has “specials “ included. Overall the pub is very comfortable with all the tables observing the social distancing rules. I feel very lucky having this pub on my doorstep.

This was our second meal out since lockdown started, and didn’t compare favourably to our first on the COVID safety front.
Don’t get me wrong, if I’d eaten here before lockdown i would of rated it higher.

There was little care taken to limit staff proximity or contact, and no track and trace.
All we saw were staff playing with the thermometer that I assume was for COVID checking, not using it on patrons. No masks were worn and only one door was propped open.

The food was good. But I’d like to of seen more care taken regarding COVID safety.

The Duke of Wellington
Responded on August 3, 2020

Thank you for your feedback regarding our safety procedures. We understand how important it is for our guests & team to maintain a safe environment, now more than ever. We have implemented many new procedures to ensure our pubs are Covid-safe, some of which may not always be visible. We have a track & trace procedure, and a member of each party's details should be being taken. For an overview of the other measures in place to maintain safety, please contact us via our website. Many Thanks Bex

Nice pub in a very nice location, just the outside garden (that' very nice too) is a little bit noisy because of the main road passing by. The service was efficient and professional.
The Sunday roast was nice, also the vegan one, but I would have liked to see more vegan options on the menu.

Service was excellent but the food was a let down. They had limited choices because the two dishes that I would have chosen were not available although I was not warned when we were given the menus. I had the burger which was bland and the chips were undercooked. My wife had the chicken which was dry without any sauce. I expected more in terms of quality. The glass of red was also expensive at £8.50.

This was a birthday celebration for a party of 6. Very nice elevated table - slightly subdued lighting - a bit difficult to read the menu without a torch! However food was very good - Beef wellington special a big hit with the table - very good quality beef and perfectly cooked.Excellent service. Slightly expensive but it is Surrey and would certainly give it a strong recommendation .
