Have eaten here before, so organised a family get together as this is about half way between London and the south coast. We booked for a Friday lunch time, the place was packed and parking was a problem with having to park in the tiny road! Worth noting, get there early to get in the car park! The service and... More

Red Mist pubs have a deservedly high reputation and the Stag does not disappoint. Good ales and a continually changing high quality menu. The pub has a great atmosphere and lovely outside area beside the Wey.

A group of us visited The Stag for a late lunch after walking at Winkworth Arboretum in the morning. We had booked a table fortunately as the restaurant was very busy. The choice of food was good. The food and service was excellent. A shame I was driving as there seemed to be a good choice of bitters too.

We have visited this pub on several occasions. Sadly today was not a great visit Firstly we were charged for the smallest bowl of peanuts ever (it was so small there were only a few actual peanuts in it ... we had about 3 each! ) and which contained more dust than nuts. I could have bought a full bag... More

We visit this group regularly, Red Mist Leisure, and The Stag on the River is another excellent venue. An early parking of the car and an enjoyable 4 mile circular walk before heading back for a well-earned cold beer. The beer choice in all these venues is first class; world beer, craft beer as well as local real ales. The... More

Lovely setting & great food with attentive service. Whilst menu not extensive there was enough choices for us for starters, mains & deserts. And a good wine list too. And all very reasonably priced. Will definitely visit again when passing by.

Myself and a colleague needed a couple of rooms for one night. He had a mate who knew this place and we were struggling to get a room in Guildford at a decent hotel (Guildford is strangely bereft of decent hotels!) We were in the Harbour for the next night with a crew of four so chose this quirky pub... More

Lovely setting on the river. The popularity of this pub is due to both its setting and the food. There is a good choice on the menu and regular specials and are a notch above standard pop food. Great for lunch as well as dinner.

Excellent meal, good service, notwithstanding a problem with our order - which, to their credit, was handled very well. Would go back there again.
