Review on The Withies Inn
Hugh and Brian Thomas have spent a lot of time and energy maintaining The Withies Inn, a prosperous sixteenth-century pub in the tiny hamlet of Compton in the Surrey Hills. In particular they have made the gardens into something quite special, with flower borders ablaze with colour, weeping willows providing shade and tables in the shade of old apples trees. When the weather's fine you can eat on the crazy-paved terrace or under an arbour of creeper-entwined trellises.
Venture inside and you will find a bar that is brimming with character, low beams, old carved panels and even an Art Nouveau settle. Well-kept real ales and honest pub grub (Cumberland sausages with mash et. al.) are the order of the day in this part of the pub.
The separate restaurant offers food that is a touch more ambitious, ranging from beef Wellington to chicken Kiev, with the bonus of seasonal specialities like asparagus and wild duck.
