By no means a run of the mill 'gastropub', the experience is equally rewarding whether you've popped in for a quick lunch time snack or a full 3-course meal with the family, there is something for everybody at this excellent Surrey country pub. With plenty of outside seating for al fresco dining in warmer weather and a roaring log fire during the winter, the Inn at Maybury's inviting ambience is an immediate mood lifter.
The eye for quality extends to the menu which uses market fresh seasonal ingredients and offers customers plenty of variety. You could begin with a sticky sharing platter of pork ribs and watermelon, classic Mediterranean chicken and chorizo spiedini, or delicious lamb koftas and flatbreads. Alternatively opt for individual starters of button mushroom bourguignon with stirata Romana rustic bread or homemade pork rilette with pear, balsamic and date chutney and toast.
The à la carte offers a range of pizzas, pastas and salads which extend well beyond the usual margherita or lasagna. So, take your pick from a stone-baked piccante pizza topped with pepperoni, chorizo, tomato and jalapenos, mouthwatering macaroni with smoked haddock, spinach and Applewood Cheddar or salad of chicken with avocado, melon, pomegranate, feta, chilli, cilantro and lime aioli.

Come in, read the papers with a pint of your favourite beer at hand, or give yourself the perfect pick-up with a bloody Mary while you unwind in the company of family and friends.
To finish, consider tempting dessert of banoffee pie; warm brownie with vanilla ice cream and dark chocolate sauce; apple and blackcurrant crumble with vanilla custard or limoncello posset with langues de chat biscuits. Alternatively, you could choose the cheese plate with delicious Colliers Cheddar, camembert and gorgonzola.

REVIEWS OF The Inn at Maybury
Helen (12 June 2010)
My husband and myself and 2 of our friends recently ate at the Inn, coming from Aus we were unsure of what to expect from an English pub. We were pleasantly suprised. The food was great, and the menu well explained by our waiter Rory, excellant service all round. So good in fact we went back for another meal after returning for our trip around Europe. Keep up the good work guys - you were all great.
Sandy (27 April 2010)
Ate at the Maybury last week for the first time in several years - wow! What an improvement. Interior is lovely; staff very friendly and attentive; easy parking and most important of all, the food was really very good! Well presented, well cooked and lots of choice. In this culinary wasteland that is Woking, this is a great find. We will definitely go again.
