Welcome to The William Bray

Welcome to The William Bray, a recently renovated, contemporary British bar and restaurant in the heart of Shere, one of Surrey’s prettiest villages, situated just off the A25 between Dorking and Guildford.

Named after the C18th. Lord of the Manor of Shere, we are committed to offering only great quality, locally-sourced, seasonal food and drink whenever possible (you could walk to quite a few of our suppliers from the bar).

We are open between 11am and 11pm every day of the week, offering classic British cooking in a modern setting with a traditional bar, attractive garden and terrace overlooking the village. We have ample parking for cars, bicycles and horses. Children welcome, dogs welcome in the bar and outdoor areas.

Christmas at the William Bray

“This substantial Edwardian pub in the centre of Shere is a great local asset....all is busy, convivial and unreservedly good humoured. A crowd-pleasing fashionable menu offers pub classics such as shepherd’s pie or a good burger alongside black bream with salsa verde and panna cotta with blackberry sorbet.”
