Freshly prepared, carefully sourced

The Bray is one of the best and most popular gastro pubs in Surrey

We’re delighted to announce The Bray is now under new, independent family management with an amazing head chef (formally the number 2 in the kitchen at the renowned Onslow Arms, Clandon) and a team of professional, friendly staff to ensure our guests receive our very best attention.

We’re all about keeping things local and go out of our way to source as many ingredients as we can from the surrounding area – Silent Pool Gin, locally baked bread, poultry and game, Surrey Hills ales, Albury vineyards revered sparkling wine to name but just a few!

We serve delicious, freshly prepared food all day every day, perfect for a snack, sandwich, business lunch or of course dinner. Alongside our main menu, with dishes which change by season and we feature a weekday 2 or 3 course set menu from lunchtime into the evening. Our Sunday roast lunches are already becoming legendary! Keep an eye out for afternoon tea, featured gins and lots more…

Enjoy dining ‘al fresco’ on sunny days and relax in our garden and decked seating area, perfect for taking in the views of the Surrey Hills or cosy up beside the log burning fire when it’s chilly.

We are open daily from 11am for fresh ground coffee, herbal teas, light snacks and early drinks, right the way through to 11pm. The kitchen is open all day everyday til 10pm (9pm Sundays).

Cask condition ales, a range of chilled lagers and selected wines from around the world sit comfortably alongside a big range of non alcoholic drinks. Look out for featured cocktails shaken and stirred throughout the week!

We love families and a Kids menu is available everyday; board games and sketchers are always close by to keep the littles entertained

‘’Friendly dogs’’ are always welcome!!

Pop in when out walking or cycling the beautiful Surrey Hills or just use us as a base – start with coffee and finish (after the marathon!) with a well earned sticky toffee pud!  There’s a big customer car park adjacent to our garden
