Organised a birthday lunch for 4 people. On one of the last days of summer our table was outside on the terrace. Extremely friendly and efficient staff complemented the excellent food and wine. Will definitely return in the near future.

Thank you for your comments David, we're pleased you enjoyed your meal with us and apologies if we were too slow to take your food orders and will ensure we work on this in the future however we do look to offer a relaxing dining experience overall rather than rush the service as you have the table for the lunch or dinner service in full.

Fabulous dining experience in the garden. Had the lunch set menu which was good but would have liked a bit more choice options. Found it quite limited and disappointing that you still have to pay for extras like chips and veg.

Many thanks Linda for your review, we're pleased you enjoying your dining experience with us. We appreciate your comments on the lunchtime special menu, this is changed daily/weekly to offer different choices and does include full dishes plus we do have the full a la carte menu available as well so hope these offer good options for all diners.

Very tasty, well presented food that’s up a notch from usual pub food. A good choice of fish that was cooked well and tasty. The steaks were also delicious as were the sides. Unusually we had desserts that were beautifully presented and yummy, we will definitely go again.

Hidden gem, nestled at the back of the beautiful Chobham Common.

Since the new ownership, the RLP is my weekly stop off point after cycling through the Common, en route to or from Wentworth Club or after a ride through the forest.

Excellent choices, somewhat innovative too, for lunch or dinner, friendly and great service. Being used to excellent customer service and food at my Club, the RLP holds high standards. Best pub in the area (lived here for decades).

Only issue is they are closed Monday's!

Great experience. Duck salad was fab. Cherry brownie only had 2 pieces of cherry... So not really cherry brownie afterall. I wasn't told they'd run out of cherry ice cream until I asked. Also, we had to chase my friends wine as the waitress forgot to bring it out, but our waiter was great! Other than these hiccups, the rest of the experience was lovely. Totally recommend

Very good Covid protection measures in place during a quiet lunch time service. Tables are well spaced, staff well trained but friendly and sanitiser was available.
We ordered from the excellent value set menu and both had lovely meals. Our favourite courses were sardines on toast and the pork loin in a cider sauce. The cheese board was varied and included fruits, nuts and unusual chutney.
It is fast becoming the 'go to' choice of our friends and community for both the set and a la carte options and we wish them well in their business.

Very nicely decorated with friendly staff and a good selection of dishes on the menu. Excellent outside area.

Roasted duck was nice but the orange sauce was slightly too strong and the skin hadn't crisped up very well. For an £18 main I feel this could have been slightly better.

The dauphenoise potatoes were disappointing - no taste of cheese whatsoever and no crispiness on the top. Essentially, potatoes in a white sauce :(

For pudding I had the trio of English deserts which included a spotted dick, treacle tart and sticky toffee pudding. Sticky toffee was excellent, the treacle tart was good (not too sweet) but the spotted dick was a little tough and bland. However, it didn't mention on the menu that this desert was intended for sharing. I'd assumed that it would have been 3 small deserts but it was actually 3 full-size deserts - a bit much for one person without the knowledge this was supposed to be shared. I think I saw another table make this mistake.

On the whole, well worth a visit if you're looking for a decent dinner.

Following the refurbishment over the last year or so the pub and garden are very smart. We can thoroughly recommend the Sunday lunch and service. The quality of the beef was exceptionally good. The atmosphere made for a very pleasant dining experience.
