The Old Bear- Cobham

For my Dad’s birthday we ventured into Surrey to The Old Bear in Cobham. This is a quintessential old fashioned country pub, but with a modern dining room attached which is a real delight.

Booking is essential at the weekends, as it is packed full of locals from the area wishing to eat and socialise; choosing either from the bar menu or a la carte in the dining room, both menus of which were created by head chef Nathan Green who has trained under Gordon Ramsey and other Michelin Star Chefs.

For my starter I had country terrine, with fruit chutney on toast; which was absolutely delicious! This was followed by lamb kofte (a special treat sent with compliments from the chef!) which was equally as tasty. For my main meal, I had fillet steak (which melted in the mouth!) and triple cooked country chips with watercress salad which I thoroughly enjoyed. After all of this I was unable to move let alone even think about a pudding, but from what I saw being served to the other tables- it didn’t look like they’d disappoint!

The Old Bear certainly isn’t just ‘pub grub’ so expect suitable Cobham prices to be attached, however, for a special occasion I would go back here in an instant! The staff at The Old Bear are extremely friendly and attentive making it a fantastic Modern- British dining experience in beautiful surroundings.
