Such a shame that the food is now cheesy rubbish. Loved coming here but the food is now horrible so will be taking our custom elsewhere. Employ a new chef and we will be back!

The Pilgrim Pub is situated on the outskirts of Dorking Town right next to Dorking West Station. This pub sells real ale with a choise and the food is outstanding with the roast lambs on Sundays plus the homemade desserts! The staff here are always friendly and always greet you with a warm welcomeBooking is advised at all times as with a small resturant it gets busy quickly.
