Large, traditionally styled Fuller’s pub in the centre of Surbiton, just by the railway station.
The dark wooden bar is on the left as you enter the pub, with seating areas to the right, behind and in the front windows. The pub furniture is all wooden too with mainly wooden floors.
The usual Fuller’s favourite ales are on offer in the Surbiton Flyer. The Wild River tasted good on my last visit and I did see an HSB hand pump at the end of the bar. There appear to be no guest beers that grace some other Fuller’s pubs. The beer is on the pricier side, but you may expect that given it’s affluent suburban location.
Food is available lunchtime and evenings during the week, and all day at weekends. I’ve not eaten here though. I can tell you that there are no pies on the menu.
Intriguingly a piano sits almost in the centre of the pub – I don’t know if there is live music though.
No gardens here – being in a busy shopping street, but there are a couple of tables outside near the entrance to the station.
Wi-fi is available – ask at the bar for the code.
A close look at the pub sign shows that it features a type of streamlined steam train that used to be seen on the east coast main line (London to Newcastle and Edinburgh), not on the southern lines out of London. Is this just an inaccuracy, or is it a reference to the art-deco period?
