The Sovereigns is located on the south-western side of Woking town centre – near the Victoria Way railway bridge. It’s quite large inside with many different seating areas. There is a small ‘garden’ area outside too. The atmosphere feels really friendly and relaxed, and there is now an area of the pub where children are allowed. There is a regular pub quiz on Monday and Wednesday nights too.
Food is available until 9pm daily, and the couple of meals I’ve eaten at the Sovereigns have been tasty. Other review sites have commented that it can take a while to get served here but that has not been my experience.
The beer selection is interesting and there are 8 handpumps on the bar so there should be something that takes your fancy. If you want to try a selection then the Sovereigns also offers ‘tasting racks’ for a very reasonable price. You get three third pint glasses of three different beers in a wooden rack. Real cider is sometimes available during the summer months. The Sovereigns has been in the Good Beer Guide in recent years, but not during 2012. However the quality of the beer has taken an upswing recently.
I’d lived in Woking for six years when I first reviewed this pub a few years ago but I know people who have lived in the town for a lot longer. When I told one of them that I was planning to visit Sovereigns for their beer festival they looked a little shocked. Apparently this pub has had a bad reputation in the past and has been burnt down more than once. However I have to say that I think it’s the best pub in Woking and I have been back many, many times. See you there|
