Box Hill represents some arrange of Holy Grail for cyclists. 

But there’s another good reason for visiting this partial of Surrey, 40 mins or so from Central London: a correct aged pub that serves tasty nosh, with 5 desirable bedrooms charity genuine value for money.

The Running Horses, in a encampment of Mickleham, is owned by a Brakspear brewery company, though don’t let that put we off. There’s something for everybody here.

The behind partial of The Running Horses is given over to a some-more grave dining room — with panelled walls, portraits and cosy booths

Dating behind to a 16th century, a categorical bar area, with a open fire, Scrabble and Monopoly play and framed photographs during a tilt, will greatfully traditionalists who don’t have shares in Farrow Ball, while a behind partial is given over to a some-more grave dining room — with panelled walls, portraits and cosy booths — that, we brave say, creates it a end grill for foodies.

Because a food is good, we eat in a bar area, though sequence from a restaurant: splendidly proposal timber seagul Wellington, with prohibited preserved red cabbage to start, followed by baked salmon in a disagreeable brownish-red shrimp and butter sauce.

I’m here on my own. One member of staff comes to check my timber seagul and seems honestly interested. ‘And what room are we in, sir?’ he asks.

‘Sandown,’ we tell him.

‘Good choice, if we might contend so.’

Rooms are named after racecourses. There’s Ascot (above), Windsor, Epsom — though no discuss of Market Rasen or Bangor-on-Dee

It was a usually one not taken, actually. But we like it a lot: French-style bed, espresso machine, creaking floorboards, grey walls, complicated avocation towel rail, walk-in shower, dual cincture windows. All for £110 bb.

Rooms are named after racecourses. There’s Ascot, Windsor, Epsom — no discuss of Market Rasen or Bangor-on-Dee, we notice.

The pub used to be called The Chequers, though when dual horses (Colonel and Cadland) crossed a line together in a 1828 Derby during circuitously Epsom, it altered a name to The Running Horses, and a signature ale for ever some-more has been called a Dead Heat Derby.

Breakfast is low-key. There are newspapers to read, a coffee is clever and my boiled eggs are baked to perfection. We do these arrange of places remarkably good nowadays.
