Latest reviews from Frimley Green

“01/02/17. A colleague recommends this place over the Rose & Thistle so thought I’d give it a try. He’s in his early twenties, I must have been the only non-APP. Would bring someone here who wanted to experience a old fashioned local. Smarter on the outside - an attractive Morland plaque in one wall. Inside it’s dark wood, terracotta sofas, pretty dark. Appears to have been last decorated in the 70’s as opposed to being faux traditional. A darkened and unused rear restaurant area. Semi-conservative beer range; four Greene King/Morland beers (one a house beer) plus the two guests which I had. Food was popular. Can see why my colleague likes it - would pop in for a relaxed drink again.“

“Have been back to this pubs after a gap of a couple of years. The bar food is pretty good but was put off by a visit for my Mother’s birthday on which a couple of us had to send our food back as it was inedible - roast beef like leather. The range of craft\US beers is probably the best in the area, but that is one guest keg and then bottles/cans. The hand pump selection seems to be pretty conservative and I don’t think they’ve ever had more than 3 of the pumps on when I’ve been in. I’ve really only ever been in on a weekday lunchtime when it’s been empty, but am told by a collegue that it’s busy on a Friday/weekend. What I would say though is 10/10 for the service, as staff have always been extremely helpful and chatty. They seek to acknowledge that their beers can be pricey (i.e nearly a fiver for a can of Founders), by having a can of the week and also £1 off a pint promotions at certain times. I’m basically going to rotate between this place and the Prince of Wales in Farnborough, the former having some more interesting craft options, but the latter being a better option for guest beers.“

“Located between Frimley and (closer to) Frimley Green the Old Wheatsheaf is a traditional boozer tied to the GK estate. I’ve drank in here a couple of times, ordinarily on the way to the darts at the Lakeside. 4 or 5 GK family offerings, plus the occasional guest - from Green Jack on my last visit, beers have always been in decent enough condition. Trad interior, a little on the dark side and lacking natural light, the building probably dates from the late ’20’s/early 30’s. Local clientele, decent enough service. The Rose and Thistle just up the road (5 mins walk) offers a much better beer range so if you have limited time in the area skip here for there!!!“

“Never thought about rating this place before, this is mainly a Greene King pub. It has been known for the two guest beers to be part of the Greene King estate. However it is a well clean and maintained public house.“

“Been in here lots of time over the years, The Rose and Thistle to me is good value for food and service. However have to agree it is annoying to go in their sometimes and find that some pumps are not on.“

“Medium to large sized pub overlooking Frimley Green. U-shaped building, formerly L-shaped with a conservatory type extension to the left hand side as you enter. GBG listed for the last few years. 8 hand pumps but on my half dozen visits here I can never remember more than 5 actually being occupied. The classic ’coming soon’ a la JDW signs seem ever present here! On my most recent visit - 05/01/13 cask beers were available from Sharps x2, Bristol Beer Factory and Leeds. A few foreign taps and bottles, whilst common and not too exciting, make for a bit more variety. Service was decent, atmposphere OK - a bit on the empty side and quite a big pub to boot! Had the Braised Ox cheek pie and mash for dinner which was pretty good. All the food my friends ordered was also well presented and tasty. Dog friendly, dartboards in situ. Certainly the best pub for good and varied beer in the area.“
