68 /100 OLD SCOTLAND FARM, STAPLE LANE
“A very rustic place down a dirt road. No real bar, just a place to get beers from the cask for take away or drinking in. We sat outside in the wind and sun and enjoyed a few half pints in nature. Very nice. 3 nice beers were on when we visited, rather cheap. It is quite a place to find, but popular with cyclists and definitely a good place to stop if you are in the are.“

50 /100 SHERE LANE,
“OK so that new unrated fetaure has alerted me to a local pub I hadn't rated. The reason being that I didn't bother looking for it. Took a Sunday trip to Shere and this appeared the best option of the two pubs in the village. It goes for gastro pub and the food is decent enough. However the beer options were average at best - Surrey Hills Shere Drop being the only non-macro option. Got pretty busy and they'd crammed in the tables. Not a pub I'd go out of my way to visit and next time I'm is Shere I'll give the other pub a chance.“

76 /100 OLD SCOTLAND FARM, STAPLE LANE
“Small brewery just in the middle of Surrey Hills. This old farm is not easy to find but it’s an advantage for me. A few beers on tap, I tried Hop Troll IPA, it was fresh, hoppy and tasty. Some sitting space outside with charming brewery and green neighbourhood view. Hospitable and talkative owner.“

62 /100 OLD SCOTLAND FARM, STAPLE LANE
“Located down an old farm track (4WD vehicle desirable but not essential) we visited the brewery on the afternoon of Saturday 7th June 2014. The brewery itself takes up most of the space but there is a small tap room (in a very loose sense) in the far right corner as you enter. They were serving 5 of their beers straight from the cask for sale in the form of 2 or 4 pint plastic bottles. There were also some 9 pint mini kegs for sale. On this visit Falls Gold, AONB, Black Troll, Evolution #4 and The Source were all on offer. They didn’t have any bottled beers available although they have bottled in the past. Outside there are a few benches where you can grab one of their beers by the pint or half and have a drink if you want. A couple of cyclists were taking on liquid refreshments whilst we were there. £2.40 a pint - pretty decent vfm but as you would hope at the source. There’s also a brewery shop in the outbuilding opposite which I think was selling branded glasses and maybe T-Shirts but time was against us and we didn’t pop in. I got chatting to the head brewer whilst I was there, as it was he who served me. He gave me samples of the various beers that were available and told me how the next new beer would feature new world hops which should be arriving soon. Fair play to Tillingbourne they do throw a load of hops into their beers comapred to many regional start ups of this size, lots of zesty amarillo in the #4. Nice people, nice setting, decent brews. Not a go to but if you’re in the area well worth stopping by - I shall return in a few months for their next new beer. It’s not too far off the A25 about 5 or so miles from Guildford.“
