Red LionThe Green
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Believed to have been a pub since the beginning of the 20th Century, but parts are somewhat older, the Red Lion has a traditional appearance facing the pretty village green. Outside tables at the front enable a peaceful weekend afternoon to be whiled away watching cricket, whilst a more secluded, well kept, garden at the rear is ideal for drinks on a summer evening. Permanent heated umbrellas here are provided for smokers. The front door opens into the small bar - this and the room to the left are for drinking, and dogs are welcome here. Through an archway the rooms to the right are a conversion of old outbuildings and comprise a 40-seater restaurant, and beyond this is a small function room which doubles as an overflow to the restaurant. Food is well regarded locally and is available at all sessions apart from winter Sunday evenings (when closing is 20.00), and it is wise to book for the restaurant, especially for Sunday lunch. This is a friendly place whose staff are anxious to please. The single guest beer is supplied from the Punch lists, and can be regional beers from anywhere. Shamley Green is well served by buses, which stop outside the Red Lion. During the day there are 3 per hour to Guildford and Cranleigh, reducing to hourly on Sundays and during the evenings.
