The food was fine as usual but the service a disgrace. Our order was forgotten by the young waitress, who's apology " people make mistakes" was down right rude. Also " we are not usually busy on Tuesday's" was hardly relevant. Ruined the meal. Visited The Surprise - Geronimo Inns on 2017-12-12

Disappointing visit following a recent good visit. A table opposite the bar meant you felt you were in a corridor, not helped by first the delivery man and then a large wedding group who took over the bar. Every time members of the wedding group went outside for a cigarette a blast of cold air came into the bar. The young lady who served us was excellent. We took an elderly friend from a nearby care home. She is hard of hearing so it made conversation difficult. However she enjoyed her lunch which was the most important thing.

Pretty poor standard of service from both female waitresses, not really keen to please at all, My friends venison was very unevenly cooked - middle was raw. Waitress was slow to respond to our request for the venison to be cooked for a couple of mins on either side. Disappointing experience. Visited The Surprise - Geronimo Inns on 2017-11-25

The food and drink were both delicious, as it always is and the staff were friendly and welcoming. However the time we had to wait for each course was unacceptable and one of our first course was the wrong dish and it's replacement (the partridge salad), which I have ordered before was clearly made up of whatever fruit/leaves were left.

Really disappointing. As a regular in the pub for both drinks and meals, and having recommended it to many others, our experience led me to cancelling our reservation for this evening. Lack of specials on the board at 7.30 indicated all was not as it should have been, then we were told there would be a min 20 minute delay for taking orders, then a 5 minute delay, with confusion as to whether there had been a power cut or possibly the chef had not arrived. The waitress was very pleasant and did what she could. When the food came it was poor in terms of quality and presentation. My steak was almost cold, average in terms of taste and undercooked however I didn't complain because by that stage I wanted to pay and leave. What happened to the excellent cooking we experienced in the summer and early autumn? If we had been told that there was no way to deliver a high quality meal because of elements beyond your control we would have accepted that as an unfortunate event and I would have kept the booking for this evening.

Completely lacking in atmosphere. Staff were friendly but very amateurish. Odd table in a room on its own. Restaurant ran out of half the dishes. Food was decidedly average. And we were thrown out at 11 with the warning that it was illegal for us to stay. Thankfully the company was superb. But otherwise a let down Visited The Surprise - Geronimo Inns on 2017-10-27

Went here on Thursday. Had booked for 8.30pm but arrived an hour early. Bar was pretty busy but we were greeted by a very friendly waitress (unfortunately I've forgotten her name) who showed us to a table upstairs. This was an attractive room and as it was early, we, we had a choice of tables. The food was excellent and the service was extremely professional and attentive.It was refreshing to be attended to by someone who clearly enjoyed her job and took a pride in it. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to others. I should add that as this was Chelsea Flower Show week, the restaurant became quite busy fairly quickly and everybody else was given prompt and super efficient service. Full marks to the chefs for keeping on top of things. Visited The Surprise - Geronimo Inns on 2017-05-25

The food was good. However I think the sunday roast chicken for two served with leaves and chips was on the expensive side for what we had. The "leaves" were just a garnish and we had to order a side dish of vegetables to pad it out. Dessert was excellent. The man serving us was either ill or very high.

Hello, my entree (which was pigeon) was cold as though it had been waiting a while as the other dished were prepared. The meal was otherwise fine. The service was poor though. The staff did not wish us merry christmas on arrival although it was Christmas day and did not top up wines, or water or offer us coffee and they generally were scarce and absent. They forgot to serve the mince pies which were advertised as part of the menu and then became rude when we left less than the usual sized rip. they ended with throwing the tip back at us and telling us to keep the money - simply astonishing. It soured the entire experience. I am a regular diner at The Surprise and I am now reluctant to return. Robyn Chatwood Visited The Surprise - Geronimo Inns on 2016-12-25

Lovely relaxed Sunday lunch. Enjoyed being in the main bar area downstairs. We would have liked more non-meat options or more roast options for one...many of your Sunday lunch options were for 2 people. One of us was vegetarian and we were only 2 people. However lovely ambience and food. Visited The Surprise - Geronimo Inns on 2016-12-04

Despite booking a table online there was no table available. After a reshuffle we finally had a table. We asked to slow down our mains but they came straight after entree. Both steaks were overlooked and the cheese board had only had block of cheese! Disappointing Visited The Surprise - Geronimo Inns on 2016-11-26

Our experience was fairly negative. We made a reservation and when we arrived they told us they didn't have our table. For the record, we had a confirmation of our reservation in an email. They eventualy gave us the worst table in a different room near the emergency exit, remote and hidden from the rest of the tables in spite of having available tables in the main area that were not used later on that evening. The behaviour was in general rude and disagreeable and only improve a bit as we were about to finish out dinner. Visited The Surprise - Geronimo Inns on 2016-11-12

I sent this directly to your restaurant; I am a bit of a foody most of my life and as I get older less and less impresses me about professional cooking and the associated ‘service’. I have been moved however in my Saturday morning fug to congratulate you and your colleagues on the ‘Surprise Experience’, not only your cooking but the superb quirky people front of house meaning Freddie, (not currently eating meat but superb recommendation of wine), and the nice lady, ‘The Blond’ whose name I didn’t catch, (who is eating meat and said “ignore Freddie, try this”) A lovely place from the outside so understated and a real Feng Shui, whatever the hell that means when you walk in. I had ‘The Blonds’ recommendation of smoked duck’s liver superb, reminded me of foi gras I had years and years ago in a Flemish restaurant in Antwerp, using Goose liver of course. The subtly of the smoked liver was superb plus the cooking, timing is of the essence here and this was the business. I followed with the ‘Chicken Kiev’ with Guinea Fowl, not taken by my friend for political reasons who ate, ‘the best fish I have had in a very long time”, scallops and monkfish. The Kiev was not the dried up fried in breadcrumbs you normally get, it was moist and absolutely delicious, perfect accompaniments and quantity. Sauces were superb, light exquisite flavors and balanced with the food, I had a supplement of roast baby parsnips beautiful, recommended by Freddie. Visited The Surprise - Geronimo Inns on 2016-10-14

I haven't been to the pub for a while and was pleasantly surprised with the food. Fantastic menu choice with seasonal dishes. I had the Guinea Fowl Kiev which was fantastic. The only complaint we would have is that the burger was tepid. Will definitely come back again soon. Visited The Surprise - Geronimo Inns on 2016-10-13

Lovely pub, great food, good service. This is the gist of it, but reviews are apparently required to have at least thirty words. Seems kinda dumb. Are we there yet? Visited The Surprise - Geronimo Inns on 2016-06-25
