The surrounding rolling fields and country lane belie the fact that The Hogs Lodge is just a stone's throw from the A3. The pub and restaurant blend into one another, with tables and chairs being mixed with big comfy leather sofas. The result is at once informal and inviting, and the good mix of people enjoying themselves creates a delightfully buzzy and friendly atmosphere, particularly at the quiz nights every Tuesday. The charming beer garden is perfect for alfresco dining when the weather plays ball, and the restaurant itself can be reserved for private functions.

On the cold night of our visit, and once we'd had a good look through the menu and changed our minds several times, we were seated in the restaurant and pointed toward the specials board, which only offered more temptation. Eventually the homemade soup of the day, served with crusty bread, won my affections, while the sharing platter - incorporating ribs, onion rings and garlic bread - is perfect if hunger has got the better of you. The speciality midweek and Sunday carvery - offering two meats plus a vegetarian option - is served with all of the trimmings, while liver and bacon in red wine and the homemade chicken and bacon roly poly, along with various steaks, provide more than enough choice.

Everything we tried was full of fresh, clear flavours, which confirmed the use of only quality ingredients and, after my companion's bangers and mash, she was smiling from ear to ear. Even with no room left, the tempting mix of traditional comfort puddings and contemporary desserts, like homemade cheesecake and crumble, were too difficult to resist. We washed everything down with a pint of Fuller's London Pride and relaxed.

From July 2009, a new 20-bedroomed hotel will be open for business on The Hog's Lodge site. Attached to the pub, it will provide bed and breakfast, a brand new outdoor play area for the kids and comfortable bedrooms for guests - details coming soon to the Fuller's website - www.fullers.co.uk.
