As the closest pub to Box Hill’s famous view point, The Tree is well served by a rich network of National Trust trails and is accessed from a short, pretty drive through the Surrey Hills.

The Tree’s bar is a cosy mix of alcoves and sofas, opening up into an impressive and spacious restaurant that fuses contemporary styling with stunning crushed velvet upholstery and traditional furniture. The restaurant leads out onto a beautiful secluded patio area, which by night is lit with strings of pretty lights, making it the perfect space for private functions and special occasions. Outside, there’s an extensive garden and a well-equipped children’s play area along with a free bouncy castle on weekends during the warmer months.

Since taking over The Tree in April 2017, owners Liv and Glenn have set about strengthening the pub’s local ties, as evidenced in the thoughtfully curated menu. To start, The Tree offers a classic prawn cocktail, moules marinières, breaded whitebait and soup of the day, to name just a few of the fabulous options available. Mains include beer-battered fish and thick-cut chips, and an impressive brochette of lamb or chicken, creatively served on hanging skewers and accompanied by sweet potato fries and mango chilli sauce. The Box Hill burger is nearly as tall as the landmark with which it shares its name.

The menu is extensive, changing every two to three months and caters for gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan diets. There’s a popular children’s menu, including mini burgers and breaded chicken strips, and all adult pasta options can be portioned for a child. Desserts are worth saving room for. Highlights include the elegantly served homemade Eton Mess, classic trifle, and poached pear with vanilla panna cotta and mulled wine syrup.

The local theme continues on the drinks menu, with regional brews regularly rotated into the selection of four real ales that are available on tap at any given time. You’ll also find many popular draught lagers and a wide selection of bottled beer and cider. The extensive selection of gins includes two from local distilleries – Dancing Dragontail in Dorking and Silent Pool in Guildford – as well as elderflower- and raspberry-flavoured options. All the reds, whites and rosés on the well-rounded wine list are available by the glass, so we were able to try three during our visit: a full, rich La Grupa malbec, a soft and fresh Italian Valpolicella, and a Victor Berard Chablis that delighted the palate. Rosé-lovers will be pleased with the pinot grigio blush, and Champagne is offered by the bottle, while a cute piccolo Prosecco bottle is available for those who only wish to sample one glass of bubbly.

Throughout our visit the staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Whether you’re visiting for a relaxed drink in the spacious beer garden, a three-course meal in the airy dining room or scoping out the venue for your next big party or event, The Tree is sure to impress.

The Tree’s events calendar is packed with fantastic fortnightly karaoke nights, various live bands, tribute acts and Comedy Beats evenings, making it a popular venue for those partial to a bit of evening entertainment. If you visit on the last Wednesday of the month you’ll catch the monthly quiz night, which includes a great-value set food menu and fantastic prizes for the winning team – a great night all round. Join the team on a Monday for salsa dancing performances and lessons accompanied by tapas and Sangria, and on Tuesdays all food and drink has ten per cent off. Wednesday sees an incredible offer, with two steaks, chips and a bottle of house wine priced at £24.99.

The festive season is extremely popular, and The Tree offers great corporate party packages – the spectacular New Year’s Eve party is always the highlight of the year. Check out their website and Facebook page for information.

With such a wide array of delightful dishes and tempting drinks, there’s something for everyone at The Tree. With an ever-improving reputation and a friendly and efficient team, it’s no wonder The Tree is such a popular venue for weddings and private functions. Why not give the team a call to find out more, or follow The Tree on Facebook for details of upcoming events and offers?
