Set just over a mile from Box Hill’s famous viewing 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 a spacious restaurant in a converted barn area, which fuses contemporary styling with eclectic antique furniture. Outside there’s a good-sized garden and a well-equipped children’s play area.

Since taking over The Tree in April 2017, new owners Liv and Glenn have set about strengthening the pub’s local ties, as evidenced on the thoughtfully curated menu. There’s a sharing board to start, with a generous selection of charcuterie meats, bread from Pearce’s Bakery in Bookham, and a chicken liver parfait that’s made in-house from scratch. A veggie board is available too, along with a range of starters including a daily soup choice and poached duck egg with asparagus.

For mains, the lamb rump with summer vegetables and barley risotto came highly recommended by our attentive server and it did not disappoint. It was sliced, cooked to perfection and drizzled with a jus that hit just the right notes of red wine and mint. The Box Hill burger is nearly as tall as the landmark with which shares its name: it comes skewered with a steak knife, and is as flavoursome as it is substantial.

Desserts are worth saving room for. Highlights include a daily changing crumble and a Knickerbocker Glory sundae, elegantly served in a Champagne glass.

The local theme continues in the drinks menu, with local brews regularly rotated into the selection of four real ales that are available on tap at any given time.There is also gin from two local distilleries – Gutsy Monkey in Dorking and Silent Pool in Guildford. 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 Pablo y Walter malbec, a peppery Franschloek Cellars shiraz and a smooth, subtle Paul Delane Chablis. Bubbly is also available by the bottle, ready for celebrations.
