The Running Horses – one of the most charming places to eat in Surrey.

The Running Horses is a perfect country inn at the heart of picturesque Mickleham village in the Surrey hills. Step inside and you’ll discover one of the most charming places to eat in Surrey.

Dating back to the 16th century, it was once a coaching house. Back in those days, the inn’s clientele provided rich pickings for highwaymen.

Thankfully, things are a little more peaceful these days, but some traditions live on. You’ll still find wonderful home-cooked British food, made with the freshest ingredients, accompanied by a wine list to compare with the top restaurants. 

Whether you’re staying with us for business or pleasure, you’re assured a restful night’s sleep. It’s hard to believe you’re so close to London, the M25, and both Gatwick and Heathrow airports.


Each of our five rooms is tastefully decorated with little personal touches such as antique furniture, original prints, crisp white linen, and soft fluffy towels. Sloping floors and creaky floorboards add to the charm.


Ascot, Sandown and Windsor overlook St Michael’s church. Epsom is at the back overlooking the rolling Surrey hills. They are all double-rooms with en-suite bathrooms with showers.


Ascot is the largest. It has a four-poster bed and the en-suite has both shower and bath.


The Gatehouse

Across the road from the inn this is perfect for a honeymoon couple. And it’s lovely if you’re staying with us for a few days.


It has a cosy lounge, and comfortable bedroom with en-suite bathroom. There’s even a pretty private garden to enjoy on warm days.
