The Drumming Snipe
Love our new local
Great food and great staff
Creative menu to choose from
Food and our waiters were brilliant. Thoroughly recommend!
We had a lovely birthday meal at the Drumming Snipe. The food was excellent, and the service was great. Good wine choices too at reasonable prices. The place was pretty empty and so the surrounding noise levels were very low - just as we prefer.
We will return when the current crisis is over.
Great Sunday roast. Beef shin croquettes were also amazing! The service was really lovely
The house red wine was rubbish
The red on the wine list was much better
A friendly place with attentive staff and an interesting menu. Thank you, we will be back
Great food and service and a welcoming atmosphere.
Good unpretentious menu well cooked staff charming and fun Ambiance chilled
Excellent lunch at the second Brucan site. Food was tasty and prompt and the service was a very high standard and not over the top. Well worth the drive.
Our first visit and we were very impressed. The artichoke soup and smoked trout proved
excellent starters. For mains my wife enjoyed her roast chicken and I was pleasantly surprised at the flavour of the fillet of gurnard, a fish which is sustainable and should be
available more widely. The treacle tart was perhaps a ‘tad’ solid but the rhubarb and junket perfect to end the meal. An interesting selection of wines, albeit a bit pricey...
The owners have obviously invested heavily to create a great ambience and deserve to succeed. Have already booked two return visits and looking forward to sampling more of the menu.
Lovely place and food... one negative thing is felt a bit uncomfortable waiter/waitress were standing in front of our table most of time and felt looking at us...
Other than that pretty good
Some items sold i I out but excellentl service
Sunday roast is delicious. We asked for it to come out quickly as I had my young daughter with us but the roast dinners must have arrived within 2 minutes of us placing our order. It’s a little off putting when it’s this quick. The food was delicious but it made me realise it was obviously already cooked in the kitchen just waiting to be plated up. Pigs on blankets looked unappetising as very pale and undercooked for my liking.
It’s a great pub and has been done up really nicely. But the food coming out this quick makes me question what’s going on on the kitchen.
Welcoming staff, informal but proper service. Decent Sunday lunch with imaginative extras. Will go again to try a la carte.
Really nicely renovated place, good location with parking, a very attentive staff, good food... it was my first visit there and I liked, the only thing that was a bit disappointing - starter I ordered - scallops- only 2 for £13, one decent size, second rather small.. had them in different places 3-4 @ £8 -9 with nice crusty bread or something similar .... everything else was OK
It was our first time trying this newly reopened restaurant / gastro pub and we are beyond thrilled that it has opened up in our area. Fantastic food, atmosphere and drinks but above all was the exceptional service. Can’t wait to have an excuse to go again.
Our first visit and we had a great time. Delicious food and great wine
Disappointing from beginning to end. Staff look unhappy, young waiter out of his depth and no training in basic requirements such as range of gins on offer. Very slow bar service. This Restaurant chain need to realise we already have much better restaurants close by. We were not inspired by the starters or mains but did think desserts were good quality.
Along with catching up with friends on evening, another aim was to decide if the restaurant is suitable to bring done “foodie” friends later in the year for a special occasion. Answer is we won’t be visiting.
Lovely lunch. Very tasty venison. Yummy sticky toffee. Service attentive.
First visit to this recently opened pub; staff are very friendly and welcoming, food was excellent and the place has a great airy feel. I’ll definitely come back
Enjoyed our meal at Drumming Snipe, however disappointed that the cheese on our burgers was 'plastic' processed cheese, would have expected real cheese please!
Generally the food was of an outstanding quality and the taste was exceptional. However the chilli squid was a little bit soggy and the scallops were a little gritty. Really enjoyed the food bar those little points.
The service was ok, we had a very long wait for our main course which was disappointing as tables were finishing and leaving before we’d received our main and they’d arrived way after we had arrived.
The setting was really lovely with a really nice warm atmosphere but a little cramped so it felt like you couldn’t really talk at normal talking volume.
However overall I enjoyed my meal bar the long wait!
Went with high expectations having read about the launch of this new gastronomic pub with the Ivy chef as its owner. However, immediately upon walking through the doors, it hit us it was really just trying to be a fancy pub. The staff were pleasant but really quite lost; and blatantly did not get the proper training, immersion and knowledge transfer that would be expected given the prices and historical restaurant heritage that is touted for this establishment. The wine knowledge was poor and uninterested, the food was bland and cold - and the prices at restaurant levels without much return in taste and quality. Very disappointed but hoping it’s very much teething problems but really needs to be nipped in the bud quickly and the basics covered in staff knowledge and interest, to make sure it doesn’t continue when attempting to be operating fully.
A very pleasant experience, welcoming and friendly service, excellent, tasty and good value lunch menu, good accessibility and parking. Spotlessly clean. Will definitely be visiting again and be recommending to friends and colleagues.
Delicious and an excellent set menu both in choice and value. Can’t wait to come back.
Was really looking forward to my birthday meal.
No host to meet so wandered cautiously into bar where no eye contact or welcome from a not busy barman. Shown to table.
No specials available.
Shared Squid starter..very tasteless and rubbery
Cottage pie , expensive once extra charge for veg applied.
Fresh fish was nice and tasty. Enjoyed my dish although expensive.
Shared crumble, was kind of hoping that it would arrive on a birthday plate....sadly not.even though mentioned on booking online... couldnt get any answer by telephone after many attempts.
Manager around but didnt touch tables once.
Maddie waitress very sweet however so hope 12.5 % service charge goes to her.
Shant return in a hurry.
Excellent meal ,with slick friendly service . The. Calves liver was exceptional 😃 Only comment was puddings were less impressive but I get spoilt by my wife who is rather good at these so wouldn,t wish to be critical .
Great food - the menu is creative and delicious! Excellent service and a warm/friendly atmosphere.
Delicious roast lunch with trimmings, service may need a little adjusting, overall would visit again to try the interesting set lunch menu and would recommend it to friends. Really nicely renovated pub with pretty garden area.
I have now been three times, the food has always been excellent, however there must be staff training occurring as this has not been of a consistent level.
Excellent traditional Sunday lunch in pleasant surroundings. Good value for money. This is the best restaurant in Woking.
Absolutely stunning renovation! The food was absolutely wonderful and service was attentive and flawless.
We had a great Sunday lunch as a family. Great kids menu with freshly cooked food, lovely menu and great roasts. The only reason i didn’t give a 5 star rating is that the roast potatoes weren’t quite perfect - they were lovely and crispy but had the vague texture that roasties sometimes get when they’re not absolutely fresh. Otherwise, really generous portions, innovative and interesting menu, high quality food, good drinks list and the service was outstanding. We’ll definitely be back. Great new addition!!
Food was excellent and lovely staff,would highly recommend and will definitely be visiting again soon
The atmosphere, decor and service was fantastic, our table felt like it was in the middle of the room on its own and there was a very loud table behind us, but once they had gone it was great. Would have preferred to be more in dining room area as I did book ahead.
Food was really fantastic and delicious. For me it is more a restaurant than a "gastro pub" which I think is a good thing, we have plenty of great gastro pubs in Woking.
I had heard that the wine menu is expensive but I enjoyed the fact the wines were different to normally offered so am happy to pay.
Will def be back
Local residents, we enjoyed a nice walk there and back, along the Hoe stream, for lunch.
It was busy, but we were warmly greeted and quickly seated and served. We look forward to returning soon to try other options from the creative and interesting menus and the sound service and cooking .
adult size meal one pc of beef and two potatoes, child's one pc meat and three potatoes and half of beef very fatty, option of having raw medium of well done should be given as meet was rare.
When being seated do not expect lady to cover her mouth with menu and talk to her collage.
Not a great experience and will not be returning
This was our first and it will not be our last. The service was excellent, our waitress had a sense of humour and knew about the food. The food was well presented,hot and very tasty.
Brilliant service. What service should be wherever you go for food. Outstanding. And food very good. Hope they can keep this level of service up
Had a great meal, the waiting staff and manager were great, and very much helped with food allergies and intolerance and offering to amend dishes to suit rather than them being off limits! The meat board is very tasty and I reckon if you are someone with a healthy appetite you could easily finish one by yourself as a treat! Very much recommended! If only they had the cmgoat chops as a main in their own right as they are delicious
