With ten years experience in the industry, Jo Hammond, the new general manager at The Inn at Maybury, in Woking, previously opened, managed and made famous The Seahorse in Shalford.
Dating back to the 1860s, The Inn at Maybury is steeped in local history. Making the most of the pubs original features, there is a stylish bar, open fires and a mix of shabby chic and mismatched furniture.
Maybury was the home of HG Wells. In 1898, he used the landscape as a focal point to write The War of the Worlds, which detailed a Martian coming down the hill from the convent to the Maybury Inn.
At the core of the pubs food offerings are classic freshly-made pizzas from their stone fired ovens, as well as traditional favourites like steaks and fish and chips. With a comprehensive wine list and a great selection of beers, homespun cask ales and plenty of delicious fizz, this country pub is well worth a visit.
