The Parrot Inn is a pretty 17th Century, oak-beamed country pub with a real "local" feel - and it serves terrific food. Owned by the Gotto family, who rear pigs, sheep and cows in the beautiful Surrey countryside, you can be sure the food here is responsibly sourced. To complement their pub restaurant, the family has established a farm shop, The Butchers Hall, which is a stone's throw from The Parrot and well worth a visit!
What is special about The Parrot?
It has a very friendly atmosphere and our customers feel welcome from the moment they step inside. The menu changes with the seasons and you can be sure local and seasonal produce always takes centre stage. Gilly, our head chef has been with us for over 20 years and so knows exactly what we want to achieve with our produce and menu. The picturesque pub is set in a delightful location at Forest Green, nestled between Leith Hill and Holmbury Hill, and overlooks the village green.
We produce nearly everything on site - from bacon to bread and pies to pickles!
You see, we are committed to bringing our customers the best food (for which we have won many awards), wines and real ales and to respecting each and every ingredient that appears on our menu. So we produce as much meat as possible at nearby Home Farm. Here, in 500 acres of the Surrey Hills, we raise rare-breed animals using traditional, non-intenstive farming methods. The butchering takes place onsite by our master butcher and we use every part of the beast, hanging our meat for amazing flavour. We even run workshops on sausage making and butchery skills! Our new farm shop is a natural extension to the business; here we give food lovers the chance to buy many of the ingredients we use at the pub plus many more locally sourced products and regional specialities.

A beautiful country venue for your Surrey wedding
There is simply nowhere on earth like The Parrot. So this means there is nowhere quite like it to hold your wedding. Whether you're planning a summer reception which spills out onto the gardens or a cosy bolthole for your wintery celebratrions, we can guarantee the food will be fab, the location delightful and your memories as warm as the welcome we lay on for you and your guests. The Gosterwood Room, with its own bar, has a wide conservatory leading onto a patio and beautiful private gardens and holds up to 100 guests for a seated meal and 180 for a more informal party. It can be made more intimate for smaller gatherings. The Conservatory is licensed for civil ceremonies and can accommodate up to 50 guests. Please call in or ring us for a copy of our brochure - we are very flexible, so this is meant as a guide only.

Local Food Surrey says
When it comes to local food, the Gotto family and their wonderful team are people after our own hearts. What they are doing at The Parrot and their farm shop The Butchers Hall is admirable.
