Set in the rural heartland of Surrey, Effingham is a quaint village, close enough to the hustle and bustle of major towns such as Guildford and Epsom and only a 40 minute train ride into London and yet retaining a true country feel and community atmosphere. Located right in the centre of the village you will find the Sir Douglas Haig Public House and Hotel, named after the infamous World War 1 general. There has been an Inn on this site since 1885, when passing traders used to stop here on their way to offer their goods in the markets of our capital city. Today the Sir Douglas Haig is a 7 bedroom guesthouse compromising of single rooms, doubles and family rooms. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and well equipped with tea and coffe making facilities, hairdryers, tv with freeview, free wifi connection and all with en suite facilities We have an excellent restaurant offering breakfast, lunch and evening meals, our food varies from traditional British fayre like our homemade pies and sausage and mash to more flamboyant dishes such as fennel and cream cheese ravioli or watercress and truffle pancakes. Whatever your preference we are sure there will be something to tickle your taste buds. There is also an extensive bar area where you can catch up on the latest sporting events or sit by the open fires and enjoy a quiet chat with the village locals whilst sampling some of the extensive beer and wines on offer.
