Dating back to the 16th century, The Merry Harriers is a traditional village Inn set in the heart of the picturesque village of Hambledon in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With origins dating back to the 16th century it is a wonderful mix of old and new, full of character and life, excellent food, award-wining local ales and wines and first-rate accommodation.
Head Chef, Sam Montgomery-Page, delivers freshly cooked traditional pub favourites alongside a creative range of Seasonal Specials and fabulous Sunday roasts. The focus is on high quality locally sourced ingredients with a little foraging here and there – Hambledon nettles, blackberries and wild garlic being some of Sam’s favoured additions.
In the bar the local theme prevails with a range of Surrey ales and home-pressed cider, local wines and an extensive selection of world wines, spirits and fresh cocktails. The award winning Bloody Mary is a perfect precursor to the popular Sunday roast.
Overnight stays are exceptionally quiet and peaceful in a choice of seven beautifully designed en-suite bedrooms. Four newly refurbished Inn Rooms feature ancient oak beams and contemporary furnishings while the three Garden Rooms offer a simple rustic charm and lovely views of the surrounding countryside and the resident llamas.
There’s a pretty garden for al fresco drinks and dining with a children’s play area and garden boules. Children of all ages and four-legged friends are always welcome and there’s plenty of parking on site.
With a final element of the unexpected, The Merry Harriers is the only Inn in England to offer a highly original selection of Llama picnic treks. Extremely gentle and friendly, with their own special brand of happiness and fun to offer all ages, there’s a ten strong herd of llamas to carry picnic hampers and guide trekkers along the stunning local trails. A specially tailored selection of treks can cater for all sorts of occasions from romantic anniversaries to children’s birthday parties and even corporate team building with a definite difference!
