As part of a family that is passionate about the authentic pub experience, we believe that being part of the local community is key to achieving this.

That’s why we like to support the local community; helping to promote and support local events, fundraising for local charities and building relationships with fellow groups, teams and businesses in the area…

Local Walks

Pub lunches and country walks have gone hand-in-hand for a long time, and there’s good reason too because there’s little better way to work up an appetite than a wonder across some stunning countryside. Luckily, you don’t need to venture far before (or after!) your meal here with us as The Bourne Woods, previous home to many a movie set, and Hankley Common are on our doorstep, just waiting for you to explore them.

Local places to visit and things to do

The Sculpture Park: The world’s largest all year sculpture exhibition with over 300 artists showcasing 600 sculptures, almost everything is for sale and as a result the exhibits are forever changing so there is always something new to discover.

Birdworld: One of the largest bird parks in the country. The 26 acres of landscaped park and gardens is home to over 800 birds and 180 species from around the world. The park also is home to the Underwater World aquarium and the Jenny Wren Farm.

Frensham Little Pond: Frensham Little Pond and common is a sanctuary for both wildlife and people. It’s a great place to unwind and take life at a slower pace. Tranquil pond, wide skies and open views across prickly heathland – just waiting to be explored…

Rural Life Centre: Pleasantly distributed over ten acres of field, woodland and barns, their exhibits include a large number of implements and devices marking in excess of 150 years of farming. Many aspects of village and rural life are displayed in realistic individual settings. There is so much to explore!

Local Charity

Here at The Duke of Cambridge, we are supporters of the Farnham Hedgehogs, helping raise funds for the important work that they do to support the local community who are in need of financial support. Benefactors include individuals, single-parent families, local charities and much more.

A registered charity, established over 55 years ago, The Hedgehogs is a 50-strong team whose mission is to benefit the local community of Farnham and its surrounding areas.  Monies are raised through the team’s tireless efforts throughout the year in organising and managing social events for the local people; every single penny is then distributed out to those in need.
