A little Pub history

Originally named the Fox and Hounds, this pub restaurant used to be run by the Smith family during the late 19th Century. Although by 1894 it was only the father, William and his son, Arthur who were still running The Shy Horse. Today guests at The Shy Horse enjoy an easily accessible venue with its own gardens.

Make a day of it

Dating to the mid 1800s our pub is popular with walkers on Epsom Common, visitors to Chessington World of Adventure, and it has a great beer garden. There's a map in the lobby showing numerous walks and trails.
