ABOUT The Mint

Despite being a 16th-century building, The Mint pub itself isn’t nearly as old. In fact, the first mention of it is in the 1871 census when Edward Bennett is described as a beer retailer — his family subsequently stayed there for 60 years! The Mint was at the heart of the mint growing district in the south of Banstead until it became a beer house in 1871 and was purchased by Page & Overton’s Croydon brewery at auction in 1899.

Our beautiful surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu and the hand-picked cask ales or fine wines served at our bar.

The fantastic chefs at The Mint have carefully crafted a selection of menus to suit every occasion at any time of the day. From brunch through to dinner, we have a dish for you with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options available also.


If you’re spending a day exploring the beautiful Surrey Hills, then you’ll be pleased to know that we’re just 20 minutes’ drive away by car via Dorking Road/B2032. Treating the kids to a fantastic day out? Well, The Mint is just 22 minutes’ drive away from Chessington World of Adventures, via B280.

Travelling by train? We’re just a 4 or 6-minute drive from Chipstead and Banstead railway stations respectively. And, Banstead Downs, Oaks and Chipstead golf clubs are all less than a 15-minute drive away, meaning The Mint is the perfect spot to visit after a round of golf for a pint and a bite to eat from one of our fantastic menus.


There’s plenty of variety when it comes to seeing and doing in Banstead. Visit the beautiful Banstead Wood and explore all the sights and sounds it has to offer. Or, take the family camping at Oaks Park (weather depending of course!), just a 5-minute drive via Croyden Lane.

Escape the hustle and bustle of the full-time whistle at Twickenham and take a drive out to The Mint, less than an hour’s drive via Kingston Road/A240. Watch the latest match and then celebrate or commiserate the result over a glass of something chilled and maybe a bite to eat from our main menu.
