The prize includes a two night stay for two at The Stag on the River with a three-course dinner served on one night plus a copy of the new edition of Inn Places: Discover the best Inns of England and Wales handpicked by David Hancock. Four runners up will also win a copy of the Inn Places guide book.
Located within 90 minutes of London, just seconds from the A3, south of Guildford, the 18th-century Stag on the River certainly lives up to its name, providing a perfect pit-stop for weary travellers. It’s a peaceful spot, so shun the roadside services in favour of an alfresco coffee or lunch on the terrace beside the River Wey.
Alternatively, stay over in one of the smart, contemporary rooms – it’s an ideal base for exploring the North Downs and the Surrey Hills (walking or cycling) or some retail therapy in nearby Guildford. Pretty Godalming with its niche independent shops is only two miles away
Inside, open fires roar come winter, and the cosy bar and dining rooms are full of character with wood and brick floors, themed wallpaper and old photos of the village, plus a comfortable mix of armchairs, fresh flowers and daily papers.

More about Inn Places
Inn Places is a handpicked collection of the best pubs with rooms in England and Wales, curated by industry expert David Hancock
Recognising this growing trend for pubs with smart rooms and high quality food and drink, industry expert David Hancock created innplaces.co.uk, a niche website that showcases a carefully curated collection of England and Wales’s most stylish pubs with rooms.
Hancock (who previously edited Sawday Pubs & Inns and AA Room at the Inn) says: ‘I handpicked my personal favourites to launch innplaces.co.uk to ensure customers can find the best inns and pubs with rooms that England and Wales has to offer. Some are posh with boutique-style rooms while others ooze tradition and rustic country house charm.
‘We look for rooms with a ‘wow’ factor that will draw guests back time and again, but mostly for a winning combination of wonderful food, real ales and wine, comfortable bedrooms, and a genuine welcome from hands-on owners. Also important are inventive menus that brim with local produce, enthusiastic staff and excellent housekeeping.’
Hancock has curated his collection into Innspire Me categories such as Muddy Paws, Romantic Getaways and Family Friendly. Of particular interest to London residents may be his 90 Minutes from London collection which showcases inns just a short hop from London and the M25, making them ideal venues for a weekend break or a short stay away.
The website also includes information on places to visit, local walks, independent shopping, food trails that showcase local artisan producers, micro-breweries and vineyards offering tours, quality farm shops and delis plus other good pubs and eateries nearby.
The Inn Places Guide Book (Discover the Best Inns of England and Wales handpicked by David Hancock) is £8.99 from innplaces.co.uk/the-guide
