YOUR LOCAL IN CRANLEIGH VILLAGE
Peach is a collection of really great pubs, mainly in market towns in the heart of England. Sitting right on the High Street in Cranleigh, The Richard Onslow is a busy pub with great food, 10 beautiful bedrooms and is conveniently located near to Guildford. As a quality gastropub, we serve great ingredients and fresh, honest food in relaxed, welcoming surroundings, always with a kind word and a sense of fun. Today we have twenty one pubs in lovely towns and villages, and an undimmed devotion to Making life Peachy. We have always been passionate about giving back and as we’ve developed and grown over the years, our ability and motivation to make the world a little better, a little peachier, has grown with us. The Bigger Peach shows our efforts to improve communities, equality in the workplace, and the future sustainability of our world. Our achievements were recognised in 2022, when we won Best Sustainable Pub Company at the Publican Awards, and we’re also three star accredited by the Sustainable Restaurant Association.
Soak up the sun and atmosphere whilst enjoying a bite to eat, a cocktail, or a glass of award-winning wine from our drinks list. We serve food all day and children are welcome to enjoy smaller portions of any of our dishes, or ask to see our children’s menu. We take huge pride in serving the best ingredients we can find, from ethical producers, freshly prepared by our chefs. We’re dog friendly in our bar and outdoor areas, bring your furry friend and stop by soon. On our bar you’ll find a great range of spirits, beers and softs, so whether you pop in for a drink, a business lunch or a special dinner, we promise you a friendly welcome. Find us here.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Camilla & the team
Camilla Baldwin, General Manager
Born and raised in Cranleigh itself, Camilla started working in hospitality at just 16 years old and was instantly hooked by its highly suited fast-paced d environment and tempting food and drink to taste. Camilla has worked at Peach for over 10 years now and joined the Richard Onslow working part-time whilst back home from where she attended university in Falmouth, Cornwall.
A local lass through and through, Camilla adores being part of the heart of the community here and thrives on hosting the many events held at the pub. Outside of work, you’ll often find her walking her dog, Ralph, most likely at the beach, followed by a pub lunch, naturally! Camilla has the energy that could rival that of the Duracell bunny itself, you’ll no doubt see her smiling and dancing around the pub, or busy feeding the team rightly earning herself the title of ‘feeder’!
SIAN LEWIS, POD DIRECTOR
Hospitality, and making sure everyone is really well looked after, are in Sian’s genes. From helping her grandfather run the family B&B in the glorious Pembrokeshire countryside where she grew up to studying travel and tourism at Pembrokeshire College. She moved on to manage the two Rosette restaurant at The Maynard, a beautiful boutique hotel in the Peak District National Park, and laying on fantastic foodie events.
Her next home was The Ferry Inn, a fine watering hole, and then its lovely sister pub The Boar’s Head in Narbeth, offering good food and hospitality in equal measure. When it was time for a change, Sian went to Hampshire to become deputy at our own sister pub The Chequers in Eversley Cross, quickly helping this gorgeous village local make its mark, before taking on The Duke of Wellington to make it the best for miles around. Acorn Award winner, Sian, has now been appointed from General Manager to Pod Director for our Surrey and Oxfordshire pubs.
Gavin Chilcott, Head Chef
When not dreaming of being a cowboy, Gavin’s passion to become a chef started from a young age, looking through the kitchen doors in cafes and restaurants as a child, dreaming to be on the other side. Gavin comes from a family of foodies and carries this same passion onto his son AJ, teaching him how to cook with different types of food and creating healthy options, he’s even made some brownies for the team at here at the Onslow.
Gavin is classically French and traditionally British trained, with a passion to share his knowledge and love of food, both with his family and the catering world he loves so much. Working in a variety of kitchen environments Gavin started his career with Chef & Brewer, winning their chef of the year competition at the impressive age of 17, an accolade he is very proud of. He then moved on to hotels and event catering, creating delicious and practical menus for large weddings and conferences, whilst running a two rosette kitchen and working alongside Marco Pierre White. Making his way back into the pub sector, Gavin brings his talented pairing of ingredients and love for high quality food into the kitchen of The Richard Onslow. Being his local pub, it’s important to Gavin to be part of the community and he has a dream to put The Onslow on the foodie map!
