ALL ABOUT THE SKIM

ALL ABOUT THE 'SKIM'

With a perfect hillside location overlooking resplendent Reigate Heath, the Skimmington Castle is a traditional pub dating back to the 17th century welcoming drinkers, diners, walkers and their dogs, cyclists and of course children. We have a dog friendly approach Skimmy (our cheeky cavapoo) can often be seen greeting customers and her friends around the Skim. 


We are a family run pub and believe that many of our customers and staff are extended members of our ever growing clan.

 

Guests can enjoy a selection of real ales, continental lagers good wines and delicious home-cooked meals. We have four dining areas and of course the great outdoors with glorious views over the Heath and golf course. 


We have ample parking and whether you arrive by car or foot (we have fantastic walks to and from the Skim), build up an appetite and come back to our warm and inviting pub for delicious food and a refreshing drink.
