Painting of the Mayford Arms pub on Westfield Road, Mayford, Woking

Welcome to the Mayford Arms

The Mayford Arms is located by the River Hoe in Mayford Village, in what is now South Woking.  In fact Mayford, according to some, owes it’s name to the Mayweeds that grew in abundance around the marshlands by the ford.

The pub is said to mark the location where the ford crossed the Hoe and perhaps travellers of ye olde dayes stopped here-abouts for a refreshment after the exertion of crossing the river?  We like to think so.

Today, the ford is long gone replaced by a solid bridge but you can still find Mayflowers in the Mayford Meadows Nature Reserve and along the Hoe Valley linear park, both pleasant places to enjoy a outdoors walk, just on our doorstep.

Our Philosophy

Thank goodness times have changed. This is a family pub and everyone (apart from the anti-social) are welcome.

We don’t provide over priced and undersized posh nosh. We like good honest wholesome home style cooked pub food that is affordable and great value for a family.

We also think that a pub can be the heart of the local community and we will continue to support local community groups and provide them with space on our website to promote themselves.
