An electrifying new pub has opened in the heart of Epsom.

The Faraday, named after scientist Michael Faraday, who discovered electromagnetic induction, has replaced The Vestry in Epsom town centre.

The new watering hole started trading towards the end of last month after a £200,000 refurbishment. 

Not only does The Faraday offer lunch and dinner menus, boasting hearty burgers and filling hot dogs, there is a breakfast service available from 8am, to eat-in or grab-and-go.

Punters can also enjoy the pub's jukebox system, free Wifi, recharging and printing facilities.

And in terms of the essentials, there is a wide range of drinks on offer including craft beers, cask ales, cider, wines and cocktails.

The Faraday; 2 Church Street, Epsom; open 8am to 12am daily; call 01372 817750; visit www.thefaradayepsom.co.uk

Why does it take an alleged "Chief Reporter" to write what is, to all intents and purposes, an unpaid for advertisement for this pub? Or is someone paying / getting paid for this???

I fear that you are right. The Albion has reopened this week at the other end of the town, after a big re-fit, but no mention by The Guardian.

Haven't tried it yet, but I see it's owned by Stonegate, one of the biggest pubcos (owners of Slug & Lettuce, Yates Fight Bars, etc) and the result of a private equity company buying a number of smaller pubcos and squashing them all together. That's not good news.

However, credit where it's due... judging by the draught beer updates on their Twitter feed, they're stocking some interesting stuff. I'm always sceptical when companies use the magic term "craft beer" (because it's now starting to be used very lazily, like "artisan") but The Faraday have so far been true to their word... Brewdog, Hogsback, Thornbridge, Grimbergen.

I'm still uncomfortable with pubcos, but I'll be sampling their wares before long!
