All About Us
The Garibaldi was built towards the end of the 1780s. The 1871 census shows it as being run by Charles and Ann Smith who had one son. Its beamed structure, although not listed, is a fine example of late 19th Century public house design.
Its drayman’s delivery store still exists to the side of the pub and can be identified by the high small door at the front of the structure. This is where beer and wine barrels would have been off-loaded from horse-drawn carts. In the late 1990s it was rebranded The Hooden Takes a Knap, but fortunately regained its former identity as The Garibaldi following a further change of ownership in 2005. In 2013 we where awarded “Best Local Pub” in Woking’s Best Bar None Competition. in 2017 we were awarded Certificate of Excellence from trip advisor.
