The Rifleman is a small corner pub in the shadow of a bridge carrying the railway to and from London. It was a Friary Meux pub until sold to Greene King in 1990. Now a 'Local Heroes' pub selling a mixture of local beers, plus ones supplied by Greene King which include the house beer 'Rifleman'. The pub has been refurbished in a traditional style featuring dark green wood panelling, but also has some modern features such as high tables at the front and some bare brick. Two fireplaces have been restored as part of the refurbishment. There is a nice garden to the rear, which is an oasis of calm close to central Epsom. Name thought to derive from the formation nearby of the 8th Corps of the Surrey Rifle Volunteers in 1859 to meet the threat of a French invasion. Children welcome until 6pm. Accredited for beer quality during 2019.
