Following its sympathetic refurbishment, over 200 residents, community leaders and Farnham businesses discovered that The Lost Boy was alive and well in Downing Street’s very own ‘Neverland’ - and was serving great food and drink on its opening night last week.
The Lost Boy will be found at 3 Downing Street in Farnham from Friday September 6th 2019 when the Old Town’s newest arrival opens its hospitable doors at midday.
