The Guildford Hotel was old stomping ground for myself and colleagues when working in the vicinity prior to 'the fire' and I was looking forward to a night out there with my family for a 'get together'. Renovations were well done and sympethic to the history of the building, however the food, service and prices were disappointing to say the least. I will not be returning and would not recommend the Guildford to friends if they are looking for good food and service. In terms of the smoked meats the beef was not available so two of us went for the smoked lamb ribs which were a huge disappointment. Smoke - what smoke - tender meat - what meat - portion size for the price was over the top. Mash was substandard and as the the beans served in a cardboard container they left a lot to be desired Chicken parma was also order - who serves chicken parma in a roll. Obviously on the menu as a bar snack filler. I had been warned of all of the above by a colleague before booking and should have taken heed and swapped celebration venue.
Hi There, We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy you dining experience at The Guildford Hotel. We take all feedback very seriously and we believe its only from customer feedback that we can improve. Please be reassured we have passed this onto our head chef and changes to the way we serve our beans will be made. -Team Guildford

Maybe a better idea to serve your salad with the meal in a porcelain bowl,not a cardboard/paper bowl
Hi Eddy, Thanks for the review, we will pass your suggestion on to the Head Chef for consideration. We hope this hasn't put you off returning to The Guildford Hotel.

We were a lunch party of 10. Food was ok, and I didn't hear any complaints, but my 'rare' steak came out 'medium' which was disappointing, and the salad was undressed. Service was great though and it's a beautiful, well restored (post fire) pub.
Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are so pleased to hear that you received great customer service from our team and that you enjoyed the building itself. We are sorry to read that your steak wasn't cooked to your liking, we would certainly have been more than happy to rectify this for you on the day! We welcome all feedback and we'll be sure to pass this on to our Head Chef for consideration. Thanks again,
