Two of us had the steak sandwich which wasn’t the nicest meal, but the others had fish n chips and the Bao Buns and thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Great table location to watch the Grand Final
Hi Maura, Thank you for your feedback@ We are sorry to hear that you didn't love the steak sandwich, I will pass this on to our kitchen team. However, we are glad to hear the rest of your party enjoyed their meals! We hope this doesn't put you off coming back again! - Team Guildford

We did enjoy the food. Only negatives would be nobody could tell us where our reserved table was. We had to wander around and find it ourselves. We also asked for plates and spoons for a birthday cake. 20 mins later there was nothing and we had to request again. Otherwise it was a great atmosphere and good food.

The atmosphere was good. Food very good but drinks were very expensive for a pub.
Hi Helen, Thanks for your review, we're glad to see you had a good time at The Guildford and enjoyed your food. We do try and stay around the same price as other local pubs but we will take your comments on board. - Team G

Lovely food and the service was great and the staff were very attentive. The only constructive comment I would make is that you should have a desk where people can be met and greeted to be taken to your table. We booked a table ahead of time and we did stand around waiting for about 10 mins before someone came to us and asked us if we wanted a table.
Hi Jeanna, Thank you for the review, we appreciate you feedback and it's great to see you had such an enjoyable time! We used to have a host in the entrahce, however we have found a lot of guests bypassed this and would come to the bar anyway. We decided the staff member was more valuable serving tables or helping behind the bar :) There is always someone floating around to assist if necessary. However, on busy days such as Father's Day yesterday, we do have someone positioned at the front to meet and greet and show people to their seats. Thank you again for the feedback! We take all comments seriously and we hope to see you again soon! - Team Guildford

I booked a function for 20 people. We found plastic inside the tacos. The service staff left dirty plates and glasses at our tables for far too long and we ended up clearing tables ourselves despite us asking for staff to clear them. The ladies toilets had no hand towels and the sinks were filthy. They turned the coffee machine off an hour before closing time and my guests were not able to have a coffee after a night of substandard food and expensive cocktails.
Hi Robyn, Thank you for your feedback regarding your night here at The Guildford. I am sorry to hear that this has happened and please note we take all feedback very seriously. I have already spoken to our head chef regarding this so thank you for bringing it to our attention as we pride ourselves on quality control from all aspects of the business. Sincerest apologies and we hope this does not stop you from coming back to The Guildford in future. Thank you again for your feedback, Team Guildford.

My partner ordered the steak sandwich which had a very small amount of steak especially considering the price and was put together in a hurry. Waiters very slow at clearing the table, cocktails small and over priced but delicious. It was an average meal. Staff friendly and helpful.
Hi there, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We are so sorry to see that you didn't enjoy your visit to The Guildford a much as we'd hope! We have passed your comments and feedback on to the appropriate areas and teams. We do hope you can appreciate this was a particularly busy Saturday lunchtime and the guys were doing the best they could. We genuinely hope your experience won't put you off returning to The Guildford Hotel again! - Team Guildford

We had a very arkwardly positioned table by the beam/pole which made sitting at the table hard for one of us The fish and chips were very very oily we couldn’t finish the meal. The entree was stunning!!!!
Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback, we take all comments very seriously and find them extremely valuable for staff training and improving! We are very sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your baramundi and chips, but we are glad it was redeemed slightly by the entree! We have passed your comments on to the kitchen team and we will look over the positioning of our tables in the restaurant to ensure no one is uncomfortable. We really hope this hasn't put you off returning to The Guildford another time. We would be grateful of the opportunity to prove we aim for higher standards than we delivered during your recent visit! - Team Guildford
