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.

Be aware of how loud the TV screens are. Can’t hear yourself and difficult to have a discussion
Hi there, Thanks so much for the review! We appreciate the high scores and we apologise for the volume of the speakers. I hope you can understand that it's not normally like that and was only so high as it was a large advertised game. We really try to cater for all guests at the same time, but sometimes, like Saturday, it can be a bit tricky. We really hope this doesn't stop you from coming back again!

Food is good but always a long wait!! And forgot my chips.
Hi there, Thank you for your feedback! I'm really sorry for the delay you experienced and your missing chips during your visit to The Guildford! I hope you can appreciate how busy we were on the day you visited and that someone got your chips when you informed us! I really hope it doesn't put you off coming back again! :) - Team G

Everything was going well until one of our friends had her lunch (Chicken Caesar salad) she noticed her chicken strips were not cooked properly. She ate the salad but left most of the chicken strips and actually showed the waiter. When she bought it to the attention of a waiter clearing away our used plates he didn't seem too interested ...... Never heard anything else about it ....... We were there for at least 45 minutes after eating our meals
Hi Kerrie, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback regarding your trip to The Guildford on Saturday! I must apologise for the experience you had with your meal and that it wasn't dealt with correctly. All of our food is temperature controlled before leaving the kitchen so it is unusual for this to happen, however, we would have been very happy to fix this for you and I am sorry that didn't happen. We really hope this won't put you off coming back to The Guildford! - Team G

Terrible service. After waiting a half hour no entrees came when we inquired why we were told they were waiting for our main course choices ???????????????
Hi Glynis, Thanks for your feedback. I have already sent you a direct email regading your comments from another review you left. I would be really grateful if you could tell us some more about your visit so we can get to the bottom of this. Thanks Team Guildford

No water on the table. Had to flag staff down to order food, then again later to get more drinks. Quiz night was on right next to the dining area, it’s way too loud
