White House, Guildford

user reviews of the White House, Guildford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Reopened - and hopefully in line for a good summer's riverside trade.

Ideal rustic location - but very close to Guildford town centre.

Closed, because of flooding - by Storm Dennis.

Went here last week. Good beer and nice seating space. Otherwise quite drab and food looks pricey.
BestBeerBoffin - 18 Aug 2017 19:49
Nice and comfortable pub with plenty of seating. I can't fault it other than it is much too over priced to eat here.
aleman - 12 Aug 2017 20:38
Pleasant and civilised place for a relaxing pint before the train back to 'the smoke'. Waterside beer garden very appealing, offset slightly by the couple french kissing at an adjacent table.
strangetorpor - 26 Jul 2014 17:59
Came here on Sunday and had a pint of London Pride, the pub has not changed much in around a decade with a fairly light coloured layout and a general mixture of seating places, so the pub is reasonably spacious but it can get quite busy.
Sitting upstairs can be more pleasant, there is an outside seating up there as well which gives views across the River Wey and the bridge heading towards Guildford high street. The beer range does not excite, Fullers seems to produce the same beers all the time, however it is an acceptable pub near the train station for a drink or two.
aleman - 28 May 2014 18:18
Whilst still on the High Street, this large Fullers pub is just the other side of a river and a busy road. Tables on the bank overlooking the river looked appealing. There is plenty of seating downstairs, plus more on an upper level. Dining seemed popular. Beers on were all from the Fullers stable - Fullers London Pride, Summer Ale, Sticky Wicket & ESB & Gales Seafarers Ale. Not a bad pub. But nothing particularly special about it either.

A fairly typical Fullers pub with a fairly typicaly range of Fullers drinks available. The stand out choice being the Fullers Honey Dew. An acceptable pub, which has less space than you would imagine from the outside of the building. Somehow the many pillars make the pub feel cramped, despite that it is a decent place to have a drink by the River.
EyeOfTheTigerBeer - 14 May 2012 19:29
Called in here at the end of our walk from Godalming. A split level pub which I always find quite a pleasant place to drink. Selling Fuller's Black Cab Stout on draught which was very good and an added bonus.

The loos are hidden away upstairs and are a bit of a trek. Otherwise a more than adequate drinking hole.

Smart, well-run, not hugely characterful pub in a nice loation
Uncle_Dunkel - 29 Nov 2011 17:51
Bland and soulless.
marinaman - 3 Oct 2011 15:19
Classic Fullers right down to the smart, townhouse style exterior in brilliant white (it's not named as it is for nothing), this pub's riverside location would be lovely were it not for the encroachment of roundabouts and multi-storeys - a once smart county town really did suffer from the vagaries of late twentieth century planning. Inside is predictable with nitrokegs and bar staff wielding those weird key on a string type contraptions to open the tills.
BoehmBawerk - 7 Aug 2011 19:56
actually had very good service here despite the reviews below, staff were happy to point me in the direction of other decent pubs in the area. Pub is light inside and has high ceilings, but still had a good buzz about it, even on a weekday afternoon it was busy. very god pub.
CHELSEA_on_tour - 27 Jul 2011 11:07
Given up on this pub now - the staff are always so miserable and have no interest in serving people.
Shame, because it's a nice building with a good location by the river.
paullyp - 14 Jun 2011 15:44
Staff were grumpy, the manager didn't seem to care at all about my complaint regarding the condition of my pint of Pride. Disappointed!
jim23 - 6 Jun 2011 03:05
Fullers pub...a new back garden layout...right next to the river...a good summer pub...ales were good...mixed crowd...though the tables and chairs seemed crammed in which gives little room..or privacy..
d.franks - 28 Apr 2011 20:27
Visited on Thursday afternoon between sales at Debenham's and Guildford High St.

This pub is neater and airier than I remember it and the upstairs has been refurbished. It seems to be kept neat and tidy, but it was a bit on the cold side.

Chiswick, Pride, ESB and Jack Frost the Fullers' draught selections, my disappointment at the lack of London Porter was lessened by a superb pint of Gale's Seafarer, served by a very friendly barmaid, at �2.95.

We did not try the food, but the menu looked quite reasonable, especially in the light of the substatial and delicious portions of mussels being consumed a couple of tables away!

Recommended on a visit to Guildford 'though it does get busy in the summer thanks to it's riverside position.
flashharry1965 - 31 Dec 2010 11:10
I have always got a very different service then other mentioned below. Was in last week and the staff are rude and stroppy. Food over priced and generally starting to look tired! The George Abbot over the road is a lot better better now its been refurbished, will go there now instead.
womble77 - 11 Nov 2010 17:39
Nice pub in a pleasant setting. Sea bass was great and service also very friendly and efficient. Nice ale too as long as you like Fullers. Very good and worth a visit! Riverside seating area and balcony upstairs.
thehonesttruth - 6 Sep 2010 22:27
It's the river wey i believe
bluedocs123 - 30 Aug 2010 16:15
Reasonable pub by the river, or is it the canal.
rainlight - 30 Aug 2010 14:24
This is a great pub. The landlord and his staff run a pretty tight ship, but he keeps a great pint of 'London Pride' and has an amusing dry sense of humour.
oldgolded - 24 Aug 2010 20:25
I held a social here for some colleagues yesterday. The landlord and staff couldn't have been more helpful. They booked out the upper area and we had access to the balcony area as well.

The beer was in excellent shape. I had the ESB and Seafarers and both were faultless. We had the chilli-nachos, mezze and pizza and all were very good indeed. Obviously home made pizza and chilli and all very well presented. Everyone was impressed and we'll use the pub again for future socials! Recommended!

The pub was also clean and used glasses and plates were getting picked up quickly. It all makes a difference! Keep it up people.
misfithound - 20 Aug 2010 11:14
Visited yesterday and have no issues with the staff - friendly, efficient and polite service. Large garden by the river.

Pride, ESB, Discovery and Seafareres on offer. Reasonably priced at �3 for Pride and �2.85 for Seafarers. I've had better Pride but I've also had a lot worse!

Food is pretty standard pub stuff but was OK and served pretty quickly despite our order for 11 people.
cheshirecat - 14 Jul 2010 09:37
Went there this evening. Beer poor, very watery even the Pride had no taste. The discovery and seafarers lacked taste. Had to wait to be served even though it was fairly quiet and according to my partner, there was no toilet paper in the loos. Come on Fullers! Not a pub I would rush back to. People were coming in off the streets with their cans of lager and sitting outside. the barstaff did not challenge and let them in. Bad language and other unsavoury behaviour, very offputting when I was trying to entertain some friends.
beerdyweirdy - 7 Jul 2010 00:03
Seems decent again, average fullers beers but reasonable service and decent stop off for drinkg by river.
drinkers_paradise - 28 May 2010 17:03
Nice beer garden....have ESB on tap. Good place to go. Really honest and friendly staff.....I lost my mobile on Saturday.....and phoned on the Monday and they had put it to one side.....And they wouldn't even take a tip.

Ate there as well and the food was good honest pub food.....I'd been walking all day and bangers and mash did the job!
1drinkinglady - 17 May 2010 22:01
Its had a history of unfriendly service so I don't blame you. Hopefully things shall improve but i've had to drop my rating.
drinkers_paradise - 9 May 2010 19:27
Pleasant interior, great location, just about drinkable beer, but now with a truly unfriendly manager behind the bar. Used to drink here regularly, but the regular manager was instantly unfriendly and offensive to the point that me and my friend felt compelled to leave even before we had ordered our food and drinks. Walked 100yards down the road to the Britannia for vastly superior service.
AleAlex - 9 May 2010 19:01
Good beer and excellent location.
drinkers_paradise - 19 Apr 2010 14:57
Popped in this afternoon after a stroll along the river. Good location. Service was OK. Really enjoyed a couple of pints of their Suffolk cider. Food: Roast Lamb, just about acceptable. Chicken Tikka Massala, not very good at all.
twinketoes - 11 Apr 2010 19:54
This is a lovely pub - great location, light and airy feel. But what's happened to the beer? It's pretty hard to spoil a pint of London Pride but they have succeded here. I shall be heading up to the Keep for good pints now when in Guildford.
GrahamA - 7 Apr 2010 14:12
Wondered in not knowing what to expect this afternoon. Greeted by rather cheerful Irish music for St Patricks day. Walked over to Real Ale section - HSB, Pride and Seafarers. Decided on the Seafarers.. giving a suspicious look but served. Food menu has changed with some remarkably cheap prices so surely worth a go for the food at some point. �5.75 for a pizza I believe. Pub was bright enough, but beer tasted odd and could not finish pint. 6/10 but can improve i'm sure.
BestBeerBoffin - 17 Mar 2010 15:24
any pub that serves people who are banned on pubwatch doesn't deserve custom.
Coolbreeze - 10 Dec 2009 01:17
A really popular pub and it's nice to see the ales are kept in great condition - Seafarers Ale was on; I can confirm both that and the Pride were very good.
pchaimba - 28 Nov 2009 11:55
Yes its a Fullers pub so if you like their beer your ok here,not seen a guest ale on any time i`ve called in. 6/10
Not an original pub as Beersupper has stated it`s true it was a solicitors for years.
Also Guildford is not a city.
giveusabeer - 22 Nov 2009 19:11
This town centre Fullers pub is attractively situated on the riverside next to the Town Bridge. There is usually a decent range of Ales on offer (HSB / ESB / Discovery / Pride / Chiswick) at competitive prices and decent quality whenever I have been there. There are plenty of interesting historic maps and photos, in particular of the floods that devastated the town in 1907 (taking the bridge with it). Much if the interior has been knocked through and extended with a conservatory tacked on one side that leads to the riverside terrace but overall it feels quite light, airy and reasonably homely with enough walls remaining inside to make clear divisions and break the openness. Upstairs there is some additional seating and also a roof terrace. The outside riverside terrace has plenty of cover and can be quite idyllic on a warm day although it naturally can get pretty busy. I have found service friendly and efficient and the customer base relatively civilised. I certainly have no qualms on popping in on my occasional visits to the city.
RogerB - 4 Nov 2009 18:26
Management are a bit off and food prices ridiculous but good beer.
PubWithTheGrub - 2 Nov 2009 15:24
Have 2 agree this has really gone downhill.
BigAleDrinkhead - 30 Aug 2009 15:34
Crap Fullers beers of late - shame as its a fine location.
BestBeerBoffin - 30 Aug 2009 15:31
A fine Fullers pub.

Modern style on the inside.

Excellent choice of beers.

Would eat here if less pricey.
best_pub_in_city - 21 Jun 2009 19:46
I've been visiting this pub for the best part of two years: the beer has always been good (I've never had a bad pint of any of the Fullers beers on offer) as has the food (I had a good roast here yesterday, and the burgers are great!). Great place to go for lunch, I've never tried it at dinner time. Can get very busy on a Friday or Saturday night (as do all the pubs in Guildford though). Definitely my favourite pub in Guildford.
lespaulcustom - 18 May 2009 12:52
Good pub and a nice location. Great range of Fullers beers all year round and plenty of entertain to keep you occupied. Enough room around the pub itself such as a seating area upstairs or going outside is also an option.
somewhere2drink - 29 Apr 2009 16:40
I like it. Has a good atmosphere and nice lighting system going on.
BigAleDrinkhead - 1 Nov 2008 18:24
This pub has a good location by the river. Nice enough for a drink, but the prices are quite steep and the service cetainly doesn't reflect this. Food is overpriced for what you get.
paullyp - 27 Sep 2008 17:42
Staff can be a little bit up themselves here. Food is a little pretentious and over-priced. Beer is of a decent standard and its good location are what make up for the problems. 5/10 from me, middle of the range.
BestBeerBoffin - 3 Sep 2008 14:08
Now if you can avoid the sometimes very rude staff you may enjoy yourself here... I am not saying all the staff are rude just about 3 people... 2 I believe no longer work here. It is a nice pub apart from that.

The only other downside is that it is more expensive than The George Abbot across the road. I may visit again in the near future and report further. The ales here tend to be seasonable.
TheSurreyPubMan - 5 Aug 2008 22:10
Very pleasant sitting by the river on a summer's afternoon and an excellent pint of ESB too. Shame about the pansy stemmed pint glass, I shall ask for a straight next time.
We didn't try the food, but lots of people eating and no obvious returns, so it can't be that bad.
BeerMonstersBall - 25 Jul 2008 10:27
Well went here today for a birthday lunch; and my genral impression was the staf adhere to the old adage 'You don't have to be slow to work here, but it helps!!' Service was absolutely awful; with no apology from staff or management. Had to point out on two occasions that I had been waiting for ten minutes to get served, whilst the satff faffed around serving other customers that had only just arrived at the bar. Food was awful; ten quid for some under cooked prawns with soggy tomatoes and dry rice. The chef must be an amatuer or just doesn't care, after having waited forty minutes for the food I thought it would have at least been tasty; no such luck. The people behind this bar need to take a good look at it and either give up and give someone else a go or sack the current staff, take the bull by the horns and make make some (earned) money and satisfy some customers. In future I'll be taking my and my friends custom to the far superior Britania.
mooty123 - 24 Jul 2008 17:01
We find this a smart, friendly and well run establishment for an after work depressurising session, or lunch time drink.

I have yet to sample the food however, so I cannot comment on that aspect.

The staff members we have encountered here have been chatty without being obtrusive, as well as being cheerful and helpful which is a winning combination for me.

I certainly don't find the prices here offensive, but I don't drink Red Bull so I have no idea what that drink should cost.

Whilst The White House may not be everyone's cup of tea, it is one of my favourite places to pop into for a drink in Guildford, and has never disappointed me yet.
LunchLadyDoris - 1 Jul 2008 18:37
Nice seating area outside, but redbull and vodka for just over �7???? this isn't Trafalgar square!

There are too many other decent pubs in Guildford with more reasonable prices.
mr_dombat - 30 Jun 2008 09:50
This has become our standard place to meet up because it's so friendly and we feel so comfortable in here. If you see a bunch of girlies commandeering the sofas by the windows over looking the river then it's probably us!

The staff are always lovely as well as capable, and the prices seem - to us - to be commensurate with the local area. In fact a round in here often seems a couple of quid cheaper than in many of the other places we hang out.

I'd love to know more about the history of the building Beersupper. It's been a pub for my whole drinking career.
jackie_sunshine - 29 Jun 2008 12:39
Not my cup of tea, bar staff and management look down on you, disrespectful thing going on methinks.
TheSensiblePubReviewer - 27 Jun 2008 23:03
Good location near to the river. Well kept beers from Fullers. Friendly staff with a helpful atitude to their customers.
jbsjazzer - 6 Jun 2008 10:42
The 'White House', nicely refurb'd, deceptively spacious ground floor (looks smaller from outside) and a quaint 1st floor 'landing' area big enough for a small party (you could squeeze 20 people in there, but you'd have to be good friends..!)!
Decor is dark but tastefully done. Seating was comfy, but get in before the office workers, or you won't find a seat! Lots of photos of 'old' celebs on the walls upstairs (folk like Steve McQueen, James Bond, 60's singers, etc). I liked the jokey pictures in the loo, depicting "Monica and Bill" outside The White House!! Fantastic!!
Excellent food, although i only plumped for the bacon burger. It was tastefully presented on an 'oblong' plate, and came within 10mins of ordering (that was at 6.30pm), pretty good really.
I like the venue, right on the tow-path, i bet that's lovely in the hot weather. There is a 'deck' area outside at the back which over-looks the river (Wey). The White House gets 8/10 from me, when i want to be 'posh', eat reasonably, and entertain Mrs TJ! If you want to see the European football you'll have to go over the road to the 'George Abbott' the nearest sports bar. Which i can also recommend..!! TJ
TeeJay - 7 May 2008 16:02
They`ve not done a bad job on this building considering it`s not a true old Guildfordian pub and was a solicitors office for years,good location by the Wey not my cup of tea tho.
Beersupper - 20 Apr 2008 15:17
Fullers pub on the river by the town bridge. Good taste furnishings in the usual sedate Fuller's style. I like a more earthy feel to my pubs - this is like drinking in a department store tea room. Points for nice location, being clean and tidy, and for offering four different casks in good condition.
SilkTork - 8 Apr 2008 19:48
Nice location, reasonable decor. Unreliable beer and rather overpriced.
SheffieldMickey - 2 Mar 2008 22:32
This pub is always welcoming, and the Fuller's beer is always in good nick. Nice to chat from the barman/landlord/manager from Vancouver. You never seem to get riff-raff here, so you can have a decent conversation without a load of noise or sports TV, unlike the George Abbot over the road.
Ale_Argonaut - 13 Dec 2007 09:47
My favourite pub in the whole of Guildford!

I love coming here because they�re always so darn friendly and chatty. :-)

I hadn�t been in for a little while when I came here last week but I noticed that they�ve had a bit of refit with new tables, sofas and a lick of paint by the look of it.

The changes are subtle but it looks very very good.

As did our barman - but enough of that! ;-)

The warm friendly atmosphere seems to attract lovely people as customers too, it�s always nice to meet new people when you�re out but it�s all very low pressure.

There are no rabid singles scanning the horizon for the next notch on the bedpost. (I understand that this is actually a disadvantage for some of you!)
Doyenne - 11 Dec 2007 21:42
The beer is very good. Three different Fullers beers. The food: forget it. Very expensive and small portions. Take the cheap option of a baked potato and they won't take the trouble to cook it through. Still, the beer is that good you won't notice you're eating raw potato... Internet connection �6 an hour. Why?
RAFsprog - 15 Nov 2007 20:29
Not the best of welcomes in here. Never much of an atmosphere, very over priced food for a pub!
anonymous - 22 Oct 2007 17:58
The wife and I visited on our way back from a wedding. We have never found a place this vile. My London Pride was flat and warm and the wife's white wine spritzer was okay but the lipstick on the glass did not match her colours! The toilets needed a good clean.
S_Emeny - 12 Sep 2007 23:56
Was in here for a couple of mid afternoon pints on Saturday. Weather was good so place was busy with people sat by the river. However, service was slow - 10 minutes at the bar for 2 pints. Funny thing was that there seemed to be loads of staff knocking about - couple more of them serving at the bar would have helped. Its a nice place though, comfortable and good facilities
atsoutar - 28 Aug 2007 09:04
ElDickster, if you are not a fan of lairy pubs, may i recommend you to the Gorldsworth Arms. They have a strict non-lairy policy.
aleman - 14 Aug 2007 18:48
Nice pub. Despite town centre location, it's not lairy at all. Bouncers on the door, but even they were pleasant chaps. Beer good too, but then it's a Fullers pub, so what do you expect?
ElDickster - 14 Aug 2007 18:39
The barman didnt happen to be a lovley Indian fella from America did he?
anonymous - 5 May 2007 13:20
Nice pub for a drink by the river but pricey drinks, pricey food
womble77 - 13 Apr 2007 17:21
The Goldilocks of Guildford pubs - everything is "just right"!

So many places are too pricey, too posey, too cool for school, too young, too rough or too crap.

The White House has a lovely, friendly, relaxed atmosphere. - I love sitting outside by the river in the spring and summer. It doesn't get much better than that.

The customers here are a lovely bunch. Everyone chats to you and when our group expanded somebody actually noticed and offered us a spare chair, andsomeone else took a group photo for us. How cool is that?

Plus, you can chat to the guy next to you at the bar without worrying that he's going to become your stalker for the evening. It's not a meat market type of place.

Which is not to say that there are not attractive men here. (There are plenty of them to keep me occupied!)

It's generally packed when I go, but I never have any trouble getting served at the bar. The glasses get cleared regularly but unobtrusively, and the place seems to run very smoothly.

When I was there last I was impressed by all the staff I met. One of the barmaids remembered what some of our group were drinking when we drunkenly forgot, and the barman who served us was just really friendly and professional. It's hard to be cheerful and chatty when you're rushed off your feet.

Our food was yummy too.

I think I've found my new local!
jackie_sunshine - 4 Apr 2007 01:18
would not bother with the quiz night here. It is unreliable as seems to be the case with most quiz nights. The only reliable quiz night is the George Abbot that i can think of in the area.

However it is still worth coming to for a drink. The Old Winter Ale is one of the seasonal offerings. Pretty pleasant but not quite as pleasant as the London Porter which is always good here.

Entertainment on offer at the moment includes open Mic Nights. Check what date before going it is unlikely to be obvious. Also a questionaire to take part in, special events for Valentines nights. And Six nations rugby to watch.

Also they have become very keen on anti smoking here, appears to very shortly be becoming a non-smoking pub. The ban officially comes into place in the summer of course
aleman - 31 Jan 2007 00:12
First pub quiz will be Tuesday 9th Janauary 2007
anonymous - 20 Dec 2006 16:28
Oh, so up and down. One month great, one month terrible. We'll keep coming back because it's more up than down.
petergoesrock - 12 Dec 2006 15:00
Appears there will be a quiz coming to this place shortly, something to look out for
anonymous - 12 Nov 2006 10:47
Improved a lot on a few years ago. Currently selling the seasonal Red Fox. Not going to dare to try that again, at least they do London Porter all year round
aleman - 4 Nov 2006 11:49
Welcome, at lunch time, good; food fine except a bit expensive; and the biter great - what more can I ask?
bthill - 3 Aug 2006 16:13
Good Fuller's pub (not as good as the King's Head on Stoke Road though). The GF spotted 3 girls who could be in Hollyoaks in there!
therivierakid - 31 May 2006 17:40
A good sized pub with decent beer but beware of "careless" barstaff. Overcharged �3 on a round of 2 drinks - i repeated the ammount and hesistated but the barman only checked when i queried the amount. Why does this still happen with computerised tills?
beerbear - 11 Apr 2006 01:05
Rediculous place. Was told to remove my hat upon entry(don't get me wrong, i respect house policy), but reason for request for removal? ''In case i start a fight''- well i wasn't going too......?!?!?!?
mooty123 - 7 Apr 2006 00:25
Has improved since a recent refub. Bar is a bit small for the size of the pub, so expect to wait for a drink at the weekend. Nice to sit up on the balcony on a summer night though.
Israfil - 7 Feb 2006 13:38
The food was pathetic and revolting and half the menu was unavailable. The staff were unsure where my sixteen year old son and I were allowed to sit in the pub, and had to find the manager. The manager himself found it appropriate to tell me where my son and I could sit, while chewing gum. I have been to the whitehouse when there was better management and now nothing is clear and the friendly staff are trying to cope with the little information that they are given for the customers.
james81 - 18 Oct 2005 18:26
Before the refurb it was looking abit tired but they've worked wonders with it now. Still a tad pricey but the food is excellent and the vibe has been re-injected. A nice place.
fivepints - 6 Jan 2005 09:13
We visited from Wales, and found the staff especially the managers bloody lovely. They made you very welcome, food and beer great too. Will definately visit again.

angie - 5 Dec 2004 20:36
Just moved to Guildford 2 months ago and this was one of the first pubs i tried and i was very impressed, the balcony upstairs is where we sat and it has a nice view over the river and up the main high street. The drinks are reasonably priced but could do with a student night or two. This is also one of the only pubs in the south that sells goldschlarger (spirit not the Grolsch larger) and it is soo nice... this is a fantastic pub with friendly staff and the food we ordered was hot and the portions were large. Excellent for a night out or a general day out with your mates... we have had many a laugh in this pub with photos and videos to prove it. Well done for the running of this pub!
Tai - [email protected] - 6 Oct 2004 18:51
We went to this pub for a farewell lunch for one of my colleagues and often go in on a Friday lunchtime - a lot of the time the staff are not the friendliest bunch but there are a few who are helpful. This time we preordered our food, I ordered a jacket potato which when it arrived was stone cold. During our lunch hour I did not complain as I did not want to wait for a fresh meal and they tend to get v busy - nice venue, good menu but could do better.

R Blackman - 17 Sep 2004 14:08
The honey dew is very nice here. Plus this pub often closes late. Just dont try going upstairs after closing time as you are at risk of being called a scumbag
aleman - 2 Aug 2004 16:20
Back open now -- although apparently not letting in anyone under 21! Don't expect that'll last.

Was in there lastnight for a few beverages. Typical Guildford level of priciness (so stay away from the fancy imported beers unless you've got a dedicated mortgage), but the place has improved dramatically. Nicer decor, they've opened up the conservatory so that it's now just part of the main room.
They've got rid of the furthest end of the bar (the bit that used to be against the back wall as you go in). And you no longer have to walk a strange, slightly seedy way to the toilets -- they're still in the same place, but the staircase is open and in the main bar area, a la Hogshead up the High Street.

Not sure how the clientelle will change. But now that they've finally got rid of the problem of the inside of the bar being a load of arse, while the outside was great in summer, it should turn into a cracking place to while away the evenings.

Provisional rating of 7... will have to wait and see what happens to the place.
Norn_Iron_Dave - 12 Mar 2004 16:55
Currently shut for refurbishment. Not sure how long this is planned to continue.
Rob - 12 Feb 2004 16:27
Very nice place to sit outside on a nice summer's day, but has the feel of a cold, dank village hall inside. Food is nice, but they don't serve after 6pm on Saturdays, which is a blunder. Service is variable, just like the atmosphere.
Norn_Iron_Dave - 22 Jan 2004 18:33
Ok but on ros� - mixed crowd (bit older generally) and open late at weekends
OpheliaImmortal - 23 Dec 2003 14:23
Beer selection and pricing very good indeed and food suitably robust. This is my haven when 17 year old daughter and 45 year old wife are going around the shops.
The conservatory is a hoot when it pours.

The service is the pits.. Worst in Guildford by far

Interiors a bit grim, and I've had the beers run out several times. Only redeeming feature is it's location.

Fantastic selection of burgers (named after american presidents) at very good prices. Be warned you may have to order chips separately. Good atmosphere if you are in a large group with plenty of group seating available.

balcony type thing. riverside. Nice quiet place on summer evenings. Scarily dodgy choice of 70s/80s music from time to time.
