Brilliant drink choice, cosy bar area and the staff are so friendly, really lovely pub that's away from the usual hustle and bustle of general Guildford nightlife.

The Mrs and I visited recently and we're regular visitors however I've noticed a bit of a change. The moment you walk in you can smell the toilets. And I'm afraid to say the condition of the gents leaves much to be desired. I know I shouldn't review a pub based on the loos but they really are quite bad!... More

I had a dinner here last night and the food was delicious. Fresh and home made, plenty to eat and good value for money. A lovely cosy little pub, very relaxed and very friendly and welcoming. Give it a try !

If you are in Guildford and the need lunch with a good pint then this is the place. The Keep has a regular change of guest beers and most of these are from local breweries which is great. Also the food is well cooked and great value. The Keep is well worth visiting.

Lovely food with choice of daily specials. Friendly staff and great atmosphere. There are two bars, the upstairs Castle lounge is also available for private hire and several of my friends have had successful dinners here

Went here for drinks, great atmosphere. Tables all lit with candles and a romantic feel. A range of sofas and chairs which I always appreciate. Good music and friendly staff. What more could you asl for from a pub.

I recently took friends visiting from USA here for lunch and we all enjoyed our home cooked lunch. The barman gave us a warm welcome and our food arrived in good time. Although I've lived in the area for many years this was my visit to The Keep...i shall definitely go when next time town. Thank you
