The White House which is on the river Wey has just had a make over which is a huge improvement. It is now frequented by younger drinkers but also families at the weekend. There are heaters set up in part of the outside space but the whole area is fairly small. I was in there last Friday evening and the... More

Hi Thanks for the review On Friday we had 4 behind the bar and checking the cameras at no point was there one person behind the bar, however we did have about 150 people in the pub and this does take time to make sure everyone is served. We were also doing table service for people in the bar area... More

We live near the White House, but hadn't been for a while, as previously unimpressed. Following the refurb, and new management, we decided to retry. So glad we did! Delicious roasts, and excellent service. The meat was perfectly cooked, and the nut roast was particularly good. Our waitress was knowledgeable and experienced, and managed our baby grabbing her every time... More

Popped in here to see how the refurb had gone and was rather disappointed. Gone are the comfy chairs to while a way a few hours, instead hard benches - no cushions & tall counters with stools (one with snug). they do still have more of a restaurant seating area should you be wanting a proper meal. However, the food... More

My friends and I recently visited the White House for dinner and to check out the refurbishment! We were seated in the new conservatory area, which was really lovely as it was early evening and being next to the river made for lovely views, but woth the bonus of being inside. We decided to try the sharing plates, and being... More

This place was a regular for us, family and friends. They closed, and redecorated. Also, new management. The good news, well, it needed a bit of tarting up, and its been done well. The food, nothing special but perfectly good. That's it. All the good points covered in two. Now the rest. We booked a week in advance for 6,... More

The white house was closed for a refurbishment and it looks good! I had dinner there recently with colleagues to say goodbye to my previous job. The pub was very flexible as I wasn't too sure how many guests would turn up for my leaving dinner. I even received a free drink from the staff, it was a nice send... More

Never written a review online before but felt compelled to comment on how good this place is! Since the refurb have been in twice and already made a booking for 3rd visit. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and beats any other pub food in Guildford by far. Great service again by the same girl (think her name was Megan) looking forward... More
