Fish and Chips

I figured that I had to try the fish and chips. When we went we went in a very large group after a conference, so they might have been overwhelmed. The service was good regardless. However, the portion sizes for most of my colleagues were relatively small (not just my American colleagues, but also... read more

I recently had my Sisters baby shower at the White house. We were offered the private terrace at the top of the White house- which gave stunning views looking over the river. On arrival each guest was greeted with a glass of Prosecco, which set the atmosphere for a perfectly beautiful day! We were then served food which included baked... More

Had the best time last week. The bar staff are great and are more than happy to help you experiment with new cocktail ideas. We discovered some new ones to add to our list for the future! Lovely riverside garden to enjoy the summer evenings. Such a great setting. Why can't all town centre pubs be like this?

On a hot day, the large outside seating area is a big draw to the White House. We arrived mid afternoon and sat just inside as we waited for an outside table to become available. Meantime Yakima Red on tap was a winner.

I always think a burger is a good yardstick - if you can't prepare a good burger, you may as well shut up shop! I wasn't asked how I'd like it cooked so I expected it to be grey and dry and so it was. The chollah bun was nice and there were the usual salady bits inside, but it... More

I booked the private room for my boyfriends birthday. It's a great pub on the river in guildford and has recently been refurbished and looks great. The private room is upstairs and comes with a balcony over looking the river which was great as it was a beautiful summer's evening. It's a great space and Michelle and her team did... More

We had the most amazing day at the White House on Sunday. It was a beautiful location by the river. We had the upstairs private room. Michelle and her staff were fantastic. Must say thank you to the chefs who did us so proud with the food. We had mini burgers, spring rolls, crayfish cocktail, beef and roast Yorkshires and... More

I went here for some after work drinks with my coworkers (they're locals) and was impressed with the wide selection and friendly bartenders.
