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

Popped in for a snack and a glass of wine in the sunshine after a long walk, and sat in the lovely airy glass room overlooking the river. Very attentive staff (forgot to ask his name but he was a drama student), chatty and knowledgable. I've never been in before it was refurbished but they've managed to create a cosy... More

Starters ( meatballs, cod cheeks and calamari ) were really tasty and whetted our appetite. The mains ( burgers ) were a bit bland - most of the pubs around do really tasty ground beef - this was like a mass-produced tasteless thing with lettuce and pickle to complete the McDonalds affect. Food is a little pricey - £6 for... More

Hi Sorry you didn't like our burgers, the are made freshly and not mass produced. We use fresh baby gem lettuce, plum tomatoes, red onions and gherkin in our own toasted brioche bun The pricing is the same as most Guildford pub and we use the finest ingredients on our menu. Glad you like the refurb Michelle More

Service is good and the place is pleasant whether in the summer (outside) or in the winter. Beers are well kept and well served. Food is disappointing though - menu is limited. Just keep drinking!

I met some friends here last Sunday for a pre Christmas drink and lunch. The pub is warm and welcoming and caters for small children which was great as we had one with us. The menu was what you would expect from a pub/bistro and as it was a Sunday they also had a great selection of Sunday roasts on... More
