Great beer and good environment

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

We visited this pub with a couple of friends on a cold Saturday in December. First impressions of the pub were how immaculately clean and well presented it was. We ordered drinks and chose our table. After half an hour we ordered some meals. I ordered the Cod and hand cut chips,my wife ordered steak & ale pie with seasonal... More

We visited for a Saturday lunch after a bit of shopping. A rather fussy family is always difficult to cater for but this excellent pub was more than happy to help with menu changes. Great food at a good price and nice relaxed atmosphere. Recommended

Wasn't sure what to expect when we ordered food from here as sometimes pub grub isn't up to scratch but this place hits the spot. Excellent river front location, lovely food and a great selection of beers - ideal for a Sunday!

I love this pub, well placed at the bottom of town, a short walk from the railway station. In fine weather, it's great to sit in the riverside patio, and autumn/winter enjoy the log fires. A nice place to stop after trudging round the shops with my wife. It is always busy, so be prepared to wait 20-30 minutes for... More

Very warm and welcoming, set on the riverside. Selection of food and drinks. Good for friends, couple or families. Outdoor seating overlooking the river.

Turned up on a Saturday night and the place was pretty busy. My burger was amazing but 2 of the people had pizza's that were basically just drowned in cheese (not in a good way) so those weren't eaten. Good night out and good food- as long as you don't have the pizza!

Another late evening in Guildford with only a few options to choose from. This was the more popular of venus on the far side of the river so we made our choice that way. There were many seated outdoors enjoying a brew being it was Friday night. The choices were few on the menu but the quality of food was... More
