I can confirm that Bar Centro at this location is now Britten's which is a new upscale English restaurant opened by head chef Daniel Britten, 2008 Masterchef contestant. We enjoyed Britten's very much.

Bar Centro is just behind the main streets - a little gem - great service - and as I dont eat cheese this was no problem at all - great pasta and seafood - wife loved her pizza too - lovely bottle of wine - Gavi - that just made it all the better

I made a large group booking here for a friend's Hen Party meal. We ordered the Party Menu 1 which was perfect - good selection and everyone could pick their main courses. The food was well above average and I think it makes a big difference that the people running this restaurant are actually Italian; it's great that it's not... More

It's been too long since my last trip here! Great food, great service, couldn't ask for more! The staff are fantastic with children, although the restaurant as a whole has a grown up, sophisticated feel.

I was first introduced to bar centro by a friend of mine having lived in Guildford many years and not been aware of it. Since then we've been back many times and the food is always great. They do great home made pasta, including ravioli with prawns which is a personal favourite. Salads are also very good. All the produce... More

I always make sure we visit Guilford near lunchtime. All the family likes the food and the friendly service. Good pizza and specials are always a good addition to the extensive menu. Will go back on my future visits to Guildford!

Bar Centro has been around for years. Run by a couple of Italians, Lorenzo and Robbie who are we'll known in Guildford town. The pasta is superb, I cant comment on the pizza as I don't eat it. Don't be afraid to go off piste with the specials of the day because they are worth it. They change daily and... More

I am only a 5 min walk from Bar Centro, and for me it is one of the best places to eat in Guildford. It does not have the most extensive menu, but the quality of the food is alway good. It well worth checking out the specials board as this changes on a daily basis. The service is excellent.

The food here never failed and always delighted all that joined us. However, I always found it to be slightly uncomfortable. Not the type you will chill and spend an evening in. Staff helpful and friendly. Go for the food.

I ate here with a girl friend recently. The food was delicious, it was good value and we had a pleasant evening. The Affogato dessert is particularly good. They even made it with decaffeinated coffee for me!
