“Absolutely delicious fish, cooked to perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We went to the Guildhall for the first time earlier this week and can thoroughly recommend it. Friendly and welcoming and with good beer - and the pan-fried cod was absolutely excellent. We will definitely look forward to the next visit.

“Nice food good beer”

A pleasant walk to the to of the hill, had a couple of nice real ales and a ploughmans. Only downside for us was the pool table. Would visit again.

“Visits on 13/11/11 and 19/02/11”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Friendly and welcoming staff, fairly wheelchair-accessible, great choice of reasonably-priced food. Could do with a few more parking spaces but that could take away its charm.

“"The Catch of the Day" - the best English Fish & Chips version there is and more for absolute fair prices!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

The Guildhall is simply the place to go if you want to chill out in a cosy pub atmosphere, have a beer and maybe a nice and simple meal. And the couple running it are very lovely and welcoming people!
