Friendly, helpful, attentative Staff. Any time I visit, I'm made to feel welcome, entertained and thoroughly satisfied.
The staff make this pub. Karen, Kev, Dan, Andrew, Calista, Callum and Beth all make you feel valued and welcome. Turtle is also a great host when managing.
The food is well made and presented. Quiz night is a treat and Karen hosts this with great Enthusiasm and entertainment value.
I have been attending here for quiz night for a couple of months and have always enjoyed this experience.
The feel here is laid back, relaxed and accepting of lgbt and other minority members of the community.
Safe, welcoming and competitive prices with good value food and drinks offers available.
Thanks to Karen and her great team.

We have been using the Guild as our local for over 20 years. It’s has very friendly staff and they provide a great pint of San Miguel and good choice of wine or Prosecco for my wife at a very reasonable price. All delivered in a warm atmosphere: well done to Karen and her team.

The Guild is a fantastic bar with a cozy and elegant ambiance. Michael, one of their exceptional staff members, consistently goes above and beyond to provide great service and ensure that patrons have a memorable experience. I highly recommend the Guild and Michael for anyone in search of a great bar to have a drink with friends.

Popped in for a work lunch with a couple of colleagues. Was superbly looked after by Danny and Karen... Both very attentive and it was a shame to have to go back to work!

Will be back to check out that beer garden sometime soon as well!
