Location and contact

Located in the historic Hudson’s Bay building in downtown Calgary, The Guild is open seven days a week for all-day dining, drinks and private events. Spanning two floors and featuring one of Calgary’s largest patios, The Guild is a nod to the guildhalls of the past, which served as meeting places for artists and merchants. Honouring local beef, game and fowl, and utilizing traditional cooking techniques over wood and coal, The Guild chefs are preparing a fitting homage to proud Canadian carnivores.

This is a great new place in a very old iconic building. very good menu. I tried the fish and chips, and it was anything but traditional, and very good. Great ambience, very efficient staff and highly recommended for lunch.

Great pizza, pasta and cellar wines for 1/2 price on Sunday. The food was excellent; chicken pesto pizza and grilled squash salad topped off with great carrot cake. The two of us shared and it was awesome!
