Fuller's; estimable brewer of quality beers and of formerly high renown, now seemingly gone the way of all the other pubcos. Perhaps I can suggest some training that you could deliver to your customer assistance operatives at this outlet (just trying to use language the PR managers might understand). You see, it's quite disappointing to receive around 8.5 tenths of... More

Visited here last week with some friends, the staff were lovely but unfortunately the food was terrible!!! They had run out of some items on the menu, which wasn't a great start. I had a burger, which was pretty much inedible! So over cooked and chewy, a few other people had burgers that were the same. What a shame, lovely... More

We both had a day off and decided to make the most of the unusual sunshine and have lunch at The White House. We decided to sit outside and sat for a while before a member of staff came out to say we don't do table service outside! Well it have been nice to have given us some menus and... More

Mushroom soup 5 stars. Scotch Egg, 5 stars, service 5 stars, meal was mostly shared smaller dishes which was great fun. View could be better. Just attention to detail let's the place down ever so slightly. I am probably being picky to give 4 rather than 5, because the family really enjoyed this place.

The White House is a great pub sitting right by The River Wey in central Guildford. Been there many times and will definitely go again but Sunday Roast Beef wasn't there finest hour and at £16 is one of the more expensive roasts on sale in pubs in Guildford.

One of our party was in a wheelchair and this pub is very disabled friendly. The decor is quirky and fun. The pub grub is usual favourites, but there are some nice additions. I really enjoyed my smoked chicken with Waldorf salad and crispy blue cheese balls. Delicious!

Many thanks for leaving us such a shining review! We are happy to announce a new summer menu with some dishes you may find surprising for a pub such as the Asian Duck Salad with a spicy sweet chilli sauce and some delicious sharing anti-pasta platters. We look forward to you visiting in the future, all the best Poppy More
