Excellent food and cider! The Sunday roast was delicious, and not too big of a portion. Lots of outdoor seating and great atmosphere.

Had lunch here , in my lunch HOUR and service is always quick. I never feel rushed in the limited time . Good atmosphere and great location, by the river and on the edge of Guildford town centre. Lovely views and varied menu.

Stop here for something to eat and drink as we have ever been here before. Great selection of wine and very reasonable priced. And what a wonderful location sat on the river. Will be definitely coming back.
