One of my favourite places in guildford. The beano is refreshingly different to much of what guildford has to offer. The food is fresh and delicious and very reasonably priced. There is always a great selection of mains with plenty of vegan options, and a...More

I went there today with my daughter and had the potato and leak pie and vegetable lasagne. The side salad of coleslaw was tasty and the food was not very spicy. It had fresh herbs in all the dishes and the food portions were generous....More

I have been here a few times over the last month the staff are alway friendly and happy to help. Food changes regularly which means there is always variety in whats avaliable. Nice find in a town which is over run with chain restaurants.

Nice food but very small portions - I would need to eat two plates to feel at all sated. I would rather pay more than leave feeling hungry, which is what has happened on four occasions I have eaten here. I have always gone back...More
