“Delicious”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Took a friend for a quiet lunch at the Guildhall Tavern. The place was full but managed to stay intimate. The food was delicious - I had the scallops for starters which were sweet, buttery and very fresh. For main course I chose the monk fish which was cooked to perfection in a delicious sauce. The service was excellent too - discreetly attentive, just how it should be.

All in all a delightful experience. I will definitely go again.

“An Honest Opinion.”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Ok had a Christmas Party at the Guidhall Tavern,I always give an unbiased and true review.
On entering (on a very cold night) the heat in an overcrowded restaurant was over bearing,tables close together to pack people in.
Attentive staff.
Bought 2 small wines(pay first & not include on your bill) nearly fainted as the price was nearly £14.00 well overpriced.
The starter was well presented but bland.Shop brought not made.
Turkey was only rolled turkey,again tastless and again probably shop brought.
Only a few Veg and Roast spuds.
Pudding very bland and again shop brought.

Overall very expensive for what it was,not value for money.

The only thing try it here but dont expect too much and some of the hype given to this restaurant is well over the top.
