It’s always busy, you never get a seat, constantly getting nudged and having to fight to and from the bar. But it’s an outstanding pub, possibly one of the best in the world.
Constantly changing lineup of 8 great real ales and a fabulous selection...More
In here every time I visit the city.
Always good beer available, staff are pleasant, building is a nice place to be and there always seems to be a buzz about the place...even when we've arrived near opening time.
We were recommended by a friend to go to this pub, which luckily was close by to our hotel near St. Andrew's Square. It is a pub brimming with personality and charm which, in comparison, is hard to find South of London.
We went up...More
We popped in, hoping to grab some lunch. They were very busy so we had a drink. The staff were very friendly and gave honest estimates about length of time for a table. Alternatively they offered a recommendation for somewhere else.
The Guildford is a busy pub, popular with locals and tourists alike. Quite close to the station so handy for a cheeky pint on the way home. They serve a wide range of draft beer and always have a selection of guest beers which are...More

An old Victorian bar, splendidly decorated, nice atmosphere, many people. Experienced barmen, knowing their beer. To eat something, even if it is a small snack, one needs to go upstairs. Tired looking waitresses. The mackerel pate and shrimp fritters tasted processed and the oatcakes tasted...More
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
