Food is lovely here. Steak is absolute juice! Definitely worth heading out to Greenwich to try the food here and also enjoy a great alfresco experience!


A beautiful new terrace and lovely garden make this one of the best pubs in London with alfresco dining. Great menu plus good beers and wine mean it's worth the trip to Greenwich to try out The Guildford Arms. Great Private dining room on the top floor too!


Went there on the last day of summer '12 with a large group of friends, who had travelled a long way to be there. The garden was lovely, but everything else really disappointing - the steak was massively undercooked, food incredibly slow, as was service... we had to keep going inside to get menus, drinks, find out what was happening with food etc. Sad to say I wont go there again, and would advise others to go anywhere else


I attended a wedding reception in the Guildford Arms late last year. All was going fine, food was good but... at around 7pm the staff turned off the music and the whole reception got turfed out even tho we had the room till close. the staff were extremely unapologetic and had the BRIDE IN TEARS before we all had to leave. reason? they wanted more covers for the evening restaurant. The Guildford Arms destroyed what would have been a perfect evening. message to the pub: in future please be aware of the responsibility you have when holding a wedding reception and dealing with the most important day of a couples lives.


Have been to eat here many times, ranging from boozy lunch with old mates in the bar, to dinner with my wife in the first floor dining room. The staff are unfailingly polite and helpful , and I have never been disappointed with the food. I think it is a much nicer place to eat than its sister,Inside.


Excellent gastropub...lacking in the 'pub' department. The Guildford is a very pleasant gastro pub just far enough from the town centre to deter the tourists. Excellent menu and some of the best pub food in Greenwich (as you'd expect from Guy Awford who also owns Inside on Greenwich High Road). Upstairs is a fine dining restaurant - pricey but worth it for special occasions. Downstairs is a less complex but still very well executed pub menu. It's worth visiting in the Summer for the sprawling and well kept garden alone. Only problem here is the atmosphere. Whilst there is a bar as you walk in, there's no room for bar stool drinking and taking a table just for drinks is frowned upon (at least, it feels that way). So the vibe is closer to a restaurant that just happens to be in a pub, rather than a true gastro pub. Because of the food rather than drink focus, the place starts to wind down around 10 and the staff are queing up to leave by 10.30 - no late night sessions or lock ins here. If it's very good pub food you're after, definitely give it a go. If it's a boozy night and a couple of packets of crisps to keep you going, Greenwich has better offerings.


Had a brilliant afternoon. Got in out of the rain to find a warm welcome. Twenty Four of us celebrating a birthday. Ages 5 - 75 all catered for magnificently. A couple of drinks followed by one of the best sunday lunches I have had in a long time - beautiful! Staff great, surroundings great. Think I'll go again next week.

Had a brilliant meal at the Guildford. Wonderfully central location in Greenwich. We had a private dining room which had beautiful and plush, comfortable decor. The service was excellent, really friendly and accomodating. We had a load of children with us who were also treated so well and made to feel especially welcome. Childrens' portions were available and the kids all got a tour of the kitchen! The food was wonderful. My fishcakes were well seasoned and creamy in texture and my partner's risotto pleased him too.I had lamb as a main which was cooked well and accompanied by the most amazingly spiced red cabbage. Great flavour combinations.My daughter says her mashed potato was so buttery..."best mash ever!" and she loved the torpedo shape in which it was presented. Custard was freshly made and rhubarb had just the right amount of sharp zing to it. Do go, you'll not be disappointed.

Front of house very good, polite and friendly. Poor food. Seven of us went to celebrate aunt's 91st birthday. Soup had to go back as Luke warm, had to wait over ten mins for more toast to go with pâté. Lamb really tough and whole main course nomt hot enough. coffee Luke warm. Not as if it was full either so no excuse. Wouldn't go back
