Restaurant Review: The Guildford

On Saturday night I went for dinner at The (or should it be le?) Guildford in Greenwich. Last time I visited the pub, it was your local boozer that also served food. It relaunched itself a while ago as a French gastro pub (admittedly quite a while ago, I just haven't been recently!).

Most of the pub has been given over to dinning tables. If you just wanted a drink you are restricted to a sofa in the corner or the garden. The food felt classically French and all the tables were full creating a good atmosphere. For the main courses we had slow roasted pork belly, grilled sea bass, roast duck and an entrecote steak. All of the dishes came with tasty vegetables and, strangely, fiercy hot plates that radiated heat.

For dessert we shared a tarte aux pommes, chocolant fondant and peach mousse. I love French patisserie and think they do the best desserts in the world.

All in all it was good to (rediscover) another reasonably priced local restaurant.

  5. Err...thanks. You do realise that the Guildford Pub I have reviewed is in Greenwich and not actually in Guildford...?
