Harden's survey result
“One of the best in the Greenwich area” – this three-storey Georgian tavern has a “beautiful garden” and “sits away from the main drag, so it’s not overly packed and touristy”. Chef Guy Awford is a well-known name in these parts having cooked at Inside (RIP) for many years, and is credited with some “brilliant cooking” here too. In mid 2019 it closed, to be totally transformed, with re-opening set for September 2019: if they get it half right, this will become Greenwich’s No. 1 destination. (Ratings are based on past performance: not yet post-revamp).
“Not your typical pub food, there’s real quality and great staff” at this three-storey Georgian boozer in Greenwich. “Attention to culinary detail” comes thanks to chef Guy Awford, previously of the area’s “late, lamented Inside restaurant (RIP)”. “Midweek lunch is exceptional value, given the quality”.
“A hidden gem we hope stays hidden” – this three-storey Georgian pub in Greenwich offers “great cooking and attentive but not intrusive service” in the upstairs dining room. Chef-director Guy Awford previously ran “the wonderful Inside” (RIP, long considered “the best in Greenwich”).
One of Greenwich’s better eating options – “a great pub”, with “tasty bar food”, “fine dining upstairs” and a really “delightful spacious garden”.

The Guildford Arms Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Greenwich has upped its game with the addition of this new gastropub. Food is much much better than the usual gastropub- this is restaurant quality, from starters (best salmon cake ever, not the soggy kind you generally get) to mains (fish cooked to perfection, duck done pink) to dessert (pear and almond pie is a must have). Renovated space is funky without trying too hard. The outdoor terrace must be fabulous in the summer. Staff are friendly. If this was in SW London, would be teeming with people even on a weekday."
