Featured Guildford Restaurants
1. The Thai Terrace Thai restaurant in Guildford Castle Car Pk, Sydenham Rd - GU1
For “fabulous Thai food with an equally fabulous view”, this quirky Guildford feature – somewhat bizarrely located over a multi-storey car park – is just the ticket, “especially on a warm evening with a cocktail in hand!”
2. Rumwong Thai restaurant in Guildford 18-20 London Rd - GU1
The “lovely” Thai food “never disappoints” at this “perfect local”, which has maintained its standards for four decades, remaining “the same as ever with an unchanging menu” of “delicious and authentic” dishes. Diners have the option to eat from low tables in the ‘khan tok’ room, seated on cushions northern Thai-style.
3. March Hare Mediterranean restaurant in Guildford 2-4 South Hill - GU1
2018 Review: Launched in 2015, this “renovated inn” (“sort of pubby and restaurant-y at the same time”) is part of Raymond Blanc’s White Pub Company chain – a “really pleasant” spot, combining stylish decor, Guildford Castle views and a “strong French-themed menu that’s well presented and delivered”.
4. Queen’s Head British, Modern restaurant in East Clandon The Street - GU4
2017 Review: A “friendly and comfortable” Surrey Hills spot that’s part of a “lovely small chain of local food pubs” (the Red Mist Group); “quality cooking and service” make it “great for both couples and families”.
5. The Ivy Castle View British, Modern restaurant in Guildford Tunsgate Square, 98-100 High Street - GU1
“One has to ignore the twenty-somethings who spend their entire time selfie-ing themselves here, including in the loos”, but otherwise “the setting is excellent” at this castle-view spot, “and having been to The Ivy in London numerous times this is a pretty good knock-off”. As per others in the chain, “the food probably needs to be better, but we enjoy it and will certainly go back”. Top Tip – “afternoon tea is served in an unhurried way”.
