Pub Recommendation Thread #3425 (Guildford-centric)

eggs

#1

Any of you guys know of an decent ale pubs in the centre of Guildford? Pretty Ronseal, but I’m clueless and have a few hours to kill after work and before a leaving do.

Cheers in advance


#2

Drummond is good. Short walk from the town centre (under ten minutes from the station).


#3

Thought this would be the thread for me but can’t help you with real ale. Drummond is a good pub though, so will second that


#4

Drummond is nice. The Keystone and George Abbot are a bit closer to town and quite nice too.

Always a bit disappointed with pubs in Guildford. It’s crying out for a dedicated real ale/craft beer place.


#5

Was hoping for something like that (obviously). Will give the Drummond a go, 3/3 isn’t bad


#6

Britania might be another option. If you want to experience the sheer horror of Guildford go to the Kings head by the castle


#7

Get the brownie with hazelnut ice cream


#8

another vote for the Drummond. Not amazing, but alright for Guildford.

Try the Robin Hood if you’re after something a little less identikit Mitchel and Butlers.


#9

sheer horror of Guildford has to be the Wooden Bridge, surely?


#10

Back in the day used to end up smashed in the Five and Lime. Is that still open?


#11

Don’t think I’ve ever had the pleasure. Actually I think pews is worse than the Kings head, went there a few weeks ago and it was full of muscle bound bad tattooed alpha male types whose idea of a good night out was to spend the evening shouting at each other


#12

yep and same with me. I think its the only place I’ve been refused entry to because the small group I was with didn’t include any girls.


#13

actually, yeah, Pews is the worst in Guildford centre. I guess the Wooden Bridge is a little further out so doesn’t qualify.
