Guildford Arms

Stylish bar and restaurant on two floors, imaginative food, thoughtful drinks choice and friendly atmosphere; pretty garden

The good pub guide review

With a bow-fronted Georgian exterior, this corner pub in residential Greenwich is designed more for an excellent meal than a casual drink ' though they do have a small bar where they keep two local beers on tap (perhaps from Brockley and Villages microbreweries), Umbrella cider (from north London), a good wine list and cocktails. The modern, open-plan bar has minimalist décor, contemporary chairs and tables on bare boards and high chairs by the counter and more by window shelves. The lower ground-floor dining room features an open charcoal-grill kitchen and leads out to a pretty outdoor space with seats and tables under parasols, trees and lighting spread across a terrace and garden. Upstairs, the restaurant is stylish, with abstract art and photos of food producers on pale grey walls and dark chairs and tables on carpet.

The good pub guide food review

Tasty, beautifully presented food includes vegetarian, fish and meat 'feasting menus' (for two), charcoal-grilled dishes such as prawn and monkfish skewers with basil mayo or spatchcocked chicken with chipotle and lemon and tomato salsa, bar food such as fish pie or burger and chips, seasonal salads, and puddings such as orange, almond and polenta cake with pomegranate and crème fraiche and plum, sloe and almond crumble.
