We booked a table for two for our 39th wedding anniversary, online. There was a box asking for comments, which I completed stating that it was our anniversary. The most I was hoping for was a quiet(ish) comfortable table, not squeezed inbetween any large groups. We were directed to a nice table towards the back of the restaurant which fitted... More

Another fantastic evening at the Guildhall Tavern - Valentine's night with full menu and specials. Unhurried, magnificent service and food. We had beautiful tasting Dover Sole, taken off the bone at the table. Excellent Crab soup for me and delicious prawns taken out of their shells for my other half. All washed down with Sancerre. Great atmosphere.
