We'd travelled over 300+ miles on the hottest day of the Summer so far so we looked for a good pub for a snack and an ice cold drink. The Star Inn is a charismatic, old bar on three levels with a beer garden out...More

Randomly popped in here for a pint and ended up ordering dinner... Really pleasantly surprised! Ordered a steak pie and it was one of the best pub meals I've had for a long time.

The best manager and staff. We have breakfast which has never failed, well done to the chef and kitchen, a generally thankless task but so appreciated getting amazing food, usually the salmon and eggs, scrambled or poached. And need I say, :), wine and beer...More

Randomly chose this pub for lunch. Relaxed atmosphere, nice "olde worlde" architecture with wood floors, original beams and low ceilings. Unobtrusive music in the background, easy to chat. We had sandwiches which were on decent bread and nicely served. Other choices included pub staples such...More

Description
We've been entertaining the people of Guildford for more than 400 years and we're proud to say that we're the area’s longest-running live music venue, showcasing some excellent acts including The Stranglers, who performed their first ever gig here!

Close to the vibrant shopping district, river and Guildford Castle, our 16th century pub is split over three levels and has been refurbished to the highest standards while maintaining many historic features.

With a real fire, an intimate courtyard garden and a host of snug and cosy corners, it is a great place to relax, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy traditional pub food and distinctive cask ales.

We even reputedly have our own ghost – a man in uniform who sometimes chats to guests!
