Theydon_Bois  (807) Tourist Town (West), England | December 21, 2014
Vicorian boozer about a 5 minute walk from Waverly station so ideal if you have a quick change of trains, just take the stair case up onto Princess St and youíll wind your way there. Large ceiling, big bay window, snug feel to the place, largely local clientele plus a few travellers. About 10 cask lines, largely Scottish micro fayre with a few Engels thrown in. Solid trad boozer, ideal for Waverly.

Beershine  (793) The Sunshine State, Florida | September 24, 2010
One of the most attractive pub interiors in Edinburgh. Compelling to visit and linger. Opulent and gilded decor, roaring 20s come to life. Clientele and staff can be appropriately genteel but itís still a casual place. Around the corner from a similarly characterful place called the Cafe Royal but the Guildford is more spectacular. Excellent location nr. Princes St. Beer selection and quality can be very good. Has a restaurant upstairs, but didnít eat there.

Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | September 2, 2007
An absolutely beautiful, rather large and very busy pub that does not lack atmosphere. The 5 waiters behind the small counter were all very busy. Only scottich ales were being served, albeit not the most exciting, on the 10 hand-pumps. Its central location, authentic (if a bit tourist-gatherer) feel and vast selection can only make it a must stop really.

A large, sprawling Victorian pub right in the centre of town. They have a great range of casks and I tried several solid beers on my visit - all in good condition. Average pricing, pretty efficient staff. Certainly not a beer geek place, but youíll definitely find some good beers here. And the location is quite convenient.

imdownthepub  (527) Banbury, England | April 22, 2012
Rather a grand and spectacular Victorian style pub in a very central location, very handy for the buses. Big windows, plenty of light, plenty to look at. Good for Scottish micro brewery beers. Met Craig in here, he had an inkling we would start there. Nice buzz about the place, but as mentioned before, quite pricey.

MartinT  (521) Montreal, Quebec | January 11, 2007
A beautiful, formal-looking Victorian pub serving 8 cask ales at all times, with no apparent regulars. Of course, they have plenty of tap macros to fit that bill. I went twice in a 2-week period, and the selection had completely changed. Nice variety too, from bitter to old ales, from brewpubs and micros hidden in the Scottish countryside to ones scattered over the British border. The haggis in whisky sauce I had was excellent as a starter, but the rest of the meals were twice as expensive as the ones you can get at Halfway House (for example), so we passed. If you want selection and a classy pub atmosphere, Guildford Arms cannot disappoint you.

Been twice now. It does get crowded; the atmosphere is great though, and the real ale selection is difficult to beat. Foodís good, but you have seen something like most of it elsewhere. Go for the real ale. You are likely to see something new to you.

pivnizub  (491) Bochum, PorķřŪ, Germany | September 6, 2007
Large "classic" Victorian pub with a quite good, but not sensational selection of well-kept ales. Friendly service, quiet atmosphere. A good stop, when You finish the dangerous tour down from the Carlton Hill.....

Scopey  (457) Croydon, England | July 21, 2013
Visited a few times so far, most recently for a quick half between train transfer at Waverley. Guildford Arms is a rather grand pub with a focus on quality cask ale. 10 taps on offer as well as a few bottles. On my last visit they had a mini Oakham fest so the range was half Oakham, half Scottish Micros. Good condition. A pretty great traditional pub in a rather central location. Always worth stopping past.
