Our History


Our History

A Community Staple for Decades


The Guildhall Tavern has been part of the community for many decades with guests sharing lovely stories from the 60’s up to present day.

The property was recently purchased by a local business man in early 2022 who was keen that the iconic venue did not lose its charm. It’s been lovingly refurbished with the addition of a beautiful cocktail lounge.

Recently awarded 2 AA rosettes and a strong listing in Hardens guide.


After waiting 6 months for our first AA inspection, october was D day when our inspector arrived for lunch and dined off our exclusive set menu. On paying the bill we were made aware that she was our AA inspector. Our feedback was superb, and the highest accalade achievable is 2 rosettes on your first inspection. We are hoping to increase this to the coveted 3 rosettes this year.

Our Hardens listing is one of the strongest in the local area.
