The Woodbridge is certainly one of our go to locations for a fast meal, with serves each beneficiant and cheap, and is certainly one of 4 pubs inside shut strolling distance of our place in Guildford. An previous heritage pub, with reside music once in a while, an eclectic assortment of promoting hoardings on the partitions, a bottle shop across the aspect, this place has an awesome environment.
It is all the time very fashionable, and this Tuesday lunchtime was no exception – a big posse of bowlers crammed the again eating space, and the smaller entrance room was full by the point we left, and out entrance extra packed the backyard having fun with the winter sunshine.
The wine listing is small however there’s all the time one thing on it to draw the attention and the palate, whereas the menu is conventional pub grub fashion, however very properly cooked and introduced, fast to be served, and enormous in proportion – deliver your urge for food.
A bottle of the very nice Vinaceous Wines Salome Tempranillo Rosé was simply the factor – a bouquet of rose petals, cherries and musk, adopted by a crisp dry palate of raspberries and cranberries.
On to the meals – mushroom stroganoff and pulled lamb sandwich.
The stroganoff was a big serve of combined mushrooms cooked in a bitter cream -based sauce, paprika and gherkins including to the flavour. Glossy and filled with hearty wintery flavours, this got here with creamy mash and crisp broccolini. This was a really fulfilling dish; one I’ll definitely have once more.
The pulled lamb – superbly tender – was served in toasted bread together with bacon, coleslaw and mayo – and a big serve of chips – with tomato sauce to dip. The chips on the Woody are all the time completely spot on – splendidly crisp and crunchy outdoors, superbly floury inside – best chips round Guildford we expect.
So that was that – one other excellent feed on the Woodbridge – we slipped round to the bottle shop for a bottle or two after which have been on our approach. Be again nevertheless!
