Introducing 'The Social'

The Social

New restaurant, bar & lounge at Guildford Harbour Hotel

March 2020

On 6th March 2020, Guildford Harbour Hotel will be throwing open the doors to its brand new restaurant and bar concept, 'The Social'.

A soon-to-be Guildford institution, 'The Social' offers a relaxed all-day vibe; with a free-flowing restaurant and bar that welcomes guests throughout the day. From small plates, to Afternoon Tea with a twist, a ‘social sharer’ or drinks at the bar – come anytime, for anything. The space is yours to use as you wish.

With an emphasis on casual, social dining, the restaurant and bar will feature a variety of sharing plates for all to tuck into. From the garden board, to shish & kebabs and a baked cheese board, the new sharers are perfect for groups of friends looking for a light bite with drinks. Alternatively, choose a selection of small plates and build your own.

The all-day menu features exciting dishes from both land and sea. Freshly prepared by our chefs, the menu covers an inspiring variety of beautiful meat and fish, small plates and bar bites alongside some Harbour classics. From ash cooked leeks, to an incredible picanha steak - all tastes and dietary requirements are catered for.

The space is relaxed – think big oversized seating and comfy sofas, alongside dining tables and chairs; all with Harbour Hotels’ typically vibrant design. There is a private area to watch sporting events and even a fireplace for you to relax next to. The restaurant’s unique sunken seating area is the perfect private space to gather with friends for a late lunch, rolling into evening drinks.

Saturday brunch at The Social is something not to be missed. With a great menu and live music to set the mood, brunch can be enjoyed from 10am until 4pm every Saturday. Sundays are all about the roasts; with both individual plates and huge roast sharing plates (shoulder of lamb, whole chicken or Italian Porchetta), weekends at The Social are sure to become a major event.

Shining a light on local spirits, wines and beers, guests can expect an eclectic drinks menu; including exciting new cocktails alongside signature classics. The weekend will see the tempo lift, with DJs on Fridays and Saturdays, playing until 2am.

The place to be when the big games are on, the bar area will now feature additional screens and a pool table; creating a lively atmosphere.
