The short drive or bus ride from Guildford town centre to the peaceful suburb of Merrow is worth it to discover Ashuka Tandoori, the area’s premier Indian eatery. Promising an inspiring East-West fusion experience for the seasoned consumer of food from the subcontinent and for the uninitiated alike, it has a vast menu of curries, rolls, fritters, meat cuts, rices, salads and breads, ranging in price from around £5 to £95 (for the Chef’s special Kurzi lamb).
Part of The Angel Hotel, an old coaching inn in the centre of town, Bill’s Guildford restaurant is very pretty. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between, this is the perfect place to take a break from shopping. The lower floor is stunning at night time, with stone floors, archways and vaulted ceilings. The restaurant also has a private dining room for up to 35 people.
Another great venue for an exotic meal is La Casita, a much-loved Spanish restaurant. In an authentic and homely setting, visitors can savor giant sharing terrines of fresh paella, satisfying meat and fish mains or some traditional Spanish tapas, rounded off by a filling dessert from the extensive menu. The tapas selection is particularly rich and includes plenty for vegetarians, vegans and diners with nut allergy. If you and your dining companions have varying needs, this dining spot is an excellent choice.
