Lunch at the Guildford Institute

The lady who did the excellent Friday  lunches at the Guildford Institute has now left. I enjoyed the last of her excellent cooking three weeks ago and said a sad farewell. Yes, it is still possible to have lunch at the Guildford Institute, but I do not recommend. Today’s fare simply did not compare.

To make matters worse, a price hike.

A meal deal, main course with two salads, a fruit juice, a dessert, plus a pot of tea, was less than a tenner.

Today, meal deal, main course with two salads, no fruit juice, a dessert, a cup of tea not a pot of tea, was £10-50.

The leftovers were being emptied into plastic boxes. Does this mean to be served up another day? I hope not.

As always, excellent lunch at the Guildford Institute,

For main course, chickpea bake with three salads.

Followed by key lime pie.

A rather strange and pretentious review of eating out at the Guildford Institute in Surrey Life, written by the editor.

Insultingly compares it with a canteen, drinks diet coke (welcome to carcinogenic aspartame), insults some of the regulars by suggesting they have been dining their since the building opened.

Excellent lunch at the Guildford Institute.

Chickpea bake and salad, followed by a pavlova.

On the walls, an exhibition of watercolours of buildings on the Surrey-Hampshire border.

Two books recommended for the Guildford Institute Library, This Changes Everything and Revolution.

Last week, little food left, and what I had, the only thing that was left, was not very good.

Today, a long queue, but plenty of food left, though some of the choices had already gone.

Chickpea bake with three salads.

For dessert a crumble with cream, washed down with a pot of tea.

All were excellent.
