Please book early to avoid disappointment.

Kick off the festive season at the Institute’s very own Christmas lunches and chose from two available dates (Thursday 19 and Friday 20 December).

This special event is a popular annual tradition for many and this year will benefit from a fresh menu offering by our talented new caterers in the V Café.

You will enjoy a tasty two-course meal accompanied by seasonal tunes and a light-hearted quiz.

You can select from two vegetarian main courses with a festive twist and two delicious puddings, then complete your meal with coffee/tea and mince pies.

See the full menu below (choices will be taken a few weeks prior to the date):


Money Bags – tasty parcels filled with cranberries, caramelised onions, aubergines and walnuts (vegan), served with roasted seasonal vegetables


Mushroom Bourguignon – hearty and rich vegetarian take on this classic dish, with chestnuts and baby onions served with fluffy rice


Christmas pudding with brandy sauce


Portugese Custard Tarts with Crème Fraiche


Coffee / Tea and mini mince pies

Drinks available to purchase from the restaurant on the day (including mulled wine).

Please email amymason@guildford-institute.org.uk with any group table reservation requests.
