    Great food as always and lovely staff. Great venue, but only if you can sit outside. The noise levels inside are just so loud it makes it a far from relaxing place to be. Sitting at the tables inside you literally have to shout over the other tables to get yourself heard.

    Beautiful place. We sat outside in the sun (and the wind!) and the view and general ambience. Service was good bit inattentive at times but generally friendly, and a lovely experience overall. Would definitely go again

    It is not OK to bring vacuum out & start vacuuming when customers still seated & eating. The smell produced was quite rancid. Even more so it’s inexcusable to bring a mop & bucket out to start washing floors. We would not have experienced this had our table been ready on time & not delayed 20 mins as would have departed before cleaning in progress. Clean after you customers leave not still whilst there!! Not bad stars given in some areas as food & service good. However, will be a while now before we venture back & then will avoid closing times at all costs.

    Had a really wonderful meal at the Old Guinea in Ridge tonight. Beautiful food, drink service and ended with coffee outside looking out across Hewitt's Farm fields and beyond. The wind had dropped, sun came through, clouds danced and half a rainbow made an appearance. Really special evening and staff were all friendly and helpful. Sometimes things just work. Fab 😁

    Table was a little cramped as we have to revert to being inside - but appreciated being able to change as it was so windy outside. We also had a dog with us so this limited our table choice inside - but it was fine. Food was delicious and good value - we all said we would definitely eat there again.

    The food was outstanding and friendly staff, however, the male staff member of staff was incompetent I would put it down to nerves or being a newbie. Firstly, when he served my beer from the tray he spilt some of my beer on the table, we then ask for more garlic butter and showed him what the garlic butter was , he then gave us tomatoe ketchup in a pot.. we said no we want garlic butter and showed and said what it was he then went and brought back maynase sauce.. we then said again we want garlic butter..so the 3rd time he got it right. Food was amazing and he was apologetic but he was just a bit clueless

    All perfect , it’s just that your waitress seemed less happy than I was to be there. It’s a shame as it did alter my experience on that day. It was my wedding anniversary and while the day was not spoiled, it would have just been nice to have smiley happy waiting staff . Previously I have had excellent service at your lovely establishment

    Dining here is always a pleasure, courtesy of the wide range of pizzas, wines and beers that are always on offer. But when the sun shines and the skies clear - as was the case for our recent visit - an opportunity to dine outside and take in The Old Guinea's unrivalled view over the Hertfordshire countryside should never be missed.
