The views outside were beautiful, but I would definitely not recommend dining at the Bistro. We went to the Bickford Bistro for their mother's day dinner, had a reservation for 5:30 and had already let the hostess know we were waiting 15 minutes prior. They had just been cleaning up the last of the previous turnover and sat us at the table about 10 minutes later, along with everyone else who had reservations in that time slot.

Half an hour in, no one had even come by with water or menus - most other tables already had their glasses filled. When one of the servers finally come around to fill our glasses, I had asked for menus and hot water for my parents. She nodded, turned around and promptly began filling glasses at a bunch of other tables, completely ignoring us in the corner. It took another three reminders for her to grab menus for us, but had forgotten the hot water. Asked for it again with lemon and she brought the water without the lemon - every time she came back to bring what was requested, there was no apology whatsoever.
When we finally got around to ordering, the food once again took half an hour to arrive, and no one came around to refill our water (even though we noticed them making rounds at other tables). Someone else had asked us if we wanted to order beverages and I asked to see the wine list, which was not brought to us until halfway through the meal.
The food was mediocre at best. The short rib was dry, the sticky toffee pudding was decent but we were served half melted ice cream. By 7pm they were just coming around to clear up the mains, and at this point we were tired of waiting for prolonged periods every time we wanted some kind of service.

Still ended up tipping one of the other servers that brought us our food, and she was kind enough to apologize when she did admit to forgetting something else we asked for. Their attire was not uniform despite the standard clearly being "black bistro", quite a few servers took liberties with their looks, and for a venue with such a reputation, they came off as extremely unprofessional.

All in all, I would not recommend this place to any of my wedding or event clients looking to book. I thought this would be a nice change of scenery for Mother's day since we haven't been to the area in 20+ years. Other than our stroll in the gardens prior to dinner, this has been a disappointing night.

My company was there for the Zoholics, a gathering/presentation of the Zoho suite, a bunch of applications to help people build, manage and do anything they could think of on their businesses. The presentation was kind of underwhelming but the place and the organization were pretty good. The view is awesome and I can imagine a marriage party happening here easily. Its just a bit out of hand if you don't drive but otherwise it is easy to get there. The place was blank, totally empty with the exception of a few chairs and desks, I am not sure if they do any kind of decoration or if you have to bring it but it is totally needed!

Our wedding was on April 28th 2018. The venue was super nice, it's modern and romantic. It's an added bonus with the park behind the venue! We planned our wedding mainly with Francesca and she was super quick in responding! She answered every single question within a day or two and accommodated a lot of our requests for our ceremony and the reception. During the day, the manager, captain and all the staffs there were super friendly and were all very attentive to our needs. The gazebo outdoors for the ceremony was lovely as you get to be outdoors but it's covered in case of rain. Although it does get a bit cold when it's very windy. The food was amazing! We got lots of compliments for the food, they were good portions and the steaks came out to be perfect! Thank you so much for making the day so perfect for us!

My husband and I would like to thank The Guild Inn for the most incredible and magical wedding we could ever have dreamed of! Francesca was simply amazing and made our international planning effortless and seamless. Even in the freak April ice storm, the grounds were gorgeous and offered a stunning backdrop for our winter wedding wonderland. Thanks so much to The Guild Inn team! Xx
