There are various food places in town, limited halal options though. There are plenty of shops, with the town centre being pretty aswell. However, there is a lack of things to do in Guildford, usually have to travel out to Woking or London. Guildford as an area is also quite expensive. Despite this, Guildford is beautiful and a very calm place to live so would recommend for people who like a quiet time but don't mind travelling a bit for a fun time.
