We visited here for a quick supper, there was no welcome and it took a while to find somewhere to sit despite it being quite empty. To be fair, our waitress was on her second shift, and she did very well, all things considered. The manager, or owner was quite brusque with her in front of us. Our food came...

Was a drizzly day and four of us were looking for lunch. The George was first pub we saw so we went in. Good menu choices, lasagna. Fish n chips and fish pie all good. The steak was not cooked as requested but my friend ate it. A good lunch stop. Nice seating areas helpful staff.

Thanks for the interesting review. The car park was not blocked by our van, which is a standard size and not 'huge', it was parked in our parking space, you were politely asked if you could move your car in the morning as it was blocking us in and I needed to get my daughter to nursery. We have just...

We arrived from London, really gorgeous pub recently refurbished. Beautifully done, it smelt of the real wood fires. It had a lovely atmosphere and friendly helpful staff. We ordered the food, whilst it took almost an hour to arrive it was nicely presented and delicious! The rooms, well, a bit of a different story....we booked two single rooms at a...

This was our 2nd visit to the George. We stayed with a dog in the same room as previously and found it redecorated and improved. The pub itself has been updated and feels very welcoming but still full of character. A good night's sleep, excellent evening meal and very satisfying breakfast. Will return next time we are in the area.

From the outside this looks like a decent but ordinary pub but inside it's a pearl. A great deal of care has been lavished on the ground floor public spaces - snug in some places - open in others and everywhere there are quirky and tasteful decorative elements. But the food... oh my gosh the food. Whilst my colleagues were...

The George Hotel has a very welcoming feel, with a nice bar and restaurant area. It seems that there are rooms upstairs in the main building. There are also rooms in a building along the back of the hotel, with entrances accessed directly from the outside parking lot. This is where our room was. It was decent for the 3...

Called into the George on a Sunday Morning to see if we could get something to eat. The general appearance on entry was pleasing, we were nicely greeted and offered several options as to where to sit as the establishment has various rooms we opted to sit in the bar. We were offered the Sunday Lunch Menu which had several...

I stayed on a busy Saturday night. My room was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and well-equipped. It didn't bother me that the curtains and the blind were rather smaller than the window but it's the kind of thing that might bother others. The bar and restaurant were very busy and noisy but the atmosphere was convivial. The restaurant was fully...
