Visited with my wife and a friend The pub was busy with lots of people eating. The Stilton chicken I had was a little over cooked but the flavour and sauce was good. My wife enjoyed her vegetarian dish and the veggie choices were good, better than the 1 or 2 we usually see. The George is worth a visit

We came here on a Friday night and were found a table without booking! A pleasant welcome but lacked any sort of real effort The food was nice and a great portion but lacked veg, greens or salad. The heavy mental music too loud in the back ground ruined the ambiance of the pub along with the rude lady being...

Lovely pub with a varied good menu. 7 of us ladies had various items on the menu and all of us enjoyed the food. Very generous portions and reasonable prices too! Staff friendly and this was my second trip in as many days! That says it all doesn't it!

Dear SandraJane Thank you for leaving us such a lovely review, we are absolutely delighted you enjoyed your visit. We think perhaps judging by the review though that you might have given us one star (which means terrible) for your visit in error? We look forward to welcoming you again to the George, Kind Regards, Diane and Stewart

We stayed at the George inn whilst attending a friends wedding at a local venue.The rooms were very comfortable and we had a warm welcome from the owner, who offered us a lift to the wedding venue when we couldn't get a taxi. Breakfast was delicious and just what we needed after a heavy night. Would recommend, great value for...

Room was really nice, clean and with all the things you need, soap, towels,mending kit,shampoo, shower gel. The bar did good real...

We have had nothing but good praises for the lovely wedding reception held for our daughter at the George. The food was throughly enjoyed by all and was served hot even though there were 44 of us. Plenty to eat and the beef was so tender and cooked to perfection. Diane and Stewart were very accommodating and helped us with...

We stayed at The George at Donyatt for one night with some friends whilst we attended a wedding nearby. We called at the last minute to request an early check in which they managed to do for us with no fuss and from the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. Rooms are nice and clean and there is...

Great find. Quality food. Fresh and cooked to a very high standard. Its a shame I cant get this standard in Southampton. All of the family agreed it was the best meal they had eaten in a pub for a long while. Maybe it is because the pubs in Somerset are not serving food all day.
