Built in 1452; so stacks of history. Unfortunately playing on the wacky/weird rather than anything accurate, but my elderly mother enjoyed the atmosphere and there was a lovely fire. Lunch was dire - salmon and prawn hot baguette with chips and salad - the smoked salmon had obviously been left unwrapped in the packet, such that there was a hard... More

This is an amazing old hotel hundreds of years old. The staff were very friendly if a little forgetful (but, hey, this is Glastonbury!) and the food was jolly good. It''s more of an experience that a gourmet delight, but well worth it.

Nothing wrong here the place was pleasant and the food decent though not noteworthy. I guess I would describe it as a relatively price effective place to eat but not one I would go out of my way to eat at. Decent beer.

The George & Pilgrim is an exceptionally old and historic building. Just sitting in the bar area you can feel the history!! I thoroughly enjoyed my meal tasty & plentiful (liver, bacon & onions). My husbands chilli was thin and relatively tasteless, a bit of a dissapointment. Service was good and warm.

this is the oldest pub in town and taste of the food is more then good, not the best, but there is something special in it and this is why I always come back when I stop in Glastonbury.

They only do roast dinners on a Sunday and, oh boy, are they good! We had roast beef which was slow roasted and melted in the mouth. Served with the usual roast potatoes, boiled veg and Yorkshire pudding, and accompanied by a little gravy. Very good indeed. The building is also very old and interesting too.

i don't often write negative reviews so this is unusual for me. I know they were busy, it was carnival day, but c'mon guys that happens every year. when you advertise outside two different menus and also state there is a limited evening menu available - at least work out what this will be. we were with friends who have...

There is the restaurant open to everyone, and the breakfast room for guest of the inn. The restaurant is really more of what Americans would think of as an English pub. Staff there are very friendly and helpful. Even if you aren't hungry, stop by for a drink to appreciate the history of this centuries old inn. If you decide... More

All the dishes were very tasty but I was served horseraddish without warning...I guess Hell itself is much colder than that...but apart from this horrible experience, all the other dishes were perfect and the service was excellent. My greetings to waiter...I met him the other day at Subway and he wanted to put horseraddish into my sandwich too...hahaha very funny... More
