Definitely THE place to go and eat. Even though we arrived just before the kitchen was due to close at 8pm we were not hurried. Our meal was beautifully presented and very tasty. The stuffed chicken breast was so tender it melted in the mouth....Veg were vibrant and fresh and cooked perfectly. Lovely creamy, tarragon sauce to pour over the mash.. A good price for a quality meal. Great service.More
I and my wife went for an evening meal in the restaurant, the staff was very pleasant and friendly, unfortunately, that where the good things stopped, the burgers we had were dry, like they had been pre-cooked then reheated. the burgers in the Garden bar...looked amazing we should have eaten thereMore
What an absolute disappointment.
We visited the George last year and had a super meal with lovely service and loved the vibe of the place and did think of coming to stay another time. After all the rooms look lovely and it had amazing reviews....On our return trip to Loch Fyne this year, we decided to visit the G Bar, the lovely garden bar behind the restaurant for some food and to watch the finals of the Euros.
Our thought was that although it was an England Italy match, the fact they had tv's up and offered an evening of watching the match with food served at the table that it would be a pleasant evening in a beautiful part of the world.
We fully expected a bit of light hearted banter, as an English man and Scottish women, we were fully prepared to be teased a bit or even that Italy might get more cheers than England. Thats cool the best team wins and all.
We visited early in day and were told we couldn't book it was first come first serve
When we arrived several tables were reserved. So not sure what that was about.
The atmosphere at the bar quickly descended into a sense of disdain towards the England supports that where there, (Spending our money in your place of business.) By the staff. Mainly the main guy who seemed to in charge.
He placed a large Italy flag in front of bar just before the match, which raised a few eyebrows, his comments where to the client who in jest made a comment. "My bar none of your business." Some further banter lead to his comment of, "As i said my bar you have no say on what i do."
Fair enough i guess its his bar, but his aggressive attitude and strutting back and forth with a clear attitude of disdain for the many English who were present, and to be fair Scots, who some of where just happy to see the UK in a final, made many feel uncomfortable.
He then turned the music up so loud it was not possible to hear the tv at all. I asked if would be ok to turn down so we could hear commentary, when the waitress asked the bar staff laughed and it stayed the same.
A bloke sat on wall in front of our table blocking view, no social distancing he was right next to another table, and he asked staff if he could sit there, they saw he was blocking view and they again said "sure."
The atmosphere felt somewhat hostile which is a shame, as i really love Inveraray and it has tainted the place a bit.
After some eyebrow raising between guests a few left including us. We felt very unwelcome and looked down on.
The food sadly was pretty rubbish too. I wasn't expecting much, after all it was simple garden food, chips and pizza, burgers, but it was bit like cheap frozen pizza, and the cocktails sadly were pretty poor. My husbands burger was ok.
This review is not sour grapes, as i say we LOVED the George last year and had recommended to friends who came this way last year also.
We wont be doing that again.
in this day and age, service matters, kindness matters, standards matter. To treat customers with disdain and bring nationalism into a place of business, a place where tourists come is truly disappointing.
Badly done The G Bar. You let yourself down. I hope you are never in a position where someone makes you feel so uncomfortable you have to leave....More
We popped in for lunch, and we were not disappointed. Excellent food, excellent service. Lovely atmosphere in an old building. Our young waitress was very welcoming and quickly took our order. I would certainly recommend The George Hotel. We will be back .EXCELLENT. Thank you.
Mothers birthday party and again we chose The George for atmosphere, food and service.
Everyone enjoyed their food and again had superb service.
I opted for the Special which was Lamb roast with all the trimmings. The lamb was the most tender I can remember...ever having and perfectly cooked. The veggies were sufficient but left me wanting more. The roast potatoes would have benefited from pre-boiling prior to roast and both potatoes and parsnips could have used a little more fat to crisp them up if we are being pinickity. No complaints just an observation for my particular tastes.
Lovely local ales were served from Loch Fine Brewery and were very moreish.
Popped my head around to the garden and on this summer evening looked perfect and will definitely be getting a visit next time we are over to inverary.More
We stopped in for lunch while we were taking a tour of the Highlands and so glad we did! There is such a lovely cosy feel to the pub/restaurant area and the food and drink was very reasonably priced and of a high standard -...really good fish & chips! Service was friendly and efficient too despite the place being quite busy.More
Dined in here during a short stay. Food was absolutely delicious! Well worth the visit. Service excellent, wine excellent, local ale also excellent. Although we visited mid week it was still busy enough in the bar.
