After all the hype about George's we thought we would try the famous fish and chips. We had to wait a while for a table , good choice of menu and very clean surroundings. Disappointed as the chips were hard as though they had been cooked before and the three of us had the bottom of the chip basket I... More

Really Good Chippy! Chips are nice and crispy on the outside/soft in the middle. Fish is good quality. Prices are about right for usual Fish & Chip Shops.

We found this place by accident when we were very hungry and running late because of a serious hold-up on the M1. We had resolved to eat wherever we could because it was so late, but the Thorn Tree exceeded our hopes; it was excellent. The fish and chips were perfect: crisp and dry, not greasy, and in portions big... More

We had another great lunch here yesterday. Everyone had the fresh cod including my 93 year old father,whose appetite is not what it used to be,but he finished it all. The chips were among the best I have tasted.

My wife and I have frequented this establishment many times, the service is quick and efficient. We tend to have the fish and chips but have also tried the other dishes on offer, all have been of good quality, especially the stake.

Decided to make a return visit to Georges after a disappointing 1st visit. Much improved. Food was absolutely gorgeous, piping hot. Very tasty. Large fish & chips, mushy peas with bread and butter. Lovely filter coffee. Much improved- thank you. I will be back!

It's hard to go wrong with fish and chips, a staple of the British Menu, the UK's answer to America's hamburger and french fries. We know how to show it to those old colonies. Now not to say that fast food or take away food isn't great but if it's fish and chip night in your house you cannot go... More
