Our friendly team offer a warm and welcoming environment and on visiting you are likely to find a steady stream of local clientele and a dog or two stretched out in front of the open fire. We look forward to welcoming you soon. The George Team

    Second time we have visited, food excellent on both occasions, and experiece overall very good. We did not receive itemised bills, but total sum requested on both occasions seemed quite correct. A telephone and online attempt to book on Monday 1st August failed with phone message 'mailbox full', so we were dissappointed on that occasion.

    Really lovely homemade Nut Roast. So much better than the packet block of stuffing you get in most pubs. Friendly staff. Lovely pub, definitely recommend it.

Were really friendly and helpful. Even buying our drinks for us for my birthday. Thank you to you all. Great meal We

    Enjoyed the good food from a limited menu, eating in the garden in the evening. Service was OK once I realised you ordered at the bar (like pre-pandemic!). Particularly good fat and juicy whitebait, and the steak and ale pie with mash was a joy! Trains passing quite close was anoying while in the garden, and I should have opped for the larger chairs for more comfort! (There are lots of chairs and benches to sit at). Good time had by all and will come there again soon!

    Tried The George for the first time in many years. Very pleasantly surprised. Simple menu (always a god sign), and the food was genuinely home made. We hjad an excellent fish Pie and the Georgeburger was Massive and clearly home made - with Bacon, cheese and all the trimmings. All 4 meals were excellent. Well done George!

    When booking on line, I wanted to sit in the conservatory, but was informed that seating there was not available. On arrival, my guest and I were the ONLY people dining in the conservatory! The menu choices were disappointing and unimaginative The scampi was fine but the calamari was a very small portion and quite soggy. It needed to be much crisper. The staff were very pleasant but so slow serving at the bar which, at the time, was not busy . We did like the ambience, and would come again.

    Good find , food nice. The additional 10% charge is wrong as prices not that cheap! To warrant it. service average Good roast dinner though. Additional charges put people off returning & a pub in middle of no where needs the customers! It’s Hampshire not USA.

    Strange service. Not given any menus, I had to go and locate some myself. No details of what the Sunday roast contains on the menu or on display on the pub. I asked the staff what the roast consisted of and they struggled to tell me anything other than the meat and potatoes, no knowledge of veg served. Food was a decent sized portion but average and not worth the £16 per person that we paid. Bill had an item listed on it that we never received because the pub had run out so had to ask for that to be corrected.

    Excellent warm country pub. Good parking area. Very friendly staff, prompt service and very large Sunday roast enjoyed. Excellent vegetables. Dog friendly- suggest if book via open table put in request box for dog friendly table. A small group who had booked arrived as we were leaving but who had an unexpected dog. They were fortunately able to be accommodated in the bar area as dogs not allowed in restaurant part.
