Lovely place but disappointing food.
Over priced for the quality and appearance of the food provided.
Good atmosphere and welcoming though!

The food was lovely but for a Saturday lunchtime the menu was very limited. We did ask if there was another menu we could order from but that was the only one. The meals were a good size and good value plus the waitress was lovely.

Just lack of options on the menu is my only issue

Food was okay. We had booked a table in the week to go for Sunday roast. Unfortunately when we arrived we were informed they had ran out of roasts which was a shame as there’s not much menu choice on a Sunday afternoon if you’re not choosing the roast so thy was a huge let down. Wouldn’t have minded so much if we hadn’t pre-booked earlier in the week.

Perfectly pleasant Sunday lunch at The George and would certainly consider dining there again. Staff were pleasant and efficient. My one slight quibble was that the crumble had too much fruit, not enough crumble and was hot beyond belief to the point I believe the flavour was impaired. It was eatable - eventually - but perhaps it is something that needs considering.

Lovely evening in a nice atmosphere. Food was generally good, although service timing could have been a little better (graze plates should have arrived before starter instead at same time!). Wines were good and pleasant service. Will return!

The service was brilliant as always, the main course was very poor the lamb was tough and needed a steak knife to hack through it, would have made excellent shoe leather. I was really surprised because the food is normally to a very high standard, maybe just a bad night at the office.

Attractive restaurant and a perfectly nice lunch, but not a place I would rush back to if I’m honest. Absolutely nothing wrong with it, just missed the element that would make me choose to go back.

The waiting staff were poorly trained. Received the wrong menu and after 10 minutes they took that away. Had to wait another 10 minutes and called for the manageress who gave us the correct menu and the service she provided was fine. The food was average / below average. More training required all round to improve the experience to the level that would be expected from such an establishment.

We enjoyed a cocktail at the bar before dinner. Service was very good although it was a Wednesday evening and May differ at the weekend. We enjoyed sharing Camembert
Followed by lamb wellington and steak they were all good as was the banoffi and panecotta.
We will definitely return
