Have eaten here many times and loved it however on this occasion the food was mediocre, the restaurant was very busy and service much slower than usual , it was also far too hot in the restaurant, hopefully this was just a one off blip

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

Excellent Sunday Lunch! ... Good selection on the menu, although I would have liked the option of a Cheese Board as I am not really a dessert person. Great value for money... and the staff were very helpful and polite. I am a very satisfied customer and will definitely be returning very soon. 😊

Met a friend here for Breakfast/Brunch. Had a full English breakfast which was generous, great value and very tasty. Great choice of menu for this time of day. Nice atmosphere and polite helpful staff so will definitely return for Breakfast again. Have already booked for Sunday Lunch as the menu looks interesting and look forward to trying it out.

Comfortable lovely ambience great food good service. Cannot answer all the above questions as there was no vegan/vegetarian in our party. There was a children's menu .
My first visit I was asked to book the best Restaurant around the area and knowing that my foodie son had eaten at The George and enjoyed the meal and my brother a great foodie was one of our party that was the reason for my choice and I was very glad I was right.

For my main course I chose swordfish from the 'specials' menu, this was delicious but the skinny chips served in wire basket were very disappointing. Starter to share of baked camembert and dessert sticky toffee pudding were both really delicious. Service was professional but friendly.

This was by far the best meal out we’ve had in a while and we’ve eaten at a lot of the “go to” places locally. Most of us opted for the steak, which was delicious. The bubble and squeak for starters, also amazing. Not one bad word to say about our experience and will definitely be going back. Highly recommend.

Four of us had dinner on a Wednesday evening. We had a drink in the bar beforehand, sitting in comfy chairs and a settee. The restaurant was a little empty but that didn't detract from our experience.

We ordered olives and garlic bread to nibble while our main courses were prepared, but these took so long to arrive I had to go and chase them. Olives and garlic bread take minutes to prepare and should have arrived more or less immediately.

The main courses were excellent and well worth the money. I've seen far worse wine lists, and we shared a bottle of nice Argentinian malbec.

The staff were at all times smart, courteous and friendly

This was going to be a nice Valentines evening Meal....the meal was ok we wasn’t blown away by it but it was tasty. The meal went ok until our bill came and was given the wrong bill three times !!!!
Eventually we managed to pay our bill and leave, I can’t really fault the waiting staff as they all seemed very friendly, would we go back again probably not!!!

We ordered from the new set menu , with both having Chicken liver Pate , unfortunately it tasted so bland it could have been anything. I did pass this on to our waitress , who informed me it was home made by the chef . Not a great start. For our mains I ordered Fish and Chips , and Sirloin Steak. My Fish was very generic looking and just tepid . The chips were stale and lukewarm . My partners Steak was fine , but again the chips were soft and not crispy. We have used The George quite a few times over the past couple of years but this was not a good experience , and I will avoid for a while in the hope that the Chef improves.
