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.

My wife, and I together with another couple from the Western Isles had very pleasant meal. The service was excellent, and the cloakrooms were bright and clean. The food was good. It would have been helpful for one of us ift gluten free meals were signified on the menu. We would have preferred to have had our coffee in a more relaxing atmosphere on chairs in the lounge, but were put off by a loud paty who took up most of the bar area when we first arrived. Since both couples had travelled from a distance, lack of car parking was a disadvantage. Apart from these remarks, thank you for a very good experience.

Just moved in to the area and had some friends visiting, so booked the George in Baldock. Good choice of starters and mains, with beef Wellington the choice of three of us and sea bass, all well presented and delicious.
The staff were excellent and meals were served quickly and hot, we had a couple of bottles of the house merlot and were pleased with our choices.
Bar area very pleasent for both pre and post dinner drinks.
Will be making a return visit very soon.

Fantastic anniversary meal at The George. Their steak night is unrivalled for taste! Excellent wine menu, good cocktails. We have been to The George many times and always excellent food. We would love to see a couple more real ales on the pumps, as usually only one regular. Staff were friendly and attentive and as usual, we had a fantastic evening.
