The George Brasserie
This is a pleasant gastro pub and hotel. We have been going a while and the food improves each time. The service is friendly and good. It lacks a bit of atmosphere
Almost empty on a Friday evening which may be due to the price. Food was good but not outstanding.
A nice venue but no ambience or atmosphere.
Perfect Sunday morning breakfast, wonderfully cooked food, very good service in a relaxed atmosphere. The granola, natural yogurt with pear and apple compote combination was superb. We'd like lessons from the chef in the art of making the perfect poached egg.
This place is really lovely the food is excellent and service is great.
As a birthday treat, we were very pleased as we had never been to The George before. The special 'birthday' plate after the meal gave great pleasure. Thank you for making this day special.
The George is a lovely venue and the food good (we ate there on a themed dining evening so the price was set). However, on this occasion we found the (drinks) service to be quite slow. We also wish the venue had a little more ambience....it seems to be lacking in atmosphere.....but the surroundings are pleasant and the staff friendly.
Sorry to see set menu has been abandoned for a lunchtime. A la carte menu rather heavy and expensive for a lunch. Was not offered ‘bar menu’ until queried change of menus.
Shame about all changes to menus have used as meeting place with friends for lunch for many years, now not quite what we are looking for.
Celebrated our wedding anniversary with lunch at the George and had a good time. Food was fine with a good choice and the service excellent.
We will always recommend our friends and relatives to go to the George at Buckden in fact we are having a family lunch this Sunday 19th May there for my husbands 80th birthday. Unfortunately I forgot to ask if they could do a cake but hey ho I am absolutely sure the meal will be fantastic.
Very friendly staff my American friends loved the food and the design of the Hotel.
Fabulous service, food and environment. Just lovely.
Great food and service. Presentation and quality superb,
Fully recommend a visit.
Very nice lunch especially the panna cotta with rhubarb which was one of the best puds I have had in a long time.
Although okay, the food was not exceptional or memorable. We have eaten here before a few years ago and still talk about the food we had at the time as it was amazing.
The service was great but probably wont go back because of the prices / plain food.
This is a lovely place to have a business lunch. Food is delicious and staff were friendly.
A very warm welcome and we were given a choice of tables. The special menu do fish and fizz was very good and complimentary bread and butter was included. We added in a pudding which was delicious. Excellent and friendly service.
Excellent All round great food wine.
Loved my Meatball Starter and my Wife's Goats cheese starter was spot on. We both had the Salmon for main and probably too much Spinach for our liking but everything was brilliantly cooked. The Poached pair to finish with was exceptional with a hint if cinnamon and cardamom in the poaching I think. First Class and will go back again
Lovely as always but I’m guessing you have some new chairs - unfortunately a little too low? Maybe rethink? X
Perfect venue for a family occasion. Can't fault it.
Very enjoyable lunch, very busy but staff served us quickly and efficiently. The food was very good too. We would definitely return.
An excellent evening out celebrating my Wife's birthday.
Lovely food, we always find the George a very friendly and calm place.
Wonderful setting with a menu to satisfy every pallete. Not too noisy and the staff were attentive and checked on everything throughout. Overall, a very good experience thank you.
Our meal was FAB-U-LOUS!!! A party of four all very impressed with our food compliments to the chef! Waiting staff were also very friendly and helpful we shall be back!
Food well presented and delicious
We had a great lunch from the prix fixe menu and excellent service. Looking forward to tryin dinner
Hadn’t been to the George in a long while but it didn’t disappoint.
Food was delicious, staff were superb, going again next month. Would highly recommend
Very good Sunday lunch with friends (fixed price menu). Service was prompt and friendly and not too noisy.
We enjoyed a very nice two course meal and a bottle of wine using their Feb Fridays dinner offer which was excellent value for money. The food was very good especially the lamb which was very tender and flavoursome. The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. As there was only one other table occupied in the conservatory it did lack atmosphere compared to the main restaurant.
Phone to book aa table on Saturday 16th at 9am and told that nothing available for Sunday around 1:30-2pm. Said they could do a table for 2 bit nothing else. Went onto the George website, clicked on opentable and saw the multiple tables available for 4 people . Booked a table for 1:30 and had completed this by 9:08, yet 8 minutes earlier their were no spaces according to the person on the phone.
Had lunch on the Sunday and all ok but nobody senior to talk to. I called on the Monday and got lame excuses but no apology. They said that people must have cancelled between 9:00 and 9:08. if that was the case they must have had multiple cancellations all within 8 minutes.
totally unsatisfactory response
When you called there were no table's of 4 available. An online cancellation had taken place shortly after your call, our system show us this. This enabled you to book a table of 4 online. You spoke to a supervisor (senior staff) on the day when you handed in your voucher. You spoke with Amanda on the telephone yesterday and we have listened back to the call - she apologised twice! You were able to book a table and said to Amanda you enjoyed your lunch. No idea on the point of this review!
Friendly and helpful service, timings were spot on, loved my roast dinner.
The service and the front of house staff were friendly and were helpful.
The food was good and the surprise at the end for my wife's birthday was brilliant and unexpected.
We enjoyed the Friday night special so much we booked another table for next Friday!!
Karen & Mum
Friends and I were visiting the clothes shop attached to the George Hotel, having shopped we had lunch. This is not the first time that we have made this outing together. Sadly the staff are very slow, forgetful and apparently not terribly interested in their customers - quite unlike the clothes shop where the staff are simply superb!
The menu choices were strange far too many deep fried goods for lunchtime. Even the chicken breast main course I had was deep fried. The fish cakes were very heavy and I think it explained all when the friends I was with, who all chose the fishcakes, left more than 50% of them. We mentioned our disappointment to the waitress who did nothing to appease the situation. We'll certainly be returning to the shop to buy clothes but will be looking elsewhere for our lunch!
Food excellent, flavour and presentation, but portion size of our meals - venison medallions - was rediculously small for the price!
Great food and service. Would recommend to others and will definitely eat there again.
Wonderful service - really comfortable here but it’s still special. Great food and wine.
Always a very good experience friendly staff, excellent service & great food
Keep up the good work
The starter and dessert were excellent. The salmon main course would also have been but unfortunately it lacked seasoning.
We often stop
Here for lunch to break a family journey on the A1, the food is good, the ambiance good, the staff good
