The starters and grill monkfish were excellent. Everything is great. It was a shame the weather wasn’t great so the garden wasn’t open. It would be even better if we could sit outside.

The staff were really good - the menu choice for lunchtime was not what we wanted so we had to order the chicken
Sone if the chicken did nit seem cooked thoroughly - it was a friend’s special birthday so we didn’t want to make a fuss,
Music under the sheltered bit was awful - too loud

Exceptional food and wine. Lemon Sole and Monkfish cooked to perfection and beautifully presented and accompanied by a delightful 2018 Sancerre. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Thoroughly recommended.

Very good experience as always a a nice spot when the sun is shining. service a bit slow as usual. We all had the sea bass carpaccio which was very good followed by a half lobster. This was disappointing as it looked more like a large langoustine. So not great value for money.

We booked a meal as a special event on holiday Tuesday 15th June. The menu attached to the confirmation mail sent on Sunday 13th June showed the full menu. The menu attached to the prompt mail on Monday 14th June showed the full menu. When we arrived on the 15th June we were told that Mondays and Tuesday's menu was restricted. Restricted! It was a list of pizzas and two salads! I asked if it was a joke and was told that Monday and Tuesdays are always pizza nights. After 5 minutes we left. There were no staff to be seen so I couldn't make a complaint. Today, the 16th, I get a marketing mail hoping I had a nice time, and would I like to take this feedback. I didn't. They then sent it again... well, this is the feedback: appalling!

A complete disaster! We were so looking forward to our celebration lunch. Cost £75 on the ferry to be told when we got there that they were only serving pizza! 2 gluten intolerant friends meant we went elsewhere. Absolutely ridiculous.

Beautiful food, setting and outlook. Disappointing to witness the waiter staff have a disagreement between each other whilst standing next to our table, could of been more professional.
Bathrooms could also of been presented better.
Couple of niggles but would definitely visit again and would like to grab a table in the conservatory.

A very disappointing experience. The service was abysmal: we had to ask for everything, the table was never ‘served’ and if we managed to flag someone down they didn’t appear to have a clue.
This was supposed to be a treat for my mother and my children but we all left totally deflated. How can such a wonderful location - at tip top prices - manage to be so awful?
The food itself was hit and miss which again wasn’t to be expected when paying the prices charged. It was noted that a couple of tables around us appeared to be having similar problems with food going back and general disquiet.
I suggest the hefty 12.5% Service Charge be taken off until someone gets hold of the place and manages it properly. Perhaps a new chef too?

Service could have been better, menu did not seem very balanced. food was very enjoyable. Was rather cool, despite being indoors, when sun went in. Coffee was terrible. Overall an enjoyable experience but did not match The George reputation.

From Hero to Zero! We visited as a group of 9 on Saturday evening and everything was outstanding, but returning as a table of 3 on Wednesday the whole experience was average at best. The table in the bushes was covered with ants, the service was slow, the orders were wrong and despite asking different people time over the order still wasn’t corrected. In the end we decided to avoid ordering dessert and leave. Really disappointing how they can go from getting it so right, to so wrong in a matter of days.

Lovely setting we choose to sit inside. The food was delicious, a little on the pricy side but worth it. The service was disappointingly slow. I appreciate it was half term but it was a shame a slightly ruined the experience.

Service was unfortunately very poor. Half an our after our order they said they were out of hamburgers which was ordered by my husband. Then they came back again the kids meals couldnt be served either. 45 minuted after our first order we made a new choice. Then they said it would be there in 5min and it took another 30min.

They did apologise. Got a few soft drinks refunded and bread and no service charge but that was it.

Lovely place but they need to step up their service.

Lovely old building very well decorated. Food was first class but a touch on the expensive side. The services as not good we waited over an hour after ordering. We were then asked by 3 different people if we would like to order dessert. It seemed that none of the staff had a specific job

The food was very nice, if a little pricey. The service was very friendly but incredibly slow - we gave up on having pudding after waiting 40 mins for someone to take our order.
