Wonderful, accommodating service. Great food, lovely location. Fantastic wine selection, a few more draught lager/beer options would have been nice (only Yachtsman available when we visited). Thanks all.

A lovely day enjoyed by all of us as a family.
Food was delicious especially the George Burgers and the Mussells, fabulous!
The ambiance was lovely overlooking the Solent and Wightlink ferry as it docked, the boats all coming in and out of Yarmouth harbour, something interesting to look at all day and fishing on the beach.

A lovely memorable experience for us all.

Lovely courtyard and the food was tasty, BUT...
- getting served was really hard work and took 35 mins to even order a drink.
- they completely forgot our starters and ended up bringing them after the mains.
- the price on the menu we were given for our dish was nearly double the price of the exact same dish on the menu on their website. We didn't even look at the pricing on the printed menu as had looked online and everything seemed reasonable so didn't think to cross check. I realised what was on the bill on the way home and called as assumed a mistake had been made but was told the pricing was correct and the online menu was just a sample. Very unhappy as it was extremely expensive for what we got (£36 for a small piece of monkfish, with sauce but nothing else, no veg, rice or anything. Online menu price was £22!). Went home feeling mighty ripped off which totally spoilt the evening sadly.

We managed to be seated within the bar area and so benefited from being slightly protected from the chilly wind.

Food was delicious and overall good value.
It was a busy afternoon and there was a lively vibe.
Felt overall the service was good from our very pleasant main waitress.
Will definitely return- hopefully on a warmer day!

The service was slow and the veg was cold allowances have to be made due to outside service only and restrictions but if you pay top price you expect top service.
The main problem was a loud group of 5 on the next table who had too much alcohol. Their language was unacceptable.

We are eating outside of course and the George will always catch the wind, although they really have tried to counter this I think a slight rethink on the food being served in such conditions is needed.

The food was perfect, as usual, but stone cold within less than a minute due to the air temperature, not their fault but to be paying George prices to eat cold food doesn't quite fit. I am not suggesting I have the answers but it does mean we wouldn't eat there again outside.

Also on the service side, seeing the staff people literally shaking in the wind due to uniform isn't nice to see.

Finally It was my birthday and I was greeted with Happy Birthday when we arrived. I then watched other people receive a happy birthday acknowledgment but none for me.

Thank you and we will return but not in the current weather pattern whilst we must eat outside

So at £100 a head I think overall a rethink in the current conditions is needed.

It was freezing cold and raining so not easy for outdoor dinning. Service was excellent and food was great. Perhaps some more thought given to better wind and rain shelter.

Very good service and food was excellent. We ate here, outside on a chilly day, and it was quiet. We have eaten here on a sunny day and the atmosphere is very different when it is warm to sit outside. Highly recommended.

The view from the garden was fantastic but of course weather dependent. The main course we had was amazing. The oyster was really fresh.

I had booked The George as a special surprise lunch for my husband's birthday, and was so excited to finally visit. I was so disappointed and upset that despite mentioning that it was to celebrate his birthday at the time of booking, there was no gesture or anything done to make it feel special. Our table was in the middle of the outdoor area, so getting the attention of staff was near impossible. We had to ask three times for our bill, when other tables who asked much later got it instantly, and it took far too long to get it. Really disappointing.

It was our first meal out in months after the lockdown, and a 60th birthday, so a big occasion. The food was excellent, cooked perfectly and with interesting flavours. I asked for a bottle of prosecco when we arrived. They didn't have any but did have a cremant from the Loire. Not sure what it was, but it was very drinkable. It was a lovely, sunny day, with no breeze off the sea, so we were able to enjoy the garden and sea views in warmth and comfort. Service was Island standard.

Lovely setting just on the front but sheltered from the breeze in their conservatory. All aspects of the evening were COVID secure. Food was excellent (happy to oblige with my slightly unusual request!) and good drinks menu too.
Altogether a perfect evening - only wish we could return again soon!

Good food with service a little slow to start, but once orders placed arrived promptly. Aix staff were knowledgeable and cheerful. My wife found her meal enjoyable apart from the table next door having a dog that needed to be more with them than us!
