          We had the taster menu and our only negative comment would be that the portions are too large! We ended up too full to enjoy the last couple of courses. Excellent, attentive & friendly staff. Great wines and some lively recommendations from Tristan. We will return.

          Myself, family and friends came to eat here because it was a memorial lunch for my young daughter that died a year ago, it would of been her 9th birthday. The staff were very professional, polite and courteous. The food was sublime and everyone enjoyed their three courses in the orangery. I will personally be back soon to try out some of the rest of the menu because the food was excellent and decor complements it all. Fabulous service!

          The food quantity was a little too large so we could not manage a dessert. Happy to have paid the same amount for three courses spread over a little more time. The chef is obviously talented so would be great to experience a lovely dessert. On the value front it reflects higher prices for two course and wine. Thanks you overall very good. Greg

          Christmas eve late lunch so the restaurant was quiet but welcoming. The new refurbishment is very good with an elegant relaxed vibe. Service was attentive without being intrusive and the waitress happily swapped a meal choice even though last orders had been taken. The special of pheasant was very tasty, as was the feathered beef. The vegan option of bean burger was very disappointing - dry, tasteless without any garnishes or sauce. Too bad as otherwise it was a very nice meal.

          Our first time here; loved the ambience, the decor, the service, the staff… reminded me of the wintergarden in Mr Selfridge/the original London Ivy. Food just stunning, very inventive vegetarian choices, beautifully presented. A find of a place, we will be back frequently!

          The decor is great, however I felt the prices were too ambitious. I work in London so regularly go out there with friends and clients, so I can see what The George is aspiring to. However the audience is not London so I feel they are aiming too high. That might explain why it's always so empty when I've been and therefore it lacks the ambience and atmosphere you might expect from such an establishment.

          Having visited for the first time with friends we found The George Hotel very welcoming. The service, ambience and especially the food perfect for our lunchtime get-together. There is just one thing we would like to see is maybe a specific ‘lunchtime’ menu for those of us that do not want to eat a full ‘evening’ meal early in the day.

          The George has been redecorated and looks attractive. The brunch menu provides a range of dishes at weekends from 0900 - 11.30. We chose fruit - a good selection plus toast and home made marmalade (and there was plenty of the latter). Staff very helpful for my slightly disabled wife.

          Outstanding food but overpriced and more inline with London prices. New deco gives a great nostalgic, Art Deco feel. Simple things missed on i.e. even though they put a sign on the outside of a side door explaining to use the main entrance, this door was left unlocked meaning people were using it walking next people who were eating and causing a constant draft. Even if this was a fire exit, it could be locked with an emergency release. 10-12 years ago, The George was fantastic. The overtime it lost its quality and customer focus, looks like this place is on the re-bound. Looking forward to going back.
