    The cute valentines touches were nice on the cakes, however for £29 per person this afternoon tea was a rip off! Compared to others we have had, £60 for two people to share 8 small triangle sandwich’s (Technically 2 normal cut up), 4 tiny scones, and a few finger cakes, a tea or hot drink each, totally not worth £60 nothing special! We left still feeling starving, the staff were and lovely and attentive though, and the restaurant setting was amazing just unfortunate the food and portion sizing was not worth the money

    Service was poor and the food was expensive for what was provided. We did not get the opportunity to complain as both the waitress and restaurant greeter disappeared after our dinner was placed on our table.

    The food wasn’t hot, toasted brioche was stale. They did another breakfast for me to replace and that tasted nice as it was fresh. My son had pancakes and they were clearly not freshly made but packet ones - Luke warm and he didn’t seven finish them - most unlike him! Really disappointed as the service was superb and the ambience lovely

    I am a return customer but this time I was disappointed . Ambience is good as is the service but food really was not. Expensive . My cottage pie was just mince with blob of potato on top . Not in a pot. Looked like a school dinner . My ice cream was ruined by being covered in v sweet sauce . I did not complain at the time as did not want to spoil meal for my friends but would have done so if on my own . It was busy but I shall not be coming back unless food improves or prices reflect the quality.!!

    A very nice lunch. Service was poor considering they were not busy. I had to go to the bar twice to ask for drinks and then coffee because nobody came to enquire. When the coffee finally came the waiter left our dirty crockery and cutlery on the table. Training required.

    Asked for steak medium rare and was more medium well done. The brownie was very very hard and the waitress took away our drink when there was still and inch in the bottom that we were hoping to enjoy. Friendly staff but just didn’t hit the mark for the price point. Sorry

    I have eaten in the restaurant before, which was excellent but decided we would prefer a bar meal on New Year’s Day. All three of us had an excellent meal. Service was friendly and prompt. There is a lovely atmosphere in the bar and most tables were occupied. Great place to eat.

    Been wanting to try the George restaurant for a while. Thought it was a little pricey compared to other places in the area - however we now know why. Food was lovely, subtle things to make it taste the next level compared to others. Would highly recommend especially for a special occasion. It's also a lovely place for a drink too. We'll be back.
