Very helpful and responsive staff, nice pub atmosphere with good food. Although there was a party in the conservatory room, the layout meant that the main pub restaurant did not feel noisy.

The dining experience was very good. We regularly meet for lunch here. My only adverse comment is about the booking process. Upon our arrival the staff at the George had no record if our booking. Fortunately there were tables available for us, although not the table we would normally have. Thus is not the first time that a booking I have made here using Open Table has not been recorded by the restaurant. There must be some breakdown in the communication between Open Table and the George which Zi suggest you investigate

A warm welcome at the bar and good service there. A wait of approximately 40 minutes for a main course we found to be too long. Perhaps we should have been advised of this when we ordered. When it finally arrived, the food was delicious.

The place was EMPTY. At just after 9pm the vacuum cleaner came out - staff started to go home and the back door was opened to allow rubbish to be taken out causing an enormous blast of cold air to sweep through the pub!

Food was OK but I HATE properties that start to clean up when there are customers dining- hotels do it at breakfast time!!

No wonder it was empty!

The George was an absolute delight to find particularly as I have coeliac disease and have to be very careful where I eat. The choice was fantastic and it was the first time in a long time that I felt on a par with my friends in terms of having options. Service was attentive and efficient and all the staff were very friendly.

Went to the George for my wives birthday on 5th Febuary, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was piping hot, plentiful, and well presented. So good we plan to go back very soon.

Although it is not a particularly short distance outside Cambridge, it is well worth it.
Best Sunday Lunch I have had outside of the home environment.

We couldn’t fault our evening out at The George — as a table of 8 we received good service and delicious food, and we appreciated the low noise levels so we could hold easy conversations with each other. We would certainly be happy to come again.

The visit to the George Inn was not as successful as previous visits. the food was a less quality standard than previous visits. the service was slower, from point of order to food on table was 40minutes, a long time compared to previous experience there.
Will be visiting with friends in February hoping that service and quality will have returned.

Food was ok-ish although my roast beef was raw. Regarding the service, it is the second time I am visiting this pub and my experience is identical to that of my first visit: Service is disorganized and VERY VERY SLOW!

Would thoroughly recommend The George. Always great food and lots of choices (especially with regard to pies). We had a steak this time and have to say it was absolutely superb. Cooked just the way I asked for. The staff are extremely helpful, friendly and they give great service.

Food was fair value although the starters were over priced. Staff processed you rather than serviced you at the table.It seemed down to inexperience amongst the staff that said food was served hot which is always good.

The calamari was a bit chewy and the portion of cod was so enormous I could not finish it. Smaller and more flavoursome would have been preferable.
My companions chose other dishes and were satisfied.

This is the 3rd time we have visited The George since its new ownership. The staff are so friendly and the food is exceptional. There is something for everyone. I did have my doubts about going back after a terrible experience with the landlady who previously was there. Now I would advise anyone in the area to pay them a visit they won't be disappointed.

Absolutely fabulous Sunday roast. In fact the best we have had in Cambridge. Loads of beef and cooked exactly as we like it. Everything was freshly cooked rather than warmed up as you get in a lot of restaurants. Also had other meals there which have been fab too.

Sorry but disappointing. We arrived and they didn't know we had booked a table on line until he looked it up. Very young lady waited on us with no experience. (Not her fault obviously not been trained). Ordered wine and the bottle was just placed on table for us to open and pour. Had to request the correct glasses for red wine. One of our party had the fish which was excellent but the rest was ok. Salmon over cooked and dry.

The meal was excellent. We had a to wait for a while because there was an 18th Birthday party in another room which over flowed into the seating area. It was a little loud and we had to wait while the buffet was served to them before our hot food arrived. The food was fine when it arrived. I think we should have been pre warned that there was a party on before we booked.

Family birthday celebration with five adults and three children. Despite being very busy service was extremely good and staff very friendly. Food was good and served hot and with a smile and for what we thought was a reasonable price. Certainly recommend on our experience. Lots of choice around Cambridge but we will certainly by happy to come back again. Being able to book through Opentable is also a big plus.
