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!

Works lunch, they mixed up the table booking but no problem and messed up drinks a couple of times.
Food was excellent, will definitely go back.

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.

Stumbled across the George one Sunday on our way home from a weekend away. Couldn’t have chosen a nicer place for a Sunday lunch - staff friendly and efficient and food tasty. Thank you.

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.

A very good Sunday roast was had by our party of four. Waitress was a bit too keen to take our order, but otherwise good service.
The pub dining area is a bit dark and gloomy which is a shame. We

The overall experience was good. Had eaten there before but this was first Sunday lunch. Good food well presented. Service hit and miss due to multiple waitress covering same tables. All staff appear to refer to all genders as ‘Guys’, which was not suitable for the cliental seen there. Good meal at a sensible price. Would go back again.

First time at the new Old Crowne. Impressed with decor; very interesting and different. We went on the spur of the moment for a Sunday Lunch, expecting to pay more than usual for what we hoped would be good quality food. Starters were very good (cucumber soup/pork terrine), and my roast beef was excellent (medium to rare cooked, and very big portion), but my wife's 'roast chicken' was poor (she hates hacking meat off bone, and this was not proper roast chicken, but two roasted chicken thighs! Not easy to extract meat from bone, and quite dry). We didn't complain, as it just spoils the whole meal to have confrontation. However, I feel it is very misleading to call this a Sunday Roast Chicken, which everyone expects to be sliced meat from a whole chicken. My wife's sorbets were very tasty even if rather solid ice to chip away at. All in all an OK experience.

The George Inn is a friendly pub which serves good food. The staff are welcoming and the service is efficient. It is also good if you want to sit outside in the sunshine as there is plenty of outdoor seating.
