    Unlike other local pubs and eateries, customers were spaced apart. It felt Covid safe. Food was good, service great, there was a good buzz around the place. Will go again.

    We were met and greeted at the door as we walked in, shown directly to our table and asked what drinks we would like before we were even seated! We had requested a table in the conservatory, but were not offered one nor given any explanation or the opportunity to query this. The music level, from the start was too high and we discovered we were seated directly beneath a loudspeaker. We asked for the music level to be reduced, which it was, and then we could discern a guitarist strumming somewhere but with the music and the general noise level we could not hear what was being played. The food was good - in particular the roast beef was great! Overall - too rushed and too noisy but the food good. Thank you.

    Roast beef was tender and vegetables were fresh and well-cooked. Yorkshire puddings had a very strange texture and disintegrated in the mouth like rice paper. Pizza crust was the same.

    Very cold in restaurant, asked to be moved to a warmer area, we were declined, bar / restaurant staff collected in the cushions from the outside area and this rendered the restaurant freezing, chips tasted like oven chips, really rather disappointed as last visit was superb.

    The service is always a disappointment , the waitresses are all quite young and not very attentive . We tried for 10 mins to pay our bill only then to be told if we pay cash you don’t get any change !!! That’s complete rubbish . My friend had a salad but the dressing was missing so we had to ask for that and the Cajun chicken burger was nice but really hard around the edges

    A lovely setting for a Friday evening meal out. Service was very prompt, waiting staff were friendly and the food was tasty. The only thing that lets the place down is the silly price of the wine. £7.30 for a 175ml glass is just plain daft for a village pub/ restaurant in Bedfordshire. The West End perhaps, but at that price it doesn’t encourage you to stay. The waiting staff said the price of the wine was a common complaint.

    Unfortunately the food was cold and dry. We had roasts and kids fish and chips and it was all really disappointing. The roast is more like chicken and potatoes, it’s not a hearty roast at all and when it was also dry and cold it tasted even worse. The menu is very limited and I didn’t like that dogs were allowed to dine in the restaurant I thought that was unhygienic.

    Lovely place and setting but service was slow and food was average. Don’t bother with the pizza, looked great but tasted bland, we might of just been unlucky this time but it didn’t leave a lasting impression. The menu is a bit small in my opinion and the wine had was good. We also had the lamb burger and the meat and filling was very good but overall our dining experience was ok. This place was recommended to us, so the bar had been set quite high and I think we expected better which is probably our fault. Lovely place if you just want to got for a drink and the Garden/Courtyard had a nice ambience.

    Food and service was great and the food was lovely and hot. One of the party had the fish and chips and was very impressed with the quality of the fish. We were a little concerned when Matt started playing but the level was fine and provided a pleasant background for us. Thanks, we always enjoy The George x

    Really enjoyed our meal, very nice staff, nice atmosphere, definitely recommend and will return. Bay markings would help in the large car park where we struggled to find a space as many others had parked very inconsiderately - had to wait for soneone to leave and when I parked my LandRover there was enough room for another car at the side!

    Firstly, I would recommend coming here for a quality, tasty meal that was nicely presented with great selection of vegetables. Greeted straight away. Service great. Fantastic selection of veg with lamb roast. Love swede and carrot mash. Although, I only had one floret of cauliflower cheese. Would ask fit two on return visit 😃 Amuse bouche to start. Lovely touch. Water at table without having to ask Soup came in a crusty cob. Love that. Good roast potatoes and plenty My sort of place. Lamb not pink but tender with great taste Decor and plates are inviting Sanisters in table. My only criticism is minor- Yorkshire was massive (lovely it was) but over cooked. Bit too brown and crispy. Could have been a one off. Don’t know. Still ate and enjoyed it.
