Food was amazing as usual but service was very poor. We were only offered one drink the whole time we were at the restaurant and we was there for three hours, and it was very hard to get staffs attention to ask as well.

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!

Lovely venue and ambience - but service slow - original order lost but staff dealt with it graciously and apologised. Good acceptable but IMO overpriced. Great staff and venue would return again but probably for drinks rather than food .

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.

The George Inn was great, as always! Quality food and drinks. We had a group of 4 and everyone loved the food. The only bit of criticism is the service for drinks has been slow every time we’ve been. We ordered food and drinks all at the same time and after 20 mins they both arrived together too! Seems like more bar staff is needed. Everything else was perfect.

We had some lovely food. The employees were lovely too.
Only reason it wasn’t a five star was because we had no cutlery until desert (although I’m sure it was an honest mistake).

Other than that, I can’t fault The George.
Thank you for a good experience!

We started with a lady waitress who was lovely. We then need up with a rather surly young chap. Tall, slim with short dark hair. We were table 81 I think. Anyway he wasn’t particularly helpful when we wanted to order dessert and was a little rude. This is not something we have experienced before at the George and bearing in mind we spent £300 with you we felt a little irritated by it (even if we had
Only spent £100 we would have not expected to be challenged when we tried to order!)
Anyhow - apart from that - a lovely evening - thank you

Freezing cold ~ I booked our table weeks ago, but it felt like we had been put on the worst possible table. Under a very loud speaker no where near a heater. We asked to move but was told the heated tables were booked

Service: Slow. Forgot our mains but did give us a round of drinks on the house.

Nice ambience and they had a singer which was good.

Although booked for 2hrs. We ended on the table for a lot longer which was great.

Food: Prawns starter was nice, just a little oily. Pizza base could have done with being cooked a little longer.

George is my local, usually the food and service very good.
