The restaurant - and whole pub - was closed
(despite being able to confirm a booking through OpenTable).
Disappointed with OpenTable...

The pub was shut and had been since the 23.1.20 but nothing on their website or on the windows explaining that it was shut. So we turned up and it was shut.

This place has gone bankrupt and closed. Didn’t find that out until we turned up for our meal as Opentable were still taking bookings. Assume the pub owners didn’t think to let them know.

The pub was closed for 'safety reasons' with a notice dated 23.01.20 so we had no dinner! I did query with Open Table the fact that no dining times were displayed on the PG website but assured the venue was still 'live' on the system. I may check out the Prince George again to see if it reopens but I have no confidence in booking via Open Table again. The Prince George is local to my home but I would have been furious if the same thing had happened if I had travelled a distance to get to the venue. Pull your socks up Open Table!

The place is no longer open. Booked a table through you to find the place had been closed/shut down

On arriving at Prince George we found the place had closed down!! No notification or prior warning. Previous booking the previous Friday was cancelled after being accepted too.

Fantastic staff but our food was not good at all. Order was 2 roast turkey dinners, fish and chips (which my daughter did enjoy) and a gammon steak with parsley sauce. We got stale potatoes which were like they had been cooked, gone cold or frozen then recooked again, waxy and almost disintegrated inside. One meal ordered was gammon steak with parsley sauce, was brought a roast turkey dinner and when explained should be gammon, they just removed the turkey and pigs in blankets and slapped a gammon steak on and a couple of pieces of parley on same plate, no parsley sauce in sight. The carrots were rock hard and unappetising. The desserts were better. Service was very good though and I'll put it down as to being very busy as it was full but I wouldn't return.

We did a Steak & Chips Groupon offer. It was tasty, however a small portion of chips & one of our steaks was quite fatty & gristly. We ordered 2 side salads as extra's but they came smothered in a sweet/honey dressing which I did not like. So disappointed we wont told it came with the dressing. Lastly, no one asked if our food was ok... but overall its a lovely pub & we have enjoyed the Sunday roast in previous visits.

The food and service was good at the Prince George. The only criticism I would say that it is a bit pricey and when sitting on the other side and not the main part near the bar when it gets busy we found that we were forgotten about. I had to go to the bar to ask about our desserts and the bill as we were waiting for a long time for it. Other than that I would recommend it and would go back again.

We enjoyed a perfectly cooked Sunday roast, all 5 of us very happy with our meal. Slightly on the expensive side but very good quality.

There is a good choice, with something to suit everyone. The food is delicious but for a family of 4 it is a treat that we couldn't afford too often. Worth every penny as a treat though.

I think the Prince George is great value for money and the food is good. The portions are well sized (we had a chicken burger and a rack of ribs) and we loved the ambience and friendly pub vibe. I want to come back again.

Great little pub for dinner with the kids... staff and food were great! Kids had a little run around in the beer garden are which was very nice and relaxed! Great place to go after a tiring tour of Harry Potter.

This is fast becoming our favourite pub. The food is really, consistently good and the service is really great. Quick, efficient but also so friendly and welcoming. It's dog friendly which is a huge plus for us as we have a small puppy who we can't leave alone for long so we can have a relaxed evening and the steak night was fantastic value. We went for a family meal with our teenager and all of us really enjoyed ourselves

Really great lunch at the Prince George for Fathers Day. We have a young baby and the pub reserved us a nice large table in the corner so we could fit the buggy. As it was Fathers Day the pub gave out goodie bags for the Dads which was a lovely touch on my Husbands very first Fathers day. Food was great and staff helpful and friendly.

We were on a visit and stayed over in Watford. We’d had a looked at a few eating places via websites and decided to book The Prince George for an evening meal.
The Prince George is a wonderful place to eat and the drinks are good too. We were made to feel really welcome and the food on the menu didn’t disappoint either. If we’d have been staying in Watford any longer we’d have definitely eaten there again.
If ever you are down that way, don’t miss this “jewel”.
Good food, good service and good prices too.
We’ll be back!
