The George In Rye
First visit to The George and we were not disappointed. Hotel is tasteful and has a nice relaxing vibe and is obviously very popular.
Meal was to celebrate my husbands birthday and we all enjoyed our food.
They surprised him with some banoffee tarts which was a lovely touch.
Breakfast in the morning was good too. Can’t wait to go again.
We enjoyed our meal at The George. Lucy took great care of us and made sure all was as it should be. The food was lovely and full of flavour. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Just what we needed after a day exploring.
Breakfast was amazing
Had the big hamburger for supper which looked amazing but underneath was burnt quite badly,
Lovely ambience but the squid starter was cold, the bread accompanying the potted shrimp wasn’t charred but burnt and the salmon main was lacklustre. The steak wasn’t worth the money.
Lovely staff and love the atmosphere but very underwhelming food.
Good food and wine at reasonable prices. Pleasant service.
Superb tasting menu for the Scallop festival. Six courses with matched wine for £75 might sound like rather a lot, but the dishes were interesting, delicious and matched with equally interesting and delicious wines. We will be back in October for the Wild Boar festival!
A little more flexibility shouldn't be difficult and would go a long way. We went during Rye Scallop Week, and asked for the 4 course option from the Scallop Week tasting menu. Were then told that this would oblige us having the oysters (which we didn't want) and would exclude two of the other dishes on the menu (which we did want.) All apparently in the name of "getting our quantities right in the kitchen." So we went a la carte instead, with 2 scallopy dishes. Ceviche very nicely done. Belly pork with scallops was tough and chewy and was heavily dominated by the pernod jus. Then a waiter came and poured the rest of our (generous) wine decanters into our glasses unbidden - DON'T do that please!
Unlikely to return, certainly not for next year's Scallop Week as there is so much choice in town.
Lovely meal, so very well prepared and presented. Don't really know if I needed a special 'risotto spoon,' so maybe a little too too fussy, but friendly service and nice menu options.
Great service. Enjoyable experience
Food was delicious, Prosecco was superb and the service was second to none, especially the french waiter... so attentive but not over bearing. You didn’t even realise your glass had been refilled. Excellent
Whole meal spoilt spoilt by chatter from open kitchen including profanities. I did give this feedback to the waiting staff on leaving.
There is a good selection on the menu and the dining room is reasonably well laid out for a meal for two, you are not sitting too close to the next table. The only problem in Rye is finding a convenient car park when you go to the George.
Not up to usual standard. Slow service and really poor starters, the squid being over cooked rubber and the batter sliding off as they were too soggy
Lovely meal, really helpful especially with food choices and options for my pregnant wife
We booked this restaurant for the lobster. We were given the menu whilst waiting for our table and decided on lobster. Waited 30mins to order, only to be told they didn't have lobster! Very disappointed and spoilt our overall expectations & excitement. However, restaurant gave us free squid starter by way of apologies, and alternative options were delicious. Very good quality.
Met here for midweek lunch with our friends. It was quiet but that was ideal for us all to catch up 😊. Food was delicious- 2 of us had the scallops, one had salmon and one the steak, all enjoyed our choices. 3 of us had desserts - one had crumble, one the rich chocolate dish & one had ice cream. I could only manage a coffee. I would recommend this charming Rye hotel/restaurant/bar as a great place to eat & drink. The Chilean Sauvignon Blanc was excellent too.
had a lovely night at the George with my wife, we ate at the Grill restaurant which served very delicious food.
It's a great place to treat yourself and Rye is an interesting place to wander around too.
We will definitely be back.
The menu lacks vegan and gluten free options together - there aren't any offers to amend the meals either. Many people these days are finding out that eathing both is not good for the gut. Just a thought. Note, I only come to the George as my Father likes it otherwise I'd go elsewhere with better options.
great good as always
Our second visit to the George,another special occasion my husband's 60th Birthday.Every thing about visit was perfect ,excellent delicious food well presented,atmosphere amazing,and staff too class.Thank you looking forward to our next celebration.
After drinking and eating in the bar areaon several occasions this was our first visit to the restaurant.
The meal was fabulous, the table was very couple friendly the staff were suitably attentive with no feeling of being rushed out of the door despite it being after 10pm. Indeed paying the bill was the only time we couldn’t get a swift response!
The Chateaubriand steak to share was exceptional and both the muscles and the scallops starters we’re equally high quality. The lighter Pinot noir worked for both starter and main course alike.
Calculating the value we figured we could buy and cook for £75+ so paying £120+ seemed very good value.
Enjoyable evening meal, very good service and good atmosphere.
This was a meal with friends visiting the area
My fish and chips were very good but my wife, a vegetarian, had gnocchi (which were ok) but the menu is so limited for her. We have commented on this previously- it’s time to update and diversify.
We love the ambiance and visit Rye frequently.
Lovely atmosphere and attentive but not intrusive service.
Food overpriced for what it was and service very slow and average quality.
A wonderful place, terrific food but the staff make it. I had to dine alone last night as my partner was unwell, and I couldn’t have been made more welcome or taken better care of.
There was a wedding reception on the night with loud music ,shouting at the bar and the toilets were a mess , we walked out without eating , probably nice when quiet !! also the winter menu wasn’t on only grill menu . told by staff it’s a wedding menu and is displayed wrong on open table
Friendly atmosphere, good decoration, tables not too close. Food and wine very good. Steak cooked perfectly. Good portions. Would go again if in Rye
Had a lovely family dinner here on Christmas Eve. Chateaubriand was melt in the mouth delicious
Fantastic Chateaubriand. Very good service. Great wine.
The George is in the heart of Rye and is very lovely; highly recommend booking as they are so popular. The menu is good, although could be better veggie options. Quite dear but worth it. Service mostly ok but had to chase them a few times. Overall, would recommend and go back.
We were there for a wedding celebration. Had a dinner prior to the wedding. Service was great with a very attentive waitress. Very impressed.
Great location in the middle of the high street. Excellent service and food
We’ve only been the George a few times although have been meaning to go for a while, so glad we’ve now tried it as it’s delicious and friendly with a great atmosphere. Will definitely be back!
A lovely evening at The George, The Grill is beautifully decorated and the seating is very comfortable, the tables are not too close together.
We had a delicious two course meal and the service was attentive but not intrusive. We felt the £1.50 charge for tap water to be greedy when spending £110 .
Lovely setting, nice ambience.
Great food, great wine, great service and a lovely quiet atmosphere. A reslly enjoyable lunch
An absolutely wonderful evening and experience. The customer service was outstanding, the staff were attentive and so friendly. It was my fiancé’s birthday and we were given a lovely table and a birthday dessert. Everyone made the evening very special - thank you so much.
The food was incredible. My fiancé has not had a steak that tasted that delicious in years. And my half lobster was wonderful too.
The desserts were exceptional.
The wine list is impressive and well thought through.
I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting. Not only is it a great meal, it is a fantastic and memorable experience.
The best place to dine in Rye.
With excellent service, very good atmosphere The meal boded well. We were not disappointed, as the food was both creative, tasty and very well Prepared. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
Lovely restaurant and bar - good food and good service with lovely atmosphere and ambience
