We had a really relaxing lunch, the food was excellent as was the service from a very cheerful young lady, who made us feel very special
The COVID-19 precautions in Place made us feel safe

Lovely lunch for two. Tables spaced out brilliantly and staff doing a great job under the current circumstances. Felt very safe and comfortable.

The service was very slow took 2 hours for us to have a starter & a main course!
Had to wait for the waitress to come into the dining room to order another drink as she didn’t come & check to see if we were ok etc.
We had a 33% of mains, I gave it to waitress & she said it was fine to use.
We paid the bill & when we got outside to leave I noticed the offer had not been took off.
I didn’t go back in as by this point I had lost the will to live & couldn’t be bothered.
We will not be returning in a hurry.

Excellent service. Staff very friendly. Restaurant clean and we felt totally safe. Our first meal out since lock down, although understandably a limited menu (different to what we read on website but we may have read it wrong!), what was available was very nice.

Food took 50 minutes to arrive after ordering, had no actual service so would’ve been better to use the app and was placed in the pub area for dining when restaurant booking was requested, as a result noisy group overtook the ambience of the area and made it difficult to hear when becoming busy. In all honesty the food wasn’t worth the price as arrived lukewarm and lacking flavour in some parts and the artisan bread is just chopped up bread you could likely buy from waitrose - would’ve expected slightly more for its description. All round disappointing.

Due to present circumstances, sadly did not have my favourites, but felt very safe, tables well distanced, obvious hand sanitizer available, swift table service, but was a quiet Tuesday evening.

Staff stepping up to the challenges they are facing.

This was our second trip to The George. We were looking for a moderately priced pub to meet up with family approximately half way between our home and theirs. The George ticked all our boxes. There wasn't a huge choice of food but there was something for everyone. All of the food ordered by everyone came hot and was appetising and was also reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and we were reassured that they were taking all precautions against Covid. This looks to be our new favourite venue for family meets.

The George Inn is a fabulous pub. There was plenty of choice for both adults and children. The service was wonderful and friendly. We felt completely safe and well taken care of during these COVID19 times.
The food was delicious and portions were plentiful. The pub was quite busy for a Monday evening which I really liked. We would definitely visit again if we are in the area. Highly recommended.

We liked the food and the location but due to the COVID requirements our food was delivered to a stand on to trays from which we had to serve ourselves, this is the first restaurant where this has happened. This also meant some of the plates were not served at the same time as the tray was not big enough. We were a group of 6 adults plus a small child, we sat at two tables, this did not help with the serving.

we fully understand the staff being extra careful but it detract from the meal.

The order was given to the kitchen incorrectly, so we had to wait with one meal already at the table. Ordered chicken Caesar, received seafood jacket potato. We were told it would take 20 mins to cook a chicken salad. They did not offer to remove my meal (it was a cold Buddha bowl) & then serve both meals together.

They offered the salad to come without chicken as it would be quicker, but then served it with chicken about 25 mins later. It took over an hour for us both to be served.

The Buddha bowl was disappointing. Just chopped up veg with little flavour. On a plate, not a bowl, for over £12.

The chicken Caesar was underwhelming.

Overall, food disappointing. No offer of an apology when we paid the bill & no reduction as they’d got it so wrong.

Not a great experience for our first lunch out since Covid!

The George is making every effort to make customers feel safe and comfortable eating there. I would have preferred if the waitress had a face shield however.

The food was lovely, the chips in particular were very crunchy, the best we've ever been served in a restaurant. The only complaint were we all had were the hard wooden chairs which cut off our circulation as they dug into the backs of our legs. Apart from that if we were in the area again, we'd definitely eat here again.

We had picked the George Inn as it was local to our walk we had planned. The booking process was very easy and we had booked an outside table (non available inside) and with the weather it was the best choice! The menu (appreciate it was a Sunday) was a little limited. As it was so hot we didn't fancy a roast or anything like that - some salads or similar would have been nice. We had the veggie burgers and fries (very nice fries) which were good. Nice garden.

Our first visit and was lovely food. Very polite staff however very disappointed when being given the bill was read out the price in front of everyone including the person I was treating for their birthday. Which made all parties feel incredibly awkward.

Booked a table for 6.30pm due to having a young child and our meals came just after 8pm after us having to chase this up. We received our first drinks and then didn't even get asked if we would like anymore despite all glasses being empty, we had to then go to the bar to ask for further drinks an hour after being seated. Food was ok when it arrived and the staff acknowledged our wait after however this was too little too late and a very poor evening overall.
Drinks prices seem to have been hiked up to cover for the eat out scheme also.. £3.10 for water and cordial crazy.
I would still recommend the George as I have been many times before during the day for lunch or drinks however I will not return for an evening meal.

Our starters were nice, but main course was for the most part reheated, overcooked and slightly burnt. I didn’t complain as the staff were so nice and it was eat out to help out offer. Such a shame the main courses were so poor.
