Our booking was for early in the evening and the service was very slow so it is likely that it would be even slower later on. As a result we decided to curtail our meal at 2 courses.

The atmosphere was okay, but the temperature was hot inside when we arrived the whole party took off their jumpers immediately, and it got even warmer as the time went by. It became too hot for comfort.

The food was average, but much of it was luke warm. While this seems to be a common problem for many restuarants it is still not a welcome practice.

All in all it was an average experience, so not one I would recommend to a friend.

I meet friends here a couple of times a year. We always have great food, but this time they had run out of about half of what was on the menu. This was at 7pm on a Friday night.
Prices have crept up too. But it's still a nice place to eat.

Terrible service and food portions small. They emoved my review from Facebook as they didn't like what they read. I will be adding this to TripAdvisor rtoo. The left hand didn't know what the right hand was doing. Very polite waiters, but management clearly have no idea how to look after customers.

Enjoyed good meal here with friends. Although car park looked really full it was not too busy in the restaurant. Good atmosphere and good service. My only grumble is the limited choice of vegetarian dishes on the menu.

The food was amazing here and that’s what would make us come back. Unfortunately the experience was ruined by a rude waiter who was quick to rush us out and did not look after us properly at all. We had to wait 45 minutes for our food to come out. Poor choices on the dessert menu. But the food was excellent!

We come to the george every year on our anniversary and it's always lovely. This year was different, nearly an hour waiting for three portions of chips and two sandwiches. When the food eventually arrived the chips were fries not chips which I wouldn't mind except it was £3.50 per portion and you could get the same amount on the 99p menu at MacDonalds. Hubby ordered BLT and got a club Sandwhich which was over £8. It's changed completely. I didn't order any food for my daughter as I refuse to pay £6.26 for a children's meal. She is only two and there were no other options. Sorry The George, we loved you once but after having a not great meal last year aswell we won't be back.

Staff were exceptional. Due to a family crisis I had to ask restaurant to hold my table for over an hour, which, they did without hesitation. Staff were attentive and friendly. Food was delicious and piping hot. I had never visited the George before, it was a last minute choice before visiting The Festival of Lights at Longleat, but, I would definitely visit again. Thank you George Inn for a very pleasurable dining experience, hope to see you soon.

It was the first time that we had been to the George and found it very friendly and cosy. The food was good but we would have liked a bigger selection of sweet. The décor could have been more Christmassy but the atmosphere was good. The staff were very friendly and our waitress was lovely. We would definitely be going again maybe to try the Sunday menu. All in all very good.

I realise that you had a big party going on but that should not mean ignoring your ordinary diners which is how we felt. The food was great but having to go and find staff THREE times to get service during our meal was appalling. You asked !!

Service was really slow, food was burnt and not what we ordered. Ordered a pie and was told it would have no top on it which was fine but came as a stew with bumplins? I have been to the pub a few times and this was an awful experience.

Very welcoming, happy to accommodate special dietary requirements. Good food and service.

Avoid the room at the North end of the building as the fire fills the room with smoke unless the windows are open, so you have to put up with cold draughts and traffic noise from the A350. When this happened, we were offered a different table elsewhere in the building, and luckily there was a table available.

We always have the Steak, Ale and Mushroom Pie. It's better than homemade!
The George Inn still has a pub atmosphere as opposed to a restaurant, which we prefer.

The George is a great pub and one we always stop to eat in on the way home from Longleats. The famous steak and ale pie is simply a winner. I have it every time now! Great draught ales too for those not driving!

Adult meal was good but lacked any vegetables. Children’s food was very over cooked almost burnt. We were charged £2 for a tablespoon of baked beans that were missing from a child’s plate.
Warm and well decorated pub. Very inattentive staff. Will not be returning.

we stayed over at the George inn, and also ate there that evening. The menu was varied, and we all found something we liked.

The portions were excellent, even thou i ordered a small portion i still had trouble eating it all. We didn't need to see a dessert menu as we were all too full.

Highly recommended for food and their accomodation

We decided to visit based on the menu looking as though the chef knew how to cook. Unfortunatly this wasn't the case & the food really let it down. The venue itself is lovely & has riverside seating. Had we gone for the garden menu (burgers etc) then it may have been different but we chose to sit inside & order from this menu.
My partner had a vegetarian aubergine dish which had been plonked on a plate swimming in a tin of chopped tomatoes. I had the fish cakes in Panko (not) breadcrumbs with poached egg & hollandaise. The potato greatly outweighed the fish, it had been blitzed so much it was mushy & lacked any kind of seasoning whatsoever. I asked for a wine list but no one came back to take my order & we were probably served by 5 different staff members throughout the meal. Coincidentally no one came & asked how the meal was until I went to pay at the end. I wouldn't reccomend to any of my friends which is a shame since the location is lovely.
