The George Inn
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.
The service was very poor. We had to chase everything.
Lovely food, service s bit slow but it was Mothers day.
After waiting for over an hour for food it was not up to the usual standard 😔 have been here so mant times before thats why we chose to eat here. Don’t know if got new chef ect but quite disappointed ☹️
great service and the man serving us all evening was so polite and helpful. Very impressed!!
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.
Very. Good friendly service,my husband enjoyed his chicken 🍔 i had ham egg &chips, the quality of ham wasent to my satisfaction but im very fussy but the rest was fine,nice selection of wine&reasonably priced,would go again 😉
Amazing food and super friendly staff! Very good value for money as well!
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.
Food was excellent service bit slow had to go to bar to get someone to take our order
Very lovely evening and will return again.
Friendly staff food was superb and the atmosphere was just relaxed and jolly
Thank you and will return again
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!
Always a lovely meal here. Repeat customer again and again!
We had a lovely meal and the staff were friendly and helpful. We have been to The George several times now and have never been disappointed.
Fish was frozen and mushy and the salad was swimming with oil.
Food was very nice. Staff were friendly but service was a bit slow.
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.
Food was mediocre and expensive. Lukewarm starters, main acceptable.
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.
Food very good as usual and arrived piping hot. Good to have a local pub with classic dishes well cooked and excellent prices. Lovely desserts, too!
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 !!
Spent the night in the Hotel side and evening meal, very nice, good quality with friendly staff.
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.
Lovely location and rooms, dinner would have been lovely except for the extremely slow service
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!
A great place to meet up with old friends and enjoy a delicious meal in pleasant surroundings.
We stayed at the George Inn for 3 nights and used the restaurant for the three evenings. We found the food very good and staff helpful. We would use again if we were in the area.
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.
Menu choices were very limited on Sunday evening with three attempts to find a meal that was available in the kitchen.
The food was nicely cooked but lacking in veg
Lovely food and great location. Only knocked a star off as we had to ask for our bill 3 times. Will be back though.
The food was very good and portions generous. We booked earlier than last time and service was quicker. Servers were friendly and helpful.
Great food, excellent service. Very good value. Highly recommend.
We greatly enjoyed our lunch. The food was very good and the staff could not have been more helpful.
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.
The food is always excellent, but the service is often slow.
