I called in on spec for a meal with my partner, I thought the pub had “character”. Ordered the baked camembert platter starter which was nice, not much can go wrong with melted cheese and bread, we both enjoyed that. Some items on the main menu were not available, so we both had the Hawaiian gammon, I think it’s the...

Whilst ambling through Castleton looking for a cafe we were lured into The George by the blackboard outside declaring 'homemade chips'. Never able to resist real chips made from real fresh potatoes we eagerly found a table. One average child's meal of nuggets, our youngests firm favourite, a turkey baguette served with chips and salad and a couple of extra...

Lovely inn/restaurant. Great atmosphere, home cooked food and service. First visited The George Inn, Dec 2012. Castleton looked so pretty with the christmas trees decorating the streets. Enjoyed doing last minute shopping there. Returned at Easter and had lunch at the George again. Will stay over next time.

booked in late on my second visit, i thought it was good the first time but it just gets better! we have booked a brewery trip to see how the beer is brewed and are taking 10 of my business partners to see it all. Well done to the George a great place to stay away from home.

We had left The George alone for months because it fell short of our expectations. We visited today because we had an errand to run in the area and it was convenient for lunch. We ordered the fish,chips and peas,a cup of tea and a pint of Slater's Top Totty. The meal was excellent,the beer superb and the tea was....tea!...

We have 6 beers on handpull with a large selection of lagers, ciders and soft drinks. For those who wish we also have a cocktail menu. We do occasionally have live music on ... more   less
