Early evening without a hotel confirmed I booked this hotel last minute. This time of year it is going to be quiet... The welcome was great, my booking was only 30 mins before arrival (as a result the room was cold) offered a free drink in the bar to allow the room to warm. The food (fish chowder) was light...

We had been out & about & were hungry so popped in here as we had eaten here before & enjoyed it. Didn't know it had been recently taken over. The young chap who served us was very pleasant & confident & the lady owner very pleasant. The food, though tasty was cold, the presentation was okay but a bit... More

Although living relatively local this was our first visit. We were greeted by warm and friendly staff, the pub is very tastefully decorated. Food was amazing and stunningly presented - almost looked too good to eat! Will definitely be back again and recommending it to others, thank you very much.

Stayed overnight at The George and ate dinner in the restaurant. Friendly staff, excellent service and lovely ambiance. Food imaginative, high quality and beautifully presented. Under new ownership and management who definitely know where they plan to take their business. We would certainly visit again.

Hugely disappointed to arrive for lunch on Friday at 1.45pm only to be turned away by the chef. The website advertises that lunch is served 12-2.30 but when we arrived we were told that all that they were only prepared to offer sandwiches. Not what we'd had in mind when we were planning a nice lunch out. Really disappointed given... More

Decided to try this as it's very local to my parents new house. Fantastic food on offer. Stunning presentation and attention to detail. Service was excellent and really friendly. The bar was small and a little noisy due to a private function taking place, so unusually noisy. Food more than made up for it. Look forward to visiting again.

We hired the tastefully decorated function room for my Husband Birthday. Food was delicious.. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff were more than helpful and polite. I would recommend The George to anybody. We will be back.

The attention to detail is amazing and the owners and staff are super friendly. Love going to this place. The beer is excellent and it is situated in a quiet pretty old village. Breakfast is excellent.
