Lunch menu is somewhat limited but sandwiches very good but you can dine al la carte in the restaurant. Nice place for morning coffee where you can sit on large comfy sofas and in the Summer, tables are placed outside in the high street.

Amazing food!! We asked for something that wasn't on the menu and they were more than happy to accommodate us. Great service too. Would definitely come back again.

After being greeted by a sullen lady who indicated our seats we waited ages for a menu to be brought to us and even longer for the food to be brought to the table. We had ordered a traditional roast meal with turkey. The meat was ok but the vegetables were awful and lukewarm, - "roast" potatoes which were white... More

Free parking a bonus. We had... More

What a disappointing visit this was, warm, or cold tea, coffee was just as bad, no one came in to ask if we needed anything, when we first got there and was shown into the room there was no light's and no one seemed to know where the light switch was, so there we sat until a member of staff...

It's fair to say I was going to need some persuading to get me through the doors of the George's restaurant...afternoon tea with free-flowing prosecco for £25? That ought to do it! The bar area of the George is grotty to say the least - sad looking sofas even the most desperate of charity shops would refuse to take, suspect... More

At the George for a group booking for lunch (pre ordered) so they knew we were coming and what we were going to eat. The chicken was a little dry and lacked flavour, the gravy would have been more suitable for beef. The vegetables (broccoli and red cabbage) were OK but the potatoes were hard and the food wasn't well... More
