Ate lunch here after being let down elsewhere. The bar menu was imaginative, the service good and the food tasty. Tables are rather close together but they weren't too busy when we visited. This old building has been cleverly renovated to provide plenty of space. Worth a visit.

Unfortunately the George didn't do anything to "write home about" in relation to their mid-week Christmas lunch offering........just all rather bland and unexciting

The breakfast, a great choice from buffet to a cooked meal. English breakfast as always, try the smoked haddock and poached egg.. Evening meal was pre- ordered, from traditional roast, the vegatarian option was not a success with me.

The experience in staying in this hotel was memorable. The hotel is conveniently located at the heart of the town. The hotel building has a lot of character. You can see the old and new mixture of it's design. We were courteously greeted by the hotel staff who always wears their smile and had the chance to talk to it's... More

I was impressed with this place. You do have to order everything at the bar, whereas it looks and feels like a table service kind of place - that said, the staff were great. It was a Wednesday lunch, the place was busy (always a good sign) and the menu was very varied. The food arrived promptly and was extremely... More

Have had meals in the restaurant before but felt it expensive and very slow service (and the restaurant only had six other diners in it). Went for the Sunday carvery roast lunch which was OK but I would avoid the beef next time round. Not expensive.
