A nice meal, in a pleasant atmosphere. Good food served well, but nothing to make me want to wrote home about. Unfortunately on one real ale on, not the advertised 2, but this can't be helped as beers run out from time to time

There was 2 large scones with jam and cream which were excellent. I also had a tuna toastie which came with salad and fries at a reasonable...

A party of four stayed overnight en route from London to Scotland on the recommendation of a friend. We found the hotel comfortable and friendly, old fashioned in a good way and updated with all amenities. The rooms were warm and cosy, allowing a good nights sleep followed by a hearty breakfast to see us on our way.

Thanks for that stonker!! We do have a great bunch of staff here that work very hard and have a genuine interest in doing a good job. Stuart joined us at the end of October and has established himself as a remarkably strong member of our team. I will ensure your comments reach him.

I've found historic hotels can often be a mixed bag, as by their nature the owners are custodians of buildings that exude character, stories, while requiring loving care in their maintenance and no doubt expense. The George I found to be great and pleasant surprise. Its decor was clean and tidy, relatively recently refurnished yet totally in keeping with the...

Thanks for those comments Norwich Tony, We are undertaking a structured refurbishment project, as well as having an excellent handyman who is constantly painting and improving the decor and facilities. Our team at the George seem to like dogs as much as people! See you next time.
