The same menu is served in the bar, the lounge and the dining room. It is simply a matter of choice of ambience. Food is ample and flavoursome, from simple sandwiches to more complex composed dishes. The option for breakfast range from the classic 'Full English', through vegetarian, to eggs Benedict or florentine and on to poached haddock - Hhuge... More

It is historic and atmospheric. Very clean, good food. No shower curtain so had to have a bath. Overall To be honest we found it rather dark and creepy. This is the second time I have stayed here and haven't had a good nights sleep both times. Feeling a presence in the room. I think it is haunted but make... More

We went out of our way to visit the George due to its terrific history. We stopped in on a Wednesday in December for lunch only to be told that all three of the adorable dinning rooms were completely booked although they only appeared half-full. Who knew you needed to make weekday lunch reservations for a pub in a tiny... More

This delightful 700 year old building promised much but left us very disappointed. The bar had been festively decorated and the young lady serving there was friendly enough. Friends had been there before, had a good experience, hence the enticement to dine in the restaurant this time. The waitress was slovenly dressed; big jumper with underwear visibly hanging out behind,... More

Gorgeous pub full of charm and 700 years of history. Remains of the Day was filmed here! Enjoyed a lovely lunch next to the fire! Such a cosy and atmospheric pub!

The building is unique and interesting and for that alone it is def worth a visit for a drink, especially in front of the fire. The staff were welcoming and friendly. But don't expect much from the food we were both very disappointed with the fish pie, burger and seasonal vegetables. A shame really.

Came her last minute for dinner and I couldn't fault it. Amazing people who worked there, very friendly, helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and checked on us regularly. The open fire is such a good feature and made it feel very comfortable. The food was great, I had a small plate and that was more than enough. My partners... More

We ate in the delightful Dining Room on 2 evenings during our stay. Food was delicious, menu was sufficiently varied. Vegetables were cooked as they should be, crisp and fresh. Food was piping hot when it was brought to the table, hate having to rush my food before it gets cold! Staff friendly, attentive and very helpful. Had breakfast here... More

Stopped over at the George which we have passed for many years on our way to Bristol. Fantastic environment in a middle age inn. Although my wife liked her own lamb dinner, I unfortunately was a bit underwhelmed by my own in-house burger. Prices are a bit expensive but it was worth stopping just for the surroundings. Not sure we... More
