We had lunch at the pub on a Saturday afternoon and thought the food was absolutely stunning and very well presented. Between us we had the fish and chips, the open topped pie, the venison and the pheasant - and we finished the lot! Harrison and his team are incredibly talented and I'd recommend trying the food before the George... More

We were staying at the pub for the night so took advantage of the food available. I could not resist the crab, apple & ice cream starter which was lovely, the different elements complimented each wonderfully. For main I went for the pheasant dish & my wife wanted the bubble & squeak but didn't fancy the sausages so the chef... More

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
