We were staying at a local b+b and took the owners guidance and popped into the George for a meal. The food was really nice freshly cooked and good portions. I tried the local ale which described itself as strong and yes it was.

The French do great food and make superb wine, but when you get back from holiday what better than fish and chips with an excellent pint of well kept English ale in your favourite pub, the George always does it for me

Description
The George is an award-winning, traditional, dog-friendly, family-owned and operated 17th-century village pub. We serve fresh food prepared from local ingredients, including local meat, game and foraged foods. We grow our own veg, herbs and fruit and make our own ice creams as well! We are renowned for cooking fresh fish and seafood from the south coast -- some say our scallops are so good they are "to die for." And our locally reared meat is mouth-wateringly good. We have two craft beers produced exclusively for us, three other guest ales and eight local ciders. With a lovely beer garden for the summer and a log fire in the winter, families and dog-walkers are always welcome. We have four en-suite bedrooms for b&b and a multi-purpose self-contained function room and skittles alley. But most of all there is "... ALWAYS A FRIENDLY WELCOME."
