Before I begin I would like to say that I have visited The George in September and had a superb weekday lunch and on that basis decided to book for Sunday Lunch today. Although the pub had the usual clean and extremely pleasant surroundings and the staff perfectly pleasant if inexperienced. It could not have been more different occasion. A... More

Dear Stephanie It is such a shame and a huge disappointment to myself personally that you had not had a pleasurable experience with us on Sunday. It was an exceptionally busy lunch post Christmas, however this only explains a longer waiting time but not an excuse for poor quality food. We pride ourselves on freshly prepared, all home cooked food.... More

There is nothing wrong with this pub..staff were a delight pub was clean. Fire made it cosy. Our meal was nice. If I was picky I'd say portions were small. I left still hungry tbh. Paid £20 for steak and it did eat better than it looked. Chips were lovely and my family all ate and enjoyed the chicken they... More

Family sunday lunch and birthday get together. A faultless three course meal for five. Friendly welcome, lovely ambiance with the log fire lit. Our dog was also made welcome in the bar area. Lovely to go for a meal and not feel rushed. Looking forward to returning very soon - thank you

I have not been to The George for many years. What a fantastic surprise when I walked through the front door - very tastefully decorated entrance and dining area. It was amazing! Helen, the owner, was very welcoming and was extremely friendly throughout our visit. We did not have starters so there was a short wait for our main course... More

We had lunch here, and the pasta and pesto was an inch of oil in the bowl, no flavour just tasted of slimy oil, the Sunday lunch beef was overcooked and tough. Vegetables were OK. The Thai green curry was nice, quite spicy but I like that. Brown rice could have been offered. The aubergine dish was not nice, again... More
