My husband & I stayed one Friday night mid November, on a dinner, bed and breakfast deal we saw online and loved it. Being regulars at the sister guest house The poplars in Thirsk, we felt this was a nice change of location for us to try.
The George is situated in the small, quiet North Yorkshire village of Wath approx 5 miles from Ripon. There isn't much in the village itself aside from the inn, a lovely old church and houses, all surrounded by beautiful countryside, so the place is quiet .We had one of the suites to the front of the building which was large, very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The en suite bathroom incorporated a bath with an overhead shower and was also a lovely large space. I had wondered if we might be disturbed by noise at closing time as it is also an inn but it was wonderfully quite. Parking is to the rear of the building and there is also a beer garden but we didn't take a look at that given how cold it was outside. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the meal was wonderful. We ate in the dining room from the al a carte menu, but there is also a decent bar menu which included old favourites such as steak and ale pie and fish and chips, and the food we saw people eating in the bar area looked very good.
I had steak which was cooked to perfection, and my husband had monk fish which he thoroughly enjoyed. We both opted for a chocolate torte for dessert..delicious.
Breakfast was also served in the dining room. You helped yourself from a selection of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt and fruit juice and ordered from a menu a cooked breakfast which was cooked to order and served with either tea or coffee and fresh toast. Breakfast was beautiful and set us up for the day.
We both enjoyed the stay and look forward to going back.
