I recommend this as a hotel, restaurant and pub. It feels as though you have travelled back 500 years as well as to a very charming village. There is comfort, a friendly atmosphere and excellent food. I loved our room with its simple and authentic furnishings- comfort isn't scrimped on though. lovely bathroom and comfortable mattress- no cold troughs or... More

Went to the George today for Sunday lunch with my wife, my sons partner and our baby granddaughter. Good choice! Was met with a very friendly welcome and a high chair was offered for the baby. We choose to sit in the garden overlooking the ancient Norton St Phillip Church, this is very safe for small children as it is... More

My wife booked this location on a trip to Bath - she is very into English history. My son and i are not that fussed, but wow, what a venue!! It really takes you back in time. The decor is sensational too with oak beams and tapestries all over the place. Stone walls and bare floorboards complete the authenticity of... More

The usual problem with old inns is that they don't have all the amenities and comforts the modern traveller wants and gets used to, or that they don't take kindly to having these things imposed upon them. However, The George Inn manages this transition exceptionally well. I know the sound proofing of the rooms in the main building can be... More

Poor reception service. Hard bed. A lot of noise from the adjacent road. Asked for a room change...no chance. Poor lighting in the rooms. Watch out for the low ceilings.Would like to say something positive but can't. Couldn't wait to get away, would rather sleep in my car!!!!

Just go there for the building, it is amazing, we did not stay at the hotel but we ate in the restaurant. It was on a Sunday early evening. The menu was restricted and not everything was available, the place was empty although it was a bright sunny evening. The food was below average, the portions quite small and uneven,... More

This. 13thC Inn has a character that takes one back to the past. The food was excellent and staff very helpful. The bedroom was comfortable with oak beam ceiling. A nice night to spend before our onward journey home.

A fantastic historic half-timbered pub with historic features both inside & out. A real idyllic English historic pub. We had a pint in here on a glorious summer's day. It also has a great beer garden out back with a beautiful panoramic English countryside vista. A must if you are a tourist!

Full of character and very friendly. Great for the solo traveller. A far better experience in my view than a night in an anonymous corporate hotel. Just need to find another excuse to stay here on a business trip again!

I have recently stopped several times at this amazing pub for lunch. It has a beautiful sunken garden overlooking the cricket pitch and park. The valley stretches down and the views are breathtaking. There is some parking but it is limited. The inside is ancient and it is stepping back in history. The staff are very relaxed, welcoming and professional.... More
