Stayed overnight whilst visiting a friend. Was blown away by the character and charm of the building. Food and service was excellent. Room was fantastic, warm, clean and comfortable, beams were amazing. Will definitely stay again.

Found this place in Sawdays guide and we spent 2 nights at the George in one of the Superior rooms (the Samuel Pepys room) with a 4 poster bed. Wonderful old inn full of character. It really is like stepping back 500 years and we loved the place and would stay again.

Booked this inn very last minute as a place to stay after a very long day at Longleat safari with my husband and two boys. Hadn't looked on Trip Advisor so wasn't sure what to expect. My jaw dropped as we pulled into this place! It's one if not the most beautiful old inns I have ever seen! Our room... More

My family and I visited for Sunday lunch and we had reserved a table. Instead of being shown to our table the lady at the bar/reception described to us where it was in the next room. We got our own menus. Had to get our own drinks, and even had to go up to the bar to place our food... More

We stayed overnight, and found the rooms excellent value very clean and like the rest of the inn full of character and charm. Dinner was nice, bar staff very pleasant but quite inexperienced, just a small thing nothing a little more training couldn't fix. Excellent breakfast would definitely recommend.

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!!!!
