Cobbled courtyard, oak-timbered beams and historical charm at every corner, this is a lovely public house and hotel from which to explore the countryside and mellow stone villages of Somerset, Wiltshire and Avon. The Duke of Monmouth and Judge Jefferies have associations here with the ill-advised 1685 rebellion against James II. The food is good- excellent breakfast sausages, or poached... More

The pub is perfect. Extremely picturesque with a lovely location. The standard of the kitchen was extremely variable. The first night they "lost" half of our order and what did turn up displayed little resemblance to the description in the menu. Still the staff were pleasant and the refunded us for a particularly poor salad. The next night the food... More

We enjoyed a very tasty meal. I had seared duck breast with glazed turnips & a honey, brandy & pink peppercorn sauce with creamy mashed potato. I didn't notice what my friend had as I was so 'taken up' with mine! It is worth going to the George just to 'soak up' the surroundings. Parts of the building are 800... More

I visited this inn with my mom and relatives who live in Bristol. This is an inn that should not be missed. There is so much history here since it is the oldest pub that has been continuously operating as a pub in England. I had a glass of wine here and it was very good. I also bought the... More

My partner and I came here after a five mile walk around Norton St Philip and surrounding areas. We parked up the road a bit and came in here after the walk and were taken aback by the history of the Inn. We had high expectations of the food, but were sadly disappointed. We ordered a bacon, brie and cranberry... More

Staying here was a history lesson on its own and you actually get to stay overnight here. The staff were great, and the atmosphere amazing. The food was wonderful as was the company of other visitors.

The George is an exceptional building - incredibly quaint, the service and food thankfully is not from the past - yummy food and good service - our requests for extra toast/ sauce happily fulfilled by relaxed and friendly staff. We were incredibly hungry and our portions were satisfyingly filling after a long day working. Can recommend the duck rillette, wild... More

My husband and I have just returned from this hotel and it is one of the best places I have ever stayed. My friend went a few weeks ago and raved about it so I booked a last minute night away. We booked Sedgemoor room which had a four poster and bath. The drive down was lovely. We were lucky... More

A little bit late putting this review in ,stayed here over valentines wkend, but better late than never! Travelled down from Manchester and stayed two nights Sat,Sun and from the moment we arrived could not fault a thing. The Inn itself is unique and it certainly gives you that feeling of going back in time and has charm in abundance.... More

Samuel Pepys room brilliant if you can book it, sloping floor, brilliant ancient place! Breakfast superb as well. Three course dinner EXCELLENT including veggie choice. And of course Wadworth beer! Stay in a place unchanged since Duke of Monmouth and Judge Jeffries Times!
