A lovely welcome at this charming historic pub was followed by a good reasonably priced pub dinner which was chosen from a limited but very nicely varied selection. The bedrooms are characterful but most front the main road and are noisy. Any at the rear of the building overlook the courtyard and although charming are also likely to be suffer... More

My Wife and I look forward to a return visit to the George the whole experience was perfect. The Building has been restored allowing you to travel back in time but still enjoying modern comforts. The Dinner food and service excellent the Breakfast spot on well done to all.

We had a lovely stay here. The building and room were absolutely beautiful. Located in a stunning little village. The pillows were slightly big and hard. The shower/bath was under a sloping roof, so not possible to stand up and shower. But the character of the place more than made up for it. Breakfast took quite long to come out... More

After planning a weekend trip to Bath I chose to stay at the famous George Inn located in the beautiful village of Norton St Philip, which is just a short 20 minute drive or 30 minute bus ride from the centre of Bath city. Upon first arrival when pulling in to the car park, you can't help but notice the... More

On our way home to Bournemouth we decided to stop for something to eat. The first pub we went too was ok but didn't have a great selection of food, so we asked a local to recommend somewhere and luckily the pointed us to the George Inn! When we pulled up in the village, we realised this was going to... More

My husband and I stayed at The George in February and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The building is beautiful and is very historic. The meals we had were delicious. The room contained a four-poster bed and a sloping floor that I actually rolled down! The one thing with the bed is that we eventually had to turn around in it... More

Ancient is an over-worked word in connection with English pubs, but is entirely appropriate when referring to this building, which was already old when the Duke of Monmouth passed this way in 1685. We have driven past it fairly frequently, had a pub lunch here on a couple of occasions, and decided that the time had come to spend the... More

A truly incredible step back in time. The inn has stood for 700 years, and offers its lucky visitors the chance to glimpse a place which time forgot. The food was superb, the staff were friendly, we could go back again and again.

We were attending a family party in the area and needed accommodation that allowed pets as we have a 7month old puppy. The George was perfect. Our room was lovely with spectacular views, the staff were courteous, friendly and helpful, breakfast was very nice and best of all our puppy was made very welcome in all areas apart from the...
