From start to finish everything went perfectly. An idylic location with rooms to die for. We are 'foodies' and we were very impressed. They accommodated our every wish without exception. Great team team of people made it a day to remember

This is a 700 year old hotel. Staying here transports you back in time and you can easily imagine the life in the past. Behind the hotel, is a beautiful park leading to a 13th century church. Rooms were unique, in a historical way, and very comfortable. Drinks and food in the bar in the hotel were great...partly due to... More

Do not be put off by the prospect of the George being a brewery owned hotel, if it's not their flagship hotel it should be. The accommodation is quaint, the history of the Inn very interesting, food was very good and would strongly suggest the home-made pies which originate as a result of a competition between the breweries chef’s.

I booked a superior double room for my partner and I, via online (fortunately I got the last room and this was booked one week in advance!). Good parking on site and check in was done in the bar area, as there is no officially marked reception. Check in was very quick and I was shown to the room (Monmouth),... More

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.
