We celebrated my father-in-laws 90th birthday with a family meal and stayed over night. The hotel could not have been more helpful. My daughter has a diary allergy and nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the chef. The meal was fantastic and when certain items needed to be changed because of the dairy allergy, it was no... More

Lovely hotel that lives up to it's name George with all the guest rooms named after a famous George. A test in the morning whilst eating their perfectly cooked, high quality sausage, bacon etc is to try and remember all the names. Complimentary newspapers and early morning tea and coffee are much appreciated as, unusually, there are no tea and... More

A very nice hotel in the middle of a small village with a sunny beer garden and good restaurant. Well equipped modern rooms with friendly attentive service. Food and drink tends to be a little expensive, the breakfast was freshly cooked to order

We visited on a Saturday, booking for lunch. We were shopping at Anne Furbank, love that shop. The restaurant was empty but the bar adjacent was noisy with a wedding party. The Assistant Manager showed us to our table. The table was near the noisy bar and in the middle of two thoroughfares. We asked to be seated elsewhere but... More

We had saturday lunch here, ordering from the table d´hôte menu provided, which has a selection of 5 starters, main ands desserts. It's £20 for two courses, or £25 for three. We'd booked in advance, and were taken to a table which is essentially slap bang in the middle of a thoroughfare to the bar area. Since the restaurant was... More
