Party of 9 old friends on annual get together had excellent dinner. No complaints apart from rather over salted sauce with Goat's Cheese Fritters! Spring Lamb cooked 3 ways and roasted fillet of seabass fantastically good. Service friendly and efficient. Looking forward to next visit.

What to say. I have had many meals at this fabulous place. And it was with a sad heart I had to visit today because as I passed Buckden with my daughter and her friends, unexpectedly her friend was violently ill. I won't go into details, but I was left with a small packet of wet wipes and just The... More

I had heard a lot of positive views about The George from friends, so when passing through the village recently decided to stop for lunch. The food was ok, the drink was ok, the service was.....ok. I must admit, I was a little underwhelmed. Maybe I missed something, but to me The George was good, but nothing particularly special. This... More

Excellent place to stay some days for people traveling along the UK. Very nice in the inside and pure care on the outside. Good food but there are not giant servings... so if you are hungry you should think twice.

A really relaxing Sunday lunch. Arrived at around 1.30 and had a couple of very nice Prosecco's to get into the mood after Sunday Mass across the road at St. Hugh's. A very nice wine list although my choice of Red was not available. The staff were attentive but not overly so. The food was superb followed by coffee in... More

This hotel is simply superb, with fantastic rooms, mouth watering, eye catching food, with service second to none. And to top it all off was great value. One of the best family weekends we have ever had- thank you for everything you did for us The Ryan family

Went here on Saturday 16th May with my husband, daughter and in laws, to celebrate my 50th birthday, and have to say that the service was extremely disappointing. I had the steak and it came char - grilled (no mention of this on menu!) and medium, not med/rare as I had asked, although they did change it, it was not... More

Brief, but very comfortable stay in this very smart hotel within pretty village - staff could not have been more obliging and dinner was excellent. Would only add that a full length mirror would have come in handy and loo plumbing could do with some modernising, however appreciate it is a very old building ! Highly recommend.

I chose this restaurant for my 50th birthday dinner with my family. There were only 6 of us so it wasn't a huge party. We arrived early so that we could have drinks in the bar area first but it looked so barren (bare tables, no flowers etc) so we decided to sit in the foyer which had a bit... More
