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

Were actually staying in another hotel but due to a party, was very busy so, we popped across the road for an evening meal! The Brasserie fitted us in with not trouble whatsoever, and we weren't disappointed. The dining room is relaxing and very well decorated - a nice ambiance. The staff were also excellent, very professional even to the... More

Whilst staying in Buckden, I visited the George twice and was not disappointed. The food was presented beautifully and tasted as good as it looked. I remember commenting that the scallops were flawless. The menu is seasonal and changes daily, so if you get a chance to try them, do it! It is quite pricey but I'd definitely recommend here...

To the George for Valentine's Day. A warm welcome, drinks in the cosy pub, a comfortable room and an excellent set dinner. What more could we ask? We don't always have complaints but frequently have little niggles or observations. It's the first time that we've had nothing but praise all round. The table offered to us was in the middle...

This was a very convenient place to meet up being close to the A14 and just off the A1. It is a comfortable and friendly place, parking was easy on the road fortunately as the car park was full. It was doing a brisk business but we were given great consideration, the staff were helpful and efficient. Everyone ate all... More

Often stop here en route for coffee or tea and have always been impressed, enough to choose to stay. Although the room was on the small side (I booked comparatively late so most rooms taken), everything else was faultless. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable, the food was fantastic and I would thoroughly recommend it.

This is the third time I have stayed at The George. The staff are exceptional; polite, attentive, friendly and mindful. General ambiance is relaxed and comfortable. The rooms are well appointed and each room is individual. Each room has it's own personal touch. The food in the restaurant is very good indeed; I've never had a bad meal !! I... More

This is the second time I have stayed at the George Hotel, because the first time was so good. Everything I have to say about this hotel is positive from the staff and food, to the accommodation and those amazing showers. One, small negative, is it's location, it's not great if you were thinking of commuting to London as a... More
