I visited the George recently with my wife an friends. We were well impressed by the historic building (1452 I believe) and received a warm welcome from the bar staff. The beers on show at the time included Otter and Tribute which were well kept. Our party had a range of food from the extensive menu including two types of... More

My partner and I had lunch here on Monday. I can honestly say it was the worst food we have ever had in a pub.I had the roast pork, which was sold as roast loin of pork with apple sauce and crackling..neither of which appeared. I asked the waitress where they were and she returned with a small dish with... More

Stayed here one night with my husband as I was going to a meeting in Glastonbury the next day. The reviews I read before we went were really offputting and I was dreading it a bit - but wanted to stay here for the history and atmosphere of the building. When we arrived the young lady from reception who was... More

This was my second time staying at the George & Pilgrim Hotel in Glastonbury. The first time was over thirty years ago. I never forgot the place and was very happy to return. This hotel is a jewel. It's age is evident in the beams, stained glass, uneven floors, leaded windows and, of course, the resident ghosts. The breakfast was... More

Most certainly the worst hotel I've stayed at. On arrival we couldn't find the car park so had to park about 200 yds away on the main street. Entered the hotel to find no-one on reception. After waiting several minutes we made enquiries at the bar and were given directions to the car park. There are only 4 spaces allocated... More

Amazing historic building, inside and out. Pub looked good and atmospheric. Stayed here for one night. Although we didn't get a room with a four poster bed it was still in the old part of the building and the walls and floors were wonky and un-even, which was fun. It's all part of the charm of the hotel. Ok, some... More

Beautiful Grade 1 listed building built to accommodate pilgrims visiting Glastonbury Abbey in the late 15th century. The bar area is full of character and we enjoyed having a drink there. We wanted to stay in a 4 poster room but they had all been booked so unfortunately we had a standard room. The manager was very helpful when I... More
