It turned out more difficult than we thought finding somewhere to eat in Brecon on a freezing cold Sunday afternoon. We were lucky enough to find the George though. Excellent confit duck spring roll, wonderful roast lamb (and lots of it too!) and a very tasty brownie with cherry ice-cream set me up for the day. We all really enjoyed... More

The George was recommended by the owner of the B and B where we were staying. The George Hotel wasn't easy to find. We parked in the Co-op car park (right by Morrison's car park) and then walk down a back alley which will bring you to the George (you may need to ask!). Once you get there, it will... More

Fine ales lagers nice rooms bang smack in Brecon. We frequent here often. Barman is a bit quirky but understandably, you'll see what I mean. Nice fireplaces unbelievably gas as so realistic, lovely conservatory bit cold I'm winter but not when the heating is on, lovely place in the spring for a spot of quality lunch. Recently under new management.... More

Didn't stay here but did pop in a few times whilst in town on a brief hill-walking trip. Very friendly welcome, a pleasant visit all round. Good beer and genuine atmosphere. Enjoyed a refreshing pot of Earl Grey on both days I popped in - the perfect pick-me-up for tired legs! Overall, would heartily recommend a visit.

Poor choice I wanted a cooked dinner.. not so difficult just because I am a vegetarian..... we vegetarians are about... More

I had heard some poor comments about the food in the George Hotel Brecon and was concerned because our Christmas Party was being held there. We were a large number of diners and I must say that we had a lovely time. The food was well presented, hot and very tasty. The staff were very pleasant and helpful on the... More

I had not visited Brecon for about 12 months.I thought I would visit the restaurant for lunch. Staff were great, very helpful with great service. Choice of drinks we're great. The food came out and was piping hot. In all honesty we had haddock and the minute steak, both of which were fantastic. Portions were just right and presented very... More

I was recently part of a group that attended a christmas function at the George. I had my reservations before going as had heard negative reviews, but was willing to give it a chance. Unfortunately however my fears were realised. The food was simply not good enough and tasted of nothing. I had the parfait, which consisted of something that... More

Hotel is run down, threadbare carpet on stairs. Food was average but over priced for what you got. Room was cold, eventually got radiator working, but not in bathroom which was cold. Hot water took some time to run hot and the showe was a weak affair. Breakfast only starts at 07:30 even on a weekday so had to depart... More

Dear HerculesC13oJ I am sorry top read that you did not enjoy your stay at our hotel. I do agree that the hotel (built in 1655) does need a facelift and our owners are planning a refurbishment in 2015. This will also include an up-to-date computer system, as I agree our current one is pretty dated. We would have quickly... More
