This pub/hotel, is a breath of fresh air in East Dereham. Attentive staff, owners/chefs whose professional skills and customer care (and customer tolerance..) are second to none. Lovely people. Good food and good beer. Intelligent free trade at it's best, and skilled owners who have to deal with the full spectrum of clientele, locals and visitors alike. Thank you.

My partner needs a gluten and dairy free diet and the waitress went to speak to the chef about what options would be suitable. She quickly returned and said that almost all the starters and main courses could be... More

My son is 25 and has downs syndrome and at no point did they make us or him feel uncomfortable. He went and ordered his own... More

Everyone loved their meal, we all had two courses. Stayed as long as we liked, service good. Surroundings slightly tired but clean. All in all 7/10, with the... More

We went to a corporate boxing event which was catered by The George Hotel and the food was superb. We had a savory platter and a dessert platter. There was an excellent variety for both platters, the food was fresh and very tasty.

Our main problem was the noise levels from the pub below. We were aware we were staying above a pub and expected noise from the... More
