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 daughter works for a hotel herself so my family decided to treat me to dinner after her shift. Had a wonderful welcome... Friendly and from the off they couldn't do enough for us. 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

6 of us for lunch, Saturday 7th March 2015. Menu good. My mushroom starter was adequate but my fish Thai curry for main course was excellent, so fresh and tasty. Welcome good. 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.

We were pleasantly surprised by our room. So much space for our two kids and still space even after the camp bed and travel cot was put up. The staff and breakfast were great too. 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

We wanted to stay in the centre of Dereham so the George was pretty much our only option and whilst location was great our room was disappointing with the fire escape door leading to the emergency exit at the rear of the property in the corner. Could have at least been covered with a curtain. Very basic with the smallest... More

My wife took me for a birthday celebration meal at The George last night. Apart from the booking, nothing had been pre-arranged or set up! - BUT - it turned out to be superb. I felt I just HAD to share the experience and create a recommendation. The lamb dish I had was the best I have EVER tasted, and... More
