We went for an early family christmas meal and were impressed by the atmosphere and the gorgeous food we had, all made fresh and looked lovely. I especially loved the chocolate cake. Will definitely go again and recommend to others.

We stayed in this hotel as we were visiting family and this had the best reviews. It is situated within walking distance of the town centre. When we arrived the receptionist/bar staff was friendly and cheerful. My wife and we're put in room 4 which had plenty of room and although it is situated on the main road was very... More

Went here for a Sunday lunch and was not disappointed. Friendly staff and good service topped off by perfectly cooked beef with a giant yorkie and all the trimmings! Prices were reasonable too. Will definitely be going back again!

The majority of bar and waiting staff here are very hospitable but should you get the tall, dark haired female waitress - no name badge, beware of her attitude! After eating in here last night she almost smacked one if our party in the head with a plate whilst leaning over - now this was not intentional but her distinct... More

I am just back from an afternoon tea with my daughter which I purchased through Groupon, well worth what I paid, although a bit trickier to book! I rang the hotel to book and was told I would have to book inline through Groupon, with several weeks left on the voucher it was showing nothing available, so I rang the... More

My boyfriend and I bought a voucher for Afternoon Tea at The George and we were not sure what to expect. We were so pleasantly surprised; everything was home made, from the superb sandwiches to the scrummy scones, cakes and biscuits. It was very indulgent and very tasty, we were thoroughly full by the end and very content. We sat... More

Had heard a few good things about the food at The George, so thought I'd try it for Sunday lunch with a friend as the only other places in Dereham serving a roast are guaranteed to use frozen food! So glad I made the choice, best roast I've had in a very long time and reasonably priced too at £8.95.... More
