We stayed for 3 nights at very short notice and the staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. Lovely hotel with 3 separate dining areas providing top-rank dinners with flair and aplomb. Top marks to all the chefs! We were in room 10 which has its own street door that enabled us to come and go as we needed, sometimes quite... More

Best part of the dinner at New Year was the starter. Champagne on arrival came after the starter was served and I was poured just a quarter of a glass!! Main course was almost cold and meat was tough. Dessert was very bland. Venue was far too small for the live band thought my ears would bleed. Certainly NOT worth... More

Booked Christmas lunch at The George as this was local to our work location. Ordered Gluten free options for the 3 courses but unfortunately the Chef's idea of Gluten free is to not put things on the plate. Waiting Staff were very helpful and pleasant and would return to the kitchen to ask for the Gluten free portion of meal... More

I stayed for one night just before Christmas with my son and paid £70 for the room and two breakfasts which I thought was good value for money. The room and bathroom where both large and had all the amenities that I need. There was a slightly musty smell in the room but nothing unbearable.. The bed was very comfortable.... More

Having recently been here for a drink we decided to try the food & I'm glad I did. Not badly priced, portion sizes are adequate to filling. But it's the quality! I had a homemade burger & my partner had sea bass & not a complaint could be found.... Another couple nearby had fish & chips & I'm sure the... More

Difficult to find a good hotel but last night I was very lucky on a cold, wet and windy night in deepest Norfolk. The George is simply a gem of a hotel/pub with beer, wine, dinner, staff, room and breakfast all of the best order. Thanks for a great stay.

We stayed at The George for 2 nights and were pleasantly surprised. The room we had (203) was large and very well appointed, as was the bathroom. However, this was let down by the very poor water pressure - possibly the worst shower we have experienced in the last 20 years. We complained after the first night and although the... More
