We booked an evening meal on Sunday for Monday as we were so let down by the Romany Rye in Dereham although 11 members of our party were staying there. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We were seated in the Conservatory which for us was ideal. Children's menus were placed on the tables and even games were brought... More

We went for a family Sunday lunch at the George, the 7 of us were greeted by an empty bar and restaurant but very friendly staff. We went to our table and all ordered the Sunday roast. What arrived can only be described as slop, whoever dished the food onto the plates couldn't count I had 2 roast potatoes others... More

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your meal. I am surprised by your comments as we had a very busy lunch and actually completely sold out of Roasts. We had no complaints from other diners, only complements. We pride ourselves on using the best local quality ingredients,. As a business we are very disappointed that you... More

Have visited this hotel recently for a lunch with a friend. It was a real pleasure as the new owners were very welcoming and the food was great. I'd certainly recommend a meal in the bar area or restaurant. Everywhere was clean and service was good.

We go to the Geroge on a regular basis, the food is excellent and unlike the other pubs in Dereham the food is good quality, well priced and the staff are very helpful. Weatherspoons is very poor compared to the George as it has an awful service. It really is the only choice for a good meal within Dereham. Also... More

Went there for new years eve party. Was excellent from start to finish. Champagne reception, canapés to die for, small bowls of food from around the world, (nice touch) and a cheese board all of which was served to you. Non of the usual queuing up. Disco and a brilliant Magician at you table. Well done Tony and Jean

Was in bad need of a decent room to sleep in this Norfolk town. This was a fairly decent sized room and reception staff very polite and friendly. The hotel is based at the end of the high street, and has a car park behind. From what I could see the bar and eating area is very pleasant, I didnt... More

Another off the cuff visit to The George for Sunday lunch in the Restaurant. Very good all round, food/service/atmosphere. Our 3rd visit in the last couple of months and we will definitely be back again soon!!

We re-visited the restaurant again for dinner with friends on a Thursday, as we had been before and was looking forward to a good evening, but although the food is still very good we were kept waiting a long time for our orders to be taken and for the food to arrive. Also, it took even longer to have the... More
