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

I've eaten at the George Hotel on several occasions, although I have no stayed in the hotel. The food is usually to a very high standard, however the menu does not always seem to have a huge range of foods. The last time I went there wasn't much that caught my fancy. On previous occasions the menu options have been... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We do not have a huge menu at the George as we only prepare and serve fresh food. We order all our ingredients to arrive on a daily basis and prepare all dishes from scratch. For this reason we have a smaller menu than other restaurants that buy in... More

We stopped by chance on way home from holiday and enjoyed wonderful steak and lobsters meals in the bar accompanied by great beer and wine. Staff were friendly and efficient. Menu was varied and catered for most tastes will be going back.

My partner and myself had a wonderful 2 night break. The hotel was spotlessly clean, our room very spacious and comfortable (We had the four-poster bed) and the staff very cheerful and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious ranging from eggs Benedict, smoked salmon with scrambled eggs and the full English. We had the Norfolk Lamb on Saturday evening and it... More
