Our second visit to The George & we will certainly have a third. A fantastic place & a real gem in the dales. Great rooms, great food & great atmosphere all round. Perfect in every way & I cannot recommend highly enough.

We have just spent a lovely weekend at the George and found this place to be outstanding in all respects. The friendly welcome by the Landlord and Landlady as well as all the locals had us feeling at home straight away. So much so that we took part in the late night dominoes championship. The food and accommodation were equally... More

We had such a great time for our wedding anniversary in September that we decided to go back for a two night stay over the New Year. This time we stayed in the other room (the one on the right), at Charles' suggestion because it is slightly bigger. It is and is just as beautifully presented. The usual complementary sherry,...

A great New Year at The George Inn. Charles and Becci really looked after us. Superb room, excellent food and company. Fantastic location and even a mild climate for winter! You could not ask for more.

We have stayed at The George on several occasions and eaten here even more. It's a lovely cosy pub with great food much of it home cooked by Becci. Charles and Becci are perfect hosts and we love seeing their two dogs Darcey and Bridie come into the pub when everyone has finished eating. The rooms are spotless with lots... More

Dear Mr Cope, We very much regret that you did not enjoy your visit to The George Inn. As I said to you at the time it was not a good situation which has never happened before. You must agree that everything was cleaned up immediately and disinfected straight away. All our other guests did not seem to be so... More

How lovely. A retreat away from the rat race. The room we had was just lovely, the attention to detail wonderful. I would spoil your stay if I told you more. Enough to say the little extras for the price will make you smile The breakfast was simply the best we have ever had, local grown and very good quality... More

The George Inn I echo all previous comments about the highest quality at the George Inn. Every detail has been considered and only the best solution provided. Come see for yourself. When choosing a place to stay in the Dales another important factor is noise, traffic, trails, and food. Thoralby comes out on top on all scores. A single track... More
