We visited The George yesterday for lunch - there were seven of us in total. Everything went off to a good start with the drinks. We are a fairly patient group as we were on our holidays but to be honest a 45 minute wait for food with no warning that it was going to take this long is a... More

We revisited The George at the weekend and had another great stay. The room refurbishments have been carried out beautifully, the room had lovely views over the harbour and the bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed a delicious dinner (Dover sole & scallops with chorizo) on Saturday evening and the Sunday lunch carvery was excellent and plentiful. The staff were... More

Am local, so didn't stay here; just had lunch there last week with a friend. Just fancied hamburger & chips, as I noticed on their website 'Gourmet Hamburgers.' The staff at order were extremely slow (they were concerned with a customer who's credit card hadn't worked.) & not interested in us. The burgers took 15 mins. to arrive (we had... More

It's not a bad pub,but it can be a little pretentious. Beer very good but the food i think is a bit steep.Nice and Handy for the rest of Westbay,and its nice to sit outside at night although you have to cross a road from the garden to the pub to get a drink. Kiddie-winks please take care.

We had a one night stay at the weekend just over a week ago. We booked directly with the hotel and our rate included breakfast the following morning. The rooms have been recently refurbished to a very high standard, and there are thoughtful touches such as blackout blinds in addition to curtains, essential for west facing rooms. However, I feel...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The George is located on the Harbour in the heart of West Bay, Dorset. This striking Georgian building stands proudly on the harbourside of this popular fishing village, made famous by being the backdrop to the recent BBC Tv series "Broadchurch".The hotel has recently been taken over (01/10/2013) by Chris and Kim and they are busy welcoming guests new and old to The George. The hotel is open all day and serves fresh locally sourced home cooked from the restaurant, including daily specials using fish sourced from the fishing boats in the harbour. . The bar serves a good selection of wines and exceptional real ales from Palmers Brewery, located a mile away in Bridport.There is plenty to do in the area, with several of breathtaking coastal walks and leisurely strolls along the beach front.There are several charter boats waiting to take keen sea fishing visitors, or a Rib taxi that will take you to nearby Lyme Regis and return a couple of hours later. Whether you are looking for a adrenalin packed weekend, or simply a relaxing break by the beautiful harbour, The George Hotel is the place to stay. Chris and Kim look forward to welcoming you to The George soon. ... more   less
