What has happened to The George? We stopped off early evening for a drink and planned an early dinner to find not a soul in the place. After standing at the bar for at least five minutes a bearded young man appeared. He didn't acknowledge our presence in any way, let alone apologise for keeping us waiting, and totally avoided...

Firstly the service was extremely slow, in fact nearly no existent. The Roast Beef was tough and main hard uneatable fat. In fact while we were complaining about ours the man at the next table sent his back. It was a real disappointment that a Chef in a place like that would allow that kind of meat to leave his... More

We took my elderly mother here for Sunday lunch. The food was really good, the service was good and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Unlike other places, we did not have to shout as the acoustics in the restaurant were very good. The chairs were so comfortable and the table was large enough for us to spread out.... More

We were saying in the village for a week and had a Sunday meal. I had Roast Beef which was very good and my partner had Nut Roast. All Very good but more vegetables would have made the meal even better. Very quaint place to eat - a must if you are in the area

Having an unexpected Friday off work we decided to look for a light lunch out not too far from Trowbridge and we decided to try The George at Norton St Philip. This old coaching inn is often quoted to be the longest continuously licensed hostelry in the country. It is a grand building in the centre of a pretty Somerset... More

Was staying in Norton St Phillip and had this place recommended to me by the owner of the B&B. What a lovely place, very old worldly and so many original features. Big open fires and staff that are so friendly and helpful. The food was stunning, I had the chefs pie which was perfect. Can't praise this place enough. If... More

Last Saturday we visited the George for lunch, we usually visit here a couple of times a year and have always really enjoyed our lunch. Not sure if the George has changed hands but whilst the food is as good as ever the service is seriously lacking. First issue was the table that we were given had sticky stuff all... More

We were staying nearby in a cottage on the Frome, and the groundskeeper recommended The George to us. The bar was warm and welcoming, and the bartender kept the fire stoked throughout the evening. After a long day of travel from London, an afternoon in Bath, and visiting Stonehenge, The George was a perfect finish. The menu sported local foods... More

We were out looking to buy some fencing panels, it was about midday so I asked the yard man if there was a nice local pub to have lunch? He pointed us in the direction of the village Norton St Philip where we found 'The George Inn’. Stepping into one of the many entrances we were happily shocked at the... More
