Great food, service could be better

We ate here two nights in a row as we were staying in the inn. The food was excellent and great choices on the menu. The girls serving us were lovely, but the service was unfortunately slow and not very efficient. It wasn't busy, but it took 30 minutes from arrival to get our drinks. And even... read more

You just must visit this fantastic Inn, it's dog friendly and very welcoming. The food was spot on, we all had the fish and chips, puddings two rounds of drinks for five and the bill was £70. History just seeps out of the walls, with a log fire what more do you need.

This is a great place to go as a couple or with a large family (we've done both!). Out the back of the pub is easy access to the play park to keep the kids entertained. The interior is beautiful, a simple must.

We are so happy that The George Inn was recommended to us by our B&B owners (The Old Parsonage House, Beckington), because it ended up being the best meal experience that we had on our 10-day driving tour of England and Wales. The history, the atmosphere, the surrounding village, and the food were all part of its charm. First of... More

The George in Norton St Philip has come under new management with a new chef in the past 8 months. They have improved the running of the whole place. This very much included the food (new chef) to the point that the locals regularly come for an evening meal. The beds are very comfortable & the variety in cooked options... More

My mission was to meet up with a friend for an hour to catch up. Half way point for us was The George, which is a beautiful building and has to be said, has retained much of its characteristic charm. However; as soon as I walked into the bar, I felt a frosty chill in the air from the blonde... More

Ancient is an over-worked word in connection with English pubs, but is entirely appropriate when referring to this building, which was already old when the Duke of Monmouth passed this way in 1685. We have driven past it fairly frequently, had a pub lunch here on a couple of occasions, and decided that the time had come to spend the... More

If you are a visitor to Britain, especially if you're American, visiting Bath, say, you just have to visit the George at Norton St Philip. This pub has been there since before Columbus crossed the ocean blue! The architecture and building methods are fascinating, as is the 600+ years of history. And they do good food (not cheap, but the... More

Spent a weekend close by and ate here two nights running. Very friendly staff, great food and steeped in history. Good value, wholesome food, we had the burgers on one night and the fish pie and duck on the second both excellent. The pub itself is a real treat, you can imagine it in days gone by, nice real fire... More
