arrived 8.30pm for unreserved meal for 2 on a Thursday. Warm welcome - all the staff seemed to really enjoy their work and provided prompt and smiling service, The desserts (bannoffee ice-cream and toffee and date cake) were especially scrumptious. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed a lazy Sunday lunch here with the family, bit chilly for the beer garden but that looked very appealing as well.

I was delighted to make the trip this Easter Sunday with my friends to the George. The staff, atmosphere and food were all perfect for a relaxing jaunt into the countryside. If you're looking for a place to unwind and enjoy traditional English food, the George is for you.
