Relaxing

The George has a lovely outside seating area and several different seating areas inside. The atmosphere is relaxed, staff are very friendly and helpful. Only had a snack but it was very good, and the menu looked interesting.

We had dinner out following a harrowing day. The friendly staff and little touches (smarties with my coffee) were really appreciated. Even when a meal was returned at no fault of the chef, the alternative was brought out swiftly. My only comment, as with many places, that 'healthy' options for diabetics and those on a diet are short on choices.... More

I love this little pub! The interior is modern yet traditional and the staff are always so friendly. The food is excellent, and worth paying sliightly more than standard pub prices for quality food.

Could not find a single flaw apart from one very lazy, young, blonde waitress. Food came quickly and was very good, the outside area there was also very good.

For great food, splendid wines, engaging staff and a lovely atmosphere, The George ticks all boxes and if you decide that you don't want to go home, you can stay in one of the George" themed rooms above the restaurant. There's real attention to detail throughout the place whether its the décor, the cleanliness or the waiting staff and that... More

This pub/restaurant had very friendly staff and had a very pleasant environment. I was very disappointed by my 'George Hero' burger at £11.95 it came with the smallest portion of chips I have ever seen. The burger itself was substantial in size though average in flavour. This was soured though by the lack of salad and the mini portion of... More

An excellent and varied menu which is updated regularly but you are always sure to find something to suit your taste. Dietary needs are catered for and the staff are always very helpful in recommending alternatives should your choice not be suitable.
