We first ate here several weeks ago and had a wonderful Sunday lunch. They had just published the Christmas menus, and we booked a table fo 16 for the garden room ( Conservatory). The food was first class, but what made it all the more enjoyable was the attentive Jenny who worked very hard at our table. I will not... More

Arrived for a pre-wedding night. Our party was initially 12, but ended up being double that. The staff was amazing and accommodated and handled the situation without effort. We had a fantastic evening. Rooms lovely, food very good. Congratulations to all the people who work to keep their guests happy!

The George is a few minutes' drive from my office and I've just returned from a quick lunch there. The staff were incredibly attentive, good-humoured and efficient, they're obviously well trained and thoroughly deserved the heavy tip. Great new menu on offer - particularly the Steak Burger and Moules Frites which we devoured in no time at all. Will definitely... More

Book a table, you wont be disappointed! The George has become a regular favorite for business and pleasure over the last two years. The Staff are always welcoming and fabulously attentive to everyone, always smiling and nothing is too much trouble. Great new menu, beautiful presentation, and served by professional staff who have been trained, not school leavers that haven’t!... More

Stopped st 2pm on a wet midweek day. Place was warm and welcoming and still pleasantly busy but not crowded. I could see how it could be a different story at the weekend. Service was friendly and efficient and food well prepared and presented. We had space to sit and chat and go over notes from a busy morning. Would... More

Three chaps turn up at 10:00 am hungry and looking for breakfast - no problem at all at the George Backwell. The staff were very friendly and immediately arranged a table for us. Fruit juice, lovely coffee and a wonderful cooked breakfast were provided. Unfortunately, it was still raining when we left !

Had lunch here and the food was Ok. Had bread to start which was Ok but not particularly tasty. Had rainbow trout which was nicely done but plain and had mashed potatoe with olives which was OK but very hot as probably microwaved. Would I go back - yes if local but wouldn't go out of my way.

Went to the George as we were notified of "Fish Friday" by email. Shown as dishes from £5.95. This is highly misleading as there is just 1 meal at £5.95 meal and this is merely a starter dish. All other meals are £10.95 and above. As for the food we did receive, I am afraid that we were not impressed.... More

A recent revamp of the interior has added extra room and dining tables. The menu has a good range from good quality burgers to more exotic sharing/grazing platters. The bar stocks good quality local/regional beers and a good stock of bottled beers from around the world. It's our "go-to" meeting, drinking and dining spot. Can be packed at busy times,... More
