A VERY GOOD GASTRO PUB (WITH ROOMS) NEAR BRISTOL AIRPORT

Having dropped my son and his girlfriend at Bristol Airport, we came across the George almost by accident, on our return to South Wales. The pub entry is at the back, so you walk through a large beer garden which has modern tables/chairs and is quite safe for families on sunny summer days... read more

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.

We found this pub by a lucky accident when returning from Bristol airport. The pub has a dedicated dining area, plus a large bar. The staff were a real credit to the pub and all were very helpful. As an active CAMRA member I am always interested in the beer, and certainly the ones I tasted were excellent. I had... More

I recently went for a sunday roast at The Goarge with my partner and was upset with the service from the staff, the long wait for out food and the quality of the meal. We waited 35 minutes for our main course to come out and for what it was was a disappointment. The table next to us who arrived... More

We all really enjoyed our meals and the seats were really comfortable and the surroundings were very pleasant. Good idea to go earlier in the evening if you don't want a wait for your meals. Nice friendly staff. We would go back again.

The George is a lovely pub / restaurant with a great atmosphere. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, and service at the tables is very good. We booked for a Saturday evening. On arrival, the restaurant was nearly full and a large group had also arrived. When we sat at our... More

Lovely setting for this pub - you enter around the back - walking through a nice contemporary landscaped garden. The atmosphere is very relaxed and welcoming. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly also. As the pub wasn't too busy we didn't have too long to wait for our lunch order about 10-15 mins. Was too busy taking in the... More
