Food and service was excellent until we finished our main course and then we felt 'invisible' as no-one asked us about a dessert even when clearing at the next table. We left without any addition order. Mentioned this to staff.

It's been a little while since our last visit to the George, this was due to a bad experience on a previous visit. Having said that we dined out with our friends, and all four of us had an excellent meal, the men settling for the famous "Cow Pie", half portion of course and my friend had the steak, where... More

We had a table booked for 1730 and turned up slightly early (1715) and when we mentioned we had a booking the waiter walked towards us ushering us back to the bar saying well I'll see you at 1730 then. Thought it seemed a bit abrupt and didn't detect any humour in his voice. Maybe a "I'm sorry the restaurant... More

Come here with a friend for dinner, I had the fish pie and my friend had the stir fry. The staff seemed overwhelmed with the amount of people in the restaurant and it was only half full! Waited quite a while for our drinks and food to be ordered. It's a shame as they weren't short staffed either! The food... More

My husband and I went to the George on the first night of our anniversary weekend away to Keswick. We had a look at a few other pubs in the area but the menu looked good for this one, quite diverse for a pub, but with the right mix of 'traditional' pub food and more adventurous dishes. We had a...
