Fantastic service, great food. The cow pie is amazing! Quite old fashioned in décor/appearance but perfectly lovely. Well frequented by regulars - a good sign!

The food at the George is always great. Recommend booking as the restaurant is always busy. A bit noisy on this occasion but our meals were lovely.

This was our 2nd visit to The George, my husband has been looking forward to the cow pie again for a year and was not disappointed once again. He has a good appetite but half a pie is more than enough for him. Choice on the menu was good and service was good and staff attentive.
