I know some people don't rave about Sunday lunch, but you would be amazed how many places muck it up. Not so the G&D! Probably the best ever Sunday lunch. Generous portions, well cooked meats, vegetables done just right and a good selection of starters and puds (if you can manage them!) . There are plenty of staff and the... More

I came here because trip advisor recommended it, word of warning it is busy so it worth ringing up for a table. I had lamb Sunday dinner with mint sauce, and my friend had noodles worth every Pennie, couldn't fault the service and they allow dogs. :) recommended

Loved the black pudding, bacon and peppercorn sauce. Adored the selection of real ales, marveled at the Sea Bass and had to help my partner with her massive scampi and chips. An excellently run pub with truly friendly people and great service. Recommended.

This place is simply the best! The food is top quality, cooked from fresh and always impressive to look at, and of course super delicious :-) It gets busy at times so give them a call and reserve a table. The staff are always welcoming and will do anything to ensure you leave wanting to come back. Go give it... More

I have been to the george many times and last night there was live music, the two barmen were lively and made mine and my wives night the best night weve had in a long time!! Hats off to them for having a lively attitude and good laugh with the paying customers!

Took our family to this restaurant to celebrate our Ruby Wedding , everything was lovely. The staff were friendly and efficient and catered to all our needs. The food was cooked beautifully and piping hot, we all had clean plates. The price for home cooked food was very reasonable we will be back.

Visited bank holiday and the food and service was excellent. Plates were full of homemade food, price reasonable for the ample serving that we got. Will be back.

The food was good and plenty on all our plates. Unfortunately we were seated in the bar near the exit to the kitchen, which was not exactly perfect for a birthday party, especially having two children in the group. The staff were pleasant and did close the outer door when we said it was cold. When we booked we were... More
