Description: A magnificent oak-panelled space is the fine dining setting at The George Hotel of Stamford, one of England's greatest coaching inns. A mix of regular locals and hotel guests can always be found relaxing at bare oak tables beneath an eye-catching hand-painted ceiling. In summer, or on mild nights, they like to sit outside under the heated canopy in the ivy-clad courtyard. Open for grand lunches and dinner, the George Hotel Restaurant serves traditional yet imaginative English dishes, specialising in seafood. Lighter daytime dishes such as Dover sole are superceeded at night with heartier meals such as rack of lamb with fresh herbs and redcurrant jelly, and roast English beef carved at the table on a silver trolley. Accompanied by traditional trimmings, of course.

We had afternoon tea for 4 people at The George Hotel. If you go early enough you may be lucky to get a seat in the cosy room with the fireplace. This room is more relaxed. We were in the next room along, which is very pleasant, but seems more formal. We asked for afternoon tea for 3 people and... More

Enjoyed a wonderful wedding reception at The George. The entire hotel was decorated beautifully for Christmas. The dinner at the reception was amazing. The staff were friendly and hard working. My husband and I had lunch at The George Hotel the next day. It was pricey but being in that beautiful hotel and learning its history is totally worth the... More

I should say straight away that we were being treated to a pre Christmas dinner so no worries there! The evening started off in the cocktail bar where champagne and nibbles appeared while the menu was studied - our hostess here was very knowledgable and helpful and after a second glass we were escorted to the Oak Room where we...

It is a great venue, steeped in tradition and history. Nothing beats sitting out in the coaching courtyard of a summer's lunchtime or evening. However, it is expensive and I always feel the food is in a bit of a time warp. Service is good but you pay for the privilege. There is always a sense of grand occasion when... More

I agree there is nowhere quite as lovely to wine and dine than the George courtyard during the summer months. We change our menus with each season and I feel we offer the best produce with excellent service to justify the prices. Do try our Light Lunch Menu which is exeptional value, served in our Oak panelled restaurant Monday to... More

Even on New Year's Day, with all the restaurant rooms packed,we received a warm welcome and excellent service. The A La Carte lunch was perfectly cooked and presented in style.The hotel always looks stunning at this time of year when fully decorated, particularly the main oak-panelled dining room. A real treat.

The George is a firm favourite within the area for lots of reasons. It offers a traditional setting with varied dining options (Garden Lounge is more informal, and the Restaurant is very opulent and is a lovely experience for special occasions). We had our wedding here 3 years ago, and come on a regular basis, its a perfect place to... More

Seven of us had arranged to meet for lunch two days before xmas. We had expected it to be busy- which it was. However we were seated relatively quickly in the garden room. and our drinks arrived quite quickly. However what we werent expecting was the more than an hour wait to get our meals!!

Thank you for your review. Yes it is a very busy time of the year and our customers do start to queue to ensure that they have a table- we don't organise this! This results in over 90 people sitting down in the garden room at once and as we cook everything freshly to order there is obviously, unfortunately, a... More
