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.

A very prestigious Hotel full of history and charm. The restaurant is one of the few that still has a dress code. The service is silver and the bill was golden. The food was disappointing. We tried the mixed starter platter which had vey small portions of dishes that tasted predominantly of either smoke or batter. The main was the... More

The George has a charm all of its own. The food, the ambience and the service combined to make our time there a real pleasure.

First class service in a first class restaurant with first class food - the desserts were out of this world! We started with drinks in the (beautiful) garden and were asked what we would like - the menu was excellent, as was the meal!

Must visit whilst in Stamford. The garden restaurant is lovely. Great service and the food is good. I also often just go for a bogged in the main lounge or a great place to sit outside in Summer.

My family had a superlative Sunday meal and enjoyed the ambience and feeling of tradition of the hotel. We returned for coffee on a Saturday morning and the place was buzzing - obviously where to see and be seen!

I have had the pleasure of dining at the George many times over the last 30 years and it is as good now as it has ever been. Personally I prefer the ambiance and informality of Garden Room to the Oak Panelled room which is a little too much of a gentleman's club atmosphere for me. There are so many... More

Fifteen years ago The George was the place to stay, eat and drink. These days it is hit and miss. Sometimes it can be excellent, others at its best average. They seem to care more about the tourists and not the locals. Tradition and reputation does not guarantee perfection and it shows in the varied quality of food and service.
