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 visited the garden room in a large group. After much persuasion we were able to secure a reservation here which is not normally allowed. Very sympathetic staff. Food excellent and seasonal. Some of the starter portions very big (pate) so would serve two. Steaks all cooked correctly to order and were melt in the mouth tender. Wine was excellent... More

the George Hotel Restaurant has a good selection on the menu. The food is well prepared and the staff very attentive, friendly and professional. I would not suggest you try for all 3 courses unless you have a gargantuan appetite as the courses are more than generous. Maybe an idea would be to share the 3 courses as what we... More

We enjoyed both dinner and breakfast in the hotel and both were excellent. Service is great, the food is very good and always served fresh. Choice of two restaurants, depending on the occasion.

We arrived, a soaking wet group of 8 people and 3 dogs. Despite our feral appearance they could not have been more welcoming. When we first went in to find out if they were dog friendly they even offered us an umbrella! They were incredibly busy, and had a wedding party but they still went out of their way to... More

We were in a hurry but lovely waitress said no problem. Sat outside in the courtyard. Great atmosphere and lunch was terrific. Can't wait to stay at the heavily recommended hotel.

Excellent location with a table outside in the courtyard a really great place to eat dinner. Really good starters and prawns were especially good. The rabbit and cod main courses were really excellent. However the fillet steak was very disappointing on the small side and not the best quality meat. The wine was good and the overall meal including deserts... More

Thank you for your kind review. Please accept my apologies regarding the steak- we have used the same butcher for over thirty years and it is the best meat you can buy – so I will look into this with the supplier. I was pleased to read that the other dishes were excellent. Many thanks. More
