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 called in for some drinks while in stamford. The decor was pleasant enough if a little dated. The terrace area outside was lovely mind you. We ordered three cocktails, an Aperol Spritz, Espresso Martini & a Dry Vodka Martini from who we presume was the bar manager. The drinks were brought over to our table by the same lady.... More

Experienced horrendous food poisoning and vomiting, following a meal with a big group at The George. I ate Scallops as a starter which inevitably caused the illness, but the Manager would accept zero responsibility. I recognise any establishment could open themselves to tenuous claims without absolute proof, but it was extremely disappointing after e-mail exchanges the Manager wouldn't even refund... More

There is no doubt that the George is an impressive up market establishment offering top quality services and facilities but unfortunately our recent experience was somewhat lacking. When four of us called in for a mid morning coffee we sat outside in the lovely courtyard and waited for the coffee we had ordered inside - it didn't come - so... More

I am very sorry to read of your poor experience when arriving for morning coffee. As you will see from previous reviews this is most unusual and not our standard. I do hope you decide to pay us a return visit. More

We arrived in Stamford with the intention of going in The George. Was not disappointed with the place as this is full of history and I joyed a very nice real Ale and the staff were very attentive. Served nibbles / olives whilst we drank. Very nice attention to detail.

I visited over a year ago and haven't been back since. Staff were abrupt, even rude, including a waitress marching up to us with a furious expression once we'd been seated (with customers in tow) to ask why we were sitting there after we had been seated by her colleague. Obviously their mistake and handled extremely unprofessionally! We also had... More

The sun was poking through and we were free on the Friday afternoon. My youngest daughter had bought us an Afternoon Tea voucher for Christmas and we decided to make use of it. In honesty, expectations were not high, but we were very pleasantly surprised. The sandwiches, cakes, scones and cream were very good. The highlight though was how 'nice'... More

Stayed and dined here a number of times. I took my mother this week for lunch in the oak panelled dining room. We both enjoyed the beef carved at the table - I had this a month ago on a Sunday and it was definately better this time. Not only was the beef more tender but we got more vegetables... More
