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.

Good food at above average prices; having said that, the prices are not out of whack with what one would expect to pay

A splendid meal in very traditional but relaxing surroundings. The food really is top quality and the service faultless. A great evening out for a special occasion. For a more relaxed evening, with less formality, the Garden Restaurant is just as good.

I occasionally eat here as a treat. The Christmas meal was second to none, the decorations were worth going there for and the service is very professional. In the summer you can eat in the courtyard. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

A restaurant or hotel doesn't hold onto its reputation for years without good reason and the restaurant at The George is one that thoroughly deserves all the praise heaped on it. We've had a few visits there including overnight stays, our wedding reception and special occasion meals, and whatever the reason for a visit you are always assured the very... More

Pleasant old fashioned dinning room, welcoming staff. Apart from a few nods to modern tastes, the menu was good old fashioned fare. A good selection. The style of service, was very old fashioned, its a matter of taste whether that appeals. A selection of breads were offered and then sliced from a trolley. No seconds were offered and our side...
