Great boozer

We went in the pub for a drink, and the ale selection is quite good. The carvery was recommended so we decided to try it, we were not disappointed as it was very good, and would recommend!

Basic menu but the pies were a nice change from usual fair, quite a dark atmosphere with all the wood and only a few tables. This looks like a summer pub as there was a large courtyard with lots of sitting area and it seemed more like a locals pub as opposed to a good eating place. It was dog... More

We visited the pub on Easter Monday and wanted to eat but when we went in to the bar the manager ( I think) told us the kitchen had just closed. He then said if we could place our order quickly he would ask the chef if he would stay on and fulfil our order. The food was lovely and... More

If you are looking for a quiet night with a cosy drink this is not for you. Went on a Saturday night and the place was buzzing and packed with a mix of locals and visitors like myself. This is how I remember pubs used to be standing room only, loud conversations and tons of atmosphere. Food was good pub... More

Called in on a Thursday night but food service had finished at 9.30 but Dan & Sinead helped us find a restaurant that was still open. With such lovely helpful staff, we decided to go back on Saturday for dinner and wasn't disappointed. I had a pint of Piddle (yep that's what its called lol) which they brew themselves. Nice...

Just took my 2 daughters out for an early dinner, and as Pizza Express across the rd was busy, ended up in this olde pub. Great traditional place. However the meal took forever to come, had to go up twice, once when we had been waiting 40mins for a starter sharing platter, which we reassured would be straight out- 10... More

Not usually one for a quiet drink with friends in Christchurch, but we were presently surprised by The George! Initially, the plan was just supposed to be a couple of drinks, but when we caught glimpse of the food menu, we couldn't resist. They had a deal on a meal and a dessert at the time so we quickly ordered... More

I have been here 3 times this year as this is where our office celebrates staff birthdays. Service is shocking, there are always problems with the order when it arrives. Order an item only to be told it is off the menu (when the food arrives) Food is very expensive for what is served. And when I found out that... More

We popped in here for dinner on a Friday night, it was about 8:30pm so not all the food on the menu was available. However the steak and ale pie that we ordered was superb, pastry was buttery and crisp, meat was in big chunks and there was lashings of gravy. Big, chunky chips were very nice too. There were...
