Set in a rural part of the Kent, but not far from the M2, the George Inn is a great place to have a Sunday lunch. From a choice which included roast beef, pork, salmon and a veggie dish we chose chicken breast. This was accompanied by Yorkshire pudding, cauliflower, broccoli, peas, carrots, shredded cabbage, roast potatoes and gravy. I've... More

Beautiful pub, full of character, genuinely friendly, efficient staff. Sunday roast = top marks, the week menu could do with a few more offerings, especially for non meat eaters. Generous portions, reasonably priced.

The garden was beautiful and after glancing at the menu decided... More

We had an evening meal here, nothing special, just food with a few drinks. The restaurant was sadly closed when we arrived but we were seated at a huge table suitable for 8. We were able to fully appreciate the reason for the closure as a local guitar group were meeting there. The music was a great addition and it... More
