Great fod, front of house less so

Felt it was time to return and see if the George was back on top. Hmmmm. First impressions not good. Walked in, got a drink at the bar and we were left alone for 20 minutes. Was the place busy ? No. Were staff about, yes, but not that interested in their customers. Eventually menu arrived and... read more

took my partner and mum for sunday lunch having had good experiences before.Decided to not opt for traditional sunday lunch but the salmon fish cakes (which were three small balls) and tempura haddock and chunky chips with pea puree. The main was 10/10 and I am not easily pleased. It was delicious. My mum and partners lunches were equeally well... More

Recently had lunch at The George, Buckden. There were 10 of us so the service was going to be a bit of a challenge for the staff. They were very attentive the food was superb, the wine delicious. We had a long table in the Orangery which I would thoroughly recomend. Looking forward to our next visit.

The George is all that is quintessentially British. Takes me back to a time when service and quality were the norm. The afternoon tea with cream and scones and ' high-tea' sandwiches was delightful. Age is irrelevant, I defy anyone not to be impressed by the ambience, the decor and the friendly attentive staff. Whether you want to read the... More

We've lived in Buckden for a year and half. Thus we have eaten at the George several times as a special quick treat to ourselves. This past weekend was the best so far!!! The new service staff is much better and much more attentive to the guests. My wife and I felt like a king and queen and enjoyed 5... More

Excellent food with attentive service. Only negative we could come up with is there is no bitter on tap behind the bar. Will certainly visit again.

Really good food at marginally expensive prices. Friends also tell me it is a pretty nice place to stay too.

decided to go for lunch here again after not being for a few years. Wasn't disappointed. Excellent well mannered well presented staff and a clean well presented classic contemporary restaurant and bar. Ordered smoked mackerel pate which I asked for a side order of toast with and my partner ordered crayfish. Both had turkey with traditional sides although the sides... More

Oh for a decent Lithuanian! Where do your staff learn to address besuited diners as 'guys' and 'gents'? Come on, if you aspire to be a decent restaurant, patronising and familiar terms with diners doesn't work. And one question whether it's all right is enough, two in two minutes is an intrusion.
