Great choice of food and at a good price, would def go back as the roast is lovely. Only thing I'd mention is the toilets are not very clean. But apart from that a nice place to go and dog friendly, so that's a plus Lesley Yacomine

Unusually disappointing for both food and service. Family meal , Seated in rear bar. Both beef and lamb was very tough, lukewarm gravy. Had to ask for plates to be cleared, Had to ask for 'Sweet menus's, Had to ask at the bar for staff member to take our sweet orders. Really disappointed after many visits here. £117 later..Not impressed... More

A warm and friendly welcome for our party of six. Extensive menu and when the food arrived we were not disappointed. All cooked to perfection and the whole place was immaculate. The hosts were very attentive and friendly and we will certainly be revisiting again in the very near future.

My partner and I ordered the steak, it was so fabulous neither of us have spoken for the last 2 hours. We will definitely be returning, can't fault anything about this place. The food and staff are a cut above the rest. 10/10

One of the best sunday lunches I've had at £10 it is not the cheapest but the quality and quantity of food was excellent. Would certainly return.

We pre booked for Sunday dinner, as usual the atmosphere and food was great but the Sunday lunch price for a main course has gone up to £10 per head which I think is a bit steep. That said the food was delicious, everyone said their meat (pork, beef, lamb) was fantastic and the veggies and puds were awesome. Service... More

Enjoyed a dinner with old workmates. Service was excellent with quick and friendly responses. Even delivered drinks to the table. Two menus with a list of specials two for £15. Normally these are smaller portions but not so at the George. My friend ordered the mix grill and we were amazed he finished this huge plate and even ordered rhubarb... More
