Had a meal here a week ago, booked as we didn't know how busy it would be, good job we did as it was very very busy. The atmosphere was delightful and welcoming! Must recommend the Chilli Prawns and the warm chicken and bacon salad. They also have a number of different ales one being Crop Circle. We loved the... More

We visited this pub as a family and not only was the food great but we were treated like we were locals and were well looked after. My wife ordered the plaice and it was the best we had been served at any restaurant. I'd highly recommend this pub for a relaxed dining experience with good quality food.

Pretty village pub with smiling, friendly, helpful service. The menu choice wasn't vast, but what they offered was done very well and everything we had - like salmon fishcakes served with proper real chips followed by warm pecan pie, was homemade and done well. But the kind service was the best thing. I felt as though I was a regular,... More

We took my mother in law out for a meal here in March for Mother's day. It was a real treat. The staff were more than kind and the food was delicious! I love how they have kept everything so traditional. I look forward to going back again real soon.

Popped in here as we had been before and fancied a bite to eat and a drink. Wasn't overly busy and got parked easily but were then met with the most incredibly dismissive rude bar staff. A young man 'served' us and treated us with disdain. He was slamming other peoples drinks down in front of us. We drank our... More

I cannot apologise enough for the treatment that you received. it is completely unacceptable, and very unusual, as our staff are normally praised for their welcome and behaviour, I would like to follow this up internally and ask that you email me with some details such as when you came, and description of the barman if possible. my email is...

If you are in the vicinity of Vernham Dean you simply have to visit this pub. The landlord and all the staff are friendly and welcoming and the pub offers a good range of beer and lager as well as a delightful house red. To add to this the food is good hearty home cooked food. You get plenty on... More

My husband and I and two friends went to the George last night for Dinner. Lovely traditional pub, the atmosphere was great,very cosy with various friendly dogs wandering around. Service was good and the menu although not vast offered plenty of obviously home made dishes, and not ruined by being a 'gastro pub' as so many others have tried to... More
