Love this pub... really love this pub. The building is an old coaching inn and the main bar just as you might expect. Lovely atmosphere, fragrant log fires, great choice of beer and cider. The restaurant is indeed shabby chic and rather endearing, with lovely floorboards and old mirrors on the walls. One of the evenings we went, everything in there was candlelit and it was a magical experience.
As for the food... I have eaten there half a dozen times now and each meal has been sublime. Lovely fresh seafood, mouthwatering steaks, great burgers. Portion size is good, not for you if you want mountains of ready-made chips (the chips are home-made and pretty special), but certainly enough food to satisfy my large and hungry, rugby-playing husband.
The puds are extra special. Delicious!
I've seen the George described as second choice to the Swan - not for me. The Swan tends to attract the 'Audi Convertible Set' and is always over-crowded and over-priced. The atmosphere isn't a patch on the lovely George. As a bonus, I've never been treated with anything less than courtesy and efficiency by Gordon and his staff. I really want to highly recommend this wonderful inn.
