“Great food and place but poor service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

First visit to the George was good in every way. Second visit still had great food,wine and atmosphere but it took ages to get a drink and each course took for ever. Front of house manager was not there this time. Hopefully this was a temporary thing as she was super efficient on the first visit and made sure everyone was served promptly

Thanks for kind words.
We have been without full front of house management presence for a period but are pleased to say this has now been rectified.

Great little find, friendly staff, good food and child friendly, had to wait a while for our meals but well worth waiting for. We will return

“Fabulous Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

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.

“Beers good ...food overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We stopped here for lunch on our way back from a morning out in nearby Cheddar, the establishment is pleasant and quirky, the menu looked appealing.
We ordered our food at the bar, Roast beef for my husband (£16 a serving) and roast stuffed pork loin (£14 a serving) for myself, we took our drinks out to the rear beer garden and waited....and waited...and waited. Once the food arrived, without cutlery to eat it which was rectified, it appeared dry and conjealed. I think this was due to the fact it possibly had been left waiting under a heat lamp for to long and no way was the two small slices of meat on my husbands plate what you would describe as rare (as it had stated on the menu) the portions were not huge either (I literally had two slices of meat a small portion of both mustard mash and braised leeks) but we were both starving so beggars couldn't be choosers! To be honest this is possibly the worse meal out I have had in years, even a main course at a Fayre and Squaure/Whitbread pub are of a higher quality and very much cheaper. My husband told them on departing that their beer is good but we were not impressed by the food, so I'd recomend this pub for a drink but would never eat here again.
