Description: The George is located on the Harbour in the heart of West Bay, Dorset. This striking Georgian building stands proudly on the harbourside of this popular fishing village, made famous by being the backdrop to the recent BBC Tv series "Broadchurch".The hotel has recently been taken over (01/10/2013) by Chris and Kim and they are busy welcoming guests new and old to The George. The hotel is open all day and serves fresh locally sourced home cooked from the restaurant, including daily specials using fish sourced from the fishing boats in the harbour. The bar serves a good selection of wines and exceptional real ales from Palmers Brewery, located a mile away in Bridport.There is plenty to do in the area, with several of breathtaking coastal walks and leisurely strolls along the beach front.There are several charter boats waiting to take keen sea fishing visitors, or a Rib taxi that will take you to nearby Lyme Regis and return a couple of hours later. Whether you are looking for a adrenalin packed weekend, or simply a relaxing break by the beautiful harbour, The George Hotel is the place to stay. Chris and Kim look forward to welcoming you to The George soon.

“Great Food and friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

Visited here recently and was very pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome, friendly service and excellent food. The Palmers ale was on offer but alas as driver I declined! (Its my wife's turn to drive next time!) I chose the whole place - it was well presented and was delicious. Others had the Fish & Chips with minted mushy peas. They were very impressed with the fact that clearly all food had been freshly cooked and not "kept warm" it was really hot, well presented and a large portion size as well. Will visit again and let you know about the Palmers beer!
Recommended for a pleasant meal in a pretty location by the West Bay harbour.
Limited free parking is available at the side of The George, however a pay and display is just in front of the pub.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Went in there just on the off chance as I had heard it had new owners. The food was exceptional and a good number of people in for a Wednesday night. Staff were great so having just moved to the area I will definitely be back. Really good

“Excellent pub grub.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

This pub is now under new management and Chris and Kim have done a wonderful job in bringing back great fresh, homemade food, sensibly priced drinks and a lovely atmosphere in which to enjoy it. There is occasional Saturday evening entertainment and, in addition to the regular menu, there are themed food nights on each day of the week, plus great lunch deals for the over 60s which I understand is proving popular. We have eaten there twice so far and on both occasions ate from the regular menu. The burgers are great, my rump steak was cooked to perfection and I loved the little chip fryer my chips came in. Much thought has been given to presentation and the portions are generous and well cooked. We ate in the front bars and next time hope to try the restaurant when we have friends visiting. Will definitely be eating there again.
