“"Long wait guys, really long wait"”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

3 of us went to 'George' on Saturday night for coffee and dessert. Meet by a nice young man at the bar who took our order and passed it onto the waitress. Who took a deep breath, rolled her eyes and said ' it's going to be a really long wait guys, really long wait, l have to seat 5 people'. Clearly they don't need customers at this place to make a living! We left and went else where..

“Staff too busy to serve and maybe able to help "in a while"”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

We went to three steps on George for coffee and dessert to be told they were too busy and maybe able to make coffee in a while... Very strange seen as they had only four tables seated, three eating and five people at the bar awaiting a table which was numerous. What a joke!

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Had dinner here as staying at colonial hotel, lovely historic building with log fire, meal was a disappointment, ordered the roast lamb that was on special, meal was cold & no roast vegetables, or mint sauce, although meat was tender & tasted good, partner ordered seafood crepe with veggies got salad instead did say crepe was nice, long wait for meal & to get it cold did not make it value for money

“Find somewhere else”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Went late April with a party of eight. Were sat at a small table upstairs. After ordering the meal, served by a waitress who new next to nothing about the menu, we all waited differing times for our meals to arrive. When we got it 6 out of the 8 meals were cold. The only hot meals were the two pasta meals. We noted that all the food had to come from a kitchen which is at least 50 metres away, not even in the same building. My steak was supposed to have all the gristle removed but that hadn't happened. Meals were far above pub prices and were of a poorer quality than most pubs. We won't be going back.

“Friendly service, Great food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

On arrival we were welcomed by friendly staff and seated straight away even though we didnt have a booking. We were given menu's and ordered drinks which were delivered quickly even with what appeared a full restaurant. With so many choices on the menu it was hard to decide. We started with the oysters and the cheesy garlic bread, these were amazing. My husband wanted to try something different and chose the rabbit together with my choice of quail. We couldn't have had a more enjoyable meal. The only problem that we had was that the meals were so large that we couldnt fit dessert. We decided to finish our meal with a coffee beside the logfire. Not the first time we have dined here and we look forward to our next.
