“Great sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Eleven of us descended on The George one rainy Saturday in March and were given a warm welcome. A number of tables were quickly put together for us and food, beer and wine ordered. Most had sandwiches which looked well filled and tasty, I had the fish pie which was lovely and several sea food salads were consumed. No negative comments about any of the food (p.s great chips). Adnams Broadside served amongst several real ales. Parking available behind the hotel.

“Don't be deceived by appearances! Excellent food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

The George doesn't look much from the outside, and once through the doors still looks like your average pub. However, the quality of the food is excellent for the prices - indeed better than other more lauded establishments locally. The atmosphere and service is friendly and casual, yet attentive.
The pigeon breast starter was excellent, as were the stuffed mushrooms. The topside of beef casserole was hearty, tasty and served with local vegetables bursting with flavour. The chocolate tart was smooth and delicious. The bill proved that dining at The George represents great value for money for this high standard of cooking.

“Lovely meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Pub on corner, does bed and breakfasts. Wouldn't drink too much though, as the corner door, opens right out onto the corner into the road !
Nice meals. Clean toilets. Beer garden across the road, mind boggling really when it's busy - staff carrying bar meals across the road !
