“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Thank you so much for some lovely food during our visit at the weekend. Our Belgian visitors enjoyed it as well and also the lovely old english pub atmosphere.
A little confused about the accommodation, we were told it was full but we were the only people having breakfast at 8am the next day, think any double room would have been available not just the family room?

Father's 80th Birthday with six guests. Friendly, helpful staff serving generous portions of lovely fresh food. Really couldn't fault it, other than service was a bit slow which didn't matter on this occasion as we were there for a long chat anyway. When the bill arrived we were very pleasantly surprised with the good value we had received. Definitely a place we shall return.

Great lunch break yesterday on a round trip from London to Falmouth and back. Nice choices, good food served with a smile. Only fault? One of the dominoes was missing. But, I still beat my undergraduate son. Twice. We'll be back - for food as well as pub games.

Visited the George during January for lunch. Bar Lady very friendly and helpful, food mediocre; Fish and Chips, soggy batter and grey coloured fish, no at all pleasant, chips ok. However, on paying there was a lady, who I presume was the owner/manager who was, in a loud vice bemoaning the house-keeping staff to other members of staff, not what I or other wanted or needed to hear, most unprofessional. Will not return.

Just come back from a 2 night stay. I would agree with most of what Donnytone has said, bags of charm, character and qualities such as real oak beams and ceilings that aren't even, the odd window that doesn't sit exactly straight. Doors that you have to bend down to go through and a magical staircase and landing that is uneven and creaks like a good old floor should. Bedrooms were very clean and of an acceptable standard for the price. We ate both nights in the restaurant and the food was excellent. Breakfast was also excellent, good choice and plenty of it. Staff we came into contact with were helpful and cheerfull, never did meet the owners even though we had an issue with the room. They moved us no questions asked but we were a little surprised the owners offered no explanation and never make themselves known to us. But this small hitch would not stop us coming here again it's a lovely building and I would recommend it to any one.

Stopped off and had the soup of the day: parsnip and apple. It came with a really really good hand baked (I guess) roll. The service was perfect - interested but not too pushy. Location is ideal, just off the A303. Well recommended.

Just got back from a two night stay here. My wife and I, daughter and son in law decided to stay here so we could spend a full day at Longleat . What can I say that already hasn't been said. The inn hasn't got massive bedrooms or 33" Sky tv's , gymnasium or sauna, it hasn't even got a disco ! BUT it's a 500+ year old inn with Royal links to history. What it has got, is bags of charm, character and qualities such as real oak beams and ceilings that aren't even, the odd window that doesn't sit exactly straight. Doors that you have to bend down to go through and a magical staircase and landing that is uneven and creaks like a good old floor should. The inn is very clean and well decorated. Downstairs the breakfast room is excellent and the bar area with its slate floors and massive fireplace is more than welcoming. The rooms are big enough with very nice up to date en suites. The breakfasts and evening meals are real winners and lots of locally brewed ales and ciders. The staff are more than very nice and will serve you well. For a short or long stay I ask you, what more can you ask for?
