Dear SandraJane Thank you for leaving us such a lovely review, we are absolutely delighted you enjoyed your visit. We think perhaps judging by the review though that you might have given us one star (which means terrible) for your visit in error? We look forward to welcoming you again to the George, Kind Regards, Diane and Stewart More

We stayed at the George inn whilst attending a friends wedding at a local venue.The rooms were very comfortable and we had a warm welcome from the owner, who offered us a lift to the wedding venue when we couldn't get a taxi. Breakfast was delicious and just what we needed after a heavy night. Would recommend, great value for... More

Room was really nice, clean and with all the things you need, soap, towels,mending kit,shampoo, shower gel. The bar did good real... More

We have had nothing but good praises for the lovely wedding reception held for our daughter at the George. The food was throughly enjoyed by all and was served hot even though there were 44 of us. Plenty to eat and the beef was so tender and cooked to perfection. Diane and Stewart were very accommodating and helped us with... More

We stayed at The George at Donyatt for one night with some friends whilst we attended a wedding nearby. We called at the last minute to request an early check in which they managed to do for us with no fuss and from the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. Rooms are nice and clean and there is... More

Great find. Quality food. Fresh and cooked to a very high standard. Its a shame I cant get this standard in Southampton. All of the family agreed it was the best meal they had eaten in a pub for a long while. Maybe it is because the pubs in Somerset are not serving food all day.

We wanted a local B&B while overseeing our new house build as we live some 2 hours away. Our twin room was clean with en-suite with bath and shower. The shower was much better than it looked due to good water pressure. There was a good hairdryer and plenty of towels. Tea and coffee facilities were provided and we were... More

The George does what is says on the tin. Clean double room, fresh laundry and a coffee. Room was adequately proportioned and we were made to feel welcome. The food was beyond expectations. The seafood platter I had was wonderful as was the lamb my wife had. Full English in the morning was excellent too and enabled us to get... More

We dropped in for lunch and though there wasnt much atmosphere it will be different in the evenings, I'm sure. Food was pretty good without being exciting. Decent pub food at a fair price, and big helpings too.

Luckily we chose this pub for a few days away. We had a very warm welcome and given a choice of rooms, all of which were spacious, comfortable, en suites and all the facilities we needed. We ate here both nights and all the food was delicious, plentiful and beautifully cooked. The icing on the cake was the fantastic atmosphere.... More
