Booked through Booking.com. On the web site the place is open 1200 to 1100 pm. Arrived at 1700, place was closed??? Apparently you need to push a bell to gain access, Info on web site would be good. 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

I've eaten here before, many years ago and I'm pleased to say it's back to how it was back then. It would be difficult not to find something on the menu or the accompanying specials board. We had the liver which was cooked beautifully in a really rich gravy. There was too much on the plate so you'll need a... More

We ate here this evening and chose from the specials board. The food was excellent. I asked for a salad with my plaice instead of vegetables and received a great salad selection to go with the large beautifully cooked plaice fillet. My husband had the lamb chops with redcurrant orange and port sauce and loved it . There were three... More
