I have eaten here twice recently and had the set lunchtime menu. Both times I felt the food had been specially cooked for us, nothing heated up or cooked ahead. Lovely meals and good service. Menu choices for £11 two courses included whitebait, pigeon breasts, risotto which were all very nicely presented and flavoursome. Good to have nice food in...

This is a super place to stay. The bedroom I was in was nicely updated but still had charm, due to slightly wonky walls and floors, but clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. The pub is lovely. 4 real ales and the food is out of this world. Beautifully prepared and presented, it is a joy to both behold and eat....

Had an evening event and stayed over. Really enjoyed the whole experience and would definitely recommend this one. Breakfast was hot and delicious. Plenty to see and do locally and this is situated right in the middle of everything

The chicken wing starter was really tasty. Steaks delicious. Hake...

I stayed in the George for 3 nights at the end of August 2016. I couldn't fault the accommodation. However, similarly to a few posters on this site, I found that the kitchen seemed to close v early despite demand for food and table availability in the restaurant. It was disappointing to be refused food early ( ish- it was...

We chose to celebrate new years eve at the George, and had a great night! The food was out a bit later than planned but it was worth waiting for. Lovely hog roast and buffet with plenty to go round. The band were absolutely great and got everyone dancing! The only issue was a group of people that came in...
