The George at Blackwell is very cosy and warm atmosphere. They have a lovely garden where you can either have a meal or a drink. We enjoy stoping there from time to time and have a glass of Somerset cider!

Wanted to meet friends here for lunch . I knew that I could rely on the food choice. Yet again I wasn't disappointed. The garden was full of sunshine and many people sat enjoying this with a range of age groups. We decided to eat in the Garden Sun Lougne. Enjoying the sunshine with all the open windows . Very...

We went to the George for a meal with my son and daughter-in-law whilst they had a brief stopover between flights in and out of Bristol Airport. The pub is less than 15 minutes from the airport and fairly straightforward to get to (although the satnav took us along some very narrow roads). We got there about 12:30 on a... More

We have eaten here several times over the last few years. It has always been good. It is a comfortable pub with restaurant, and the same food is available 'at the bar'. Currently the menu contains the normal kind of pub fare, but in addition some exciting and interesting dishes. We were especially taken by the "3 dish sharing starters".... More

Our walking group of 14 people had booked for lunch. We were seated altogether in an almost private room at the rear of the pub overlooking the courtyard area. You expect a little wait when 14 meals are ordered at once, but service was quite efficient. The staff took both drinks and food orders at the table, so no need... More

We chose The George to meet family who were flying into Bristol airport, having eaten there several times. The accommodation is excellent. Modern, fantastically comfortable bed, great showers, nice touches including complimentary bottle of water and refreshment making facilities. The breakfast was lovely, lots of fresh fruit, great pastries and a choice of hot food if you wanted it. Nice... More

Went on Saturday for a celebratery meal with family, the staff are very friendly and made us very welcome. There was 8 off us but the service was great. My only criticism was 2 off us had ribs and they were dry and not very tender. However everthing else was lovely.

Ended up here by accident after the original venue we had planned on eating at was closed, having drank in here a few times before I suggested to the group that we tried the food, starters were a tad expensive for the quantity but the quality was second to none. Mains were great all round with no complaints at all,... More
