Just visited with friends for Sunday lunch and had a pleasant occasion. The pub was very friendly with excellent young staff. The food was OK but would prefer for my Sunday Roast meat not to be balanced on a mound of cauliflower cheese. The decoration and different rooms made for a nice atmosphere and the friendly attentive service with a... More

8 football supporters who follow Bristol City gathered for a pre-season meal. The most attractive item on the menu seemed to be the Beer battered fish and chips supported by 1 with gammon etc and the other an indian dish. The service by waitress Nicole was first class. (How she put up with some of the ribbing I do not... More

Stayed over for one night at The George breaking the journey from Yorkshire to Cornwall. Very warm welcome from the friendly staff and we were shown to the Washington room which was very well appointed with a lovely modern shower room. The night was hot and we were glad of the fan provided. 5 of the 7 rooms overlook the... More

We had been in Backwell a year ago and returned there this year. We opted to dine again at "The George at Backwell" as we loved it the first time. Well the food was better than we remembered, the staff was as polite and attentive as one can hope for and the deserts were to die for! We had a... More

A nice quirky room - small but adequate for one night - Unbearable hot however and the desk fan didn't help much ; double Windows helped alleviate most of the road noise (we were at the front of the building) but helped keep the room so hot I think. The restaurant staff were pheasant enough and the starters and main... More

This used to be a consistent well run restaurant, but sadly is now hit and miss with the standard of food. Sometimes food is good, other times the food is poor, I can only assume they have problems with the chefs they employ. We ordered Hake & chips, and Lasagne. The hake was soggy & the chips were anaemic and... More
