Visited with a group of 10 friends early eve. The pizzas were very good value at two for one. Everybody else enjoyed their meal. I opted for the sausage dish but to be honest was a tad disappointed, It was not quite hot enough and not particularly tasty or well seasoned, sausages not juicy ( I thought they might have... More

4 of us all ordered Hake of the daily specials board. We could choose one of three 'salads' from the garden section to accompany it. All our choices were delicious. Mine included walnuts, rocket and feta cheese. We have had various experiences here over the years but this one was so good that we've booked to go with 2 other... More

I was driving back from Bristol to Weston and with my wife and mother and they suggested we go for lunch on the way back, I spotted the pub and thought we would give it a try. What a surprise, the smell of a real fire when we entered was inviting. The menu was varied and a little bit more... More

1 Guiness and a medium glass of Pino less than 30 pence change from £10! The salmon was very bony and three of the family members where unhappy.The two chicken dishes ordered arrived dry/dehydrated and very diminutive and again for the price was very poor. It neither met the novo cuisine or a larger portion requirement. Cheeseboard for two persons... More

Hosted by the George in their Dungeon room for a family members 60th birthday. Great room for the occasion and the staff were very attentive. The food was all good value and the menu apt for a Sunday lunch. The only slight hitch came with one order, presumably due to how popular the restaurant is, but all was sorted out... More

We visited here as a family for a birthday. I ordered the ribs, the fries were a measly portion and the coleslaw was horrible, so dry I couldn't eat it. I didn't order dessert because my main was so disappointing. The service was really great, but the food is distinctly average and overpriced.

Immediately shown to room and updated on all info needed. Evening meal was a house special burger that was recommended and delicious washed down with a pint of local ale that was very good... More

The George is a great gastro pub / B&B on the outskirts of Bristol near Backwell. Me and my wife sometimes call in on the way home from work. It's a lovely place for a quiet drink and the kitchen has ambitions. The menu changes frequently, but is a mix of traditional pub fayre with some more adventurous influences. They... More
