Had a valentines meal here last week and food was excellent. The shared starters was a highlight, you choose 1 dish from 'The Sea, The Garden and The Farm. We had Squid, Fetta Cheese and the chicken and it was superb. The service was great and there is a good selection of beers and wines on offer. We eat here... More

We came in for a meal last Tuesday as we were recommended by friends and thought we'd give it a go. I'm afraid to say we were slightly disappointed with our visit. The food was great, my lamb burger was just what I needed and my husband said his seabass and salad was good. However we were let down with... More

Overall I would say the food was good. The starters were excellent; we went for the trio of dishes and they did not disappoint. For mains, my partner and I both had burgers (BBQ Pulled Pork and a Chicken Katsu). We were excited by these after seeing them on the menu but after trying them we were left feeling a... More

Went as a group and pre booked and pre ordered food, but the food still took quite a long time to be brought out. I ordered the 'crisp halloumi' which was very disappointing, I've never heard of battered halloumi and wouldn't have ordered it had I known, there no salsa with it either despite that being advertised. The pizza toppings... More

Don't like the place. Really struggle with the concept they claim as I regularly see delivery trucks from a national company there. How far away is local.

We are very proud of our inn and our hard-working team. So I very sorry you don't like what we have to offer. I can confirm we support local suppliers whenever possible (Brian Wogan Coffee, Buxton Butchers, Ruby & White, A. David, Bristol Beer Factory, Choo Moo's Icecream) but of course we do source basic supplies from national suppliers. We... More

The George is highly recommended and I put my personal accreditation to that. I stay here regularly whilst working in the local area and feel completely at ease in the relaxing atmosphere throughout my stay. The staff are all attentive and nothing is too much trouble for them, well done to all. I see many people coming into the restaurant,... More

We stayed here the night before a flight, a great way to extend your stay and relax before departing. The rooms are plush for what is essentially a b&b within an Inn. A friendly welcome and good food was a great start to our holiday- just 15 minutes from the airport, so thank you.

Went here with a group of 7, age range 3-70. They managed to squeeze us in despite it being a busy Saturday lunchtime in the lead up to Christmas as we had forgotten to book. Service was excellent and our many 'can i have this on the side' requests and general menu amendments were no problem. The food arrived quickly... More
