Please also see my rating of The George hotel itself. We had Valentines Day dinner at the oak panneled restaurant (jackets required for the gentlemen) at The George on a set menu. It was extraordinary. The service and the food were exceptional. The beef melted in our mouths. I've never had better beef.

I live in Stamford but this was my first time visiting The George. We ordered two full afternoon teas which were big and delicious. The staff were so attentive they were almost too attentive but it was very pleasant to be somewhere where the staff are on hand when you need something. All in all it was a lovely visit... More

Mid week lunch with family, service was pleasant throughout the sitting. Nice menu choice with food being served beautifuly and tasted very nice, we all had chosen differently and it all looked tasty. Nice fresh bread, apparently made locally, served while we waited however, be careful not to eat too much of this, leaves little room for your main dishes.

We enjoyed a first class dinner in The George's Oak Panelled Restaurant with friends on the evening of Friday 10th February. The setting, service and food were all of a very high standard! No complaints from our table!

After being a loyal customer at The George for many years and after enjoying numerous fabulous New Years Eve functions we could think of no better place to celebrate Valentine's Night than the restaurant at the George.

So sad to see this review, I really would have hoped as a loyal customer you could have contacted me personally so I could have looked into your points for you. I must stress though that we are not under new management as such, I have been the Head Chef for over 18 years but have been promoted to Chef... More

Ate in here as resident at the hotel. The food was lovely, large portions and beautifully served. I didn't manage a dessert but my husband did and he said the fruit meringue nest was gorgeous!

My partner booked the hotel as a surprise for an early Valentines. I have heard outstanding reviews from people in the past about "The George" and alas I was a tad disappointed.

My wife and I used to live in nearby Bourne some 40 years ago, and we used to eat regularly at the George. I have hired meeting rooms, stayed there, and even hired the oak panelled restaurant exclusively. We have been revisiting every year since we moved to Devon, and are great fans of the George, it is special. On... More

Thank you for your wonderful review, and your comments about the food are just fantastic. We have always charged separately for vegetables and potatoes as many people often want one or the other. I am sorry that you feel that they are over priced, but we feel that we offer a good choice of potatoes and vegetables. I do hope... More

My wife and I visit the restaurant on a regular occasion and thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere. On our last visit everything started off very well with a G&T in the lounge while looking through the superb menu. We ordered the wine and that was ready at the table for us in a an ice bucket. The sommelier poured the wine... More

Description
A magnificent oak-panelled space is the fine dining setting at The George Hotel of Stamford, one of England's greatest coaching inns. A mix of regular locals and hotel guests can always be found relaxing at bare oak tables beneath an eye-catching hand-painted ceiling. In summer, or on mild nights, they like to sit outside under the heated canopy in the ivy-clad courtyard. Open for grand lunches and dinner, the George Hotel Restaurant serves traditional yet imaginative English dishes, specialising in seafood. Lighter daytime dishes such as Dover sole are superceeded at night with heartier meals such as rack of lamb with fresh herbs and redcurrant jelly, and roast English beef carved at the table on a silver trolley. Accompanied by traditional trimmings, of course.
