Fairly useless set up at the bar. Good luck at being spotted by the generally vacant staff, and better luck paying, at the one till. One till? Clearly a lot of money has been spent on a much needed revamp, which looks pretty good. However, any sense of welcome, character and staff organisation were not on the 'to do' list.... More

Newly refurbished so it is lovely and clean. Lovely courtyard were we sat for lunch on a warm day. However, not sure about the food. Ordered cheese and tomato pizza but the tomatoes were tinned ones cut in half - never seen that before. Also tried to order skinny fries (which were on the paper menu) to be told at... More

Although the revamp has given the George a new look and feel, what is lacking is the basics. The drinks are not priced competitively for the local area and the food was over cooked and poor value for money. I know they have only recently reopened but to wait an hour for food to then discover that what you have... More

Dropped in by chance on a trial event of its reopening, first drink was for free (amazing) and half price food (brilliant). We ordered a pizza, garlic bread, some tapas dishes and a salad, so it was coming from two different kitchens, pizza/garlic bread came quickly, however there was a delay with the other food, but the staff were really...
