I visited with my parents and husband for sunday lunch. The food was great quality without being overly fancy and the atmosphere was lovely with lots of families. I'd definitely return if in the area.

Despite taking my girlfriend on a 6 mile walk to get to this pub, it was well worth it.

The staff were extremely friendly and they were very accommodating for my girlfriends dog who had also come along for the trip.

We elected to sit outside, even in December! The burger was excellent and everyone was very helpful.

A reasonable price for very high quality food in a great setting. Highly recommended.

We visited this restaurant a few days ago for a family celebration and were not disappointed. I dread meals out, being gluten and cornstarch intolerant, as most places simply can't cope and I end up with some lettuce leaves! The George were exceptional. When I rang to book and to discuss what, if anything, I would be able to eat, they informed me that the chef would be able to mix and match on the menu and ensure I had a choice. They arranged for the chef to ring me and when I arrived they gave me my own 'mini menu', a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 desserts...fab. The food was beautifully cooked, delicious, good quantity, well presented and prompt in arrival. They even did an 'off the menu' version of baked mushrooms for my daughter and made my father's dessert a bit special for his birthday! Fantastic food and fantastic customer service...definitely a place to visit again!

I visited the George with family who live nearby, and I wasn't disappointed. It has a lovely atmosphere, with a fresh modern look, and great staff, who were very attentive and genuinely friendly. We all had a main course-I had a burger which was amazing, and the rest of the party had fish pie-which was packed with fish, bangers and mash & fish and chips. All plates were empty!! We then got a sticky toffee pudding to try. Even though I couldn't eat another thing, & I've got to say it was the most devine thing I have ever tasted, and would heartily recommend it...even if you think you are too full! It's in no way stodgy and Just delicious. Thank you. I'm definitely arranging another visit soon.
