“Great country pub”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We stayed at Orton Hall, just a short walk from this pub, and had dinner on two separate occasions. Being a party of three vegetarians, we didn't expect much in the way of selection, but we were pleasantly surprised to see that they had not just a couple of dishes on the menu, but also a few vegetarian specials on the board. All of the dishes were well cooked, service was excellent, and the beer and cider selection is very good.

We were a party of 21 ranging in age from 6 to 79. We had a great early dinner. The large number of people in our party didn't perturb the very kind landlady. The service was still quick. The fish (and chips) was fresh and delicious. Likewise the chick pea chilli was tasty, light and delicious. The puddings were old fashioned like jam roly poly and first rate. A perfect place for great pub food and great Jennings beer.

Stayed recently as family of four on C2C walk. Very comfortable pub with rooms. The evening meal was OK but the breakfast could have been better - boiled eggs and hash browns were underdone. Host was extremely friendly and helpful. She let us use her washing line and pegs to dry out our walking gear.

Very warm welcome, nothing was to much trouble for them, great home cooked food, breakfast first class.

We stayed in the family room which slept 5, it was above the bar which we thought might disturb us (we have a small one, and two older), although you could hear the bar it was really just background noise, the locals were also considerate when leaving.

All in all our stay was wonderful and we couldn't have had a nicer time. If I could make a couple of suggestions they would be it would be good to have an out of the way place to boil and store the kettle away from small fingers and to cover the exposed plugs with safety sockets. These are small points though.

We would stay again and recommend to family and friends. Defenantly 10/10 from the Kirk family.

Booked at the last minute, as a stop-over on the way to Scotland.
Greeted by name on arrival. Very friendly, lovely family room for 5. (So big!)
Lovely evening meal,even the fussy child polished off his plate!
Order taken for breakfast the next morning and this was ready for us when we got up.
Would love to go back.

booked at last minute. Clean comfortable room very tastey pub food at good prices. Would be an excellant stopping off point on a journey as easy access to motorway but in a peaceful village setting. Enjoyed the sausages and bacon from the family farm. May well use this pub again for a weekend close to the Lakes .

Located next to the Chocolate Shop, in the center of town, The George is a convenient and delightful place to stay. The owners are gregarious and the pub is really the heart of the town. With so many local pubs closing across England, it was exciting to see the lively community spirit. The rooms were cozy and the dinner was fabulous-one of the best pizzas I have ever had (this comming from an Italian American New Yorker!)
