“Perfectly Good Pub Fayre”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

This is a nice big old pub with good beers -- there was plenty of air in here so although there were some dogs you were not particularly aware of them. Good place for a hearty evening meal and a beer.

“Excellent food and choice”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

I would recommend booking a table a day in advance, as this place gets quite busy - their menu is large and the food is exquisite, the portions are rather on the large side though.

“Not bad”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

The service was very good at this pub and the food was served quickly. Food was average and with a bit more effort from the kitchen this pub could be excellent. Was originally going to go to the Dog but it was packed and claustrophobic so didn't fancy it. If you just want simple pub food then the George is worth the visit.

“Lovely place to eat”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Meat was cooked beautifully and quite generous portion sizes (almost too generous!). Only quibble food wise was that the camembert starter could've maybe been cooked ever so slightly longer but that really was the only thing we could find fault with over the evening - food in general otherwise was superb, great selection of drinks, top service, and a nice friendly atmosphere in the dining and bar areas. Visited the place on a recommendation and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others - tried to actually go back another night but was fully booked so recommend booking in advance if dining on a weekend evening!

“Cow pie madness”
Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

If you find yourself in the area give this place a try for a fantastic meal. Large menu with some wonderful choices. Staff friendly and helpful. Parking in the local car park and a short walk to the pub at the end of the square. Well worth a visit.
