“Fine town pub of great historical and architectural interest”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

A fine town pub of great historical and architectural interest - not to mention ambiance of great character, friendly staff, some well kept ales and decent food at reasonable prices. One of the better pubs in Glastonbury and well above average. The ale was well-kept and the food very good and reasonably priced pub fare. Only problem is that it can get packed, even out of season - my last visit was in March and I only just managed to get a table.

“Disappointing second visit”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

From the exterior the building has a traditional, historical feel; great architecture, and right in the middle of town. Interior similar - flagstones, etc, litle bars and booths off the ancient passageway.
Unfortunately, food was not available (on a Thursday night), and the staff? or managers? who knows? could not be bothered to break off their conversations to offer service. Sadly, it was like our previous visit, so no change there.

“Glasto Carnival 2012”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

My partner and I recently visited Glastonbury for the Carnival.After a 300 mile journey we revisited the George and Pilgrim for dinner and were not disappointed.
The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. Couldnt fault the service and we had a great first night in Glastonbury.
We returned a couple of days later for a drink after a busy day shopping in the town. My other half fancied a hot toddy as it was so cold outside and the chap behind the bar couldn't have been more helpful. He served my drink and asked us to find a table and brought the drink over to us.
We love this place and will keeping returning ... Thankyou.

“Don't waste your time”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

bar staff were unhelpful and and were preoccupied with chatting with the regulars, who blocked the bar and didnt move when asked to. When asked about food and what was on draft, we were looked at like we were from another planet. Drinks very over priced. we were sent to sit in a separate empty room if we were ordering food, the room had no windows or background music ( or atmosphere). We drank up and went to the Who'd a thought it round the corner, which was more welcoming , with good food and service.
