“Very disappointed”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

On arriving we let our waiter know we were waiting on another, while being sat and asked for our drinks order we were almost demanded the others drink "what's the other one having when they come" we felt we had to decide on a drink due to the tone of his voice.
When the other had arrived we were given a very short time before being asked for our food order, the waiter was obviously not happy that we asked for more time to look.
One of us had to call the waiter for another drink and without finished her order the waiter walked away whilst saying yes, not asking if any of the others would like a drink!
After our meal was finished our plates were cleared and we waited at least 20minutes before calling the waiter for the dessert menu - as we were not offered it after our meal - to which we got back "well do you know what you want" - we hadn't even been given the menu!
Really appalled at the services this older gentleman gave! Certainly is not a people person so should not be working in a culinary environment.

“Pleasantly surprised for a change”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Dropped into the George for a lunch with colleagues - pre ordered food and service was quick and efficient. Staff had a sense of humour and were very helpful. Prices very good, food (particularly the chilli) very good and huge portions. If you aren't too hungry stick to the 'light bites' menu. We'll be back when time allows!

“Food at the Bar”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

There is a good variety of food, first class value as well as excellent service at the bar area of the hotel. The fact that the locals regularly use it is an indication of the quality and value.

“Bad service”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Used to eat here years ago and it was great, however visited last Saturday and got the worst service ever! Two older gentlemen who were inattentive and rude. Food came before drinks, not offered more drinks never mind a desert or coffee. They were maybe having a bad day but won't be going back to find out :(
