“Good”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

We have a book of Kent Pubs published in 1964 and the George is in it so we thought we should see if it still exists. Fortunately it does and was a pleasure to visit at a lunchtime. The staff, particularly the blonde manageress (?) were friendly, efficient and quite busy. The food was more than acceptable. The food, including the coffee received my wife's seal of approval (and mine) as did the interior of the pub. The weather was a bit dull but as the pub is at the top of a hill the views in the summer (when we hope to visit again) must be fantastic. The locals were very friendly and one particular gentleman, whose father had been the local vicar pointed us in the direction of a memorial to American and Canadian airman killed in WW2. Also there is some memorabilia in the bar of the George.Well worth a visit!

“Fantastic recommendation!”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

We visited the george from a recommendation from some friends and were sceptical as they seem to have had some problems earlier in year BUT it was simply fantastic! 11 of us eat and the food, the service, the whole experience was great. It was very busy and a great old looking traditional pub. They said they had had a problem with some agency chefs in the summer but we could all highly recommend a visit. We will defiantly be returning.

“Oasis at the end of a long day”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

My husband and I had just completed a 10-mile walk around Pluckley only to find out all the pubs there stopped serving food at 3pm on a Sunday! Thankfully, one of them recommended The George, which was also dog-friendly (good news for our two dogs we had in tow). We had the Sunday roast which wasn't outstanding, but still a very good meal, especially the pork (the beef was a bit overdone). The pub was lovely with roaring fire and very friendly patrons all around. A very inviting place to have a pint and a meal.

“Manager and chef have changed”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

The standard of food has dropped considerably. We visited last night for the first time in a couple of months as we had been away. This is our third visit since the manager and chef left and the ambience has considerably changed. Previous favourites are no longer on the menu. We chose scallops to start and then mussels and fries and fish and chips. The scallops were ok, but definately not worth the price, the mussels were gritty and not fresh, the fries were very undercooked and all greasy and the salad was limp and not fresh. On our previous trip the spare ribs were so bad they were inedible. What was previously a great pub/restaurant and probably the best food in the area is now less than average. I completely agree with the review by Kiwee24.
