I am a firm believer that you have to experience things for yourself before being able to comment or understand another persons point of view. This website is a great place to get an understanding of different venues worldwide, and I have used it when I have visited different worldwide locations myself. Yes some places have had terrible reviews and are balanced with good ones. But after being invited to The George Inn by some friends I did look at this site and was pretty sceptical about what we may endure!
But I must say that my wife and I had the most tremendous evening and its why I have had to write this and recommend it to everyone. The village is beautiful and from what we saw was pretty vibrant with a couple of other pubs (The Swan is one of them and is a wonderful place, we had a drink there before our meal at the George) which all seemed busy which is rare these days.
The George is a fantastic building with lovely decor(the copper bar was gleaming and the metal sculptures were interesting), The ambience, the service and the evening was just perfect. But I cannot speak highly enough of the food, Yes it was busy and it took a little bit of time, but it was definitely worth waiting! why you would want to rush in and out when you are enjoying yourselves I do not know! I had slow cooked belly pork which was incredible and my wife was over the moon with her risotto. The wine list was also great and we enjoyed the Longbeach far too much (hiccup!).
All in all I must say with complete seriousness that you should not always go by what you read on this site, as it may not be a fair reflection on the place you visit. We have some fantastic places in Surrey to dine out at, but we will be back here for sure and will tell everyone to come down to beautiful Wedmore and experience it for themselves.
