“Modern British styling with the odd gothic twist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

This is a really nice place to spend an evening in rural Somerset. We needed a bed for the night with good facilities, good food and good beer. This place has all three.

The vibe here is very modern British although there's a nice little gothic twist that serves to remind you that you're not far away from Glastonbury. The standard of decor, styling and finish are all excellent.

We were very pleased with the food. It was well cooked, well presented and hot. The service is a bit quirky. The waiter looked out of place and there were a number of times when we tried to attract his attention with difficulty. But nothing that spoiled our meal though.

I don't know what the opposition is like but if I needed a good bed in the area again then I would certainly stay here.

We enjoyed our stay at the George in Wedmore and in particular thought the food was outstanding. The evening meal we had was faultless and the breakfasts some of the best we have had. The hotel/b&b side could do with a bit more finesse though. Our room was a good size but could have had more furniture/storage and could have had a more thorough dusting before we arrived. In addition the hot water was a bit temperamental. We were surprised though that the room wasn't serviced in any way during our 3 night stay, so no collection of used mugs/glasses, no replacement milk for tea/coffee or option to change towels - staff were pleased to help with this when this became apparent though. Our only other comment is that the church bells ring throughout the night which may keep light sleepers awake at night. The hotel is currently being refurbished and it would have been nice to have been advised of this on booking. All this aside, a mostly comfortable and pleasant stay.

Hi.
Thanks for your comments.
Sorry there was an issue regarding the servicing of your room. We have now put structures in place to ensure this is now dealt with properly.
The hot water has been inspected by a plumber who pronounced all well so I'm not too sure what happened there.
The church bells can as you say affect a very light sleeper. As a listed building we can not change the windows but they of course ring very little after 12. As we are in Church Street we hadn't thought of mentioning it specifically but will consider this.
Thanks again for your comments regarding the food.

My mother, daughter and I all spent a wonderful night at The George Inn. The room was comfortable, clean and unique. We had a lovely meal sat by a real fire, and surrounded by interesting looking locals and diners. The service was very good and the waitress was informative about the local area, Glastonbury, Cheddar and Wells.
On arrival I was struck by the beautiful building and gardens. It was nice to be able to park our car in the car park easily. As a special treat my daughter and I had our hair done at the Jonathon Weller Sanctuary in the courtyard. My mother had a massage which she said was fantastic. We will all be making it a regular event. We left refreshed and our hair was fantastic. Thankyou

Room Tip: We had room 2 and 3..Both totally different and equally nice

I live locally to the George and have been a regular over the past three years. The pub has a nice 'feel' with excellent decor with a quirky modern style which gives it character. However, I continue to be disappointed with the service which is less than friendly. The bar staff constantly talk amongst themselves and when ordering a beer I feel that I have interupted their private party. The beer is passable but could never win any awards for being kept well. I have only eaten there twice and the food was served tepid (it has quite a journey from the kitchen across the courtyard down a passage into the pub). In summary, the pub has much promise but fails to deliver at a number of levels. It needs to pull its socks up to compete with the other pubs in the village.

Thank you for your observations both positive and negative.
We have considered the general feedback we get from customers both via Trip Advisor and as importantly directly to us and accept that service sometimes has issues.
As a result of this from mid November we will be employing a new management couple with an excellent track record with such matters.
Hopefully you will be in to see an improvement soon.

Its Christmas and they were busy so we had lunch at the Swan and came back for coffee by the fire. Lovely Christmas decor, lots of atmosphere. I have not eaten here for a year but after experience today will definitely return.

I live locally to the George and have eaten here on several ocassions, the Swan is newcomer and having been to both this is where i decided i wanted my birthday as i have always had good food here, excellent service and in what is a quirky but very friendly pub/hotel. It was without doubt the right decision, the food, a pig roast, was absolutey fantastic, with roasts,stuffing, salads, coleslaw etc and everyone had a fantastic time. There were 30 of us and the quality and service remained impeccable and comparable to regular dining here. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Somerset

We hired a cottage in Wedmore to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. I contacted the Hotel and booked a table online for our evening meal on the Saturday and again for Sunday lunch. Having never visited Wedmore before we were not sure what to expect, but, The George Hotel was DEFINATELY the right choice! The atmosphere was really warm, quirky, friendly and welcoming from the moment we stepped through the door. From the mirrors and picture frames on the walls to the smokey smell from the open fires.The staff were all very friendly and willing to make you as happy as possible. The food was absolutely heavenly, brusting with flavour,beautiful presentation and just the right sized portions! Our meal on the Sunday left us wishing the kitchen was open that night, but, sadly no. So we ate at The Swan as they were having a special pizza night and it was very nice,but, sadly lacking in atmosphere! We would VERY HIGHLY recommend The George Hotel for a night you'll never forget and your taste buds will love you forever! The next time (and there WILL BE!) we would like to stay at The George Hotel so that we can try their breakfast as well!! They made our Anniversary just PERFECT!
