The George has been our pub of choice for a number of years when visiting the peak. Mainly because of the friendly staff and consistently good food. This changed today. We noticed the usual friendly faces were not about but thought no more of it. I ordered the Cumberland ring and mash my friend the chilli and rice. The food arrived unceremoniously and my banger and mash was before me. All the veg stuffed into what tasted like a frozen yorkshire pudding. The mash was microwaved to to superheated temperatures whereas the 'sausage' Sat atop everything else was tepid. I couldn't eat it, when I returned it to the bar I told them it was rubbish. The barman disappeared and returned with the 'cook'
Now up to this point an apology and a refund would have been sufficient, what I got was a disgruntled young lady scowl at me and justify the meal by saying the mash came out of the microwave the same time as the Cumberland came out of the deep fat fryer! Followed by an indignant "what do you want me to do about it" as she flounced off back to the kitchen. So despite the George having our peak pound every time we visit for years, this change in quality and friendliness means we won't be returning again.
There are enough venues chasing my money in castleton
I think it's time to find a new place.
