“Lovely pub and location - hope it was just an off day.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Have been here a couple of times before and both times had nice food and good service. The last time however, was a different storey. The staff had a "Kevin and Perry" approach to service which made us feel invisible and that we had perhaps caught them on a "couldnt care less" day. We had to chase for more drinks, knives/forks and sauces etc. Food was not up to scratch either. No sign of the landlord..maybe that was the problem :(

“Nice birthday lunch”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I was taken to the restaurant for my birthday lunch. Although the restaurant is lovely inside and the choice of food was very good, the waitress was a little brusque. No smile or conversation.
No complaints about the food or speed of service. Perhaps she was having a bad day.

“Food great”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

They obviously have a good chef in the back. Staff were great. Food superb, portions were HUGE so ask for smaller plates if you don't want man-size portions.

“cant taste the salmon for the bread”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

ordered 1 item on the menu and at 1pm they had run out, so ordered the salmon and cream cheese open sandwich. The bread was the thickness of a door wedge with the thinnest scrap of cream cheese possible and a few 3or 4 bits of smoked salmon. a couple of bit of lettuce, 1 slice of tomato and 1 slice of cucumber and to fill up the plate some crisps, all for the price of £5.95. The George needs to order their food from a better supplier so that they can serve up food that reflects the description on the menu and has some of the ingredients on the plate that can be tasted and cut down on the cheap things like bread and crisps and have all the items listed on the menu at least at 1pm(lunch time}
