First of all, the good bits far outweigh the bad bit. The good bits being lovely rooms, excellent evening meals, good beer and wine selection and friendly staff, especially the new duty manager, Claire. The bad bit is something that other reviewers have commented on, namely the loud shouting that comes around 1.00, although most of this comes from another pub just around the corner, its clientelle make alot of noise as they try to head home.
The pub/hotel is right in the centre of Cranbrook which is, most of the time, a quiet and picturesque small Kent town. The rooms are all themed, with comfortable beds, wide screen TV's, shower bathrooms and free wifi, their biggest fault is the lack of double glazing which brings us back to the noise. I would hazard a guess that the Friday and Saturday nights (when we stayed) are the noisiest but I cannot confirm that. I felt sorry for Claire, who seems an excellent manager, having to get back out of bed to tell the drunks to go home. it is something they have to deal with as prospective guests will easily be put off by adverse reviews which by and large focus on the late night noise.
In the meantime enjoy the George and all its positives...but get some earplugs for weekends!
