Reviewed December 30, 2012

Attended a party and stayed in the rooms. Food was excellent and stylishly presented. Rooms simple and very clean. Band was great and added to the atmosphere. I think they cannot make too many changes due to the AGE of the place -would risk losing the Olde Worlde Charm... Lovely Grapevine covered courtyard.... We'll be back

Room Tip: Affordable and Clean

First time to visit the George. Food OK, staff very friendly. The band that played was called 'Underwraps'. Great rock band, singer was sensational and very impressed with one of the guitar players who was blind!! Hope to go back when they on again...

Room Tip: Sorry, didn't stay overnight.

Stayed here 3 months ago, it was comfortable but a little worn then, but we came back Yesterday regardless as the atmosphere is to die for, and were so surprised to see the rooms (5) that we stayed in last time were all modernised, new carpet, paint, heaters and convieniences. It is such an old pub, you really CAN NOT complain about the shared bathrooms! As for value for money I have stayed at campsites that have cost more than this per night! cheap as chips. The publican (Peter) is a very warm and inviting host and has so many good ideas for rejuvenating this Significantly historic NSW establishmnet, We will be coming back for a long while yet (even though I do expect the price to increase per night).

I've stayed at the George IV twice now over the last few months with a group of friends, and plan to do so again. The vibe is lively, the brews are excellent, and the staff friendly and helpful. We were well looked after. The rooms have been recently renovated, and are clean, no frills basic, excellent value. The food is great - hearty, generous serves. The George IV has soul.

Menu read

"Chicken Schnitzel
Free Range Chicken Breast w Rosemary and Parmesan Crumb, shaved Fennel and Roquette Salad"

Sounds great right? In reality it was a very plain frozen schnitzel that wasn't even as good as ones from Coles. The shoe sting chips were also pretty average.

Nice venue for a weekend lunch but the food was terrible.

The last time this place was renovated was when it was built in the 1800's. We ate food here and two of the party got the runs afterwards.

It truly is a shame what the owners have (not) done to this place. It truly is a dump. Popular with bikers it seems the place is about as clean as a bikers seat.

The food was very poor even for standard pub grub. The chips were burnt and re-heated. They poor dressing over your salad that could only be described as runny poo. The place is freezing (possibly because the place is full of gaps and holes!). Walk around the back and you see piles of rubbish, broken windows and rotting walls - it honestly looks like the local tip.

We saw the accommodation as we left - i'd rather sleep in the rubbish laden stream running to the side of the pub than sleep there.

Never again. Try driving onto Camden - some very nice pubs and lodges it seems and we were kicking ourselves when we passed through afterwards.

Staff were unfriendly, unhelpful and at times rude. We travelled with a large group having booked a private function. There was no cooling or even fans available in any room not even the dinning room. It was stifling so much so a number of people couldn’t be bothered to eat their meals, which were average. The rooms were poor to say the least: ripped or non existent fly screens; bed coverings with cigarette burns in them; I could go on. All rooms open onto the beer garden which is lively well into the night, windows open onto the main driveway. We asked if portable fans might be available and were groaned at needless to say no fans were made available. There is only one ladies shower for 12 room’s tiles are missing the general condition was dreadful. This matched the attitude of the staff behind the bar. Never again.
