Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Second time visiting here. Great choice on the menu and specials. Lovely food, ordered rib of beef was cooked beautifully and the chef even cooked us extra roasted veg! Daughters scampi was great and almost and adults portion.
Waitress was friendly and polite service was good. Will go back when next in the area.

I inadvertently left my last review for The George Inn on the old site which I don’t believe the current owners have access to. The current people moved from seafood restaurant Tall Ships in Gloucester to come to St Briavels. The C17th George Inn is situated by the castle and has a car park behind it, and a garden with seating which has views of the castle and moat. It is dog friendly.

We rang with very little notice that day, and were able to book a table so close to Christmas, with friends. Impressed! Amazing service and friendliness. The food variety was very good with a vast array of specials, as well as a Christmas menu. The turkey and trimmings were delicious. The sea bream made a good alternative to turkey for those who didn’t want to be “turkeyed out” before the 25th. Another of us had pork. The quantities were very good. Everything was hot, fresh and well presented.

Desserts were very plentiful. The chocolate orange mousse cup defeated our chocoholic friend! The cheese and biscuits were plentiful and not the usual varieties. The smoked cheese in particular was good. A selection of biscuit types and vegetables finished the plate.

Lastly we finished with coffees all round. They were served with a hand made raspberry topped truffle. We felt utterly spoiled! The staff were friendly and efficient, never rushing us, nor hanging over us while we caught up with one another.

The inn itself with its dark beams, fireplaces and little nooks, is so essentially C17th British. It hasn’t been modernised so is a joy to experience. Real ale is available as well as local ciders and beer. Rooms are available upstairs for those who wish to stay locally.

We arrived just as service was finishing, but were greeted kindly and offered a choice from the menu of anything that was light enough to prepare quickly. We had speciality baguettes and they were fabulous. We would recommend the inn for lunch, especially in the pub garden. A lovely inn in a very beautiful village with spectacular views from key several points.

I hadnt visited The George for a number of years as visits had been very disappointing. But, last Saturday we thought we would give it a go, and we are very glad we did. The setting, as ever, is beautiful, with the garden backing onto the moat of the historic castle. The surprise was the friendly welcome from the landlord and his excellent staff, combined with an excellent menu, primarily of fish. In our party of 5 2 had an outstanding fish platter, comprising of smoked salmon, gravadlax, dressed crab, prawns, on shell prawns, and mackerel. Huge and delicious, and all for less than £18.00. Other members of our party had loin of cod, scallops and chicken, all of which were great value and so good. Vegetables were freshly cooked and again generous. The only oddity, which results in lost business for the pub, is they dont offer starters, Would suggest this policy is reviewed. This is a great value, friendly pub/restaurant that deserves support.

I love staying here. Third time this year. It is a very old pub with a very old castle next to it and a very old church. Get it? Oh and it is in the Forest of Dean so you come here for the great food, lovely places to walk and visit and fit in with the lovely locals. if you want Premier Inn, stay at Premier Inn!! It can't be modernised and they have done their best with the WiFi (it's actually better than what I get at home).
I am a wheelchair user with limited walking. The stairs are understandably steep but Ian and Pat were always on hand to help without me feeling a nuisance and Harry even volunteered to get the battery of my mobility scooter out of my car and charge it up.
A fridge on the landing was handy for the continental breakfast if you wanted it. I asked Pat to put it there as it seemed ridiculous her setting a table for just me. Good grief, I had half and the rest was used as a picnic. Thick cut ham from a joint, great selection of local cheeses, wonderful artisan breads, fruit, yoghurt etc. Pat does not do the breakfast everyday - she does need a break now and then, but the St. Briavels Deli, opposite, opens at 9.00 and does great hot sandwiches etc.
I have stayed in two of the three rooms and both are comfortable and en suite. ( sure I stayed there years ago when they weren't - I was born and bred in the area so have been coming down for years).
Was asked every day if there was anything I wanted. Lovely Ladies who waited on and sorted the rooms, I know a few by name but would not want to leave anyone out but thanks for looking after me.
Saw the review about the signage. As an ex Local, there never used to be any signs because if any of us had tried to climb the trees or stamp on the garden, we would have got a clip around the ear, and as for letting the dogs sit on the seat.....
The food is amazing and everyone goes the extra mile to make you feel at home. Everything is home made, including the mint sauce etc. Tim, Chef, excels at cooking fish but all the food is good.
The first time I stayed since Tim, Pat and Ian took over, they made me very welcome and that was before they realised my family go back generations in the village. Best Licensees here by far over the last 30 years or so.

Came into The George after walking to St Briavels from nearby campsite, intending a quick drink. Saw the menu and stayed for dinner! Nicely priced menu, lots of choice plus a specials board with loads more choice.

Food was hot, fresh and tasty. The ribs were great! Can't remember exactly what my partner and friend had but we all thoroughly enjoyed. And stayed for dessert. If we're ever back in the area we'll be back :)

Had the best Sunday lunch in years. Can’t compliment the food enough and the staff were exceptionally helpful, to top it off the beer was good too. I will defiantly making my way to The George after one of my walks again.

We were looking forward to eating at The George but the food was generally disappointing apart from the seafood platter we shared. Our cod loin was over cooked so dry and hard, our son’s burgers looked like they were from Tesco freezer section and the risotto was undercooked and tasteless. It used to be a great pub with really good food very popular with the locals but now it’s only got tourists eating there once only. The serving staff were very nice and it would be ok just for a simple snack perhaps.

Nice little pub, have known it for decades and seen quite a few owners come and go. Today just one young girl serving, doing a great job though a smile would not go amiss. However the signage on every flat surface saying what you may or may not do is far from welcoming. As for the men’s urinal unless you are six foot tall forget it, literally.

This was our 3rd visit for a meal since opening and as usual this was totally spot on for quality, service and value for money.
Four different meals, Sea Bream, Makerel, Duck and Clams. All cooked beautifully and served together with a smile.
Friends were also suitably impressed. Well done to Tim and the Saints. Thank you.

Not sure they have any rooms there but St Briavels Castle just behind the George Inn is a YHA and is also a nice location to stay.
