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.

You’ll see from the photos this chain is running this piece of history into the ground Yet charging a fortune 🫣 Insult to injury, despite collosal price for such a knackered room - at breakfast despite thereby a huge coffee machine - a prickly waitress told us we could only have the dish-water-like- filter-coffee They wanted to CHARGE for an espresso (Id paid £188.55 …..) This chain (RED CAT) have cut so many corners it’s a circles and running down the drain So few staff - the manager was running about trying to get to he. A bar person, check people in and then serve coffees in the other room I’d avoid this place You’ll save around a hundred on another I’m if you can find one this knackered neglected and run into the ground A crying shame FYI I’ve run tour groups and been to 47 countries I’m telling you this is poor and the owners have neglected this to the point of tears

Popped in just for some chips at lunchtime on this Spring Exuinox Paid £5 for 9 (yes nine) chips which were served in a receptacle you may use to pot a small cactus in. Chips were cold and half cooked! Will not be frequenting again. ABSOLUTE RUBBISH!!

We visited the George and pilgrim for dinner on our stay in Glastonbury. The place itself looked amazing from the outside so went in to eat. We had the steak and ale pie with chunky chips which was lovely. Our server jack was really pleasant and helpful nothing was too much trouble for him. He was very polite and charming. Lovely food excellent service,will definitely return and recommend.

We stayed as a family (2 adults, 1 child) at the beginning of February. The George and Pilgrims is an extremely ancient and wonderfully historic building which oozes atmosphere and character from every beam. We stayed in room 7, the Abbot Whiting room, which is on the top floor overlooking the High Street. It was a large room, comfortable and clean, with toiletries and tea/coffee provided. If you’re after a modern room, it wouldn’t be the place to choose, but we loved it. The floors are slightly wonky but what else is to be expected in a place so old?! We slept well in it, the ghosts didn’t bother us too much, and we loved staying in a room with such history. The access is via a spiral staircase. Fine for us, but wouldn’t be suitable for someone with serious mobility issues. We opted for a meal deal when we booked, which included breakfast and a two course meal, either starter and mains or mains and desert. The food was delicious and very well presented. Highly recommended. I was delighted to find that they serve mead at the bar, very nice too! The location of the hotel is great for popping in and out to look at the shops. Parking is available in the car park behind the hotel. You can pay by cash or phone, it costs £6.50 a day. I cannot praise the staff in this hotel enough, they are all wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble for them, they are friendly and so welcoming. Thank you G&P, we will be back!

Having stayed and dined at the George and Pilgrim before in 2022, I rebooked as I loved the history of the building, in a building that age you don't expect shiny new perfection, there's going to be cracks here and there, it's a grade 1 listed building! However, after being shown to my room, the confession room, after being 8n there little under 10 minutes my allergies started (I have severe allergies and carry epi pens) there was mold in both the bedroom and bathroom, they did offer another room, which didn't have mold but there was mold in the corridors, (this mold wasn't here in 2022 and I was told was due to slates falling off) after a lengthy process (as I'd booked via a 3rd party) I was given a refund,

The staff were really pleasant and helpful - they just deserve a better hotel. The room was clean but the bath was chipped and uninviting, and the fact that there was a fire exit running between bed and bathroom was just weird and unpleasant. I really should have asked to be moved. Main corridor lighting worked intermittently, which is difficult in the dark, given the uneven flooring. The staff were clearly overstretched, which made me feel very uncomfortable. Many of the public areas were run-down - but not in a 'good' way that adds to any ambience. It was hard to find a chair in the restaurant that wasn't stained; many of the walls were grubby. The food was good, but menu items were often sold out really early in a sitting. The steep spiral staircase is almost impossible to navigate with luggage - obviously there's not much to be done about that in such an ancient building, but visitors do need to be aware of it, as it's not exactly 'accessible'. I stuck it out for three nights because I loved Glastonbury so much, but would not repeat the experience. This has all the hallmarks of a business which is trading on its heritage - I hope, for the sake of its fabulous and overworked staff that an overhaul happens soon.

Boxing Day 2021 ... We were out for a walk at Glastonbury Tor, and walked in to 'Glasto' itself. As expected we came across numerous crystal and faerie shops. Very little was open (covid? or just boxing day?). We saw this lovely ancient inn which was open, so we went in for a late lunch. Pleasant staff, and lovely food. We had a club sandwich and haloumi salad sandwich as a lite bite. I'd definitely go back and be more adventurous with the pigeon and pomegranate next time. Nicely centrally located. ... UPDATE ... New Years Eve 2023 ... 3 stars We went back to Glastonbury today and had a meal in the same The George & Pilgrims Hotel and this time we were really not impressed. Nothing from the old menu was on the new menu. The menu was quite limited and prices much higher for what they were. I ordered the beef-rib burger which was good and cooked well, though the portion of fries was mediocre. My wife had the Butternut Squash Chicken & Avocado Salad and our son the Fish & Chips. The Fish & Chips was nowhere near a 'normal' portion. The fish was small and a lot of it was fish skin and the portion of mushy peas was no more than a tea spoon. We did mention this to the staff and they gave us 1 free dessert. We do go to Glastonbury a few times per year, but we'll be giving this pub/hotel a miss for sure from now on.

We stopped in here for a drink as was recommended by a shop owner across the way . What a beautiful place so Quirky & cosy inside , we had some food which was lovely & we decided to see if there was a room available to stay which luckly there was. The room was old ( which we wanted) it was very atmospheric but sadly no ghostly sightings! Room was clean & bed was comfy we had everything we needed . All the staff we encountered were very freindly & nice , especially the lady who served us at breakfast , we had a good chat about our dogs that had stayed with us aswell , bonus for allowing dogs . Breakfast was tasty & plenty . Overall we loved this place & will return again
