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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a party for my sister's 50th wedding anniversary on 29th of December,bearing in mind we had to order our food at least a week in advance you would think they could make it good but no the food was not good at all.i...had beef wellington which was so tough I needed a chainsaw to cut it.my niece had vegetarian lasagna which was burnt top and bottom so basically inedible.we had various other dishes between our party of 14 but none were particularly good,they even managed to overcook the fish and chips had by one person.i had cheesecake for dessert which was inferior to one you can buy in Aldi for £1.30.all in all very disappointed.dont waste your money,!More

Have been here many times and always found the food and portion size good. Very disappointed today, food still good but sea bass dish so small it would barely feed my 5 year old grandson, barely half a fillet, some green beans and a few...saute potatos served on a child size plate. Fish and chips used to be a filling meal, now you choose small or large, ordered small as for an elderly person but was tiny for the money. To be fair the boeuf bourgignon was a ddceng size. Overall, terrible value compared to other places.More

Went for Sunday lunch. Sat in the bar as dining room was full. We had a few hiccups with our order and were beginning to feel we had made a mistake choosing The George. But the customer service was excellent. Staff did everything they could...to put things right and compensate us for the inconvenience. When the problems had been sorted, the food was good and enjoyed by our party of 3. We would eat here again.More

Two of us took our wheelchair-bound friend to lunch today. The manager guided the wheelchair to an outside table and took our drnks order. We ordered food which was excellent - the best ham I have had for a long time. Good value for money....Efficient and friendly staff - I can't speak highly enough about the new manager. Hadleigh is fortunate to have such a hostelry.More

Made to feel extremely welcome by the staff, especially Kerry. Ate here twice and the food was absolutely fabulous, plenty to chose from on the menu to suit all tastes and lots of yummy deserts to finish off with. Dog friendly and they gave our...puppy lots of attention and water and biscuits. Will be returning next year. Very clean pub as well with a bar area and dining room and outdoor area being spotless. Locals made us feel welcome as well which is always a plus. Keep up the good work everyone.More

This pub is a nice building, very fitting for the local area. The staff seem friendly. The outdoor area is nicely lit, and has plenty of space. There is a lack of indoor seating however since a fairly large proportion of the downstairs area, probably...8 tables, is reserved for food, even in the evening when no one is eating. This is made worse on a Saturday when a band uses two of the few available tables. Also, drinks are quite expensive. On this occasion we arrived fairly late, around 23:15, and upon approaching the bar one of the bar staff came over and shouted (as it was the only way to hear over the band) to us that because we arrived after 11pm they wouldn’t serve us. No reason was given, and despite us arriving before last orders at 23:30, we were refused service. So we left, they lost out on £10 of custom, and made two potential customers rather dissatisfied.More
