First time diner was nice and quickly served. I had the vegetarian mezze.The dessert was wonderful: fig pie with mascarpone. Second time lunch took way too long to be served. Even though we ordered one day in advance for our group. The artichoke and eggplant was nice but not enough filling.

Came here with a group of friends to have a drink and a meal. Sadly the place was fully booked. The place is stunning with lots of care and attention given to the menu and surroundings. Only ended up with a drink at the bar which we had in a very comfortable seating area at the front of the building.... More

I often visit the George Hotel and enjoy a coffee with a biscuit in the bar. However when I visited today I was rudely told by the bar man that no biscuits were available with coffee today. No explanation was given. I found his attitude unfriendly, rude and condescending. I am amazed that a hotel that describes itself as a... More

A lovely selection of local seafood and lamb, beautifully cooked. A very laid-back atmosphere. There's wide range of wines and we were well provided with their own bottled sparkling water. My vegetarian daughter had the meze which was more than she could manage.

My husband and I have been to Rye on numerous occasions but never in the evening so having looked at various menus for dinner, we decided upon the George. The only table we could get was at 9.15pm. Arriving a bit early we had drinks at the bar which had a nice ambience. We were lead to our table at... More

The food is quite good but we thought it was just a little expensive. The second night we skipped the starters which made it a better deal. The wines are very good. We preferred the atmosphere and ambience in the bar to the main dining room.

After travelling and a hectic week at work this was just perfect! Lots of choice of food in a very lovely atmosphere. My husband had the scallops and fish stew which was very tasty and I had the squid and hand-made fish and chips. Can't fault the service. Really exquisite!

The food here is always stunning. On this visit we had scallops and an amazing terrine to start with. Our mains were top quality steak and the George Burger with the most delicious homemade handcut chips. Staff are attentive but not too much so and the wine list is supberb a big plus! Love the decor too!

Description
The George Grill and our bar, The George Tap, are temples of all day dining, serving a modern European menu with a sunny, Mediterranean slant.

At the heart of the kitchen is a Josper wood-charcoal grill, where our kitchen team, led by Robert Wright fast-cook seafood just caught from Rye Bay, local meats and vegetables.

The George Tap offers a large range of wine by the glass, including those from vineyards in East Sussex and Kent.
