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.

Terrible meal. My wife had the soup of the day. Tomato and had 2 spoonfuls. I had a prawn cocktail which was decidedly average. She had steak pie which was awful. Frozen veg and tasteless potatoes

Delicious food, huge portions, excellent staff and great value for money. Booking is highly recommended as this place is always busy but with a great atmosphere. We were recommended The George by several locals who each claimed to never have had a bad meal and...I can now agree as the food was absolutely delicious! The only problem was narrowing down the choice! There are smaller portions of dishes as well which, don’t be fooled, are still big but save on some pennies too. Highly recommend The George!More

After being let down by another restaurant on a busy Saturday night, the George managed to fit us (4 adults and 2 dogs) in at short notice. Very friendly and accommodating, and the food was great. We’ve been in previously with the dogs for coffees...and for lunch and they were equally friendly and helpful then too. Highly recommend.More

I told Karen I had an electric mobility scooter, THAT was no problem! we just had to knock on the side door to be let in, my hubby told Karen I couldn't sit on a hard chair, THAT was no problem! Karen put a lovely...comfortable chair with cushions for me at the table right next to the door that we came in and I was able to park my scooter behind me. Serving staff were very friendly, attentive and efficient and the food was just superb and reasonably priced. We dined two nights and the food and service on the second night was equally excellent. Looking forward to our next visit and we highly recommend the George restaurant and bar.More

My wife and I popped in for a drink and decided to stay for dinner. Although it looks like a bar there is little space for drinking so it really is a restaurant. Before I went I was recommended the meat pie and told that...the portions were huge. My meat pie was lovely and the portions were big. My wife had the beef stroganoff, which was good and again, a large portion. The restaurant let itself down by trying to serve a warmish Pinot Grigio. I didn’t even taste it, just picking up the warm bottle was enough. They changed it for the house Sauvignon Blanc that was properly chilled. Good found at a reasonable price. Keep an eye on. The wine temperature.More

We booked our short break to the George in the spur of the moment but we’re not disappointed The receptionist on the phone was very informative and told us about the special dining offer warning us the portions were generous and she wasn’t kidding. The...room was immaculate and roomy with a massive super king sized bed wall mounted flat screen tv 3 huge windows make the room airy and bright and the contemporary en suite shower room was perfect. The main meals are served in the popular lounge with a designated section for residents eating the drink was keenly priced as was the food. The portions were as described generous to say the least our deal was for breakfast and a 3 course dinner, although totally delicious we were unable to finish the three courses. The staff were very efficient and friendly and keen to please making our stay memorable and enjoyable. We would not hesitate in returning to the George as its position just of the town centre and beach made it a perfect place to stay.More

I have eaten out at the George Hotel for years.Its our go to place as you know you will always get a lovely meal at a reasonable price with good service in pleasant cosy surroundings. Was really disappointed though last night when I went for...a meal with friends.Staff were very attentive on arrival taking drink and food orders, food arrived in good time but the service otherwise was really poor.They left the table cluttered with used glasses and side plates from soup course throught our meal.Once main meal was served they seemed to loose interest in us, after sitting with empty plates for a good 45 mins ,we had to call them over in the end as we wanted coffees.They cleared plates but left all the empty glasses. It wasn't as if they were rushed off their feet there were only 3 tables and by the time we left we were the only people there. Just poor customer service, just didn't seem to want to be bothered. I ate there just a few weeks ago and it was a totally different experience. It won't stop be returning as food always great, but I feel staff need more training.More

Out for a family meal, we don't meet very often as live far apart. Decided on The George as had been last year and loved it. Where do I start... The seats were crammed in so much, you either had to ask the person behind...you to move or the person beside you to get up if you wanted the toilet or to leave your chair. Sat with jackets on as the air vent was blowing cold air on us. 3 of the 4 meals were bland, watery and just not good enough for the money. Over £15 for macaroni cheese and chips - I sent it back. No flavour, watery sauce. How can a chef get something so basic wrong?? Didn't want to order anything else as had no confidence in the menu after trying the other meals and they were below average at best. One of the meals was wrong and the waiter completely ignored me by walking away which delayed time in getting it replaced. Always awkward when you're the only one sitting there with no food for a good 10 minutes. The staff just didn't seem bothered - had to approach them to make a complaint. And after I did so, we received no service AT ALL. Not to check if we wanted more drinks / desserts /the bill. Or not even to see if everything had been rectified. They took the price of 2 meals off the bill after I complained which was appreciated but definitely necessary. Really need to work on customer service skills and the food itself. Not a good experience at allMore

Terrible service. Sat waiting to order for 20 minutes. Finally ordered and had to wait 40 minutes with still no sign of food. When asked they went to check and never returned. When asked again it was apparent they had not put the order through....Very unprofessional service and without a care in the world. Wouldn’t recommend.More

Booked a table for my Wife and myself with our son and grandkids in tow. I had the Fajita's which were excellent. I over indulged and struggled to finish my meal which is not me. I would have liked the Fajitas to be served sizzling...on the hot plate, true to Fajita style but this was a small point. kids meals were bigger that the kids could manage but they gave them a good go. service was superb and could not be faulted. Heading back next week but change my food choice i have heard that the Scampi is good. see you all thereMore

We were staying at the Links hotel for three nights. Unfortunately on Sunday night they had no staff in the kitchen so we came to the George for dinner and drinks. What a pleasure that proved to be. We had four different mains courses and...desserts. Food was very good indeed. Drinks we had superb draught Guinness and lager and a bottle of Sauvingnon Blanc... Wicked lady. Service was tremendous. Pleasing to at the young waiting staff were excellent. Monday evening we ate at the Links food very good but 40minute delay from kitchen. So on Wednesday we had dinner again at the George. This time we had the small portions of mains all excellent again. Unfortunately the only dessert was a Key lime pie. Quite sharp served with a synthetic cream foam. Not the same quality as mains. Service was excellent again with very efficient staff.More
