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 really enjoyed our valentines meal. We were greeted by the manager and then served our food by his exremely efficient and polite colleagues. The food was served promptly hot and very tasty. The prices are not hefty, so the George is not just a...venue for the special occasion, we will definately be back, particulary looking forward to being able to sit out in the gardens on those warmer spring/summer days, although the real fire last night was a real delight.More

From phone call booking to dessert, the service was second to none. Spoke to Chris on the phone who was overly helpful to get us in at our desired time, despite large parties in at the same time. Even though busy, every single customer that...walked in was greeted with a warm welcome. The severs were knowledgable on wines when asked and the food…..completely delectable and very reasonably priced for the quality, freshness and creative plating. I will recommend this venue to all and can’t thank all the staff enough. Thank you team!More

We have visited this restaurant several times over the last couple of years and it’s always been great so we chose to go here for my special birthday with the family and were really disappointed. Limited menu choice as we were a large group (13...people), the fishcakes were overcooked, the lentils tasted of vinegar and chips were overcooked. Really disappointing food. The service was good but won’t rush back. Such a shame as it’s always been so good in the past.More

Been to this pub many times with no issues and food has been great. However, I am shocked at how appalling my experience was today with the new tapas style menu. Took more than an hour to come out apart from one random mackerel dish,...kids were starving as their food didn’t come out either and we had to chase up three times, it was basically a joke. They also didn’t take our deposit off of the bill initially and we had to ask for it to be deducted. Not sure what’s happened to this place but whole experience was rubbish and chaotic. Don’t bother going here!!More

Great find. We chanced on this pub by accident…it’s situated along a single width (2 way) lane and was a delight. Old Georgian(?) parlour type pub. Unglamorous but clean and run by cheerful, helpful staff. Food was faultless and super tasty. Interestingly offered a tapas...range too. Would highly recommend this very well kept secret gem!More

We went for Sunday lunch with another couple. We were shown to our table and, within minutes, were offered drinks whilst we looked at the menu. For starters we has garlic prawns and the crab tarte - all absolutely delicious. Then 3 of us had...a roast dinner with all the trimmings ( the beef was beautifully cooked and came as 2 thick slices) and one had the roast cauliflower which again was terrific. The staff could not have been more attentive and helpful. Would highly recommend this pub !More

Attended the curry quiz. Shown to our table at the back quickly. The service was good. The quiz master was hilarious and we had a fun time. Unfortunately the same could not be said about the food. Very overpriced and not very nice. The popodums...were rock hard, the rice was cold and the chicken curry was watery, flavourless and full of wedges of tomato. Did not taste like curry at all. Tasted like a tomato sauce. Desserts were extra and not particularly good. The cheese board was better. We would return but only if we could order from the main menu.More
