Looking for somewhere to eat in a Saturday night; had heard good things about The George side decided to try it out. Restaurant full but had a table reserved in the lounge. Good quality steak was had. Service excellent, good value for money and a good pint of beer to wash it down.

Popped in on a Saturday evening by chance as the place we were going to had a sign on the door saying "hour and a half wait for food". I have driven past this place many times but had only previously been in at lunchtime and what a good choice it was! Four real ales on the bar plus all... More

Not our choice to visit The George but we went for a special birthday celebration. The food was nice, if a little pricey. The waitress though was straight out of Fawlty Towers - hilarious.

We visit this pub once a year to exchange Christmas presents with family members and have a meal. Each visit has always been excellent. The staff take a pride in their work and make you feel welcome. The choice of home cooked food is good with advice on gluten free meals available. An excellent meal.

Went as a large group for burger night.. friendly staff (Theresa) who made us feel as welcome as the locals from our large group. Good choice of burgers with nice sized portions and well presented, nicely dressed salad. Only one tiny point.. the burgers were small compared to the size of bap.. just get smaller rolls and it'll look better!... More

Went here on Sunday 30th October for an evening meal. Lovely country pub one side and nice restaurant the other side. It was quiet both sides which suited us for dinner. Ordered our drinks and sat at out table. Menu was a good choice and found it hard to make a snap decision on what to eat. After debating I... More

We went to the restaurant for a special occasion meal. Food was very well presented. A little bit more expensive than some in the area, but for something different, it is perfect. Advise to book as can get busy.

Oh dear. First impressions not good - Bar was not empty but so devoid of atmosphere you could hear the fridges running behind the bar. I ordered a mixed grill which at £15.95 I thought was at the upper end of pub food pricing. It took 30mins to arrive. Now I know a mixed grill is not the height of... More
