“Fantastic Christmas Party!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

We booked for a family party and were not disappointed. Our last minute changes were well accommodated for and the staff were friendly and positive throughout. We had a large number of small children with us who were made to feel very welcome. Most of the food was great, apart from a rather unfortunate goats cheese starter that was pretty unpleasant! All other starters and mains went down well. Nice puddings and excellent cheese board. The atmosphere created was very 'Christmasy' with great decorations etc.

We stayed for 2 nights in the oak-beamed Red Room which was a lovely size, with plenty of room for a 6ft sleigh bed, two easy chairs and table and a wardrobe and sideboard. It had an ensuite with a bath with shower over which was all absolutely fine. The food served in the restaurant side of the pub downstairs was very, very good. With my husband I shared a whole, oven-baked camembert served with crudities and bread - delicious! The rest of the meal was excellent both in quality and presentation. The wine list was varied and had a good selection from pricey to reasonable. The breakfasts were stunningly good with fresh juice and all the daily newspapers provided. Service was discreet, charming, friendly and prompt. What's not to like? We would love to return there one day soon.

Room Tip: Can recommend the Red Room for its size and charm although road noise an occasional issue during day...

Dinner Saturday evening. Nothing to write home about here. Rather over priced and poor pub food. Just a shame as the village deserves better than this. Staff are nice enough but rather casual but the starter and mains we had were very uninteresting.

Went into Alfriston, on the way to Eastbourne. What a pretty village, Have a look at the Clergy House,on the village green. Full of History. We popped into the George for a pint and a sandwich. Lovely old pub, friendly staff. Roaring fire. Enjoyed it

We stayed here as a group for two nights during Glyndebourne. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and the breakfast, with all the weekend newspapers provided, was delicious. Lots of cooked options from full flat fry up through to smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or kippers. I had kippers and they were great.
The rooms are quite quirky and the showers not great, but they have lots of character and they are very clean and comfortable. I was in a single room which was a reasonable size for a single room and had tea / coffee, hair dryer, quality white sheets (which they changed after one night, even though I was only staying two nights - impressive).
My room was £70 a night, the larger rooms are more but I have to say I thought this was great value. Much nicer than staying in a B&B.
I would definitely stay here again... Recommended.

We found without a booking and were pleased with the reasonably priced, though somewhat small, room with a comfortable bed, a good shower with amenities, and excellent food. The building reflects its ancient provenance and is a bit quirky, but reassuring that fire plans are well laid out. Slight down side is parking on the street a couple of blocks away, but then medieval pubs were not meant for cars, were they? Staff were friendly and helpful.

Stayed at the George Inn over New Year and was really pleased with it. Stayed in the Red room which is even nicer than it looks in the photos. It's traditional, cosy and welcoming. The staff worked incredibly hard and were extremely attentive and friendly. Lovely fire in the pub downstairs and great food too (especially the Venison). I would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend to others. You wont break the bank and you're bound to enjoy your stay here if you like traditional style and relaxed surroundings.

Room Tip: Red room is great and I think one of the quieter rooms if you want to avoid noise from the pub downs...
