Description: The Green Bar and Bistro, set inside the Whipper-In Hotel on the Old Market Square in Oakham, is a relaxed restaurant with a cosy and authentic charm. Originally a 17th century coaching inn, the hotel retains its period appeal with warm open fires and comfy armchairs, and is only a short drive from Uppingham and Burghley House. The George Bar and Bistro has a cheery dining room with wooden floors and fresh flowers which is popular with locals and hotel guests for lunch and informal evening meals. Signature dishes at The George include the braised lamb shank with a minted pea purée; the Oriental salmon with egg noodles, stir-fried vegetables and soy sauce; and the roasted vegetable lasagne.

“Poor value”
Reviewed 1 June 2010

We booked a table for six in the restaurant for lunch but when we arrived we were put in the Bistro, which was like a cheap cafe, as we were the only party to book for the restaurant..
Some of the food was a joke and the rest was pretty poor for the prices charged.
I must say the staff tried their best.
We shall definitely not be returning.
2 course meal £20.
