With a colleague I arrived at about 6.30pm after a long drive from Cambridge. The George is welcoming: it is like stepping into a friend’s country home.
After check-in, which was a delightful experience, I was shown to my room (No 10), at the back of the hotel. Whilst in size it was modest it was very comfortable and the free wifi worked well. Mobile phone signal is a bit variable, probably due to the thick sandstone walls.
We had a drink in the bar and chose our dinner: the hotel was quiet and service was exemplary. I’d chosen as a starter a black pudding encased quail egg served with warm Foie Gras with to follow partridge with seasonal vegetables and a poached pear. An elderflower sorbet was served between courses. All I can say is that I’ve rarely eaten better and at the price I’ve often paid more for far less enjoyable food.
Breakfast was excellent with thick slices of really good bacon: a great start to the day.
I’ll go back and I’d like to go with my wife for a short break. There are few hotel I’ve visited on business where Id like to do that.
Any negatives? Not really but when booking do specify a room at the back of the house unless you don’t mind the sound of traffic.
