“Treat For A Tuesday”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

On arrival I was greeted and directed to the bar,where I had arranged to meet up with friends.The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Didn't have to wait to be served at the bar. When my friends arrived we had to relocate as there were six of us.I ordered off the specials menu. We took our time to order and the staff were patient and pleasant. The food arrived hot and well presented.I opted for the Vegetable Korma Pancake.A good choice. Didn't have a sweet,but the others couldn't resist. We all agreed that the meals picked were very good and would definitely recommend The George to others.

Thank you for your review following you recent visit to our Hotel.

I am delighted that you and your friends enjoyed our food and hospitality. Every Tuesday should contain a treat and it’s great to know that we hit the spot!
Chef has some delicious dishes on our Specials Board which changes frequently in addition to our Bar Meal Menu, so plenty of choice to cater for all tastes!

Thank you again for this most positive feedback which the team will be so happy to hear and we look forward to welcoming you back to The George for another Tuesday treat soon.....please note other treat dates are available.

14 of us had an excellent lunch on Sunday 19th January. Our ages ranged from 15 to 87 and everyone was extremely happy with the meal, service and price. You are able to chose from the Bar Menu as well as the Restaurant Sunday lunch menu and this catered for all our tastes. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and we will definitely make a return visit.

We had Sunday lunch at The George (in the restaurant not the carvery) and it was most enjoyable, the surroundings were pleasant, the staff very nice and efficiant and the food was exceptional, especially as we were a party of 14. The meat was tender and plenty of it, the veg just right, and the starters and sweet very well presented, plus very good value.

Room Tip: They do a carvery in an ajoining building, but we were in the restaurant, this offers a bit more cho...

I went to this event with my sister and friend with husbands. The meal which we had pre chosen was excellent. The atmosphere was great and the extras provided to entertain us during the run up to midnight was first class. For the price this was great value for money. We also stayed overnight and the cost of this was perfect with breakfast part of the deal. We would certainly do this again. Thank you staff for making it a memorable evening

Room Tip: 101 is the best room as has been refurbished well. I believe others are to follow.

My wife and i and normaly another member of the family have been to the hotel before and have always enjoyed the carvery that they offer on a Sunday, i must say that carverys can be and offen are a bit of a flop, just warm food and soggy vegetables , but not so at the George hotel, you are offered a small selection of starters, the choice of two freshly roasted meats, served with a very good selection of fresh vegetables and handmade Yorkshire puddings, if you still have room they offer you a selection of desserts.
The staff i have found to be very friendly, and may i say that you will have to travel a long way to find better value, well worth a trip.

Hotel room was large and the "double" bed was 2 singles zipped together. The staff were excellent and very friendly and willing to help. The room was really quiet and nice and dark and we had a good nights' sleep. Breakfast was good with local produce rather than cheap standard sausages. I understand that they are updating some of their rooms - the décor was a little tired in our room, but it did not detract from the stay.
