Although I am based in London, I visit Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, about every 3 weeks, and always manage to lunch out at least once during my stay. I must admit, our (my friend and I) usual eating venue is "Salty`s", but for various reasons, we have had lunch in the "George" on quite a few occasions.
The restaurant should be packed out every day, unfortunately it is not, I really can not understand why, superbly situated overlooking the harbour, with outside seating for those who enjoy wasps etc whilst they are eating, sorry, not for me. The "George" has a first class chef, presenting very imaginative and very tasty dishes, a first class wine list, I have always found the staff very attentive and charming. I have read other reviews of this establishment, and they complain about the price, but surely, £40 to £50 per head including wine in a decent restaurant is not unreasonable these days. Trust me, the "George" is well worth a visit.
