A really lovely pub, so easy to get to after a short trip on the ferry from Southampton. The food was delicious, the staff friendly and attentive and the views from the dining room over looking the sea were great! Definitely worth a visit.

Thank-you for your review, Laupres. We are delighted that you enjoyed the recently re-styled bar lounge facilities at The George.

When combined with delicious food, attentive service and a roaring log fire overlooking the waters edge of the Solent, this provides a perfect place to relax.

We look forward to welcoming you back to The George.

Best wishes

Forget slick chain hotels - step back in time to a truly historic hotel in a charming old fashioned seaside setting. Tasteful decor, lovely original features and friendly staff made our New Years visit most enjoyable. No private parking at all. Watch parking in the square - the traffic warden hovered by our car hoping for a kill 15 minutes before our ticket was up!!

Nicole showed us to our rooms, we were a group of four and she was so lovely and friendly. The rooms were nice and had sea views, although the weather was poor the view was still great. We had a geat breakfast each morning, eggs benadict was great, good coffee and a wide selection offered. The bed was comfortable with quality linen and pillows. Thank you for a great stay andwe will be back

Just had a great well prepared christmas luncheon here with the family, really good christmas seasonal menu and excellently executed by the head chef . I visit the island often throughout the year from London and often struggle to find venues on the island with great food, i.e. a London standard food. Now i have found this restaurant I will of course return for further enjoyable meals.

A tastefully decorated Dickensian Christmas scene with the flagstone entrance lobby. Service at lunch could have been more attentive, I found that i was having to catch the eye of the staff for service rather than a natural process of them watch the movement of the room, this become more obvious when the second sitting started when waiting staff seemed to disappear completely . More training for waiting staff required, and judging by other reviews i have have read I'm not the first to point this out.

The guest toilets on the ground floor needs improvement they were more befitting of a workers or pub washroom rather than that of a quality establishment - Your secret to your future success will be with both your quality food, service and quality of offering - Overall good but I'm afraid not prefect yet...
