A great variety of menu options and very accommodating staff who are quick to serve you. Ingredients are fresh and cooked to perfection. Family friendly however the "kids room" isn't that great. Vending machines that trigger tantrums from the kids and not much else in the way of entertainment. Kids room aside the George could not be faulted. Make sure... More

Food at the George is delicious. The speciality mains are not as big as other mains but are delicious. I highly recommend

This was a great find for us! Food that is reasonably priced, great specials and beer selection - you cannot ask for more. Bookings recommend during holidays but absolutely worth it. Great services, friendly staff

I have been to The George Tavern on quite a number of occasions for a quiet drink and for many meals. The place has a friendly family feel. The staff are pleasant and helpful.

Met up for a school friends reunion. Able to sit in one of the side lounges which was great...away from the music some could talk. Had dinner here too. Most of the meals served at our table were good quality.

I tried to go to this bistro on a Friday night but, there was no table. It was packed and some people were waiting for the others to finish their food , so they could sit. That's how popular this restaurant is. I tried one week night again. It was still busy but, we booked in advance. Beautiful food. I... More
