We stayed at the George Hotel for a week end and really enjoyed it. Beds (we had a large twin room), were good and so was breakfast, with full English and a choice of continental which I (being Italian) highly appreciate and not often find in Britain. Some of the features (like the bathroom) are not top of the range,... More

Our daughter visited unexpectedly one evening and we decided we'd eat out. Our usual favourite restaurant was (unusually) closed so we had to think of another place. We had never eaten at The George before so thought we'd give it a try. We phoned, booked a table for half an hour's time, and arrived on time. The receptionist greeted us... More

Ate lunch here after being let down elsewhere. The bar menu was imaginative, the service good and the food tasty. Tables are rather close together but they weren't too busy when we visited. This old building has been cleverly renovated to provide plenty of space. Worth a visit.

Unfortunately the George didn't do anything to "write home about" in relation to their mid-week Christmas lunch offering........just all rather bland and unexciting

The breakfast, a great choice from buffet to a cooked meal. English breakfast as always, try the smoked haddock and poached egg.. Evening meal was pre- ordered, from traditional roast, the vegatarian option was not a success with me.

The experience in staying in this hotel was memorable. The hotel is conveniently located at the heart of the town. The hotel building has a lot of character. You can see the old and new mixture of it's design. We were courteously greeted by the hotel staff who always wears their smile and had the chance to talk to it's... More
