This weekend we attended a wedding in Oxford where the reception was in Dorchester. The George inn was convenient, with its views of Dorchester Abbey opposite. Our room was comfortable and pleasant with old furniture, I would maybe describe as French shabby chic looking! One thing was fabulous- the power shower nearly knocked me over with its strength-what with my... More

So.... we arrived and it was a bit chaotic, we knew there was a private function and we would be eating in the bar so no problem. We were shown to a nice table and everything seemed lovely. A lady came and took the order and then we waited and waited. The starter eventually turned up and it was great.... More

Stayed for two nights and enjoyed both of them. We were given a spacious room over looking the courtyard complete with four poster comfortable bed. Dinner was a good steak and cooked just the way I asked. Breakfast was good quality and plentiful. My view a good priced choice

12 of us stayed the weekend at The George. The manager was excellent (and hard-working!), and single-handedly served us at dinner on the Friday night and for two breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The dinner was very good indeed: the fish cake and egg starter was outstanding, as was the hanging melee of fish. Everyone enjoyed the meal, and... More

Very unfriendly landlord - if he doesn't like customers - what is he doing in the hospitality business? They weren't busy but we waited a long long time for our food, and it was not very good when it eventually came.

We were walking the Thames Path and needed a place to stay between Goring and Oxford. Dorchester fit the bill nicely. We arrived at the George around 4pm. It's easy to find as it's on the main street and opposite the beautiful abbey. There was only one person on duty when we arrived and he was also serving in the... More

Awful hotel. Bad customer service. No understanding of residents bookings. Need a full time customer service advisor.

Visited whilst staying in the village, to have light dinner and drinks. Great atmosphere, when we first arrived a girl was singing which was a nice surprise, so we had a pint and a listen. Good beer, and good selection of wine.we then had dinner, which as we'd had a massive lunch elsewhere was a light affair but very very... More

Sunday dinner menu is limited to roast dinners. The food was just ok, nothing special. Nice pub though.
