    Our recent visit to your restaurant on Bank Holiday Monday was notably below expectations, prompting me to detail the experience for a full refund request. Initially excited for a meal, the empty restaurant upon arrival was our first sign of an unusual day ahead. We have been coming here for years, and it was always packed. We were seated and proceeded to order starters: baked camembert and calamari. Unfortunately, the camembert had no seasoning and was served with very hard stale pieces of baguette, while the calamari was underwhelming in both appearance and portion, despite their prices of £8.50 and £16. For mains, three cod and one chicken schnitzel were ordered. The schnitzel was served about 15 minutes after due to it not being ordered their end to the kitchen, which we were only told after 10 minutes of waiting and chasing it. One cod dish was so inedible due to poor quality it was basically all gristle . The presentation of these dishes was also below the standard. As if it was just chucked on the plate. No care at all. To address our issues, one complimentary dessert was offered, yet the profiteroles served were stale and again poorly presented. Throughout, a young staff member, age 14, had to manage our service with all the issues, and not once did the management intervene. It was revealed that a recent takeover by a brewery did little to account for the diminished quality and service. Given the poor quality of food, lack of proper management, and overall beyond dissatisfaction, I am requesting a full refund of £91. This experience was not reflective of the high standards we expect when going out for a meal. I trust you have my details, and I await a reply. Nicki Richardson-Aktolga

    The currys were delicious and the cold drinks were delivered promptly. Half of our group chose the Vietnamese curry and half the king prawn and aubergine curry. It was a shame to trout was replaced by cod so we chose the prawn curry as a second choice after the trout dish. It took a while to collect our order and it was a cold day and we became quite cold as we waited a long time (40 mins approx) for food to arrive. We did intend to have deserts but since two members of our party are elderly it was too ocld to stay - a shame. We asked for a quiet table and should not have asked for the table near the window - the music was low but the ambient noise was too much for the two wearing hearing aids - our choice of table - next time the corner would be better. Service was friendly and the pub is usually lovely

    We booked for Sunday lunch, but unfortunately the food took an age to arrive - well over an hour from first sitting down. Service was fine and the food ok'ish but everything was very slow. It wasn't that busy either.

    We had a Sunday family lunch. Prime ribs were delicious. Great to have a choice from the menu rather than just a Sunday roast option. Service was good, staff friendly and attentive. Not a gastro pub, a well laid out ‘local feel’ where sitting near the fire place or eating in the restaurant will be equally enjoyable. Highly recommended.

    Hospitality outstanding, atmosphere outstanding only slight comment would be that out of 8 dining with all the different meals, all that had veg all had same veg ie. Cabbage. Luckily we all liked cabbage but some colour on the plate would have lifted the appearance/experience of the food. Otherwise the night out was fab. We’ll definitely be back.

    We came to the George for my Husband's 80th Birthday on a Sunday 25th February. We came with his son, daughter in law and two grandchildren. The food was superb and there was a great choice for the kids too. All the courses had a really good choice. The roast dinner my husband had was really lovely, so he reported. The grilled cod I had was so delicious. Everyone enjoyed the food and we all had a wonderful time. Grant, who served us was brilliant, and we had some real fun with him, he also kindly took a photograph of all of us. Thank you to e veryone who made it such a special day.

    The food and service was great. The problem we had was that a set of 4 people at the next table were extremely noisy so much so that we could not carry out a conversation so spoilt our visit.

    this is our second time visiting and it was also the first time in almost 30 years of Valentine's Days that I hadn't cooked for my wife at home. Initial concern was that the maître d' was stressed as he seemed to be breaking in two young lads. I cannot lie that I was a little worried but as the night progressed the "boys" proved they were up to the task and the maître d' was being overly protective of their restaurant. But what you really want to know is what about the food, the service, the ambience and would we go back again. It was a fixed Valentine's Day menu which was full of variety but obviously not a la carte. Without going into too much detail, I can only do a max of two courses so there was no flexibility (so I missed the starter), but my wife went for the beetroot and goat's cheese tortellini to start with and loved the plate - she would have licked it clean if we had been at home! Next up was cod loin on a Welsh rarebit with smashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables for my wife (again lapped up - I would have liked to try it but she refused to share) and I had a butternut squash and lentil filo Wellington with wilted broccoli, cabbage, roast potatoes and gravy. Wow is all I can say! Really tasty (note to ask Chef for the recipe please) and equally clean plated. Dessert was less promising as it was a chocolate sharing plate (the profiterole element had not materialised to the distress of the maître d') and, as indicated earlier, one of the party is averse to sharing! However, by this point we were stuffed so most went into a carry home. However, as a collector of brownie recipes, the brownie was light, moist and well constructed and the chocolate "slice" which was a bitter chocolate heavy mousse on a ultra-thin sponge, was well constructed and full of flavour. The chocolate was front and centre and not an afterthought! The vanilla ice-cream was made with real vanilla and velvety smooth! All for £34 per person and yes, we will be back again!

    I visited on Saturday with a group of four couples. We all had a great time, and by the sound around us, so did the many other people in the restaurant. I’ve read the reviews from the last several months (since publican Ren took the pub over) and I really don’t understand how The George got so many poor reviews. There are too many to blame them on a couple of disgruntled diners, but our experience was genuinely 5 stars. I noticed that many of the poor reviews were in Dec 23, so maybe the staff were overloaded during the holiday season. Hopefully, they’ve put that behind them, and by our experience, they have. Our food was timely and delicious. Portions were perfect. There is a Mediterranean feel to many dishes, probably owing to Ren’s Mediterranean background. I had a Moroccan lamb special, which was excellent in every respect. The staff were attentive, efficient and friendly. There was a great buzz in the pub. We all left with the intention of returning for another meal soon. We’ve added this to our list of “go-to” pubs. Hopefully, those who had less than acceptable experiences will give it another try. I’m hoping to see The George around for a long time.

    Decided to take advantage of the lunch time January deal. As we hadn’t eaten here in quite some time it was a great chance to sample the menu. We were pleased with our meal and the service and was very tempted with main menu to come back for an evening meal. The mini crumble and coffee was lovely. People around us also seemed very happy with their meals. Always a good sign.

    The food was excellent as was the service. Several large groups waiting in the bar area when we arrived so difficult to get through but efficiently greeted and shown to our table. The pies have shortcrust pastry all round - so much nicer than a puff cap! They have ice creams even though it's not on the menu so ask if you want some. Don't bother with the 'special occasion option on Open Table as no one looks at that.

    We celebrated a family birthday over Sunday lunch at The George. The staff were great, contacting me before we came to get a pre-order for our party of 13. This made lunch a relaxed affair. The roasts were tasty with good size portions quality meat and fresh veg. Mini puds with coffee were a popular although, for me, the profiteroles were dissapointing. We were seated in the larger room which was full of beams and character, warm and welcoming. The staff were great friendly and helpful. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.

    Took 40 minutes to be seated even though we had Christmas Day reservations. Serving staff was disorganized and untrained (but kind), food was moderate quality but nearly what you’d expect for 90GBP per plate. They seemed overwhelmed and unprepared.

    We have visited the George a few times and loved the food and experience, so we decided to book for Christmas Day. It was sadly disappointing… you pre book the items you want yet we was told that parts of our turkey Christmas Day lunch had “ran out”. How can this be?!?? Was we offered a discount or an apology? Nope! There was a long wait between starter and main course, I think a lot of people around us were frustrated but trying not to ruin Christmas. Tables around us were leaving and had finished their Christmas meal when we was still waiting on our mains. We had plans in the afternoon/evening and had to delay them which was frustrating as the booking went well over the allocated time. Once the food arrived, it was all lovely, however the wait was just unacceptable.

    Sad to say that I was disappointed with the meal last night. At 17.30 on Friday 22nd December to find we were the only people in the restaurant was a bad sign to begin with and it remained that way until we finished our 3 course meal and left. Last time I had a meal at The George the portions were huge and the meal in general was delightful. Last night the portions were very small, my first taste of steak was all fat and worst of all, when we left, we left hungry and we shouldn’t feel that way after a 3 course meal. I wouldn’t say overall that the food was of low quality but I wished there was more of it and a better steak. I also had to ask for a steak knife, it wasn’t like there was anyone else there to serve. With the £100+ we paid for the meal I feel very cheated and we would have had a much better meal for the money in the Harvester. I understand that The George has been taken over by new management, and I’m sad to say that I think the quality and quantity of food has diminished as a result. We got ourselves a KFC wrap on the way home.

    Unfortunately on this occasion it was very disappointing. One of the meals came out with 3 prawns on it when that was the main ingredient. Asked for bamboo shoots to be taken out but they were left in. When we queried it, we were told they can't be taken out as the food was brought in. At this point, we asked why we were not told and we just received a sorry and was offered a free drink. My friend was drinking water so we declined. The deserts were mixed up as well but, when we left we did ask for the meal to be deducted which they did. Sadly on this occasion it was a disappointing visit

    Was disappointed with the cod , fish was tasteless and found myself adding more and more salt. Sautéed potatoes weren’t the best, should have been cut smaller and a couple were too firm to eat. Lazy way for sautéed potatoes I feel. Didn’t really enjoy the main meal.

    Food was amazing. The waiters/waitresses could use a bit of extra training as the service wasn’t great! Asked for the bill 3 times before actually getting it, asked for spoons for our desserts as we didn’t have any and we got given soup spoons - maybe teach them what spoon is for what! There was a large table at the other end of the restaurant and when they left, we saw the waiters/waitresses examining all the glasses to see if they had been used or not which was weird! They were young and just need some guidance… however they were always polite. This wouldn’t put us off coming again as the food was so great, it was quite quiet considering it was evening time on a Friday in December which was quite nice as not what you would normally expect. The food was quick to come and reasonably priced considering the standard of it. Would definitely come again.

    Busy with Christmas traffic but drinks and menus arrived without delay. Food is gastro style, wholesome, hot but there were delays in kitchen probably to be expected this time of year
