Went today for a quick lunch with my 15 month old son. Staff were so lovely and helpful. Nice and clean place, the food was probably the best meal I've ever had in Dereham and surrounding areas!! I had smoked ham fritters with Bingham blue cheese dip and chutney and warm bread board to start with which my little one... More

Visited here this afternoon, what a pleasant family pub. Me my husband and two kids arrived 20 minutes early but was greeted at the door and seated right away no problems. We were seated in the conservatory which was nice and light. Our kids tend to be quite fussy at times not wanting a roast dinner but they had other... More

The hotel is located on a busy corner/junction on the outskirts of Dereham. Traffic noise can be a problem. We had problems with the toilet cistern and ended up moving to a different room. Better furnished, 4 poster bed but still facing the street. The bar is fine and the food was good. The staff were very friendly and helpful.... More

Arrived at mid-day for a coffee and decided to have lunch. I am gluten and dairy free intolerant for which they cater. I had a lovely mushroom risotto and my husband had crab salad. The servings are very generous, very friendly staff and the service is very good. The price of the food is reasonable. The menu is quite varied... More

We stayed for one night following a family wedding and had room number 9.....above the kitchen! All night you could hear the motors cutting in and out for the chillers etc below. Then the kitchen staff early morning and the extractor fan, the toilets flushing in adjacent rooms, terrible nights sleep!

We decided to go here for lunch on a Thursday, we arrived from a very wet Dereham High Street at 12.00 just as they started serving. Drinks arrived promptly with menu following. We took Potato and Leek Soup followed by Haddock and Chips from the Lunch menu. We were beginning to feel that our soup was taking too long but... More

Would highly recommend The George Hotel, the staff were very helpful, nothing seemed too much trouble. Food was lovely. Could not fault anything. A family restaurant, or perfect for a date night! Will definitely go again. Thank you!

First class cuisine and menu, the restaurant needs to be booked to avoid disappointment. We were a family group and choose separate starters and mains but could not fault them on their high standards. The selection of sweets were plentiful. I would think that the chef is very much appreciated by the owners as people will keep returning here. 5... More
