The food was very overrated & overpriced for the poor quality. Small portions of meat, poorly cooked veg, very little gravy & all served on cold plates. Desert was supposed to be Apple & Blaccurrant Crumble but no Blackcurrents & not informed so that we could make an alternative choice.My family had travelled quite a distance to meet up here...

Dear Bngharrop, I appreciate your frank comments, some of which we spoke about yesterday. I too am disappointed we didn't meet or exceed your expectations, as we have earned (over many years) a very good reputation for our food. The negatives that you mention obviously outweighed the positives we also spoke about, so I can only apologise. I did speak... More

6 of us went for food mid-week in the evening. As others have said, a real country pub with a great atmosphere. When we went, it was quite busy with locals & quite a few dogs in the bar area which helped make the overall ambience great. We ate in the small separate dining area and the food was really... More

simple roast meats baguette with a roast spud and gravy at 4.00 pm Sunday, can be very packed earlier, but meats were well rested and very tender the optimum time to enjoy. good ale to wash away the winter sky and warming atmosphere. cannot complain.

On a very cold night the George was a typically welcoming English Pub. A warm welcome from the staff and locals and dogs. We had steak and chips, an ordinary pub meal presented well and tasting good. The homemade damson sorbet was delightful. Fires were warming and we could talk to each other without shouting. We will return.

George licensee Peter Graham runs a proper English pub and gives customers a proper warm second to none welcome whether you are a familiar face, or someone who has just walked through the door for the first time.

We went here with my Sister and Brother-in-law on a Sunday lunch time. It's advisable to book as it gets very busy (always a good sign). The inside is lovely and homely and because it was busy there was a good vibe around the pub. The food was delicious. Two of us had the roast dinner, and the other two,... More

Ate here one Saturday evening as a group of 7. Staff are incredibly friendly, food is truly amazing, and there is a wide selection of local beer and cider. It is quite possibly the finest pub/restaurant in the local area.

Description
The George is an award-winning, traditional, family-owned and operated 17th century village pub. We serve fresh food prepared from local ingredients, including game and foraged foods. We grow our own veg, herbs and fruit and make our own ice creams as well (try our damson ice cream with plums from the back garden). We love cooking fresh fish and seafood from the south coast and our locally produced meat is mouth-wateringly good. We have two craft beers produced exclusively for us, three other guest ales and eight local ciders. With a lovely beer garden for the summer and a log fire in the winter, families and dog-walkers are always welcome. We have four en-suite bedrooms for b&b and a multi-purpose self-contained function room and skittles alley. But most of all there is "... ALWAYS A FRIENDLY WELCOME."
