The George is a refreshing change from some of the other more country style pubs in the area. Service was definitely the winner here - it was terrific on all fronts. Food was good and wholesome but it took some time to come out and the beef burger was well and truly overcooked. Drink prices were reasonable, not the cheapest... More

Seated quickly and the service was very friendly. I ordered the 300 gram Scotch fillet and it was cooked to perfection. Soft, juicy and tasty. It was perfect. The chips were steaming hot and crunchy and the vegetables were also cooked to perfection and there was plenty of them. My wife had the Monday night chicken snitty. It was huge... More

We booked a table for a family dinner and had a really great meal. The food was all excellent and the service was brilliant. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. We have been before and had good meals but this was excellent.

Visited just before Xmas with heaps of construction going on next door. Could not hear a thing from the construction and had a very pleasant time. The staff were very pleasant with a very friendly approach to the customer. Great service and great food. Will be happy to visit again.

A great variety of menu options and very accommodating staff who are quick to serve you. Ingredients are fresh and cooked to perfection. Family friendly however the "kids room" isn't that great. Vending machines that trigger tantrums from the kids and not much else in the way of entertainment. Kids room aside the George could not be faulted. Make sure... More

This was a great find for us! Food that is reasonably priced, great specials and beer selection - you cannot ask for more. Bookings recommend during holidays but absolutely worth it. Great services, friendly staff
