We ate in the Garden Room last night. The food is always good and the bill is always frightening but the place has that "je ne sais quoi". Its old and quirky and at Christmas it's just a joy to visit. Staff are brilliant too.

Excellent dinner in the Garden Room at the George. Atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, service was first class and food was really good. Make sure you leave room for dessert - the trifle was delicious. Would definitely recommend.

Description
A magnificent oak-panelled space is the fine dining setting at The George Hotel of Stamford, one of England's greatest coaching inns. A mix of regular locals and hotel guests can always be found relaxing at bare oak tables beneath an eye-catching hand-painted ceiling. In summer, or on mild nights, they like to sit outside under the heated canopy in the ivy-clad courtyard. Open for grand lunches and dinner, the George Hotel Restaurant serves traditional yet imaginative English dishes, specialising in seafood. Lighter daytime dishes such as Dover sole are superceeded at night with heartier meals such as rack of lamb with fresh herbs and redcurrant jelly, and roast English beef carved at the table on a silver trolley. Accompanied by traditional trimmings, of course.
