The service and decor were great. It's quirky, with live plants everywhere. I had a steak, which was OK but as it was sirloin, not too tasty - not rump offered. The other restaurant goers seemed very happy and there was a good vibe.

Loved all the Christmas decorations and the trees in the garden. We had a lovely dinner with friends midweek, busy as usual in the Garden Room.

I have had wonderful food at this hotel but am annoyed by their pretentious and inconsistent attitude towards technology. You can sit anywhere and use a mobile phone or read a kindle but if you dare to open a laptop computer you face hostility. You are reluctantly permitted to use the laptop but have to move to the naughty room... More

I apologise if we have been hostile towards you, it is never our intention to make you feel like that. We prefer to keep our lounges and bars laptop free. We have a fully equipped business centre where we can also offer working lunches if you want to work quietly, but when we can, we would always try and offer... More

If you want a restaurant where things are done properly then this is the place to visit. We would say it's the best place to eat in the area. We had dinner in the the oak restaurant and it was superb. The food was cooked to perfection while the waiters and waitresses couldn't have been more attentive. The wine list... More

particularly nice in winter if you can get a seat by the open fire. It's popular so it can be hard to find a good seat. Lovely Christmas decorations gave it loads of atmosphere

We visited the George for afternoon tea as an anniversary treat for my sister and brother-in-law. The George is a wonderful old building, every room full of character with lots of nooks and crannies. Bedecked with Christmas decorations inside and out, it was the perfect setting for a celebration. The staff were so helpful and attentive and the afternoon tea... More

We stopped here "on spec" for a lunch on our way driving North. Very impressed by the hotel from the walk from the car park through the garden to the hotel entrance, and the interiors throughout the hotel itself.

Lived here for 3 months on moving to the area 30 years ago. Excellent restaurant and bar. Food consistently good and wine list very comprehensive. Period atmosphere - all genuine.

Superb. 11 out of 10 for food and service. Thank you to the George for a great evening. The fillet of beef was cooked to perfection, served with fondant potato, spinach, broccoli cheese and deep fried battered courgettes. I am suffering from over indulgence, but it was well worth it.

It's been a couple of years since we last visited the George's Garden Restaurant and the standard hasn't slipped. We had the crab and a salad off the Buffet with a side of large chips. Crab can be disappointing whether you buy it complete and pick it yourself or get it ready picked. So often it isn't fresh or it... More

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.
