Dropped in for a quick drink with guests from overseas and found staff very welcoming and even encouraged my rather over excited Americans to visit the loos! They loved all the paint effects and took pictures. Bar had a good atmosphere and great gin choice

Beautifully appointed for casual dinning. Broad menu and good quality food. Service usually good although at busy times can deteriorate a little. Wine list disappointing and expensive. Recommended but don't expect a cheap meal.More

  • This restaurant is at The George Of Stamford
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.
