Whilst the staff were extremely friendly and obliging, we did feel we were in a Fawlty Towers sketch! Our drinks took over 30 mins to arrive and our food well over an hour. When we arrived the restaurant was not busy either. The table next...More

Decided to give The George another go, on our last summer visit, we were seated with menus and then forgotten. After 15-20 mins, decided to give up. This time we were more optimistic, quiet cold February Sunday. Once shown to the table, which was clean...More

Generally we go a couple of time a year and have previously had good experiances. Unfortunatly this trip I think our timing was unfortunate as there was a wedding just about to start and perhaps the chefs focus was else where for our main courses....More

Only stopped here for a drink but the hotel is lovely. There is a fantastic seating area outside overlooking the water. Would recommend at least for a drink, not cheap but worth it.

We had an excellent lunch on a Saturday, celebrating a birthday. Fabulous food (we had the skate which was cooked perfectly), and the portion size was just right for a lunch. The service was good, attentive, but not intrusive. And a fabulous view across the...More

Can you just have a drink on the terrace without ordering food?

yes most definitely - beautiful garden by the sea edge to sit and enjoy view and boating. nice seating
Your Food Hygiene rating has fallen from 4 to ZERO - requires urgent action - in just over one year. The management of food hygiene issues was given a comment of 'little confidence' in the report. What steps have you taken to put in place a robust management of this important area? In addition, your comments on your zero rating gloss over the basic food hygiene concerns raised. You refer to your 'spotless' kitchen despite the report calling for more detailed cleaning required and highlighting a vacuum packing machine for cooked food being placed alongside a similar machine for raw food in a dirty area of the kitchen. What steps have you taken to remedy these and other issues of basic hygiene raised in the report so that you will be ready for a new full inspection which must happen soon?

This is not a question for Trip Advisor reviewers but is for the establishment itself. I therefore have no comment to make.
