My review is about a Penrith institution, morning coffee at the George, which I have enjoyed for twenty years (almost since Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745). The Hotel and its public rooms have an olde worlde charm which is increasingly rare. the public lounge area is comfortable, warm and well served by traditional staff. The coffee, teas and cakes are wonderful. I am talking myself into another visit shortly!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The George Hotel is something of a local treasure, situated in the pretty market town of Penrith, perfectly located to explore the Eden valley with Ullswater and the Lake District just a few miles away. The lounge is popular with locals for morning coffee and cake, lunches and afternoon teas. The 2 AA Rosette Devonshire Restaurant's silver and ruby red decor, truly sets the scene for a superb dining experience, with menu’s that focus on simple, fresh, local produce. For more casual drinking and dining, relax in the vibrant Dappers Bar within the hotel. ... more less
