We had previously enjoyed a drink in this cosy pub, so decided to return for a meal. We felt it was overpriced. The pie was acceptable but the veg was over cooked and soggy, we were also disappointed to find that not all the pies are on the lunchtime menu. On the positive side the staff are pleasant and it...

We had heard that The George was famous for it's pies, so were really looking forward to visiting whilst we were down in Weymouth with family and friends. Parking isn't great, very limited but there is a huge P&D car park across the road. When we arrived with our large party, they showed us to the lovely outside area where... More

we love the georgie porgy pies (I think that's what they say), huge variety and really good portions, we like steak and ale best but don't tell everyone they may run out; really fresh veg and choice of potatoes. Home cooked so wait whilst they cook it enjoy their reasonably priced wine or a pint. Very busy in school summer... More

Went here twice for an evening meal during a recent stay in West Bay. First night had the Pie and a burger, absolutely brilliant all home-made with tons of taste filling. The chips weren't the best but the sautéed potatoes are excellent. Second night had fresh fish (sea bass) and cod 'n' chips. Great sea bass, poor cod, batter was... More

We had a good lunch with surprisingly little waiting as the pub looked very busy in both bar and restaurant. Plenty of meat served from the carvery (small and standard sizes) and staff were surprisingly courteous. Worth a return visit.

Very rude staff upon arrival adamant we couldn't be served until 12. (It was 11:56am). Pub wasn't even busy. Seated 10 minutes later. Given sticky plastic menu. Not much choice on that but specials board good. 50 minutes after ordering finally got food. O.K. Not in a hurry to go back.

We stayed at The George for 4 nights ... When I booked the room I asked if we could have a twin room overlooking the harbour & they were able to accommodate that request even though the room was actually a double. The room was clean & tidy with a lovely shower in the bathroom. The hotel is ideally situated... More

We had three rooms all facing the harbour, so the view was lovely. The rooms were well appointed and spotlessly clean, the bathrooms had been recently renovated to a very high standard. The room with the four poster bed had a large window seat, great for watching all the activity outside. Despite being in the centre of West Bay it... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The George is located on the Harbour in the heart of West Bay, Dorset. This striking Georgian building stands proudly on the harbourside of this popular fishing village, made famous by being the backdrop to the recent BBC Tv series "Broadchurch".The hotel has recently been taken over (01/10/2013) by Chris and Kim and they are busy welcoming guests new and old to The George. The hotel is open all day and serves fresh locally sourced home cooked from the restaurant, including daily specials using fish sourced from the fishing boats in the harbour. . The bar serves a good selection of wines and exceptional real ales from Palmers Brewery, located a mile away in Bridport.There is plenty to do in the area, with several of breathtaking coastal walks and leisurely strolls along the beach front.There are several charter boats waiting to take keen sea fishing visitors, or a Rib taxi that will take you to nearby Lyme Regis and return a couple of hours later. Whether you are looking for a adrenalin packed weekend, or simply a relaxing break by the beautiful harbour, The George Hotel is the place to stay. Chris and Kim look forward to welcoming you to The George soon. ... more   less
