We had an excellent lunch for our staff last week. I was disappointed when they told us the day before that it would only be the Bar menu, but Mark and his chef made a great effort and put on some dishes from their new menu. Delicious! Thank you for your hospitality.

This is a small 'boutique' hotel - with a great future. In six months, under new ownership, it has changed into the warm and welcoming heart of this charming small market town. It has a perfect location. The downstairs space lends itself to being a hub: comfy chairs and sofas, a roaring log fire, excellent coffee and a great restaurant....

Thank you so much for our recent stay with you - we were here as a family, and Mark went to great lengths to accommodate us for a surprise late supper even though the restaurant was fully booked. Comfortable beds, excellent breakfast, really good value for money - we wish you all the best.

We recently visited the George for a family Christmas meal. Our party size was 12 which included young children and I have to say we had a truly wonderful time.

Although only staying one night I felt valued at check in. Breakfast was very nice but I would say if you offer breakfast starting at 0730 serving it at 0751 isn't helpful but I accept it's a difficult balance to freshly cook food. Clean tidy room and an overall very pleasant stay

We had a Christmas lunch at the George and I have to say it was a mediocre experience. The starter was quite pleasant but with no imagination but the main was supposed to be a turkey meal, very over cooked, like a piece of leather, 4 very small roast potatoes and the vegetables were served on a cold plate!
