Excellent food - we came at their thursday curry evening - Wow, better than Indian! Stayed B&B - and they have done a great job in modernising the en suite bedrooms. The owners, Peter & Veryan, with their friendly staff are most helpful.

A brilliant Pub serving some of the best food I have had. The warm welcome that you receive from the staff when you arrive is awesome and the young people that do the table service are wonderful. The food was incredible and the pies are to die for. One of the best meals I have had anywhere.

A lovely friendly, family run pub, loads of traditional dishes, but the steak and chips a good choice - my husband always has this when we eat there. I do love the dog show they hold each summer in the pub garden - a must for any animal lovers.

We loved the George primarily for its welcoming staff - particularly the landlord who made the effort to come and say hello to all the punters every time we were there, and the landlady who was also friendly. The place is homely and comfortable and dog friendly. Somewhere you can easily while away an afternoon with a pint (or more)... More

We were staying at the Premier Inn a couple of miles away and looking for somewhere to eat on Good Friday evening. This is a friendly local pub with a good menu and a great atmosphere. We all opted for homemade steak pie and without exception we all commented that these were the best we've ever tasted. With good ingredients... More

Thank you for the comments, Kaz P. The pies are so popular and we're glad you liked yours! We use locally-reared meat (two mles away) and our own beer brewed just eight miles away. And we make it all ourselves too. Do visit again if you are ever down -- and next time you can stay with us! Best regards,... More

Description
The George is an award-winning, traditional, family-owned and operated 17th century village pub. We serve fresh food prepared from local ingredients, including game and foraged foods. We grow our own veg, herbs and fruit and make our own ice creams as well (try our damson ice cream with plums from the back garden). We love cooking fresh fish and seafood from the south coast and our locally produced meat is mouth-wateringly good. We have two craft beers produced exclusively for us, three other guest ales and eight local ciders. With a lovely beer garden for the summer and a log fire in the winter, families and dog-walkers are always welcome. We have four en-suite bedrooms for b&b and a multi-purpose self-contained function room and skittles alley. But most of all there is "... ALWAYS A FRIENDLY WELCOME."
