I haven’t been to the George in several years and I was so impressed. Great place to meet for brunch, with fantastic food, fantastic service and brilliant value for money. I was meeting a friend and didn’t want to go to any of the cafes in Nailsea as they are all quite cramped, cheap and not the nicest of settings to catch up. I looked online and was amazed that the George was open for breakfast so thought I would give it a try. So pleased I did! The menu had a good selection, the service was friendly and efficient, the facilities were clean and tidy and the place had a lovely atmosphere. The nicest place to go for brunch in the area. Very impressed and will return to try the lunch and evening menu too.

As it was lovely weather the day we visited it was good to have a nice garden to sit and have drinks after our meal, very nice experience will return 😎

Whilst we appreciate that this country does not always have temperatures as they were the evening we were there the management needs to look at some form of aircon in the restaurant. A fan would have helped

Lovely evening at The George. I would say quite pricey for what it is but don’t mind paying when the atmosphere and service is so good.

We've previously had Sunday lunch at the George, and on the basis that we really enjoyed it, came for a meal on Saturday evening. Unfortunately, it just didn't meet up to expectations. The food wasn't really up to scratch (soup had to be sent back, duck was dry, fish too oily). Disappointing overall.
