Booked at short notice - pub is only 10 mins away from Bristol airport - having been once before and enjoyed a lovely roast. Again, not disappointed and prompt efficient service meant we had plenty of time to get to the airport.

Quite disappointed with our Sunday lunch which was a special occasion as it was our granddaughter's 21st .Our beef was so tough we were unable to cut it or chew it,sirloin should not be like that,the roast potatoes were hard as if they had been standing and reheated our meat was changed to lamb and pork and that was fine. Also the puddings could have been better the crumble my husband had was not baked as in a true crumble dry and sawdusty. Although visually the food looked good I'm afraid it wasnt overall massively disappointing.

The food was ok. It wasn’t particularly hot when it arrived. Not sure I liked the flavouring on the vegetables. The chocolate brownie I had wasn’t very nice. Stone cold with a dollop of ice cream on top. Overall I enjoyed my meal but not sure I’d rush back.

A large number of people were sitting on the table behind me and at times they were so loud I couldn’t hear the conversation at our table. I realise this is just my opinion and the people on the other table were just enjoying themselves, noisily!

Such a shame as we have always had great food and service in the past but unfortunately last Wednesday the service was shocking We had to ask for a menu and drinks as no one came to us and I had a very under cooked burger -no deserts were offered and had to go up to bar to get the bill all round very disappointing

We ate off the Christmas menu and the starter was very disappointing. The main and desert was wonderful just sadly let down by the starter. I also felt that you were slightly understaffed and we sat with empty plates in front of us for a while and didn’t find the staff very attentive.

I would like to say a huge thank you to you all for making our Company Christmas lunch feel special. Your staff were warm and friendly and you made us feel very welcome. We all chose from the Festive menu and the food was lovely. It was all served o time and everyone enjoyed it. We have had a number of lunches at The George and have always liked it. I have recommended The George to everyone I know who wants to meet for lunch and quite often pop in myself.
