Service friendly and prompt. Thoroughly enjoyed the tortilla starter but the crispy beef salad (which I’ve had many times before) was disappointing. Instead of the usual sweet chilli dressing it had a vinaigrette one, too much vinegar made it unpalatable

Dear Ann - Thank you for alerting us to what needed to be better. We will review our beef salad urgently but please do let us know, during a visit, if there is a problem. Our team will always do their very best to put things right. Regards, Sam Roffe, The George at Backwell.

A bit grubby from the front, but around the back where the main entrance is a beautiful courtyard even at night. On arrival the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The menu is appealing and they cater for all the weird and wonderful experiences asked for. Very clean and in these times very safe. I would recommend the George to all.
