About The George at Backwell
Good food and wine, great beers and a very warm welcome.
Seven individually designed en suite bedrooms.
Close to Bristol's city centre and airport.
Breakfast served until 10.30am
Main meals served from 12noon through until 9pm.
Although there was a member of staff behind the bar when we walked in, she did not make eye contact or greet us for a good few minutes even though she knew we were there. I appreciate she was pouring drinks at the time but a smile and “I’ll be with you in a minute” goes a long way. Once we were seated we were well looked after and the guy and girl who mostly looked after our table were very helpful and happy.
Dear Kirsty - We make to make sure our guests feel welcome as soon as they arrive at The George - so thank you for your feedback and for taking the time to leave a review. Regards, Sam Roffe, The George at Backwell.
Me and my partner love coming here, always very friendly and a nice atmosphere.
We are thrilled to know how much you enjoy your visits. Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we hope to see you again soon.
I liked how the vegetables, stuffing, yorkshire pudding and pigs in blanket were all included with the roast.
Very welcoming reception by both bar and restaurant staff. My pint of Tribute was slightly sour (end of barrel) but this was changed with no fuss. We had the table by the serving station and the route to the ladies toilet. This was the only slightly negative point of our visit that it felt a bit cramped.
Lovely food & great service 😊, will definitely be back
It is lovely to know you enjoyed excellent food and service here at The George. Thank you for writing a review Claire.
Service was fab, just a little dissapointed with my main course and pudding 😔 hense the 3 stars for food
The menu choice is always good here, catering for every taste. Service was very good. The staff are attentive but not intrusive. We all had a great afternoon and will be returning again soon.
Over the years we have always found the food at The George a bit and miss but, after a break of about 2 years, we gave The George another try. It was a Thursday night and the pub was busy but we were quickly seated. It was noisy but we were abe to have a conversation without shouting at each other. The service was good and the staff were friendly. Great cod and chips (mushy peas a little dry) and lovely gammon eggs and chips although one egg was runny and one was hard. A mini dessert of sticky toffee pudding was more like a normal sized dessert but I wasn't complaining! I would like to see more fish and lighter dishes on the menu as there are only a couple of dishes that I would choose but, as last night's meal was so good, we won't be leaving it another 2 years before returning.
Dear Peter - Many thanks for letting us know how much you enjoyed your return visit. We hope to see you again soon. Best wishes from us all.
Had a great Sunday lunch
A beautiful country pub with great food and service
The George is a beautiful pub with a great atmosphere. We enjoyed our afternoon meal and look forward to visiting again soon. The reasons why it’s not 5 star across the board are firstly, the Nut Roast (the reason we chose The George) is no longer on the menu. It was online, and still is, but isn’t available. Secondly, my husbands beef had lots of gristle which you don’t expect when it costs £15. Lastly, the pudding menus were different not only to the online version but the ones we were given didn’t match. However, the service is great and the staff are friendly. The chairs are very comfortable and the atmosphere is cosy.
Thank you for your positive comments - and for your request that our Nut Roast makes a return. We shall discuss your feedback and will make sure our Sunday menu is updated on our website.
Everything was great! We will be visiting again.
Food cold. Ordered chocolate brownie for desert did not mention on the menu it contained nuts. Veg was extremely hard like it wasn’t cooked.
Dear Whitney - I shall urgently alert our kitchen team to your feedback. Thank you for alerting us to what needed to be better during at the time of your visit. We will work to make sure that such mistakes are not repeated again. Best wishes. Sam Roffe, The George at Backwell.
Lovely evening and lovely food, perfect for a nice, quiet Tuesday night with the hubbie
The Sunday lunch was certainly big enough and was perfectly pleasant but have had better much cheaper. Great service and atmosphere the staff couldn't do enough for us.
My friends and I had a lovely evening! The service could not be faulted it was excellent! Friendly, knowledgeable; one of our number is lactose intolerant but the staff member who greeted us was fully informed about which menu items were suitable and how their needs could be accommodated. The food was delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Thank you!
What a lovely review Jackie. Your thanks will be passed to the whole of the team and we hope to see you again soon.
The George used to be a hot and moss case for a while . At the moment it is definitely a Hit !!! And service was always the weakest point . But not now . We especially loved a guy in a shirt ( as all other staff seemed to wear T-shirt’s ) and slightly longer hair . Brilliant sense of humour and always makes u feel so welcome . We r becoming regulars again :)
We are really pleased you are becoming regulars again Elena. Thank you for letting us know about your most recent visit.
The Sunday lunch was very good, it was very busy but our table was ready on time, the service was a bit slow due but didn’t spoil our overall experience
Food was excellent. Despite booking and arriving early we were disappointed that we were positioned by the cold door. We sat with coats on. Pub looked too busy for staff to cope, so service was too slow on this occasion.
Dear Andrew - Thank you for letting us know your food was good. We were very busy during your visit - but we will work harder to make sure this is not an excuse for slow service. We will also make sure that the table you sat is made only available for 'walk-ins' or very late bookings. Thank you for your feedback. Best wishes. Sam Roffe, The George at Backwell.
A very pleasant atmosphere in the George food very good and the staff very lovely
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.
Great place for Sunday lunch- good food and nice atmosphere with very friendly service
Lovely dog friendly pub with a limited but great menu. food was delicious and plentiful. Staff are friendly and very helpful
Staff not always on the ball when you are not in the restaurant itself
As a group of 6 people , we all enjoyed the evening. The food was very good and the table service was very good Thankyou
Many thanks for your feedback which we will share with the whole team.
