Friendly, polite staff. Lovely garden setting. Blankets provided because of having to sit outside due to current COVID regulations, which was a really nice touch. Food was lovely. Would definitely visit again.

Took an hour and a reminder for our food to come out (soup, bread, chips and salad). Chips were over cooked and burned, bread was hard and felt stale or been sitting out too long. Salad grossly over priced. Waitresses lovely and doing their best. Not sure what happened, but have been there twice in the last 2 weeks and both times took a long time for food to come out and it just didn't reflect the price being charged. Will be trying other pubs for food now which is a real shame as we do love The George, but the kitchen and prices need to match up better before we eat there again.

Good food, however no wine menu available, and one week 2 glasses of Sauvignon bland are £16.40 and the next they are £ 19.20! It’s not about the money, but please be consistent! Also, on Sunday 18th of April the bill total was the total, then on the next two Sundays the 25th & 2nd of April, a 10% service charge appeared at the bottom of the bill, Apologies, a really nice Sunday lunch, but becoming somewhat overpriced. Regards

Dear Rob - We are sorry we weren't consistent and didn't explain our discretionary service charge. Thank you for alerting us to what we needed to do better. I will pass your feedback to our General Manager so our Front of House team can be briefed. Best wishes, Sam Roffe, The George at Backwell.

Hi There, Booked for my husbands birthday, service a bit slow, took 20 mins to take a drinks order. We were given menu's and order taken, but then told food menu changed at 3pm!!!! If the order was taken earlier, or if we were told about his we could of ordered our original food request's, so we were disappointed about this, esp as a birthday surprise meal!! Also we were NOT told about the bluetooth music, such a shame we found this afterwards, would of been such a nice touch!

So good to be back at the pub. There were lots of smiling faces so we were obviously not the only ones glad to be back socialising with friends and family at our local pub.

Limited menu (no "specials" available) and only two cask ales (Butcombe and Tribute) with no guest beers. BUT service was great and courtyard is as good as it gets if one has to sit outside. We have booked to come again - so I guess that speaks for itself.

The food is nice, but expensive for what it is. That said,I've always thought that pre pandemic too. Some music like they have inside in the outdoor area would be an atmospheric touch. Service was excellent as usual, friendly, efficient and attentive staff.
