The George at Backwell is one of the few pubs we would recommend to others - it is consistently good for food, drink, service and atmosphere.....long may it continue!

It was the first time we'd eaten at the George and to be quite honest having been dissapointed everywhere else locally we weren't expecting much. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. Sunday lunch is one of those meals that you so often think you could have done better yourself, so going home having enjoyed the great food and extremely nice surroundings we were a very contented bunch. Thanks!

Service was absolutely appalling on the day we visited (Sunday 14th April) We asked for two different drinks at different times which both eventually turned up only to be not what we had ordered. Ordered GF beef roast to be presented with a GF chicken roast. Gave up waiting for sauces to be brought to our table, instead just went and helped ourselves, and by the time the extra gravy that my husband ordered arrived at the table, he had almost finished his dinner - not bad given that we were about 6 feet away from the kitchen!

Dear Claire - I am very sorry you did not experience our normal high levels of service. I shall alert our General Manager so he can look in detail at what needed to be done better. Thank you for alerting us. Regards, Sam Roffe, The George at Backwell.

We had two meals at the George whilst we were staying for the weekend both were delicious. The mussels in madeira and bacon were superb as was the haddock both on the specials board. Starters off the main menu the battered halloumi and crisy beef were highlights. If we lived in the area we would definitely be regulars.
