About The George Hotel and Beach Club

The Conservatory is a family-friendly brasserie-style restaurant with a light airy interior and uninterrupted views of the Solent. The food here is fabulously unfussy and dishes are created and cooked from the wonderful natural Isle of Wight larder. While away a few hours under an umbrella watching the sail boats zip past or dine by the seawall looking out across the small shingle beach and the sea beyond.

Booked inside for 7,30 pm. Arrived early for a drink in garden. Very busy and asked to wait by a harassed receptionist/hostess who told everyone in turn how chaotic it was since returning from her break! Asked to take a seat for half an hour in waiting area when others who hadn’t booked were led to tables when becoming free. No drink and then told our restaurant table was ready. No side plates given with bread and butter. No glass given for bottled beer. Other than that, food tasty. Rather expensive but I appreciate paying a premium for location/view. Might return for a drink next time on island.

Very nice place but only to have a drink in front of the sea. Avoid eating here, It's expensive and the food taste bad. Moreover it's a shame to eat lobster served on a paper towel for 28£.

I never normally leave reviews but on this occasion I felt I should as the service here was just so frustrating and poor which is such an easy thing to fix. We booked in for a breakfast to start our day trip on the island. It wasn't full with only about 4 or 5 other tables occupied. Our drinks took 20 mins to arrive, no one really around to chase (even though 4 staff working). Then when our waiter came to take our food order I asked about our drinks and just got a sort of mumbled response. My husbands coffee arrived lukewarm, couldn't be bothered to say anything as knew it would take ages to fix. Food arrived, which was very nice. However the toast with my breakfast was missing, I asked about this which the waitress seemed confused and said she'd ask about it, then nothing, until some toast arrived once we'd both finished and were ready to leave. Additional to this I was sat next to a fire exit door that kept opening by itself and wouldn't stay shut (was too cool to leave open), I sat holding it shut looking for help, however any staff that came in the room just avoided any eye contact with me to help fix it. It's such a shame as it's such a nice setting and the food was good, just felt like none of the staff wanted to be there at all and just couldn't be bothered.

I have been coming to the George for many years (after nearly buying it myself) I like the new Garden layout but the family angle obviously attracts those that quiet professional more mature clientelle may prefer not to mix with. A difficult balance but overall good to see the place buzzing

The setting was lovely as was the ambience. The food was not great. I couldn’t even eat my starter which was overcooked and horribly salty. The mains were better but overall average and certainly not worth the cost. Chef made me a lovely dessert off the menu, u fortunately could not compensate for the rest of the meal. Our waitress was friendly but really quite incompetent; over our whole meal we received wrong order/items 4 times!

Service was really poor. Waitress was happy but a bit inexperienced. Make waiting staff were quite surly and standoffish. This place really needs some better management. When we asked if we could add some smoked salmon to breakfast it was barked ‘no, it’s not on the menu’. Nothing like I’ll ask chef or sorry we font have that. Just a bunch of clowns here which is a shame as we have been using the George this last 18 years through its good and bad times.

We every much enjoyed our evening. The George hotel had done a very good job of helping us to feel covid safe, without spoling the 'ambiance'-it did not feel too clinical. lovely to sit in the garden looking at the sea, with good friends, enjoying good food and drink!

We had an awesome time on Sunday. The staff were friendly and helpful despite the PPE, which we were really pleased to see! The outlook was incredible, fantastic spot. Already recommended you to friends and I believe they’re already coming in the week! Look forward for coming back next time we’re on the Island. Thanks so much.

I must say one of the best dining experiences I have had for a long time. Food was excellent and the staff without fussing about were fist class. The fact that my wife paid was the “icing on the cake”
