excellent food.. Had our Christmas function there so thought we would return
Food was lovely and staff very friendly. Great lunch. Will go again and again.
Really good food, the pigs cheeks were particularly tasty. Melted in your mouth! Only downside was a lot of the mussels starter hadn't opened which suggested they could have done with another minute. main courses were delicious so we were more than satisfied with the food. restaurant area lacked atmosphere. we were the only ones eating at 7.30pm on a Friday night and as the dining area is downstairs from the pub it was extremely quiet. Maybe we just chose the wrong night/time but it did highlight the traffic to the toilets which are also downstairs. I suspect we wouldn't have noticed if a few more tables had been full. Overall though it was a good night and we will return.
We dined on a Saturday night and the restaurant was empty it was early 6.30. I not sure why as the décor is lovely and the service is good,the menu although not extensive was fine however 17.50 for cod was too high for me. I had risotto it was fine and my husband had the fish and chips which was enormous he enjoyed it. My only criticism if anything is that it lack atmosphere the dining room is in the basement therefore no outside view and no staff either unless they are delivering food they don't hang around.
The food in here was great and the prices were decent. I thought the toilets downstairs smelled quite badly and if I had been seated there then I would not have been happy. As it was, going to the toilet was an unpleasant experience with the smell combined with the fact that, on my first trip, the door to the cubicle wouldn't close as it was too big for the opening and on the second, there was no loo roll in the cubicle. The menu is quite small but the food was fab, with local ingredients being used. Service was friendly.
The service was really good and food tasty but portions way too big. Ended up leaving nearly half the risotto I had which I felt bad about but was stuffed! We like the atmosphere in the George Charles but didn’t realise our table booking would be downstairs which was much quieter and nearly empty all evening - will definitely try to request an upstairs table next time. Overall enjoyed our evening and will be returning.
Food good but limited choice and informed when attempting to order a dish with chicken thighs that it would take 20min, changed my order as was on a time limit however the order still took 15-20min. The General service was fine and waitress was pleasant and helpful my friends food was excellent and she booked a table for wkd.
Had a lovely Sunday Roast here last weekend with a party of 7 including a toddler. The staff were amazing! Couldn't do enough for us, really attentive and great with the 1 yr old. 3 courses, wine, cocktails...all great and the atmosphere is lovely too. Will definitely be returning!
