Bucking Fastard left this review about The George Inn
Clearly an old building,but unloved and basic.You enter into an overlit tap room with no character,it looks more like a shop than a pub.The furniture here is worn and there is a tacky sweet dispenser.The regulars were using the full range of expletives but were not threatening ,more like village idiot types.The barmaid was wearing a parka ,and was bantering along.Behind the two sided bar,there is a more interesting area with a fine brick fireplace housing a log burner (not working hence the parka) and two sofas ,while a single table in an alcove also gave relief from the fruity language.
Along a corridor to the loos ,there is a rear snug with more low profile sofas,one wedged into an unused fireplace.
At the bar just two real ales on my trip Deuchars IPA and a decent St Austell Tribute,served in a Fosters glass as there was a shortage of glassware,despite only 3 paying customers.The food offering looked at the deep value end of the market with most mains £5-7,possibly for a good reason.The door to Bogarts ChillOut Lounge was closed on my visit.
Down at heel,it had a quirky charm but could be so much better with some TLC.
