Clive Thompson left this review about The George

If you are going to proclaim yourself as a Free House with Cask Marque accreditation then I expect more than two pumps and something more adventurous than London Pride and Bombardier. Their marketing material claims that they have teamed up with SIBA but I saw no evidence of this. Only the Pride was on and at £2.80 it was reasonably priced, the menu also looked decent value for such an establishment. Diamond Club membership gets over 50's 25% off food on weekdays. A bit Ikea showroom like and a bit dark when you first walk in until your eyes accustom themselves to the low lighting and you spot the bar to the left hand side. A few TV's dotted around showing sports and some tables out front right on the main road.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The George

Don't know what it was like before, but this refurbished pub appears to be devoid of much character inside (although it looks like it ought to be an interesting place from the road). Quite a large space to fill, with some sofa-style seating near the windows, a few of those annoying high stools/tables near the long bar and more traditional tables and chairs further back. The staff seemed rather disinterested, despite it being a fairly quiet late afternoon. London Pride the only real ale on offer, but perhaps there is usually another beer on the second handpump.
