Bucking Fastard left this review about The George Hotel

Described as the oldest pub in Sherborne,this is a charming town centre establishment which is a Marston's tied house.There is no sign of a hotel operation these days,and although the outside has had a modern paint decoration ,the interior is authentic and traditional.There is an open plan bar room,with a real fire to the left side of the bar,a restaurant area to the far left and seating around the bar with two very pleasant seating areas in two bay windows.There is a pool table to the right infront of an inglenook which is not used these days ,probably because it is sited in a lower pit and if alight may catch unwary weavers after a heavy session !
There are 4 handpumps,one dedicated to a cider (Rosie Pig) with ,on my trip Marston's portfolio real ale Hobgoblin Gold,Ringwood Best and Forty Niner (in good shape).
This is a friendly ,laid back pub worth popping into and thankfully hasn't been refurbed or gone gastro.I enjoyed my visit.

Old pub at top of town but not quite sure what to make of it. The appeal of the floral displays and bric-a-brac on the walls is somewhat lessened by a prominent pool table. Offerings included a couple of Ringwood beers, but not impressed with the quality of that sampled, even though Cask Marque listed. Room for improvement.

Proclaiming itself "Sherborne's Oldest Pub", The George is an atmospheric old town pub aimed mainly at the tourist industry. The drinks are a bit pricey, but they do offer some reasonable deals, eg two meals (burger and chips type) with a drink each for £6.50. There is a welcoming air about the place and the staff are friendly and helpful, and well-behaved dogs are welcome too. There is a single large bar with a dining area off to one side, there's a really annoying gaming machine in the main part and there is outside seating overlooking the main shopping street. Two ales and a cider on - I had a pint of the Thatcher's cider which was cool and refreshing. A good place to sit and watch the world go by or to grab a quick bite at lunchtime.
