Now an Italian restaurant, but according to their website they are happy for people to call in for a drink.

Blackthorn _ left this review about George Inn

A good sized pub on the main road through the village, this gives the impression of being more of an Italian restaurant these days with the pub’s website describing it as a “Ristorante, Bar and Pizzeria” and the pub sign having the restaurant name, La Collina, displayed prominently with The George being relegated to very small lettering underneath. Outside seating consisted of a small patio at the front, and a courtyard and beer garden at the back.

Consequently I was quite surprised when I got in to find that the main room at the front of the pub is quite a traditional bar with the restaurant operation being in a smaller room at the rear. The bar is split in to two halves, although it’s all one open space. There are rough wooden boards on the floor with a mixture of cream and deep red painted wallpaper on the walls. To the left was a large brick fire-place with an old clock above it and a wood burning stove which the friendly barman was keeping topped up, and in front of this were a couple of brown leather sofas whilst elsewhere the seating was conventional tables and chairs. A pool table was in the corner in the right hand half, and a football match was being projected on to the wall. Clearly their budget did not run to a proper screen and the image was badly out of focus.

Food wise, the menu was very much Italian influenced as previously noted, with plenty of pizza and pasta options as well as a handful of meat and fish dishes. The pricing structure seems a little odd, with most of the pasta dishes being in the £10 - £15 price range and pizza’s varying from £6.95 to £12.95. This is clearly overpriced, with my Penne con Pollo & Salsiccia Calabrese (Sauté chicken & spicy calabrese sausage with penne pasta topped with melted mozzarella) worth nowhere near the £13.95 listed on the menu. Not there was anything wrong with it, but it was a fairly basic pasta dish, certainly nothing out of the ordinary. However, there are a number of discount vouchers on their website, and I used a 30% off pasta deal, so £8.37 is much more reasonable. On the other hand, if you turn up without a voucher you may well feel somewhat hard done by.

Beers on tap were limited to just Greene King IPA as far as I could make out, although there was also a board advertising Adnam’s Lighthouse as a guest. Unfortunately there were no draft ciders available, which seems very odd in this day and age.
