Blackthorn _ left this review about The George Inn

A traditional looking, roadside pub in this small village, it consists of a number of rooms internally and has won Bath Camra’s Rural Pub of the Year award on a couple of occasions.

The main bar area has a dark wood strip floor and exposed stone walls all around. It has a traditional country pub ambience with black beams on the ceiling, plenty of hops hanging around and a fire-place inlaid in to one wall which the friendly barmaid kept well topped up with logs. A dual aspect fire-place elsewhere contained a wood burning stove providing heat to the adjacent room as well. A darts board was on the wall next to an old grandfather clock in the corner and there were numerous pictures on the wall including photographs of the local area and watercolours of the pub. Beyond this was a room similar in appearance with one large table and a plasma screen in the corner which looked somewhat out of place, although this was not in use on our visit. A table contained a pile of old board games and a window ledge displayed a selection of shields and trophies, presumably won by the pub’s darts or skittles teams. Another room at the rear is perhaps more geared up for dining with purple paintwork and an arched ceiling.

Beers on tap were their own King George (brewed for them by Blindmans), Bath Ales Barnsey, HSD, Yeovil Summerset and Blindman’s George & Dragon. Ciders too were well represented with Thatcher’s Gold, Pilton Cider, Cornish Rattler and Cheddar Valley. All in all, I thought this was a great pub and well worth a visit.

17th Century pub, lots of real ale (2011 pub of the year), good food and a warm welcome. Would recommend a visit if you're in the area.
