Old Boots left this review about The George Inn

Posh looking place next to the minster, the inside is a typical modern tosh hotel with a lighter grey paint job and down market punters and staff. Four pulls of indifferent beers including some house labelled stuff from God knows where. There's a formal restaurant at the back as you probably guessed. The inside has a rather down-market ambience, with music and screens and machines. Booth seating opposite the counter, some with their own screen showing sports, there's also bloody constant music. God preserve us!

The George is an imposing former coaching inn in the middle of Selby and next to the Abbey. You can only wonder what this building must have been like in it's heyday.
Certainly there are few original features left inside, the odd fireplace and piece of coping but this has been thoroughly modernised and turned into something of a characterless open plan drinking barn. As mentioned below one of the most dominant features is the number of screens dotted everywhere and all showing different channels.
A squint at the menu revealed standard pub grub no doubt purveyed by van, warmed and sold very cheap.
Beers on were Great Newsome Frothingham Best, The George, Black Sheep and TT Landlord. The George is a house beer but the surly barmaid didn't know who brewed it. The Landlord though was very good and went down well.
I'd certainly return for the Landlord and a subsequent visit to the 'spoons made this place seem classy and cosy by comparison.

A grand building from the outside in the lee of the Abbey,a former coaching inn.However the interior has been refurbed in such a way as to destroy any character,it just feels like a modern bar despite retaining several seperate front sections,one housing a pool table.On entering there are high tables and opposite the bar there are a rank of high seating booths.The only feature is the wood panelled restaurant at the rear,but the pub grub food is super value ,and leads you to wonder what ingredients must be used to create such cheap meals.There are screens everywhere for Sky ,BT Sport,Music Channel and Racing.There was no escape from this form of pollution.
The bar supports 4 handpumps serving a house beer of unknown provenance but very cheap ,with Timothy Taylor Landlord a regular at £3 (Decent once the first pint has drawn off the ale lingering in the pipes).
The only saving grace was the Landlord and with the other real ale options in Selby town centre limited,you may find yourself grateful for this particular option.
