We went for a meal last night and loved the place the staff couldn't do enough for us and the view was lovely. The food was amazing and the assistant manager Ashley was brilliant. Friendly welcoming and lovely fella thank you

We visited this place a few years ago and it was really nice, yesterday however it was anything but. I ordered a salad to start, then half way through to my absolute horror I found myself crunching on a piece of plastic which resembled a plastic tooth pic. I immediately raised this with the waitress and was told, "we don't know what this is because we don't have toothpicks on the tables" ? Another member of our party had the pate to start and when they lifted the slice of pate up and looked underneath it was green/blue, obviously this is the colour pate turns when it has not been covered and refrigerated properly,as the pate tasted sour that starter also got left. My Aunt had the soup to start which came loop-warm to say the least. Then my main course came, I had ordered something from the menu names "the dirty burger" in hindsight thats exactly what it looked like, a black charred piece of whag I think was meat but I could not tell you what kind. The other members of my party opted for the house special pie and the Lasagne which both said were ok but nothing superb to write home about. It was when I got back home that my problems really started, needless to say that for the last 16 hours I have been constantly vomiting and never off the toilet. To put it mildly "I feel ill" Now I am fully aware that I cannot be certain as to what has made me so ill, however seen as I was perfectly fine before I visited the George and ate my lunch there, well it does not take a genius to see that its a very strange coincidence. Needless to say I will not be going back there in a hurry, I am off now to down another glass of Dioralyte seen as I am still running back and forwards to the loo. You have been warmed. Collapse
A place to chill.

A nice location to visit to have a hushful read on a midweek afternoon. If it's warm you can sit beside the river while reading your newspapers or on a balcony that overlooks the Tees with a scenic view of the lovely surroundings.

The George is a large place with multiple rooms and caters for all sorts from tourists, business people through to weddings and special events. Situated near the Roman Fort and Bridge it is popular with visitors. There is a reasonable menu available and the food is good, also does afternoon teas etc. The only let down is the decor, a little dated now and in need of an uplift. However it is friendly and in a good position near the local attractions. Collapse

We booked an overnight stay at The George Hotel in Piercebridge after a recommendation. We got a deal for £100 which included a 3 course evening meal, bed & breakfast! From the outset it seemed like a bargain. All looked great on the website, when we arrived we were initially impressed with the appearance and location of the hotel. Things went rapidly downhill, on arrival the staff couldn't find our reservation on the computer system, we were sat in reception and decided to get a drink at the bar after a 20 minute wait. We were given free drinks for the inconvenience and could have forgave the error but things didn't improve throughout the rest of our time there. There was no heating in our room when we eventually got taken to our room, the radiator nozzle was smashed with bits lying on the carpet, it was March and the temperature was cold. There was a wedding party booked and the restaurant was closed in the evening due to their function, the website is misleading and we believed the menu and location of meal would be in the restaurant. We were sat in a cold bar along with another older couple who asked for the low volume background music to be turned off completely and we were plunged into complete silence ...barring the sound of fawkes scraping off plates, no ambience, no atmosphere and no consideration for us. We left the pub as soon as we ate in search of a more atmospheric place. In the morning we had an hour wait at the dining table before breakfast was served to us, we had drank our coffee long before we were served breakfast and had nothing to wash breakfast down with. It seems to me that this hotel has great potential but it appears to be very poorly managed, in fact there was no sign of management. The staff were friendly but there is a definite lack of leadership which leaves a poor service. I regularly stay in hotels and B&B's when travelling and I rarely if never have had a bad experience like this hotel. Collapse
