We stopped off here purposely on our way back from York to show our Chinese friend the place that inspired the Grandfather Clock song. They still have the clock and a copy of the song on the wall but only in English and I mentioned to the General Manager that to encourage Chinese and Japanese tourists that he should put up a translation into their languages.The Japanese think that the song is of Japanese origins! We had a warm Brie and cranberry sandwich, half a picante pizza and the chef's homemade pie with excellent pastry and large chips in their skins with gravy-very nice. I had a pint of George bitter and another pint of local brew but found the George bitter More to my liking.We also had a cheeseboard which was also excellent. we arrived around five before meals started but they obliged us by making an exception for which we were very grateful.We had a long chat with the General Manager (who has just taken over) and his friend.This establishment is sitting right in the banks of the river Tees and after our meal we went out back down the steps to the river over a makeshift bridge, they have a few tables and chairs down there and a summer seat too.A nice place to sit and enjoy the river!Thank You George folks!

Took my granddaughter for afternoon tea at the George Hotel Piercebrigde , for a pre 13th birthday treat , on arrival was seated on a table overlooking the river on a lovely sunny day , however the window ledge had dead flies on it , which a young lady removed when I told her about them , I was given a choice of tea or coffee , I had the coffee but it was only warm , the afternoon tea arrived a total of three finger sandwiches each , ham ( bread was not buttered ,) tuna fish ( which was very salty ) , and a mixed cheese savoury , one small piece of lemon cake , a small piece of friut cake and a small chocolate brownie , two fruit scone which were hard as rock and I don't think we're home made , I told the young lady and she brought us two different ones , these were warm but on cutting them open were cold on the inside making me wonder if these had been frozen , but she assured me they do not freeze them , the only saving grace was that they came with proper clotted cream . I was offered a glass of procceco but as I was driving she offered me a latte coffee , which I'm afraid the flavour was very weak !! All in all a very disappointing afternoon tea I'm afraid !

July 2017. Contacted hotel to make booking using a Groupon voucher. Booked for 1245. Arrived at hotel and were escorted into the bar area. As it was a lovely warm sunny day I was hoping to be seated overlooking river and headed that way but we were redirected into bar. All areas seemed extremely quiet, and as a result lacked atmosphere. Staff friendly. Afternoon tea ok, fresh scones with jam and clotted cream in abundance , fresh finger sandwiches , tuna, egg savoury, ham, cheese savoury. Prosecco was extremely sweet. Not to my taste so it was left. Lemon drizzle cake, fruit cake, chocolate brownie. Coffee refilled. Food plentiful. I dare say on a busier day and with a bit of atmosphere it could have been a better experience. Collapse

We stayed here for 2 nights in June. The place is a joy, with the river and gardens at the back of the hotel, it is gorgeous.The room (8) was really luxurious, very clean with a lovely bathroom. The breakfast was top class. All the food was faultless. The staff are friendly, efficient and professional. Thanks to Glen, a brilliant Manager, welcoming, with a great sense of humor. We will come and see you again. (it's our job)!!! ;) Collapse

I stayed here in June for 2 nights for a wedding party. The venue it's self is a lovely old style building with plenty of character. The grounds at the rear of the property are to die for. The river and grass area make it so relaxing and perfect for wedding pictures and cosy nights. The accommodation is decorated to a high standard and the only moans I can have are 1, the rooms were boiling and had no air con 2. I had no shower in my room and the water pressure was slow. Other than that the rooms are great and spaces. The food was brilliant all weekend especially at the wedding dinner. The wedding venue is lovely and would recommend there. The staff at the George were brilliant and so accommodating to any request. Always had a smile and willing to chat and have banter. Especially the old night porter he would defiantly go the extra mile for the guests especially at the bar . Good value for money, great location, great views would recommend. Collapse
