We have eaten in the Garden Room at the George for over many years & look forward to Xmas Eve lunch each year. Sadly over the last 6 months we’ve seen a decline in standards, which hadn’t improved on Xmas Eve. The staff didn’t appear...More

Our 15th Annual (obviously) Quarter Day Christmas dinner in the London Room. Always spot on - smoked salmon - beef from the trolley and Pudding. The Yorkshire’s are always a highlight and the beef is routinely fantastic.

This old coaching house in Stamford is a fine example of olde world charm and service linked to modern facilities - but not cheap ! And gents have to wear a jacket in the posh restaurant - so we ate elsewhere

Thank you very much for your review. We do kindly request a jacket for gentlemen in The Oak Room for dinner; however, we also have the Garden Room and York Bar for more informal but equally delicious meals.

We were deeply saddened to read about your recent visit to the York Bar and you are absolutely right, greater care should have been given to your order and this will be discussed with the Service Team. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

The George Hotel is a “go to” place in Stamford, especially at Christmas when they really do make the place look lovely. We ate in the formal dining room this week. I have often been to the “Garden Room” but rarely this more exclusive venue....More

Description
A magnificent oak-panelled space is the fine dining setting at The George Hotel of Stamford, one of England's greatest coaching inns. A mix of regular locals and hotel guests can always be found relaxing at bare oak tables beneath an eye-catching hand-painted ceiling. In summer, or on mild nights, they like to sit outside under the heated canopy in the ivy-clad courtyard. Open for grand lunches and dinner, the George Hotel Restaurant serves traditional yet imaginative English dishes, specialising in seafood. Lighter daytime dishes such as Dover sole are superceeded at night with heartier meals such as rack of lamb with fresh herbs and redcurrant jelly, and roast English beef carved at the table on a silver trolley. Accompanied by traditional trimmings, of course.
