Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The George, nestled in beautiful Kent countryside, has a great country-pub vibe. Given that it’s been awarded numerous accolades for its use of local, seasonal produce, it’s not surprising that even on a cold March evening midweek, The George was full of happy customers. Everything and anything that the staff can source locally, they do, including superb gin. We enjoyed delicious bread with olives as we perused the menu. From a diverse range of dishes featuring the best ingredients Kent has to offer, we started with seared scallops with local black pudding and fresh cauliflower purée. Next up for me was melt-in-the-mouth fillet steak served simply with fluffy chips and fresh tarragon butter. The huge, boozy tiramisu proved the perfect way to end the meal. Service at The George is relaxed and friendly, and the food is delectable – we’ll definitely be back.
