The George Hotel
Set against the backdrop of the charming market town of Castle Cary, The George Hotel eagerly welcomes guests from far and wide. Originally a coaching inn, the hotel’s exterior, with its thatched roof, is equally as charming as its interior. Here you’ll find 14 boutique rooms that offer that comforting home-away-from-home feeling, as well as a cosy, traditional-style restaurant and a well-stocked gin and Prosecco bar.
Begin by perusing the varied menu – there’s something available for every palate. The specials board offers a selection of the chef’s favourites while the menus provide an offering of homemade British classics. At lunchtime, opt for a light jacket potato with a salad garnish, or order a sandwich with your favourite filling. Options include roast beef and horseradish, Brie and cranberry, and mouth-watering barbecue pulled pork.
Evening diners are offered an impressive array of platters, grilled dishes and burgers. If you’re sharing with a partner, plump for the meaty sharer, which comes with the likes of pork pie, honey mustard sausages and slices of roast beef, or opt for a delicious veggie feast. For many diners, the grilled Aberdeen Angus steak is hard to beat, and the vegetable lasagne with triple-cooked chips is deliciously moreish. The George Hotel hosts regular live music events too – be sure to check the website for details.
