The Frocester George
From the excellent food and the wide selection of real ale, local beer and the array of of 50 gins, to the rural views it commands, The Frocester George takes the quintessential country pub dining experience to soaring heights. Visitors will find ten guest bedrooms, a warm ambience and cosy restaurant at this much-loved gem.
Head chef Mark Sandell creates seasonally inspired menus that he’s rightly proud of. Dishes arrive having been freshly cooked using the finest ingredients found nearby, including produce from Frocester Fayre just down the road. Menus change seasonally, but you can expect the line-up of dishes to include enticing starters such as pan-fried scallops wrapped in pancetta with vermouth cream sauce and granary bread, and Cornish sardines with roasted peppers and sea salt. Main courses such as oven-roasted hake with lemon, pea and courgette risotto, and pork medallions in apple and cider sauce, set the bar high. The same goes for the desserts – the chocolate and Cointreau torte, banana fritters with toffee sauce, and zingy lemon posset offer plenty of reasons to linger and indulge in a sweet treat. If you prefer savoury over sweet, look to the cheeseboard, which comprises homemade biscuits, bread and chutney with a medley of cheese.
Let the weather decide whether you huddle up next to the log fire inside or eat al fresco in the garden alongside your pooch. Brimming with character, this is an all-round venue that beckons a visit.
