Eating & Drinking

“The welcome is warm, the beer’s on song and the food is fab. Young chefs are creative with local, seasonal produce so try partridge breast, roast belly of Gloucester Old Spot pork, or the George proper pie. Vegetarian and Vegan dishes are super too, maybe wild mushroom vegetable suet pudding. Delicious.”

Our Menus

Where our Ingredients Come from

Ingredients simply. In the warmer months our pesticide-free vegetable garden provides the kitchens with an abundance of vegetables, salad leaves and herbs.


We always aim to use quality local produce and work with nearby allotment holders, farmers and businesses to keep food miles to a minimum and welfare a high priority.

Provenance and seasonality are, after all, always at the heart of our menu and keep our chefs continually inspired!


The Setting

A green sward ripples in this remote limestone village, perched on a plateau between the gorges of the rivers Dove and Manifold in the Peak District National Park


“It has rhubarb bellinis instead of brown ale, and home-roasted almonds rather than pork scratchings. But don’t be misled: the George has not lost touch with its roots. This 400-year-old coach house, has retained the lime-washed walls and photos of lugubrious locals, adding only fresh flowers, church candles and a mighty fine steak and stilton pie. Out front, you’ll find picnic sets right by the village green. The views hereabouts are straight from the I-spy book of the English countryside: tottering haystacks, tree-dappled meadows and (rather more surprisingly) Alstonefield’s resident T rex. Expect to share a table with hikers and horsewomen – it’s a short trot from here across dung-scented cow pasture to Dovedale, the prettiest valley in the peak district.”
