Eating & Drinking

“This is more of a restaurant than a pub, and it’s awesome. The staff are brilliantly human and friendly, so understated and laid back it is in wonderful contrast to the magnificent top class food. This is one a few totally stand out eateries in the area. Relaxed, understated excellence. Totally on the money. Don’t miss out but make sure you book…” Customer review 2019.


During our closure, as well as being able to complete building restorations, update and decorate, it has given us time for serious thought around how we configure our offer, and successfully operate in the coming months. Not only is The George our home, we also have a duty of care to our staff and customers alike.

We have been working on a number of measures to ensure we make your next visit safe and comfortable, based on Public Health England (PHE) guidelines, with a focus on maintaining the impeccable standards of food and service delivery that have become synonymous with The George.

Our Menus

Coach House Bar

Our Coach House bar: a relaxed space to kick off muddy boots after a long walk with the dog and enjoy a drink, a snack and unwind.

It’s an unhurried place, where everyone knows everyone else (or soon will). Summer sees ramblers cram the benches out front, out back and time passes slowly. Come winter, its a cosy space with big tables, wooly blankets and some classic old school games to while away an hour or two.

Weekend lunch is served in the Coach House Bar, please book online or call for enquiries and reservations – note we are aiming to be open in future every Friday & Saturday evening too. Please make sure to stipulate your preference for the Coach House upon booking.

The Coach House is open for Sunday Lunch, offering a traditional roast dinner.

Please note well behaved dogs kept on leads are allowed in the Coach House Bar.


The Bar area can also be hired exclusively for smaller events, get togethers or as an extension to an event in the main Coach House rooms upstairs.

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!

Things to note...

*Please read our COVID policy and procedure here you will find information on the steps we have taken, along with the standards and expectations adopted.

Dietary Restrictions: We cannot cater for food dislikes. We aim to provide for most dietary requirements if we are aware in advance. Please let us know of any strict allergies or intolerances when you make your booking. Failure to make us aware of dietary restrictions may cause limited options to be available.

Whilst we follow best practice at all times, we would like to highlight that all the dishes we serve are produced in an environment where allergens are also prepared and cooked. Therefore we are unable to guarantee that the environment will be completely allergen free.

Restaurant and Cancellation Policy:

We respectfully ask that 48 hours’ notice (5 days for a tasting menu evening) is given prior to the booking date should you wish to cancel or amend the number within your party. If you are unable to cancel using your online booking confirmation, please email us at hello@thegeorgeatalstonefield.com

Failure to inform us within this time may result in a fixed charge of £15 per person for a lunch reservation, £25 for Sunday lunch, £40 per person for a dinner reservation, or £50 for a tasting menu reservation using the card used to authenticate your booking. If we are able to resell your table then your charge will be refunded.

For a reduction of numbers within 48 hours of the arrival time, we will apply the cancellation charge to the cancelled places.

Thank you.

Dogs (Petiquitte)

We love dogs but we do respect that not everyone does, and because we often get super busy and are tight on space we restrict well behaved dogs joining us at lunchtimes – in our bar area. These tables fill up quickly, so you must let us know to avoid disapointment. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times and tucked up under the tables.

At weekends, we also allow well behaved dogs on leads (we have free range chickens) in our Coach House Bar where we serve lunch, and of course in warmer months, we also have plenty of space outside.

Please make sure to add a note on your booking enquiry. Tell us you would like to bring your dog to avoid any disappointment!

We do not allow dogs in our dining room and snug (assistance dogs accepted) or during evening service.


Please call us to make a reservation or complete the form below.

Can we ask you check our booking policy and importantly our COVID-19 information and approach here prior to making your booking – thank you.


Remember, if you are seeking a booking for the same day it is advisable to call or please try our online booking form above.
