Open all day
Situated at the centre of the small market town of Eccleshall, the George is typically traditional English pub - lots of wooden beams, inglenook fireplace with open fires, and a warm, friendly atmosphere.
This was originally a coaching inn in the town centre on the main street by the roundabout. It has a separate restaurant which serves good food at reasonable prices in what seems to be a shop front.
The bar menu offers a very extensive range of excellent home cooked meals to suit all tastes, including grills, currys, pasta dishes, salads and sandwiches. Vegetarian meals are available, and there is a children's menu for the younger visitor. Daily "specials" are advertised on a board in the bar. All at very reasonable prices. Georges Restaurant provides for that special occasion, with bistro style catering and a good selection of wines.
The hotel brews its own ale out back and is called Slaters. At the time of visit there were eight real ales on, three Slaters beers and the rest were guests, including Highworth Threshers Ale, Weetwood, and Butcombe Bitter.
The bed and breakfast accommodation is very good three star variety with whirlpool (not working at the time) bath and tea making facilities. There is even a four poster bed available for the romantically inclined! The central heating and décor were good, though the latter was a little fussy.
The staff were a little forgetful at breakfast, but were nice with it.
Beer festivals regularly.
Eccleshall is an ideal location for exploring the historic heart of England. It's just 6 miles from Junction 14 on the M6 Motorway northbound, or 8 miles from junction 15 if you're heading south.
