user reviews of George at Nunney, Frome

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

rather mundane. Not horrible by any means, just quite lacking in atmosphere. Rather tacky decor. Seems popular with the retired demo graph, but I wouldn't call it a 'pub' as such (ie cosy and welcoming atmosphere). Ale ok, but rather pricy.

I had last been here a few years ago, when the landlord was rather different from the current one: then, he had no hesitation in having a tantrum about the bar staff (in front of all the customers) and managed to turn out the loo lights on my wife (who had to grope her way out in the dark). Today it is a very different establishment, extensively re-fitted. The drink (we did not eat) is a reasonable choice, about what you would expect in a Wadworth house. The menu looks good and relatively cheap for what it is. This will have to be a place to come back to. Very clean and friendly. 7/10

A lovely pub/restaurant in a quaint village we discovered on a recent jaunt through Somerset. The bar is a great place to relax and the food absolutely yummy! The building is a 17th century coaching in and full of character. Highly recommended if your around the area!

A very rude establishment! I visited the restaurant with a 99year old man and a 1 year old boy. The owner was very proud to announce to me that they do not serve children. After a lengthy discussion, we were eventually allowed to stay for a meal on the condition that if the child made a noise we would be ejected! Needless to say that this was a pointless arrangement, and we decided to leave. Upon leaving he made no attempt to apologies to the 99yr old who was rather disappointed. In fact his manner and approach to the 99yr old old was very confrontational. We decide to go to the Vobster Inn, in Vobster of all places and was greeted with a very warm and professional welcome. If you are reading this and are not sure if you should go to the George, simply DO NOT GO TO THE GEORGE. He clearly is running a business on the pretense of self importance rather than on the basis of a business that provides a service. The George is over rated, rude and lacks any professionalism that you would normally associate with a well run establishment.

This is not a country inn.

This is not even a pub.

It's a restaurant masquerading as dentist's waiting room.

Cold, clinical, aloof atmosphere with a tacky 70's fish tank, piped Julio Iglesias and signs displayed everywhere telling you what you can't do.

No welcoming, community feel in this place in a gorgeous village. Could be so much better.

Avoid.

This is the place if you want to experience pure tranquillity and the way an old English pub should be.

“mieonard”, on a previous review expressed concern that children under 14 years of age were excluded from the George. This gentleman obviously has little knowledge of the era when the English pub was the envy of hostelries around the world. The no children ban gives parents and others the opportunity to escape from the world of Playstations and mobile texting and experience true serenity whilst enjoying good company and a quite drink.
The George at Nunney captures again this atmosphere and it’s crowded bar and restaurant hold testimony to the popularity of the Landlord and his traditional approach.

This is a sad time for the pub trade as we witness some of our finest houses closing with regular frequency. One wonders whether departure from the time honoured traditional pub to the continental style “bar” has hastened its demise.
MacDonalds are past masters of hosting sustenance for young parents and their children – why compete with them.
Welcome the Landlord who offers a route back to civility. Complete capitulation to the contemporary alternative is too distressing to consider.
I believe that even Mr “mieonard” might welcome the opportunity to seek the sanctuary of a true traditional pub and enjoy a child free environment every once in a while.

A word of warning: no children under 14 are allowed. The landlord (formerly of the Cross Keys, Corsley) seems to be anti-children, or anti-bad parenting of misbehaved children.
A blanket ban seems a little harsh. We went to the much more welcoming Talbot at Mells instead.

Lovely old historic building in a pretty village. Just popped in for a swift drink while on a bike ride, so can't make any in depth comments. The bar was comfortable. The rest of the clientele were "mature" and there for lunch, so the food may be worth a try. The nerby ruined castle is worth a look.
