|Sorry to say that I feel money has been spent ruining what was my favourite pub in Bridport. Went in 10 p.m. on a Friday night and there was hardly anyone in there. That says something.|

|First of all, disregard all previous reviews of the George, because it is under new management after a thorough refurbishment, and reopened in December 2013. |
Locals feared that Palmers would spend a fortune on ruining the place but in fact it has been well remodelled and enhanced without spoiling the pub's unique atmosphere. The management have listened to their customers and understand what makes the place work.
The ale is all Palmers, with Copper, IPA and Tally Ho! on tap. Bar space has been reduced with the coffee machine now on the counter, but there are plenty of tables and stools at the "drinking end" with the extended "dining end" having a good atmosphere, and the kitchen is still open to view. The food is excellent and reasonably priced - ranging from sandwiches and simple pub grub to restaurant standard dishes. There is still a separate "snug" which can be a haven on busy nights, and the place hasn't been as busy or as popular for ages. A great start for Julian and Annette and their staff.

|Old fashioned and amiably scruffy town centre local with good lunchtime food and most of Palmers range on tap.|
Gents upstairs and reasonably appointed apart from the fact that the lights are on a timer and there is no movement detector in the throne room. Make sure you make a mental note of where the door latch and paper are stowed when you go in. The disabled loo downstairs is a bit better - if the lights go out in there, just lob a spare loo roll in the direction of the door and they come back on.

|I'll declare an interest - I've known this pub for thirty years or more, and despite several changes of landlord it has always been a bit special to me. So much so that I changed jobs and moved house to be able to spend more time there. In all that time, it has hardly changed, right down to the cracked glass in the corridor, badly altered shelf behind the bar and dodgy painting of reposing sheep.|
The current landlady took over earlier this year (2012) and understands the soul of the place well. There has always been a careful balance here between a drinkers pub and a place to eat, with neither aspect dominating, and despite a couple of false starts, the food side is now set to pick up again with the return of the former guv'nor as chief cook.
The pub may be amiably scruffy, but the kitchen is spotless so have no fears about that. If you want a sanitised space with anonymous uniformed bar staff and cook-chill ready meals, Wetherspoons is nearby.
Occasional live music by the likes of Jim Reynolds, Custer's last blues band and other locals.

|Fairly pleasant place to have a pint, but as many pubs in this area very expensive.|
At least i could get served in here unlike across the road at wetherspoons
