A good sized pub on the main road through the village, this gives the impression of being more of an Italian restaurant these days with the pub’s website describing it as a “Ristorante, Bar and Pizzeria” and the pub sign having the restaurant name, La Collina, displayed prominently with The George being relegated to very small lettering underneath. Outside seating consisted of a small patio at the front, and a courtyard and beer garden at the back.

Consequently I was quite surprised when I got in to find that the main room at the front of the pub is quite a traditional bar with the restaurant operation being in a smaller room at the rear. The bar is split in to two halves, although it’s all one open space. There are rough wooden boards on the floor with a mixture of cream and deep red painted wallpaper on the walls. To the left was a large brick fire-place with an old clock above it and a wood burning stove which the friendly barman was keeping topped up, and in front of this were a couple of brown leather sofas whilst elsewhere the seating was conventional tables and chairs. A pool table was in the corner in the right hand half, and a football match was being projected on to the wall. Clearly their budget did not run to a proper screen and the image was badly out of focus.

Food wise, the menu was very much Italian influenced as previously noted, with plenty of pizza and pasta options as well as a handful of meat and fish dishes. The pricing structure seems a little odd, with most of the pasta dishes being in the £10 - £15 price range and pizza’s varying from £6.95 to £12.95. This is clearly overpriced, with my Penne con Pollo & Salsiccia Calabrese (Sauté chicken & spicy calabrese sausage with penne pasta topped with melted mozzarella) worth nowhere near the £13.95 listed on the menu. Not there was anything wrong with it, but it was a fairly basic pasta dish, certainly nothing out of the ordinary. However, there are a number of discount vouchers on their website, and I used a 30% off pasta deal, so £8.37 is much more reasonable. On the other hand, if you turn up without a voucher you may well feel somewhat hard done by.

Beers on tap were limited to just Greene King IPA as far as I could make out, although there was also a board advertising Adnam’s Lighthouse as a guest. Unfortunately there were no draft ciders available, which seems very odd in this day and age.

I have only been to this pub once towards the end of last year, but i and my friends were very impressed and really must make the effort to go more often. Friendly staff, great food, and excellent decor - check out the conservatory at the back. We went on a Pizza night, and they were excellent. Highly recommended.

the George Inn Little Brickhill has became my favourite place to eat & Drink. New owner only took over few a months ago but they have really put there stamp on it. The place is buzzing. The 4 of us went there last Friday, we had a starter to share called la campagna which is lots of fresh salami, grilled veg, mozzarella cheese and ciabatta, far better than any meat brazing boards in Milton Keynes. After, I had the Beef Beneventana,Roast Rib of beef with a Tomato Mushroom, Red Onion & red Pepper Sauce absolutely brilliant. Then to finish off i had a home made warm italian apple pie with ice cream which topped a fantastic meal.The Meal Cost Less than 25 Each real Value for Money. They were really busy but the girls really looked after us. After the meal with Sat in the Bar area for a Few more drinks a really enjoyable night out.

I was not very happy after my visit to this establishment. The only problem we had was with the food/service. Decor/atmosphere/staff/drinks/welcome were all excellent. Waited an hour to eat. Steak and chips- how could a trained chef undercook chips? Medium steak was very rare. Just the barest essentials on the plate. The tiniest cheesecake I've ever seen. 50 for two was greedy.
