|After paying ¬£12.10 for a round in the nearby Dering Arms, I was happy to only forego a ¬£5 note in this village pub. Although I did have a pack of crisps in the Dering Arms. The George is a friendly village local. Ales were Harveys Sussex Best Bitter, Brakspear Bitter, Westerham Grass Hopper & Morland Old Speckled Hen. Cider was Biddendens Dry from a jug in the fridge. The bar is nice, with pictures of the village sports teams on the walls. There appeared to be a separate dining area. But they also had complimentary vegetarian sausages and parsnips on the bar.The garden at the side is very nice. Although the number of wasps meant everybody eventually sought solace indoors. I was struggling to work out how to remove the rather large wasp doing a backstroke in my cider, when my son decided that the best method was to tip it all out on the grass! My visit still ended up being so much cheaper than the Dering Arms! This one was of the best pubs of the day. Dogs and children escaping wasps are allowed in the bar.|

|Visited The George twice in one day. First for a cup of tea (there's a distinct lack of tearooms in this part of Kent) and then later to partake of some fine ales at their beer festival and to eat good home-cooked food. Friendly staff and a characterful pub.|

|Despite living only in the next parish, I hadnít been in here for years, so I took the opportunity provided by an evening meeting in Ashford to pop in on my way home. A foul March night, the pub was fairly quiet, but the locals welcomed me, and I joined them in reminiscence of local worthies. |
The beer range was fairly limited-Adnams Bitter, Brakspears and a couple of others, but my Adnams was in top order.The pub hosts a couple of beer exhibitions, the next being in April. The newish couple in charge previously ran the Woolpack in Warehorne, and similarily high standards are evident here, though we havenít yet eaten at the George. 7/10
