I called in Sunday lunch on 15-Sep, whilst on a tour of Derbyshire.

I asked for a pint of Youngs Bitter, poured without the sparkler. The barman refused the 'sprinkler' request, saying it was house rules and made the beer look bad; he said it may be the way it was serverd down south, but not here.

There seemed to be no point in arguing with someone who didn't understand beer... I mean:

1. I am from the north
2. the beer is brewed in the south
3. the customer is always right (beer is better from the barrel, if you can get it ike that); when I worked in a pub, so long as the customer wanted the beer in a legal glass to the legal amount, and was going to pay, we served it.

On a recent tour of N Yorks, every pub was happpy to serve 'sans sparkler' as they are mostly everywhere; why does a pub have to be prescriptive on a matter of how the beer is served?

Excellent.Possibly the best place in Castleton, which is sayng something as the standards are veryhigh. Superb home-cooked food, good choice of beers. It does get busy, the sign of a good place, so get there early!!

Visited castleton from America with my wife. We spent 2 weeks in London and decided to visit a different part of England. We looked online and saw castleton. we decided to book 1 week at The George. When we arrived we were welcomed by the staff. We received our room key and got a tour by one of the staff members named kaylie. she was kind and made us feel welcomed. When we opened the door to our room (room 4) we were amazed! the room was incredibly large, spacious, and clean as can be. After unpacking we planned to visit all the pubs. After going downstairs to have a quick drink we enjoyed it to much too leave. we spent the whole day here having a laugh with the landlord and locals. One of the staff members was quizzing some friends on his break and he gladly let us join in we enjoyed our first day beyond expectations. The next day we went around the village visiting the other pubs they were all disappointing bad ale,bad service, and not very warm or cozy.our third day was spent seeing all the caverns and sights castleton has to offer ( highly recommend blue John mine). We spent the rest of our time at the George along with sightseeing. I have no complaints and neither did my wife( that's a first) castleton is a great place to visit. All the caverns and mines which castleton is know for. If the George keeps it up it will be more popular than the caverns itself.

Very good pub, with excellent food and some good beers too. Deservedly popular, so get there early on weekend evenings unless you want a long wait for food.

We visited here once or twice over Christmas & New Year 2010, as as usual was impressed with the beer quality, price and staff although Chris could do with a "keeping the fire alight course". This is a really great traditional english pub and well worth a visit.
