user reviews of the George Inn, Weymouth

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

Closed for a month, following a large drug investigation and seven people arrested: "Officers found and seized substances believed to be Class A drugs along with a substantial amount of money" (BBC News). There seems a possibility it will be shut down for good. It was never anything special, though, and was always a little on the "rough" side. 5/10

My family & I were in Weymouth last week and saw The George Inn. From the outside with chalk board menu's looked good. We went back around 8pm and ordered some food. Service was poor but we were not in a hurry so were ok with this. Ordered food at the bar & paid for it and told up to an hour wait - most of the tables in the seating area upstairs were empty but decided to wait. An hour an 20 minutes later the food arrived - it was the worst food I have ever had!! Two of our party had choosen the Veal was was so over cooked it was like cardboard and served with veg that was so under cooked is was not edible. Another had fillet steak which was dry and over cooked. I had the Sea Bass which was very oillyThe and over cooked. Just when we thought things couldnt get any worst a heavy rock music band started playing so loud that we decided just to up & leave. Had I not paid for the meal before hand I certainly would not have paid. Also one of my party commented that the toilet was very dirty.

This is certainly my last visit to The Geoge Inn.

Agree with Ledger's first comment. But was there at lunchtime the week before but did not eat. One pint was enough. There are plenty better pubs in Weymouth.

Four of us visited this pub last night, we were very disappointed. We found it dirty, needing a makeover in all departments, toilets were not very clean. Dusty artificial flowers everywhere which should have seen the bin years ago. The only 2 positive things about this pub was the view over the harbour, the waitress was pleasant.

The starters were ok. We all ordered steaks, the T bone was without the bone and very small, the 8oz ribeye which is usually very tender was quite small, dry and although requested "medium rare" was medium well-done! the fillet was ordered medium but was "very rare", the steak which came with the mixed grill looked like a piece of cardboard, very over done.

Some extremely loud music started at around 9.15 which was Karioke we couldn't hear ourselves speak. This evening was one I want to forget.

We popped into this pub on Carnival day & can hand on heart say it will be our first & last visit. The pub itself seemed to have a lot of character, we had our two young girls with us whilst 3 separate incidents happened with pushing shoving abusive language & shouting matches, there was other families with children which is what has made me so annoyed that this pub allows children to visit YET these customers were drunk beyond belief (so why had they been served drinks to get them to that state), why say children allowed yet put them at risk. To top it all off we asked for our drinks to be put in plastic glasses only to walk outside & be confronted with the owner of this pub rudely telling us that those glasses cost her money & she stood waiting as we had to rush the drink, I did mention we had left the pub as so many fights breaking out apology just a rude manner & she should feel ashamed of herself for running a pub in that way. Complete waste of a gorgeous pub on such a lovely spot of Weymouth be managed like that. But then some are just concerned about their Tills ringing as opposed to earning a good reputation.

Made a return visit last week whilst in weymouth on Holiday. HAsd a pint of Piddle 4.1% Bitter. Was OK but the taste was not what I liked so had one and went to The Ship next door. Pub was deserted even though it was Easter week and there were lots of Holidaymakers

Just returned from a week in Weymouth and found this pub on the first night. Great Pint of Badgers Best Bitter for 2.50, for a 4% brew thats not bad and it was well kept. Nice touches on the bar FREE sweets for the Kids and FREE treats for the Dogs (Just help yourself). The pub is really three areas Upstairs Steak loft (no staff on the night we went) looks like you have to order at the bar yourself and get your own drinks. one end downstairs id a public bar area with pool table Juke box and where the live bands play on Fridays (gets very busy and music is loud). The other end downstairs is set for eating but you can sit and only drink if you want. large TV's showing music videos when I have been in but without sound. Some seating outside overlookig Harbour, only spoilt by the constant passing cars. late licence until midnight.

Nice setting, beers good if somewhat expensive. Didn't try the food.

Be careful, don't put your drink on the bar. If the customers don't pinch it then the bar staff must remove's happened to me three times in the last two visits.

This place is suffering from a split personality. Upstairs is an haute cuisine steak house. Excellent food that can't be bettered. Not cheap, but you get your money's worrth, and then some. For that, top marks, but this web site is about pubs....
Downstairs thee's three decent badger ales on the pumps, but it's the sort of place where the pikeys attempt to out-scumbag the chavs whilst watching any of four huge TV screens. And the graffitti in the toilets..... oh dear!
I can't help but feel this place needs to choose which part of the market to aim for.

Top marks for this one! I haven't got a bad word to say about the place. A great selection of beers, spirits, coctails and shooters. Some of the live bands i've seen there have been phenomenal. "What would scooby do"....excellent. Mind you, if you're feeling your age, or just want a quiet drink, UNLUCKY!! ha ha ha.

Beautifully positioned Pub on harbourside serving very well kept selection of Badger Ales. However, prices are very high, 3 a pint! Food available at lunch and evenings. However, food in evening only available in seperate restaurant

A lovely looking harbourside boozer. Aside from the glare of the fruit machines, soothing on the eye. Had a pint of bitter shandy (sorry purists) which was a beaut. If only the barmaid was as warm as the decor.............
