A nice village pub, nothing special in architecture or design but very freindly bar staff. Had their own brand of ale called dragonfire, which was nice enough

What I like about the George is that it serves good food in restauarant style without making the casual drinker feel unwelcome. While we hoovered up some very acceptable steak and chips on Saturday night towards the back of the pub, the front was doing good business as, well, a proper pub. (Unlike some places which have turned into restaurants that just happen to serve beer)

The Sheps Spitfire was in good form and the staff were lovely. We thoroughly approve.

Great atmosphere, really hospitable Bar Staff and the food was GREAT,

Definitely worth a return visit.

A friend and I left the White Horse at Sandway last night. We'd arrived earlier to find the four hand pumps, only one having a Whitstable Bay Stout clip. After a lengthy wait she began to serve a coupleof poor-ish pints. "No bitter?" "No it's gone off and I probably won't have time to put another on". Oh well. With a live band about to start, 50 or 60 people and a bout of double parking we hurried away from the unwelcoming place, and visited the George.

What a contrast! Friendly pretty barmaids, clean fresh smelling bar and a good pint of 'Late Red'. The blackboard listed some tasty sounding meals but we'll have to return for that. Isn't it strange how two neighbouring pubs can be so different? We'll definitely be returning to the George again.

Wow! Visited The George Inn in Leeds Village for a few beers on Saturday night (6th November 2010) and had a great time, friendly staff, fantastic atmosphere and felt very relaxed indeed just like pubs should be even though the place was packed! Wasn't rushed and never waited to be served. The beers and lagers tasted very good too! Decided to go back for Sunday lunch (7th November) as we always judge pubs on their Sunday roasts! No need to worry as this place certainly does a top roast - I had the half shoulder of lamb and it was a big plate of tasty food. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone - always welcomed, friendly faces and smiles - I've been to pubs where I don't get a welcome nor a friendly smile. Will go back there very soon!

Spent a very pleasant evening here and seems a friendly pub with a good menu. Master brew and Whitstable Bay on handpump. It was Friday and quite busy but easy to chat and relax.

On the whole a very unpleasant experience. Been twice now and wont be returning. I am a vegetarian and asked for their only vegetarian option, the Lasagne. I received the meat one, and didn't find out until I tasted it. I immediately spat it out, the short haired waitress that had taken my order just stared at me disgustedly.

I explained to her that I am vegetarian and that she must have made a mistake. No apology, she just whimpered, "Well you get what you ordered, and you ordered the lasagne bolognese". She then promptly disappeared.

After a couple of minutes she then returned and took my plate, she stated that they will change the meal, although refused to admit her mistake.

After waiting a further 20 minutes she then returned and hastily dumped the plate on the table and walked off. Giving me the distinct impression that I had done something to offend her.

Well I left the majority of it as the friends I was with had already finished their meal, we paid and left. This was the second bad experience I have had, the first is another story.

Characterful and friendly village inn, and enough staff to deal with the busy periods. Partially opened out, with several dining areas laid out as requireed to deal with the expected demand that day. Four handpumps, with two clipped as Master Brew and the other pair for Spitfire (3.30, but always well kept). Handy for visitors to nearby Leeds Castle (the so-called "loveliest castle in the world").

Nice friendly pub. Food good and not too fancy. They make sure you are welcome and catered for, without delay. Can get busy on Sunday lunch, but never seems to get out of control, with no major delays in service at all. Great pie & chips!

Stopped at this pub on a Thursday Night in our Motorhome. Well kept beer and great food. Everyone very helpful. Well worth a visit.
