user reviews of the George On The Green, Holyport

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

Some great low beams and pictures of the Minor Counties clash with the touring Australian cricket team in days of yore are plus points while there is more of a locals' feel than at the nearby Belgian Arms in its current incarnation. Ales were also good with the Rebellion brewery represented twice. Too many shiny hand pumps for the likes of Peroni however and some shocking music.

Closed on a Monday so don't bother.

Some of the former locals from the Belgian Arms have now move over to the George. It's clean, the beer is okay, staff are friendly. It seems it's populsr with diners. I haven't eaten there so can't comment on the food. On the face it seems a pleasant enough hostelry.

Good first impressions when I walked in. Low beams and looked olde worlde. Some interesting Hotspur and boxing memorabilia displayed near the toilets and other various signed sporting photos dotted around. 3 real ales on offer; same as 2 years ago. Pride, Rebellion & another I forget the name of
Unfortunately, I was behind a group of 2 adults and 8 children, who must've been having a day out from their shoe, in the queue. The 3 barmaids behind the bar didn't seem too perturbed by my waiting though and took a few minutes to get served
There being a fair on the green, outside drinks were being served in plastic. Hate that but rules are rules and not pub's fault. Or so I thought. Another customer next tome had all their drinks served in glasses which they duly took outside. When I pointed this out, the barmaid asked the landlady if she should go and get them back. The landlady said no, I served them, I know them. I enquired if it was one rule for one and one rule for others, to which the po-faced old bint said yes, without even a hint of embarrassment or shame. I was gobsmacked
The pub then appeared to close in secret, much to the chagrin of the outside drinkers, with no warning or last orders called. No doubt the people drinking from glasses got a phone call or were paged to let them know
Holyport such a nice village and this put a spoiler on whole day. Obviously the staff here don't care too much for outside visitors
Belgian Arms far more welcoming

A traditional pub interior, but really now more a gastro pub. A selection of 3 cask ales to choose from, I think it was London Pride, Rebellion and one other. My pint was excellent. We’ve visited here twice at weekends in recent months. Once at lunch time, the second time for an evening meal. The place appears popular at weekends and even though the restaurant was full on a Friday evening there appeared to be a crowd of regulars meeting for a pint in the adjacent but small bar area there is a good atmosphere about the place. During both our visits the landlord and staff were friendly, welcoming and efficient. The food was both affordable and to a very good standard.

I've drank in worse pubs.
