IT IS ALL ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS
Our food is all about freshness and flavour. The menu changes daily and is completely dependent on what our suppliers have available every morning. All of our dishes are created in-house and whilst we are always adding new creations to our repertoire there will always be firm favourites that keep our loyal customers returning again and again – such as our famous Steak and Kidney Pudding and of course Sunday lunch wouldn’t be Sunday lunch without a roast!
Our philosophy is very simple – to provide good food and good service in a beautiful location.
We take great pride in the fact that all of our dishes are freshly prepared in-house. We know that to produce good food, you need to start with good ingredients and we firmly believe that wherever possible, all our ingredients should be locally sourced and responsibly produced. Fortunately, the abundance of quality produce from local suppliers makes this philosophy a reality.
Combine this simple philosophy with an inviting, warm and relaxed family atmosphere and you have The George.
OUR SMALLHOLDING & ANIMALS
We have our very own smallholding just down the road from The George. This gives us the opportunity to raise our own animals. We know their pedigree, and that they have lived happy free range lives.
We are currently raising pigs and have just taken delivery of 50 turkeys. The turkeys will live free range for the rest of the year and will no doubt be very happy with us.
We do our utmost best to make sure that all our animals have happy healthy lifestyles which is reflected in the flavour and quality of their meat.
LOCAL PRODUCERS OF SPECTACULAR FARE
At a time when there are so many concerns about the provenance and quality of fresh produce, we are so lucky to be in the Garden of England. We are surrounded by farms producing the best fruits, freshest vegetables and finest meats.
The sea provides wonderful fish and shellfish alike whilst local vineyards provide award winning wines.
The abundance of artisan producers ensure we have award winning local cheeses, distinctive Kentish gins and farm-pressed fruit juices and local game that is second-to-none.
