A new regime has done nothing to dent the charms of this “fantastic gastropub in the middle of nowhere” – it’s “just as beautiful as ever” while still being “a real pub”, and “the food, always good, has got better if anything”. Top Tip – “they now run good value set-menu tasting evenings; huge credit to anywhere brave enough to run an all-vegetarian evening in the beautiful depths of rural Staffordshire!”

A new landlord at this Peak District pub “got all the locals worried but the good news so far is that nothing’s changed for the worse – it’s still a flower-filled elegant pub, just rooted enough that you could still come here for a pint, but with some seriously good cooking in the middle of a beautiful village…everything anyone could want!”

“Tuck yourself into The George, a quintessential English pub in the Peak District... and tuck into one of their amazing pies or a spot-on roast”; first-timers are “very pleasantly surprised” by the quality of the cooking.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
