THE GEORGE & FALCON - Warnford road, Warnford

I must confess, this review is a little bit late. We visited this pub a good few weeks ago, and it's taken me a while to get it on line.

I must also confess that we knew this pub was good before we started our rigorous examinations. We'd eaten here not long before we started reviewing, so thought it time to return and get something down on record.

As far as we're concerned, this is a member of pub royalty. As soon as you step foot inside, you can tell the pub fairies have been at work. It's warm and welcoming, it has a sense of class about it whilst retaining the feel of a real pub. To put it simply, this is a place where things are done properly.

After careful consideration, Dad chose the 8 ounce steak from the specials board at a decent price of £14. I went a bit dullard with fish and chips. It is worth pointing out at this point that the landlord and staff here are friendly, hospitable and genuine. Something that shouldn't be overlooked or underestimated. We sat back and relaxed in that beautiful atmosphere that you can only find in a first rate pub. Before we knew it, the food had arrived and with it the hard work that we call reviewing. It's not easy eating in a pub and then writing down what you thought of it.

My fish, chips, peas and tartar sauce were all absolutely perfect, with a special mention going out to the delicious homemade chips. Dad also received those same delicious chips with his steak, this was also perfect. If memory serves, it was delivered with tomato and mushrooms to keep the steak and chips company. Two perfect plates of food on a wonderful afternoon spent at the George and Falcon.

You've probably gathered by now that we love this pub. Why wouldn't you, when every box is ticked with one of those giant bingo pens. Not only is it a wonderful place to be, where you can find wonderful food and drink. It is also apparent that the people running things actually care about what they are doing. When all these ingredients are put together in one pot, a five star pub is born.
