Review on The George at Baldock
The George is located in the heart of the historic market town of Baldock in Hertfordshire, founded by the Knights Templar, the town was at one time a major staging post between London and the North. After being closed for a number of years, the former coaching inn dating back to the 15th century was re-opened in April 2013 following an extensive refurbishment. The interiors have been updated and the light and airy open-plan dining room has a contemporary décor, with an impressive inglenook fireplace taking centre stage.
The inn is very much part of of the community and still thrives as a local watering hole, but it's the food that is now the focal point. The kitchen is keen to source much of its produce from local farmers and growers for its lunch, afternoon teas and dinner menus. Enjoy starters in the shape of pan seared scallops with pea purée, chorizo lardons, pancetta, lemon and herb oil or ham hock terrine with quail egg, potato salad and potato strings. Main courses could be as classic as beer battered cod loin with tartare sauce, mushy peas and triple cooked chips or as contemporary as chicken roulade stuffed with sun blushed tomatoes and goat's cheese with rosti potato and tomato sauce. Make sure you leave room for one of their tempting desserts such as the caramel trio consisting of crème caramel, banoffee pie and sticky toffee pudding or the apple and rhubarb cheesecake with rhubarb and custard ice-cream.
