Review on The George of Stamford, The Oak Room Restaurant
One of England's most venerable hostelries that has been welcoming tourists, travellers and even royalty for literally hundreds of years. Famous names from the past have included Charles I and William III, who would surely recognise some of the original mullioned windows, flagstoned hallways, old oak panelling and creaking floorboards that give the George much of its captivating character.
Meals in the handsome dining room - candlelit at night - are as traditionally patriotic as can be, with roasts on a silver carving wagon and splendid cheeses and puddings wheeled around on a trolley. Stalwarts such as grilled lobster, whole Dover sole and duck with sage and onion stuffing are bolstered by a few more contemporary ideas including scallops with pork belly and cider dressing or maize-fed chicken poached in lemongrass with Asian greens. The wine list is a stunner.
For a relaxed and informal snack, guests can enjoy the same outstanding quality of food and service in the Garden Lounge - a light and airy dining area adorned with tropical plants - or go alfresco in the ivy-clad courtyard with its cobblestones, colourful parasols and hanging baskets.
