Custard Favourite Places! The George At Wath!

Spring is in the air and the weather is starting to look promising!  At this time of year its always nice to start planning holidays or weekends away so I guess its time for me to tell you about another amazing place that Mr C and I have found that is fabulous in terms of quality but remarkably good on the old pocket!  Today its the turn of The George at Wath - just outside Ripon.

The George at Wath
After trawling the internet (we're good at that because we like a bargain!) - Mr Custard came across this lovely little Inn that is situated in a pretty little village called Wath.  The deal we found was as follows:  Dinner, bed and breakfast for £99.00 (in a standard double) - this was on a Saturday night too!  Should you want a slightly bigger room there are other packages available too at not much more but to be honest, the standard double that we had was really nice so I personally think you are better to save the extra money for another glass of vino or two!

The food at this friendly little place was amazing!  After a morning wander around Ripon, Mr C and I decided to go straight to the hotel as they had a check in time of 12pm (where do you get that these days?).  After a very friendly greeting by the staff who showed us to our room, we headed straight down to the bar for a bite to eat and a beer!  To our contentment they had a fab little tapas menu going on that sounded right up our street and boy we were not disappointed!  Yum yum!  Absolutely divine is all I can say!

Scrumptious tapas at The George!
After a lovely lunch we chilled out for the afternoon until it was time for the evening meal!  Whilst sat in the cozy restaurant waiting to be served, we overheard another couple talking about the high standards of the chef and they were certainly not wrong either as the food - both the taste and the presentation was outstanding!  I had beer battered haddock with dripping cooked chips (minus the mushy peas which should have come with it because I HATE peas!) and Mr C had steak and ale pie cooked in Theakstons bitter (please see the photos below if you want to drool!).

Breakfast in the morning was just as good as the rest of the food and if you are looking for a cozy, relaxed and friendly atmosphere at an outstanding price, but in a high quality surrounding then we can highly recommend this place - its fab!

Just one little tip though - the three course dinner included in the price is from the early bird menu which only runs until 6.45pm and if you order later than this they won't let you have it!  However, after this time they give you an allowance of £15.00 per person from the normal evening menu (which we had) and if you only want one course the rest of the money is knocked off your drinks bill so we were happy with that!

In a nut shell, The George at Wath is a lovely little village Inn that is spotlessly clean and has been beautifully refurbished.  The standard of the food is outstanding and the staff are very friendly - I think this one definitely deserves a 'Custard Favourite Places' award! 

Now get off our blog and get it booked!  You will not be disappointed!
