The George and Pilgrim Hotel Glastonbury Reviews
Oct 24, 2007
Built in the 1400's, the George and Pilgrim Hotel is centrally located on Glastonbury High Street. It is definitely a building with character as it has maintained it's old, historic ambiance despite recent refurbishments.
The hotel lobby, bar and restaurant areas feature some magnificent wall paintings by local artist Yuri Leitch, in keeping with Glastonbury's reputation for magic and mystery. The antique decor makes you feel like you've stepped back in time and the building itself is said to be haunted.
While I did not stay in the Hotel itself, I did frquent the bar for a few drinks (the mead was DIVINE) and an absolutely delicious meal. The restaurant has an A La Carte menu serving freshly prepared home cooked food. I tried the fish and chip platter and it was probably one of the best I've had with its massive wedge chips, juicy fish and incredibly tasty tartar sauce. The chocolate tart was rich and absolutely exquisite, a perfect way to end an incredible meal.
The service was fabulous as the staff were very friendly and smiley. This place is supposed to be great for events and special occasions and is more of a family and quiet-evening sort of place rather than loud and rowdy.
For more action, I suggest going to the Backpackers Hostel and Bar a few doors down.
