Independent & proud. Since our 2016 restoration we've believed in creating good times. Being somewhere for everyone to feel at home.

From cosy pub dining, to eating alfresco on our covered, heated courtyard. A private party in our room 'upstairs' - even an overnight stay in one of seven ensuite rooms; The George makes the most comfortable of backdrops, whatever the occasion.

Find our pub & inn in the pretty village of Maulden, in the heart of the Bedfordshire countryside. Nestled on the famous Greensands Ridge Walk & a 30 minute walk to the market town of Ampthill.

Everything at The George is lovingly prepared onsite. Every dish fresh where possible & thoughtfully sourced.

    As our first time at The George, we were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the ambiance was. The food was also spectacular (and we have very high food standards, my husband is a chef). The service was incredibly lacking unfortunately. We had to physically get up out of our chairs and find someone three separate times, and were left without the drinks we had ordered while we ate our meal. I am hopeful that was a one off, we will be back to visit bc the food was amazing.

    Excellent Sunday roast. We were well looked after, but the meal was spoilt for us by the incessant mindless noise (can't call it music) playing. Even the corridor to the toilets had piped music at far too high volume. A shame - we would love to go back but that loud music has just put us off. Recommended? - well, if you are happy with having to talk loudly over the music then yes, the food was very good, but if you don't like music produced with constant drum machine rhythm, I would say perhaps not. Maybe outside would be OK, but not when the weather is getting colder.

    Fish and chips plentiful and tasty, roast beef cooked well, still moist, lovely fluffy potatoes, wasn't keen on the shared vegetable bowl. Vegetarian and vegan choices interesting but would have preferred more vegetables or salad rather than lots of flat bread. Vegan chilli tasty rather than spicy which we appreciated. Good attentive service from staff, timely delivery. Only thing we don't like about the place is the music !

    We have enjoyed the food here on the 2 occasions we have eaten however when we asked for the bill we planned to pay by cash only to be told that due to covid no change could be given, and they add on a service charge that was just short of £5. We wasnt happy about this and luckily I had my debit card to pay. Seems like they have not moved on from Covid which is a real shame.

    Starters were next level delicious!!! Absolutely amazing - always are ! Been to this pub many times and always love it. Staff always so so lovely. Excited to come for the roast and it was unfortunately terrible. Beef was grey and cold, Yorkshire pudding was burnt, the potatoes had obviously been sat around for a long time as they were bone dry with chewy skins. So so disappointed. I have much higher expectations for the George. Which we usually love and recommend.

    Food was really tasty and portion sizes good. Lovely pub with great garden and conservatory…. Very dog friendly too Only negative is that the service was a bit hit and miss, one young gentleman was really helpful and filled in when requests with our waitress for drinks, water, menus went unanswered. Definitely be back

    Great food but seated in patio area (not inside as requested on booking) and at very noisy spot on path to the bar for everyone outside. Spoiled the experience as couldn’t hear to talk above foul mouthed revellers. Staff offered to move us inside - but only after our main course was cleared. Lovely place, but need to decide who they would rather attract as not a place for a quiet early dinner as a couple. Disappointed as good reviews locally and maybe midweek is a different experience.

    My second visit to this pub, it really has the outside space perfectly set up, staff are attentive but discrete, food is of a very high standard, and again I had to have a double helping of dessert as it was so good. All of this perfectly complimented with live music of the highest standard. Easy access, easy parking, good quality toilet facilities.

    Went with 2 friends, Sat in the covered booths in the courtyard. Food was OK, but pricey for what you get. Drinks expensive. It's a very popular place so quite noisy, had trouble hearing the conversation all night. They allow dogs in restricted area and there were a couple of woofy ones there that night. Beware they add a 10% service charge, which is mentioned on the menu. I doubt I would go again.

    We sat in the outdoor, covered courtyard. What a beautiful space the owners have created. Fabulous atmosphere, efficient and really friendly staff, plus fabulous food, what more could we have asked for! The George Inn is a privately owned bistro pub and it shows in all the personal touches. Must be good employers too as the staff are all so friendly, upbeat and happy. Absolutely fabulous to see The George Inn thriving again, especially after a few very difficult years. Well done to the owners & staff.
