The George


Emily Brighton's family has run The George for three generations and it's a must-visit for the many walkers passing the door. Located up above Dovedale, this pretty, stone-built pub offers a bar with a fire, historic artefacts, portraits of locals and a wide choice of real ales, including Banks's Sunbeam and Jennings Cumberland. There's an original simplicity about the dining room and snug, with their lime-plastered walls, farmhouse furniture, candlelight and fresh flowers. The kitchen's passion for locally sourced food is evident from the organic garden, source of abundant vegetables, salad leaves and herbs. A winter lunch menu might offer pheasant rillettes, celeriac remoulade, cornichons and toast; or smoked Scottish salmon, winter coleslaw and horseradish cream, followed by pappardelle, crème fraîche, woodland mushroom and roast squash; or a venison burger. Leave a space for apple and blackberry crumble with custard.
