The George

Cavendish 01787 280248

A warm welcome awaits you in this 16th century restaurant with rooms. The George is situated on the edge of the village green in Cavendish, positioned in between the popular villages of Clare and Long Melford and just a short drive from the timeless village of Lavenham.

Since taking over The George in October 2010, co-owners Lewis Bennet & Bonnie Steel have achieved 2 Rosettes and four gold stars from the AA & Visit Britain tourist guides.

The emphasis at The George is on the quality of food and customer service. The menus offer a wide range of dishes to suit all tastes and budgets. The menus change frequently and are guided by the seasons. We aim to use the highest quality, sustainably sourced ingredients and utilise our garden to grow seasonal items such as baby leaf, beetroot, edible flowers, tomatoes and herbs to use on the menu.

The George has five contemporary rooms available for bed and breakfast, priced from £50 single occupancy and £85 double. We also have an extra bed and travel cot facilities so families can stay as well. See the Rooms page for more information or use our online booking facility and BOOK ONLINE.
