We were here a year ago and had a lovely meal. This time not so much. Mixed drink I ordered was insipid, that of my friend far too sweet. Several menu items were not available and the kitchen was unwilling to modify any menu items to make them gluten free. The Zaatar lamb was overcooked and stringy and the size of the meat portion minute for the price ($34). My steak was charred, dry and crunchy on the outside, while the inside was rare (as requested) but only lukewarm. The best part of the meal was the tasty warm cauliflower salad and the fresh and crisp greens served with the mains.

We were here both Friday and Saturday night last weekend! Why? Really interesting menu - try the beetroot risotto, friendly welcoming staff - you don't have to be a local to feel at home here, and cosy in this really chilly weather - at least two open fires going when we were there. Lovely to find our own 'local'. We'll be back for sure!

I raved about your venue to friends. Sadly on the night 80 percent of the meals were substandard. The pasta dry and served cold with little to no flavour. The roast of the day again dry, cold and a huge let down. Thank goodness the pear dessert was great. Considering we were told the new chef had won a gold plate award it leaves one speechless.

It was a cold day in Kyneton but the Royal George had its fireplaces going and we sat and had a really excellent roast lamb shoulder accompanied by a couple of excellent craft beers. A 3 year old grandchild was there and a children's menu was available.
The male manager who served us was courteous and helpful and all in all it was a pleasant afternoon.
