About us

This beautifully refurbished Coaching Inn provides more than just a welcome place to eat and sleep. Bought by the Furbank family in 2003, restored and refurbished over a nine month period, giving life back to the 18th century building, to provide everything a modern traveller would expect. Twelve individually designed bedrooms, cloud soft bedding, drencher showers and Elemis toiletries, as well as the essential WiFi.

Food is at the centre of the bustling bar and brasserie. We offer everything from bar snacks to private dinner packages. Wines, ales cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks complement the choice you make. From morning coffee to evening drinks, the bar is a great place to catch up with friends and family.

If you have a special occasion to celebrate – weddings, anniversaries and birthdays, we work with you to make sure your event is as individual as you are and you can relax and enjoy yourself.

Situated just off the A1 in Cambridgeshire, the George Hotel and Brasserie is an ideal location to meet and do business. Our private rooms are perfect for management and executive meetings organised to suit you. Refreshments we provide will keep your mind focussed.

Our team of staff are here to help, offer a friendly face, and a warm welcome.

Customer Testimonials

Dear Richard, I am writing to express our gratitude for the wonderful service we got from you and your staff over last weekend. Everything was as we had hoped it would be from the moment we arrived until we left on Sunday morning. We would be grateful if you could thank all the staff but especially Katie, Alexandra, Felipe  and chef who took the time to sort out my dietary arrangements.  As you knew it was a special celebration for us, and your excellence helped make it a weekend never to be forgotten by all who attended. Thanks again.

Thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect. We couldn’t ask for a better venue to celebrate our special day. You must have worked your magic as everything appeared to run smoothly, the staff were amazing and the food was extremely tasty – our guests are still talking about it now! Thanks again for all your help.

Steve and I would like to say a huge thank you for ensuring our wedding was perfect. Your sound advice and professional staff worked hard and the quality of service was impeccable. Katie, thank you for keeping Steve and I calm and reminding us of the structure and taking on the role of Toastmaster throughout our day. We were really pleased with the final presentation of the room and seeing all the little favours, cards, flowers and tea lights come together so well on our tables and in the bar area. It was everything Steve and I wanted and imagined for our for our special day. The food was just amazing with many commenting on how delicious the menu was. Thank you for reproducing our bespoke prawn cocktail it meant a lot to us. Hats off and thanks to all the catering staff. Every interaction with the staff was flawless.

Over the last few years my friend and I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting at the George for lunch and then a trip into the shop. For the last year I have been unable to get out and about as I used to and had to have a knee replacement. On Monday we once again had lunch, and then into the shop. A real treat for me. I am writing to say thank you to all of you for your kindness. When my desert came round the rim of the plate was written in chocolate ‘Welcome Back’. How lovely! And we were greeted warmly on our arrival. Looking forward to the next time!

Would you please especially thank the chef and kitchen staff for the really amazing food, Alexandra for being really helpful and pleasant, the bar staff for their patience and helpfulness and yourself for organising and coordinating it all.

We would like to thank all the staff at the George for making our daughter’s wedding a wonderful occasion. The food was excellent and the service was attentive but not intrusive the whole time. The atmosphere in the hotel itself was so intimate that it felt as though we were at home. All the wedding guests (including the children) seemed to enjoy themselves immensely, we certainly did! The management and staff are to be congratulated on their kindness, helpfulness and professionalism throughout. Thank you so much.
Christine and Danny. November 2017

Hi Katie, We didn’t get to see you this morning, so wanted to send you a quick email to say a big thank you! You and your staff have been amazing throughout planning our wedding and yesterday. All our guests yesterday and this morning felt welcome and at home and that’s exactly how we wanted it to feel. Jamie and I in particular felt from you and your staff that nothing was too much trouble and all staff were super helpful and attentive. Thank you particularly for accommodating our personal, more ‘outside of the box’ requests such as the cinema room idea…it went down a treat with the children! Warmest regards,
Amee & Jamie October 2017

Just a note to thank you and your team for making Tom’s 40th lunch absolutely perfect. The canapes and champagne were divine, the orangery looked fabulous and our lunch was delicious. The wines were rather enjoyed too! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and thought the day was ‘first class’. Your attention to detail on the day, Amanda was fantastic. You really are a pro coping with unplanned speeches, falling photo boards and fizz spilling in meals, you remained calm and cool! Sincere thanks from myself and Tom to you and all your team.
