Respond to Review of The Prince George
Review: The George USED to be bloomin' great but the people who run it these days probably never frequented the place in it's glory days as the standards have fallen dramatically. Although it is a still a vegetarian pub I very much doubt if many (or any?) of the staff are of this persuasion for a lot of the menu consists of 'pretend' meat dishes in a similar way to what you have plonked in front of you when visiting a meat eaters house for dinner (IE: carnivores think that unless it LOOKS and smells like a meat dish it isn't really a proper meal) This is all a bit of a tragedy because the George was really one of the best veggie pubs in the country, fantastic food and great beer all within staggering distance of Brighton Station. How I miss the 'George Salad' with its roasted veg and sun dried tomatoes sprinkled with toasted seeds, the sumptuous Mediterranean mezzo platter and the generously proportioned 'George burger' - and then there were the ever changing specials of the day on the blackboard. Those were the days when they had a decent chef..... it seems to me whoever is manning the galley these days is cooking by numbers. I will check in to the George again in a while though hoping for the best so if the owners happen to read this I do so hope they can restore the culinary reputation of this fine pub apon which I will re-assess my review accordingly.
