Reviews - The George and Pilgrim

3Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
1 High Street , Glastonbury, BA6 9DP
Built in the 1400s, The George and Pilgrim is the oldest purpose-built pub in the South West of England. Situated in the heart of Glastonbury, it is steeped in history and old folk law. The building has a paneled stone frontage, mullion windows, and old oak beams. All 14 rooms feature a TV and tea and coffee-making facilities, and some have impressive draped four-poster beds. Guests are welcome to enjoy an aperitif or traditional ale in the charming Pilgrim’s bar. The hotel also has a comfortable restaurant with an à la carte menu, offering fresh, succulent homemade food. Licensed for Civil Ceremonies, The George & Pilgrim is a popular choice for weddings, holding functions for up to 90 guests and groups are made most welcome. Free on-site parking is also provided.

Glastonbury has been inhabited since Neolithic times and today it has more than its fair share of attractions and festivals. There is something to interest most tastes from Glastonbury Abbey that was the site of Edmund Ironside’s coronation as King of England in 1016, museums & churches to the interesting hippie shops selling books, charms, clothes and crystals. Step back in time and prepare to be overwhelmed by the charm of this hotel and the cultural town. Easily accessible to Milllfield, Street, and the city of Bristol, the George and Pilgrim look forward to welcoming you.

Ancient and Atmospheric, very friendly Inn
Terrific Hotel. The food is great and very very large. The Bar itself has ancient tables and carved stone windows. The Landlord and all the staff seem very friendly and seem to genuinely enjoy working there.
Reputedly haunted - I can guarentee it is (It drank all my wine ... it can't have been me). Ancient old room with comfortable beds. Modern shower.
Tip - To park at the back of the hotel,
* Go up the High street and turn left before the Zebra Crossing
* Go to the end of the road (Ignore the P sign to the right) and turn left
* Go to the end of the road and turn left
* Follow the P sign. The parking is almost directly at the back of the Pub

A cracking weekend away staying in Henry the 8th's old bedroom!!!
We have just got back from another cracking weekend in Glastonbury! This time we stayed at the George and Pilgrim Inn which having drank in there in the past is a place I have always wanted to stay but always thought it would be more expensive than other B&B's in the area but with laterooms.com it wasn't.
We stayed in the same room that Henry the 8th stayed in when divorcing Catherine of Aragon which is crazy! The Inn was the first purposed built Inn of its type within Southern England and was built back in the Fourteenth Century. You can see the history all around the building from its beautiful rooms to moody dark bar and nooks on the ground floor with its huge open fireplace and amazing leaded windows.
You could imagine Knights coming back from there battles and swilling gallons of ale from flagons as you partake in a couple of pints before venturing to tackle the local druids or walk up the Tor.
The staff were all very helpful as were the locals so safe to say I can't see us staying anywhere else in Glastonbury again when we return next year.
We thoroughly recommend the George and Pilgrim and can't wait to return!!

Excellent evening meal (again!) in the lounge bar, Try the steak, it's divine. Hotel has history and atmosphere and room reflects this with very old furniture. The bed was comfy and clean. The big downside for me was the hygiene. Room very dusty (thick layer on windowsills and lampshades and even inside the wardrobe. The shower cubicle had grime on the tiles and in the tray that must have been uilding up for quite a long time.

ist das Geld nicht wert - is not worth the money
Das Pub mit BuB und Zimmern ist von aussen alt und wunderschön, drinnen wurde leider seit längerem auf geschmackvolle Renovierung verzichtet und sich auf der schönen Fassade ausgeruht. Kein besonders netter Empfang und das Zimmer war OK, aber 75 Pfund für die Nacht mit Frühstück einfach nicht wert. Glastonbury ist als Ort auch nur Alt-Hippies und Esoterik-angehauchten zu empfehlen.
