The George At Cley

THE GEORGE is an inn with history. A victim of the devastating floods of 1953, home to the inaugural meeting of the Norfolk Naturalist Trust and a focal point for bird watchers for many years thanks to its ‘bird bible’, it sits imposingly over the salt marshes looking out toward Blakeney Harbour. Here, tranquility is on the doorstep, thanks to the huge skies, acres of colourful salt-marsh and mile-upon-mile of un-spoilt beaches that are also a haven for wildlife. Here at Cley-next-the-Sea, with it’s narrow roads, no streetlights and a traditional red phone-box, you will find a beautiful, idyllic, north Norfolk brick and flint village that is bursting with character and filled with local culture. No wonder so many people are enchanted by this stretch of coastline. Dogs are welcome in the bar and front restaurant, we have a great kiddies menu and on the cold Autumn/ winter days we have a roaring open fire going to warm up the cockles of your heart.

    The menu in the evening was a little disappointing and had a very limited choice, we thought his may be because local ingredients where used but there was very little evidence of any local produce, crab, fish, lamb, pork or chicken.The location was lovely. We where allowed to take the dog, and walked over Cley Marshes in the evening sun, and saw an owl hunting, and the sunset over Cley windmill, magical. The hotel was very clean and our room nicely decorated. We had an evening drink in the sunshine in the garden. The black pudding at breakfast was the nicest I have ever tasted, not traditional, with onion, but very good.

    Our room had a quality but cosy feel and a great view . We saw some beautiful sun rises and sun sets. It was all very relaxed and the staff created a lovely atmosphere. We throughly revelled in the menu choices. An added bonus, an renowned bird watching area. All in all, an experience we will hopefully soon repeat.

    We stayed at the George at Cley for 2 nights in March. Our room was large and had recently been refurbished. It looked out onto the marshes - a great base if you are birdwatching. Breakfasts were excellent but we didn't eat in the restaurant as were visiting family in the area. Staff were all super friendly and we would definitely stay again. Only negative was no a lot of car parking which was fine in March but could be a problem in high season.
