Independent & proud. Since our 2016 restoration we've believed in creating good times. Being somewhere for everyone to feel at home.

Find our pub & inn in the pretty village of Maulden, in the heart of the Bedfordshire countryside. Nestled on the famous Greensands Ridge Walk & a 30 minute walk to the market town of Ampthill.

Everything at The George is lovingly prepared onsite. Every dish fresh where possible & thoughtfully sourced.

    Went with 2 friends, Sat in the covered booths in the courtyard. Food was OK, but pricey for what you get. Drinks expensive. It's a very popular place so quite noisy, had trouble hearing the conversation all night. They allow dogs in restricted area and there were a couple of woofy ones there that night. Beware they add a 10% service charge, which is mentioned on the menu. I doubt I would go again.

    We sat in the outdoor, covered courtyard. What a beautiful space the owners have created. Fabulous atmosphere, efficient and really friendly staff, plus fabulous food, what more could we have asked for! The George Inn is a privately owned bistro pub and it shows in all the personal touches. Must be good employers too as the staff are all so friendly, upbeat and happy. Absolutely fabulous to see The George Inn thriving again, especially after a few very difficult years. Well done to the owners & staff.

    My first visit to this exceptional venue, found all the staff friendly and helpful. It was their 6th birthday bash so was very busy and more or less fully booked out. Great live music all afternoon. The courtyard was perfect and the food was top draw. Couldn’t really fault it which for me is very rare. Already booked my next visit. Thankyou everyone at the George Inn.

    Very disappointed with the chilli sweet potato dish .The pudding was very underwhelming! It’s being run by what felt like the local youth club with no direction . I’ve always loved the George , but was very disappointed .

    Nice looking place (albeit a bit unauthentic in a commercial way). Our waitress was not knowledgeable or attentive. We waited 30mins to be asked for dessert we were bored of waiting and asked for the bill. The food was good... but we only had an antipasti platter and some chorizo. Good value, but honestly this pub is just a well dressed Whetherspoons.

    Food wise - not good. Three out of 4 of us had the fish and chips which was tasteless and the chips were too big for my liking. On the plus side the service was very good and the waitresses were very pleasant and helpful. The ambience was good and this is certainly a very pleasing place to come for a drink with friends. I would definitely come again and try something different on the menu.

    We’ve visited the George Inn a few times over the years and it keeps getting better. The menu was varied enough to cater for our party of 5 including vegetarians. We each chose a different main course and every one was a winner ! The service was, as always spot on. Professional yet Informal without being causal. I am looking forward to the next special occasion 😁

    Staff were very welcoming. Sat at our table and was greeted by our server in literally seconds from seating. She was very pleasant and helpful. Our food and drink order was taken we didn't have to wait to long for our food order. Both our meals were very good recommend the salmon as it was perfectly cooked. Overall we'd return again this was our 3rd visit
