user reviews of the Lower Royal George, Scammonden

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Cosy pub in a bit of an old fashioned way, not sure whether it’s deliberately over the top cottagey or what. Nice and warm with fires and amenable landlord.
Beer-wise they had Stones, Rev James and something called Goose Eye Bitter which neither tasted nor looked like any Goose Eye Bitter I or the misuss have ever had. Should have know when a regular said “I’ll have the Reverend James, the Goose Eye’s a bit wishy-washy”. Hmm. But it was palatable enough. Didn’t try the other it looked a bit dark for my taste. Obviously we don’t entertain Stones any more.
Sunday lunch was ok-ish, we had mixed roast beef and pork; the meats were very good, stuffing not (uncooked?) and veg overdone with carrots left in water, new potatoes nice and gravy nice, as if it was actually made from the meat juices – now this is unusual. Strange that the “roast” tatties (ie deep-fried) appeared to be bought-in and warmed up. Ambiguity about the bill as well – be sure to check.
Ok pub, but don’t make a special journey.

I don't disagree with beermonitor, but just beware this pub still closes 3-7pm on weekends!

I visit this pub several times a week. It is an increasingly rare example of a family run country eating house. Steve and Margaret will be celebrating 25 years here in 2007. There is always Stones Bitter (not my personal favourite but well kept) and a rotating guest bitter, usually 4 - 4.5%abv. (Well's Bombardier, Copper Dragon, Spitfire, Rev James, H+H etc). The beer moves quickly and is always in excellent condition. The excellent food is all home coooked by Margaret and is renowned for being enormous portions of simple traditional fayre at very reasonable prices. This is evident by the quantity of repeat business from regular customers. The pub itself is definately more of a Country Eating House but drinkers are very welcome. Boooking is recommended especially at week ends.
