Visited this pub as was staying for week locally as a party of 10 people. It was the nearest to our holiday home and easily walkable so we felt we would be able to patronise it regularly over the course of the week. However, despite wifi being evident on our devices and locals at the bar clearly linked onto the... More

We came here a couple of nights ago from Bales Ash campsite. 20 mins walk - which gave us the opportunity to enjoy a beer or two without taking the camper van! The pub is a 16th century inn - very cosy and we had a warm welcome. A good choice of food. Hubby and I had the homemade lamb... More

Visited here due to recommendations from others. I had sausage, mash, peas and onion gravy - was really nice! My husband had the lasagne, salad and got a side of chips - he enjoyed that too! We both had brownies for desert - they were super nice too! Staff are nice and the locals are friendly. We walked up from... More

We had a fabulous meal here, very reasonable price and excellent service. The locals are very friendly and welcoming which makes this place a must if you are in the area. Some great real ales, a genuine old local pub. Thanks to all at the George.

Is this establishment still trading as the hours for Thursday lunchtime on the door stated 12 to 2.30. The pub was not even open when we arrived at 1pm which was a big disappointment especially as we actually ran this... More

took our grandson for evening meal as he had worked with me all day in the garden. Great food but disappointed as they had run out of steak pies.....my favourite. Still a good time was had by the three of us as well as a party of holidaymakers. Excellent value and better than most so called restaurants. Food cooked to... More

This pub is always busy with locals chatting at the bar. The food is good, large portion sizes & home cooked. Best Lasagne I have found in Devon, full of meat, & not sloppy sauce. Well done, loved it.
