Tuna sandwich dry.thick bread with minimal filling.no garnish.5.20p for two slices of bread and some tuna. Chips came in a plastic bowl which looked as though it came from the era of chicken in the basket. Very few... More

We stayed one Saturday night. Pleasant and good value for money. Very nice & welcoming, esp. the barmaid on Saturday evening. Food was decent pub grub. If you're looking for a pleasant, unpretentious place a little of the beaten track, this is it.

We stayed here for one night for a Friends wedding in Dartmouth. The room fresh, clean and tidy. The bed was very comfy with decent pillows and nice bed linen. We enjoyed a light lunch before the wedding but there was plenty to choose from on their menu. The view from our room was an added bonus. We also enjoyed... More

Stayed two nights, eating in one night in the crowded pub, where many diners come from the Holiday Park up on the main Dartmouth road. Blackawton is down tiny lanes whichever way you approach. Interesting village which was cleared of inhabitants and all farm stock on 14 days notice and handed over to US troops preparatory to D-Day in 1944... More

We arrived in the afternoon. Weather not great. Had a beer and we were shown our room. A nice clean modern room with a comfortable bed, beautiful En-suite and everything you need for a pleasant stay. A real shame the weather wasn't great because the view was beautiful. We decided to eat at the George and were really glad we... More

I chose the George Inn based on its location for my business in the area. Everything about my visit was excellent. The bed was comfortable, the food was tasty and filling, exactly what you want after a day of travelling and visiting customers and the beer was REAL!!!

Refreshing to see a real pub with real people in it. Good ale, good food - you can tell it was fresh as it did not turn up 5 mins after it was ordered, it took a reasonable time to get to us and well worth the wait. Staff friendly and the locals eat here so it can't be that... More

Noticed the reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to go for Sunday lunch the day after we arrived on holiday (staying in Slapton) Well you need your wits about finding the place, country lanes all the way but well worth the effort. Had a nice welcome as we walked in and were shown to our table as we booked earlier in... More

Six of us stopped off for an evening meal. We were greeted by a lovely lady who found us a table in the new darts area as the dining area was full. Locals really friendly and chatty. Food good value for money. Traditional village pub with old fashioned decor.

This has to be they very best Country Inn that we we have ever stayed in. Our visit was as an extended family. We occupied three splendid rooms - myself and husband, our daughter and family including two young boys, and our son with his wife and baby. Each room was entirely suited to our needs. Ours was rather smaller... More
