Friendly staff, very comfortable room with super bathroom, generous supply of coffee, tea etc.. Breakfast was excellent. We didn't eat in the evening but the menu looked very good. Only ten minutes drive to Dartmouth--would be happy to return.

We stayed here overnight to visit friends and spend time in Dartmouth. it was conveniently located for both and we did not have particularly high expectations for The George but we were very pleasantly surprised. Six of us ate there that evening and we all enjoyed it so much that our friends returned on their own the next day. The... More

We stayed for one night last weekend- myself, my husband and our 6 month old baby. I was attending an event nearby and Ruth and team were very helpful in making this possible, serving food and drinks to my husband in the room while he babysat - and even coming to collect me from my party at nearly midnight!

Myself and a friend stayed here in early June. We were made very welcome (despite our late arrival!). The food was exceptionally good, home fare. The room was clean and the bathroom very modern with a very good shower. I was taken ill on the Saturday night and was unable to drive home in the morning. They very kindly let... More

A very BIG THANK YOU to Ruth, Merry, Sue and Matt...nothing was too much trouble for any of them. Good food, a comfortable bedroom together with a price that didn't break the bank.

We visited in June 2013. We found that this to be very much a locals pub, where local customers take priority when it comes to customer service. Although the pub does specify that they don't do fast food, just good food, which is freshly cooked to order, we felt that keeping a family of 5 waiting for an hour for... More

We chanced upon The George Inn and were pleased to have done so. We were welcomed warmly and the cosy ambiance was immediately appealing. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast there. The food was tasty and well prepared. Our instruction in The Worm Charming competition was a particular highlight. Thank you Ruth et al.

We'd been staying in the area as a getaway holiday and saw a recommendation in the cottage that we should eat in "The George Inn, in Blackawton". As it was not too far away, we tried it. Bitterly cold outside, we went in to a pleasantly warm old-school pub with a good atmosphere, clean and well-presented. The beer was excellent,... More

We first found this hidden gem in 2011. Went for Sunday lunch whilst visiting the area - the welcome, service and friendliness of the team was exemplary and having been in the hospitality industry for over 12 years I could not have wished for more. Our meals were properly home cooked - no sound of pinging microwaves !! The real... More
