After a fire in 2010 the place was rebuilt to look like the original. It certainly looks and feels authentic. Had coffee and a few beers after a wonderful trip to the markets. Coffee was strong and the beer cold (!). Well worth a visit. Close to the post office.

We had a lovely family gathering at The George to celebrate our parents 54th anniversary. The meal was wonderful, interesting and tempting menu with some good old favourites alongside some new and out of the ordinary dishes., Well cooked using a wide range of local ingredients - not your run of the mill pub grub by any means!

Lovely place, very comfy rooms, lots of nice areas around the hotel to sit and relax, and great food. Highly recommended. The local violin club was in, and they sounded good too! Hatherleigh is a very interesting old village, worth a visit in its own right.

I stay at this hotel on a regular basis for work and every tin it's excellent. The food is excellent and the wide choice of beers with something for everyone's taste. The people are friendly and the rooms perfect, I would definitely recommend giving the George a go.

Three of us had dinner in the restaurant on a Saturday evening. It was an excellent meal, reasonably priced and the standard of service was first class. The George has great character and a warm and welcoming ambience. Well worth a visit.
