We went in to dodge the rain and were attracted by the dog friendly sign. We ordered teas and coffee which were good quality and were then tempted by the food. My panini and salad was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. My son had steak pie which was also good. The

We stopped for lunch. 2 adults, 4 kids. Menu was ok. We all ordered a meal each (some took advantage of the '2courses for £9.95' deal) Food took ages (up to hour) and was definitely not worth the wait. Lasagne was a half portion at best and burnt. Fries were undercooked. Tuna

Dear Rachel, I am really disappointed at reading your review as when we checked back on your starters you gave us great feedback on the food, in particular the nachos. A couple of you were not having starters, and whilst we checked back you requested to have your mains whilst the others finished their starters. Although the restaurant was full we were happy to accommodate this, as quickly as we could. Once we served these we cleared your starters. It was only at this point you suddenly complained that your parking was running out, as you had parked in a pay and display down the road. We brought your 2 sausage and mash, plus your fish and chips within 10 minutes, at which point you sent them back as you needed to go. We believe that you were served in good time, but as you had not eaten them as a goodwill gesture gave you a full refund of those meals. I wish that you had tried our sausages, as we receive great feedback on these, they are a lovely herbed pork sausage purchased from a local butcher, the mash is most certainly not from a packet, and our fish is freshly beer battered from our own batter using the tribute ale we serve on our bar. We believe our homemade lasagne is a good size and we do not reduce any of the portions on our 2 course offer, we offer the same portions as on our main menu for a discounted price during Monday to Friday lunchtimes only. I appreciate that as some of your party had their mains whilst you were still eating your starter, it might have felt like you had been waiting longer as they had finished their meals when your mains arrived. We would never normally serve a table half of a tables mains before the others, however we did so only at your request, as we always try our upmost to accommodate all of our customers needs.

Excellent value stay . The pub is very welcoming and had attracted quite a young clientele when we checked in. Our room was clean and spacious. It was very chilly but the owner put on the heating for us and it soon warmed up. The 5’ bed is very comfy and we slept well. There

Hello Julia, Thank you for taking time to write us a review. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and found it excellent value for money. It is great to hear that you were well looked after and enjoyed the food, we do have some further improvements planned as well to our existing breakfast buffet Thank you for highlighting the issues of storage, we will look into how this can be improved. The heating is on a timer, as the radiators heat the building very efficiently, we have now adjusted these to come on for longer in the afternoon/early evening. I will pass on your comments to the rest of the team, and hope to see you back here again in the future. Kind Regards Christopher

Utterly disgusting nightmare. Family visit but they do not cater for children. Don’t expect a cot & if you need an extra bed for small child don’t expect it on arrival - when it does arrive you may need to take your own quilt & you will certainly need to take your own quilt

hello Mrs right, i apologise for any upset we may have caused you during your stay with us. The unfortunate key incident was due to other customers swapping rooms and not returning the previous keys to us, you did however get drinks and a bottle of wine on the house for this issue as an apology. The menu side of things, you were checked on several times through out the course of your meal and the staff were met with, yes its brilliant, lovely thank you, and empty plates for the most part. If you had let us know you were unhappy with the choices available or that you were 'disgusted' by the standard we would have corrected it for you immediately. Colouring, paper and activities were lay out on the table for the kids, i am very sorry if the music went to un child friendly taste, it is on a random you tube playlist and we will in future pay more attention to the songs going on. You were given choices of 2 types of cakes, bought especially for your big group as well as any extras from the chefs personal experimental desserts. Again, if we were made aware you were unhappy with this, we would have absolutely gone out of our way to make it right. With all of this in consideration, i hope that the improvements we have made to our checking in and out policies will make for a better stay. Unfortunately the key your party broke in the lock could not have been avoided by our staff as were not present. Id hope that as we managed to resolve the issue as quickly and effectively as we could for you, this will not reflect badly on us as a business. kind regards The george.

The George Inn accommodated us over Christmas while visiting family in Braunton. The rooms were clean and modern. The only day breakfast wasn’t available was Christmas Day but the fact it was on all the other days was great and very good of them. The location is fantastic,
