I was really happy and surprised to find that my wife and I could get a table without a booking and that it was such high quality. Seated with drinks in our hands and perusing the menu within 5 minutes. Can't say fairer than that. We had a lovely light starter and a pair of beautiful roasts with the most... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us, and to write such a lovely review. Sundays are always unpredicatable, sometimes we have room like yesterday, other days we are really busy, and have to turn people away who haven't booked because we have run out of food. We have recently changed from having a carvery into the... More

I visited yesterday (19/08/16) with my mum, nan and 4 month old son for lunch. They'd both visited before, but separately, at the end of last year and in January. Neither had been especially impressed with the food then. Well, we were all absolutely blown away with the quality, presentation, value, and above all, taste of the food this time!... More

Stopped off in Hatherleigh during our journey home and discovered this lovely pub. Full of character and with a good extensive menu. The whole place (including the toilets) appears to be clean and tastefully decorated. Our meals were excellent and the young man behind the bar was very pleasant, friendly & helpful. We felt lucky to find it and would... More

What a lovely building this is, with it's history on the front wall and such a lovely welcome out the front how could we pass it by without having a look inside. Unfortunately it was too early for lunch but the coffee was good, we will have to return for a meal.

What a delightful evening. Here with friends, we had a sumptuous meal, complemented by wonderful service from the staff. Our friends reconnaissance earlier in the week for a vegetarian choice was more than met by the chefs putting together a veg. menu with a range of options. Several of us were impressed by the deep fried egg yolk with asparagus... More

We stopped by for Sunday lunch recently and were blown away. The staff treated us like family from start to finish and the food was fantastic. The value for money was great and the portion sizes were outstanding. As you can see below the chef and his team are also imaginative as my Tiramisu in a plant pot proves. Normally... More

Stopped at the George overnight as midway point in a cycle extravaganza from Ilfracombe to Plymouth and then stayed another night on the return journey. Sensational accommodation. Really friendly staff. Great food. The rooms were incredibly comfortable and clean. The hosts were really accommodating and we were able to secure our bicycles overnight. We would highly recommend this for cyclists.... More

This hidden gem is a must for food lovers! I have just recently stayed with a group of friends and tasted fine dining at its very best. The creativity and combination of flavours in the tasting menu was perfectly complemented with the wine selected for each course. Under new management this beautiful hotel has been transformed. They have created an... More
