“Wasn't for us, sorry :(”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We called for an evening meal during our week's stay in Solva. The bar was quite busy, seemingly mostly locals, and everybody was very friendly. The pub is very basic in style and decor, and there were a couple of dogs wandering around off the lead (one of whom was the pub dog, a friendly brown labrador). There was a leaflet in our holiday apartment advertising takeaway Chinese from the Royal George but there was no Chinese food on the menu which was a bit confusing. I went for the fish of the day - mackeral - when it came it was nicely cooked (albeit only a very small fish - two would have been better) and was served with a large salad and one new potato! The meal was perfectly acceptable and was fairly priced, my other half also thought his meal - sausage and chips - was OK. Although we're both dog-lovers (and, indeed, had our own Border Collie with us, who stayed on her lead and tucked under the table which is what she does every time we take her into a pub), we didn't feel it appropriate for the resident dog - sweet though she was - to sit between us, salivating and staring intently at our food whilst we ate - as soon as we'd finished she bustled off to the next table to subject the diners there to the same treatment! All in all, it was a perfectly adequate meal in a perfectly adequate pub, but there was nothing there that tempted us back for a second visit.

“The bare [--] cheek of it!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

It was just before 7p.m. and I was returning from a day out in the south of the county when I spotted the George and its advert for Chinese food. Sounded unlikely but pulled in anyway. The bar was busy and having squeezed past the many drinkers at the bar I looked around to see if there were vacant tables. The tables were the least of my problems! The floor was awash with beer and 1 table had 2 grappling men lying atop it, the upper one revealing quite a lot of derrière. Enough. If the pub was like this at 7 p.m what on earth would it be like later. I turned tail and headed out smartly!

“Lovely food but a little pricey for what you get”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

Has a great menu and the staff are really friendly. My only gripe would be that it is a bit expensive

“pushed to cope with Sunday trade.”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

It was fine, just fine. Nothing special, so very off putting when you had to wait to order and wait even longer to have the table cleared. And even longer to get the table wiprd!

“Basic pub food and cheap.”
Reviewed August 29, 2010

There are about 10 meals on the menu - mostly with chips, but its all freshly made and service is quick. There is also a childrens menu.
The pub has a great view at the back on the terrace as well.
