My husband and I had dinner here one weekend and I was disappointed with the small choice on the menu. All the food was quite fancy so I eventually chose from the bar menu and just had a steak and chips. The food was nice and the service was excellent but just feel the menu was limited. We also felt...

We used The George in Hatherleigh for our wedding party accommodation over the bank holiday weekend in August. We took all 14 rooms in the hotel from Friday to Sunday and the owners were incredibly welcoming and helpful. They provided a big BBQ on the Friday where we had outside space enough for 30 and a big inside area. They...

We keep returning to try and show local support but this place just lacks love and good service. The food was okay. Some of the meats weren't cooked as ordered but overall the food was okay. The service was really lacking on a Sunday. We had to keep chasing to get our orders taken/drinks/bill etc

The George is obviously very old and very historic but more than that it is welcoming friendly and very comfortable. After a ghastly 5 hour journey, punishing rainy weather it was a delight to land up in this wonderful atmosphere. Excellent breakfast cheerfully served by the Manager who is a real hands-on person and deserves the success that this hotel...

We went here for a birthday meal on Friday - our 1st visit. The food was excellent - the best steak we'd had in a very long time. The service was good and the restaurant nicely done out. We will definitely go back

We were recommended the George by the bride of a wedding we went to. Having arrived at 10ish and asked if there was any chance of an early check-in, we were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded and taken to our room. The room was outstanding, clean, full of character and had an amazing bath in there too! The bed was...

We arrived 15 minutes before the end of service on a Saturday night and they kindly managed to fit us in. The food was the best pub food I have in the area and beautifully presented. There was a little delay in our order due to a mistake in the kitchen. However, it was very well dealt with by the...

We stayed at the George for 5 nights; a lovely, quiet place. Our twin room was well furnished and the wet room en-suite was well appointed. The food was much more than "pub grub". The menu was thoughtful, creative and very enjoyable; the beer was well kept and the breakfasts were very well cooked (no yogurt/fresh fruit, though). We were...

I decided, on the spur of the moment, to take a long weekend and, as my partner is disabled, wanted to find a place with proper disabled facilities, rather than just lip service being paid. I chanced upon the George having decided on Devon and the disable-adapted room was available. The hotel is a rebuild of an old coaching inn...

It was such a pleasure to have you both staying with us, and so glad the room fitted your needs. As you know, if your needs change at all then we can also raise the bed by around 10cm which may help further. I do hope you wander down this way again, we would be delighted to see you both....

The George is located in Devon's smallest town, Hatherleigh. The pub is famous for its lively and welcoming atmosphere, and provides great freshly cooked food, drink and effortless service. Soft modern furnishings complement the traditional and historic building features, creating a warm, inviting feel. A pub with pub values offered with style, charisma and personality. Our menu is a mix of great pub classics and modern English dishes, with sharing plates for informal dining and a great range of mains. We take pride in sourcing our produce locally where possible, and are proud of the sensational food we offer.
