Absolutely awful... Avoid at all cost. We love woolacombe and surrounding areas and come here all the time, looked online at this place and thought the menu was reasonably priced, turned up.. Windows were boarded up in areas and it looked awful but due to covid and having to book places etcs decided to go in. Inside it initially looked OK.... Then whilst sat at table noticed damp in restaurant coming through walls and that it needed work. It wasn't that busy one other couple in the restaurant area. Got served a drink quickly and given menus.... After 45 mins we had to go and get someone to take our order.... Pretty simple 3 steaks, a kids burger and a Mexican baja. Something most restaurants would be able to manage in a timely manner. Over a hour we waited then had to ask when food was arriving to be told 2 mins... 15 mins later no food. The couple next to us had a 3 course meal in the time we were there.... The food then came out, initially it looked good but the burger was burnt.... The steak couldn't even be chewed it was AWFUL. couldn't eat it. If it didn't take so long we could of resolved and reordered something or got it remade but after waiting so long for the first lot and 2 young tired hungry kids we had to call it a night. TOTALLY RUBBISH.... the chef came out to ARGUE that we were wrong and customer service was so disgusting. Never been to such a rubbish place. Could completely understand why windows were smashed. I was told under the current climate of covid I should be more understanding.... Hmmmm last time I checked most people have been financially impacted due to covid so if people try to give you business and spend money at your place then you should try and retain customers and ensure repeat business. Not throw away money and food. There are so many beautiful places to eat in area (that serve edible food) don't risk if here..... 2 mins up the road is the williams arm... Gets booked up so make sure you reserve or the fish restaurant a few doors down. These are run by professional not a rubbish chef that can't cook and comes out the kitchen to argue as he can't take critism. He wouldn't even attempt to cut the steak in front of us like we asked as you couldn't get the knife through it.

For those reading this review. I will point out a few things. This table of 6 rang up and asked can we have a table in 10/15 minutes. They were told that we could sit them for drinks but there would be a long wait for food, as we had a number of tables we were already preparing food for and others waiting to order that had booked in advance. Also note we received no complaints from these tables. There was a wait to order as we had stated, despite our poor staff being hounded to take their order, before others who had already been sat waiting. This is not helpful or polite. What isn't stated is that they ordered one of their steaks Medium Well, given the cut of meat and the thickness of the steak this took around 11 minutes on our chargrill, and was then rested for a further 5 minutes before serving. Please note we have timings on our order system and the food was served to the table, 28 minutes after the point of ordering. As our team were serving your meals they then stood up to complain about the wait, not one of them attempted to eat any of the food. They were informed that the Manager was cooking their meals this evening and he will come out and speak to them as soon as possible. After finishing off another table of 2, I came out approximately 3 minutes later, with the rude customers trying to walk out without even paying for their drinks. I did not argue with the customers, I stated to them if they did not wish to stay and eat the food I will not charge them for it, but there was nothing wrong with it. I did tell them I would not allow them to walk out without paying for all the drinks they had consumed, this is what upset them. I took the liberty of asking one of my waitresses to photograph the food so that you can judge for yourself. I will also note that the staff very much enjoyed the steaks and the burger after what was a busy evening. You could not have eaten at the Williams Arms, as it was closed due to COVID, as were 5 other establishments in the area. This is why we were quite clear with all customers that although we would try to cater for as many as possible there will be waits. Another table of four left as we told them there would be a 40 minute wait. This table were given clear wait expectations so I really don't know what there is to complain about. Needless to say these people are not welcome in this establishment as they spoil it for others.

Stayed her for two days in June 2021. The hosts are such lovely people, and the breakfast was fantastic, great choice and cooked to order. The rooms could do with some updating and the owners advised that they are constantly working on upgrading the building. We also had the added bonus of free parking in a public car part just across the road.

While on holiday at Croyde Bay we visited the George Inn for a birthday celebration meal with the family. You couldn't find a more friendly welcome from husband and wife team who couldn't be more attentive. Food was good and service excellent. We returned later in week for another meal and weren't disappointed. I have many food intolerances which makes my choice very limited and on the second visit because of their kindness I asked for something that wasn't on the menu and it wasn't any trouble and my meal came with any fuss and I can't say How grateful I was. Food and service well worth a visit.

Ate here for dinner, very friendly staff. Food was plentiful and reasonable priced. Had a chicken dish and fish pie. Also a huge sticky toffee pudding with extra custard! Tia Maria coffee was also fab! Would recommend. Choice to eat in the bar or restaurant area.

Hello Julie, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. Really pleased you enjoyed your meal and were well looked after by the team. The sticky toffee pudding is always a personal favourite of mine, it is amazing and I am not just saying it because it is my Wife's recipe or that I cooked this one! If we do have the pleasure of welcoming you back again our home-made chocolate fondants are also definitely worth a try. Thank you so much for recommending us. Kind Regards Christopher
