“Lovely family lunch”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

We had a wonderful lunch here 31st August as a birthday celebration, the food was superb and plenty of it,the waiter who had only been there 2 days was so good nothing was to much trouble and with a smile at all times, even when my brother in law teased him for looking like Roger Federer! We came up from Exeter and we most certainly will be coming back.well done Royal George you have got it spot on. Alison Ware.

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

After trying on many occasions to get a table here on a Saturday evening, we managed to this weekend . On arrival we were greeted by two very friendly bar staff, made us fell right at home shown to a lovely separate dining area. Menus were very interesting varying in prices and simplicity, something to suit every ones taste. We all had different meals every thing cooked to perfection all came with a dish of 5 different FRESH vegetables, very generous portions. The meal was easy like a top restaurant rather than a road side pub. We can't wait to go back. Booking a table for a Saturday is a must so as not to be disappointed. The bar/waitress nothing was too much trouble the staff are a credit to this well run establishment

“Business lunch, great stop”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Stopped off for lunch in the royal George. Busy pub considering it was a Tuesday. Menu had good choice, and drinks range strong. I had Balti-and it had a real flavour to it. My colleague went with gammon and said it was a great taste. The food was freshly cooked and was hot when it came out. Price was acceptable too. This pub seems to attract plenty of business and I can see why.

“No need for a False description”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Saw the sign outside 'Fresh Lobster and Dressed Crab' - so we went in. This is a local pub, with local drinkers and all that goes with them. Not an up market restuarant. We had read a previous TA review and guess what - when we asked to see the menu we were given the daily specials menu sheet ( could see as it was slightly tatty that it was say 48+ hours old ) that neither the crab or lobster were on! We enquired and were told 'we sold out at lunchtime' -... sorry we dont believe you!
However, there was Fresh scallops and fresh monkfish and it was exceptional - very very good and perfect presentation - so why pull us in on false pretences - Fresh Scallops and Fish on the board would have worked just as well. Any way, gripe over. This is a chef that knows how to cook and present a plate of food, very much high end masterchef standard and we both would not hesitate to return. Genrally, apart from the above very good, friendly service. will go back
