4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

Last minute decision to go out for lunch today (20/1/14). We have driven past many times and said 'we must go there sometime'. Well today was the day and i have to say we were not dissappointed. Staff friendly, food was good and value for money. Will visit again.

Called here as passing and was impressed with the decor, but was a little cold! Staff were very helpful and food was good value for money and 'fish & chips' were large! Will try again sometime, falls In between average and very good I.e. GOOD!!

Popped in for lunch - but wouldn't bother again!
Our lunches were pretty awful - just 4 mushrooms for a starter! And the salad starter was just a few few leaves with miniscule cheese and bacon scrapings.
Main courses - scampi - about 8 or 9 tiny bits of cut up prawns in batter!
Chicken? Mostly dried up batter!
Didn't bother with a dessert.
Nothing tasted of anything much.
Toilets had a strange smell and broken soap dispenser.
Oh dear - and so near the sea where you can get lovely fresh fish dishes in other establishments.
The only redeeming feature was Lisa our attentive waitress!

Popped into the St George and Dragon for a quick snack on the way down to Hope Cove with the wife and my Guide Dog. Staff very friendly (especially the lovely lady who served us) and bought a drink out for my hound before I even asked for one. Food was excellent and the beer was very passable indeed. One point knocked off for the sweary man behind the bar (manager?) using "ripe" language about a member of staff and her rota. Very unprofessional.

We stayed at Clyst St George Inn for one night as a stop off between Western & central England. It was just meant to be a convenient resting place right off the motorway, but it was so much more than that. The room was clean and comfortable - nothing spectacular but pleasant to stay in. The real treat here was the restaurant: one of the best we found during our 10 day holiday in the UK. The atmosphere was great, the food was wonderful and the service was friendly and attentive. If you are in Exeter you should stop in - you won't be disappointed!

On her 85th birthday weekend, my sister and I took our Mum back to this hotel, where she and our Dad had spent their honeymoon 63 years ago.

The attention my Mum was given when she explained her story to the Manager was lovely. He listened and commented attentively and found a framed photo of the hotel during the era. Throughout out visit, he was courteous and engaged with us, asking about our trips during the day and thoroughly pleasant. This attitude was echoed throughout the staff from the waiter, Graham, who wrote a personal happy birthday note to Mum, to the welcoming attitude of the staff, particularly the kitchen manager. In fact everyone I met was a credit to the organisation.

As regards the room, it was small, dark and hot, but it was clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom adequate.

The menu in the restaurant is varied - we ate one lunch and two evening meals. I would like to see more variety of light food/snacks on the menu. Contintental breakfast was fine, with a good array and nice coffee.

The weather was fantastic and the area lovely - so we had a very good experience.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back as the hotel fronts onto a fairly busy intersection - we couldn't...
