The George Inn, Blackawton

Reviewed 24 September 2012

We really enjoyed staying at this pub - and yes it is just a pub, but it is also warm, and welcoming, spotlessly clean, and has good food (great fish), and outstanding beer. The views are great and it is beautifully quiet. Coupled with very comfortable bed and a new ensuite bathroom this is a highly recommended place and one to where we would be pleased to return.

Boooked for 2 night stay via Internet and was shocked on arrival. The room was clean but shabby and extremely poorly decorated for a 3 star inn. The carpet was badly stained and peeling wallpaper. This was in complete contrast to en suite which was newly fitted. There were some nice touches in that the tea/coffee facilities were well presented. Ate in the pub for evening meal and service was poor food very mediocre. A very extensive menu which suggests "ready meals" from freezer. If you are in the area look elsewhere.

Thank you for reviewing your experience with us. We appreciate your feedback and have taken on board your comments. Sorry for the delay in making this response, we've only just worked out how to respond.
As you noticed, the en-suite shower room has been newly fitted, we are working towards improvements throughout the building, which comes at a cost, which we slowly have to earn. However, we are pleased you found the cleanliness of your room up to standard.
We are disappointed that you felt the service was poor, we cannot and will not try to make excuses for this, but we will work on training for continually improving our customers experiences.
Sorry to read about your presumption of an extensive menu suggesting 'ready meals'. In some cases recipes have to be prepared in advance, it would be impractical to provide certain 'home cooked meals' from scratch when needed/ordered. It is, therefore, a necessity to cook & freeze certain items on our menu to ensure freshness, timely service & reduce waste.
We hope that perhaps in a few months time, after improvements have been made you could return and we could create a new perception of our business.

We arrived at this quaint old pub, very rustic downstairs and were given a brilliant welcome.
The upstairs was totally different to downstairs and our room was refurbished, new shower room/WC lovely decor, spotlessly clean with TV and tea making facilities. The breakfast and dinners were superb. We wouldn't hesitate to go again when we are in that area. Close enough to Dartmouth in lovely countryside.
