About The Royal George

Located on Irsha Street, at the meeting point of the Taw and Torridge rivers, our waterside pub is in the perfect position to take in the superb view across the estuary.

At The Royal George we aim to deliver a locally sourced menu of the highest quality, with innovative dishes and twists on traditional classics. Our talented kitchen team selects the freshest seasonal and local ingredients. Our lovingly put together wine list has been created to compliment the food. We also have a selection of beers, ciders, and gin - many locally made in North Devon and the surrounding area.

Delicious, fresh food and excellent service, as always. We particularly love the fish dishes, but our table of four all enjoyed their choices. No wonder we keep returning!

A wonderful lunch again at the Royal George, service was very good and we did not have to wait long for our meals, very good selection of wine, always love the fact the items of the menu each time reflects what is in season, extremely happy with everything, even the screaming toddler on the next table couldn't spoil our time there!

Great service but having a dairy allergy shouldn’t mean having to just eat vegan options, surely some of the meat dishes could be prepared without butter or cream?

A great meal out - Our table had a lovely view out over the estuary and the twinkling lights of Instow. Service was attentive and helpful without being intrusive. Best of all was the food though - between us we had venison, pheasant, and lamb for main course. All really well cooked and presented with fantastic taste being the number one comment. Puddings were good too - actually worth having in their own right rather than just as part of the ritual of dining out. Can't recommend enough - we will be back again soon.

Great food, great service and no issues with letting my puppy join us which is just brilliant for the family. To hear my 13 year old son say “ohh my god this tastes amazing” for what was a roast potato tells just how good Sunday lunch was👍😃
