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.

Service was slow we had been waiting for a while before our order was taken and it wasn’t particularly busy. We all had a roast lunch beef and pork, which was very tasty. What would be so much better is if the vegetables were served individually in side dishes rather than a small portion hidden under the meat.

I was disappointed with being on a table behind a wall despite booking and having to wait for our table. I did ask to move which the staff kindly did but only window space was by a noisy party. I will not be coming again as a couple. Also despite the food being tasty i felt there was not enough vegetables, will go to instow arms next fime.

Service a little slow today but considering how busy you were it was not surprising. As usual excellent food and drink, especially house rose and Apple/sponge pudding.

We love The Royal George - the food is always exceptional the staff have plenty of time to talk you through the menu - food and drinks. The views are gorgeous even when it’s stormy. We choose to go when it’s quiet but I have thoroughly enjoyed their very popular Gin nights. Always pleasantly surprised when the bill comes you certainly wouldn’t get such quality food for these prices in the smoke!

Disappointed. We are local and our son in law had asked us to book up a nice restaurant for our daughters birthday. They had driven down from London, we immediately thought of the Royal George as the ideal location. We arrived well before 8.15 but were not given any menus. Food finally served at nearly 9.30! Waiting staff lacked knowledge of dishes, and didn’t ask the kitchen regarding dietary requirements! Table not cleared between courses! Doors left open with cold howling wind blowing through! We’ve been here lots and recommended to many friends and family. Such a disappointing evening. You could and you have done so much better.

I came with a large group of colleagues, none of whom had been to TRG before. It was a first class experience for us all.
