We did feel that the fish and chips we had tasted a bit over done which was a shame.

From the moment we entered this pub we had a wonderful experience at The Royal George. We thought we were just going to a pub for a meal & was surprised by how nice the interior looked when we walked in & being greeted at the door & shown to our table by the warm & welcoming (& funny) maitre d' put us right at ease from the start & we were even introduced to our waiter Ollie. Both of them were also very knowledgeable on the beers & gins available & as of the menu wow we were spoilt for choice but absolutely loved our choices of venison & the 3 cuts of lamb in a pie. My pana cotta was also heaven in a dish. Absolutely wonderful dining experience during our short time in Appledore but if we ever get the chance to come back we will most certainly head for The Royal George.

Sunday lunch was really very good lovely pink beef my husband ask for his lamb to be well don and that’s exactly how it came. The only thing I would say maybe a couple more roast potatoes as only got 3 small and we would have liked more. Service was friendly and efficient. We didn’t have the nicest table ground floor table 5 In the walk though area so not great.

Visited with my husband and adult son for Sunday lunch. We all opted for a roast (2 of us had pork, 1 had beef). All 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed the food - the meat was tender and flavoursome, the veg tasty and cooked to perfection. All very nicely presented too. The puddings were also delicious, and my husband particularly recommends the banana and rum rice pudding. Staff were friendly, and the COVID measures in place were good. Would definitely visit again when we next get a chance to visit Appledore.

You made our elopement reception real. The room booked for us and the invites was so beautiful and cosy, with lots of details about our day and very nice lighting. Staff was very kind and polite, and both the place and staff was covid secure and very clean, everybody coming to serve food and drinks was wearing masks and keeping and appropriate distance. Our puppy seemed very happy as well with her food!! My husband, myself and all invites agreed how delicious and professionally made was the food, from the canapes to the desserts, the owner helped us a lot for a few weeks to design our menu based on the preferences, and a delicious vegan cake was also made for us. We will return to this place if we return to Devon, no doubt about it. I can only say thanks for everything, I cannot imagine a better reception dinner because it is impossible!

I’m sure atmosphere would normally be 5 but due to covid and there being 7 in our family we had to sit at separate tables. Food was amazing and service excellent. The celestial soup was fantastic

Really enjoyable meal as a family, delicious food, we ordered a lot of seafood which was spot on although fairly pricey. Great atmosphere too considering the current times. We’ll be back for sure!

Outstanding food and drink at the Royal George. Attentive service with excellent wine paring, especially when it comes to wine/port to enjoy with pudding. The cheeseboard is something else. Highly recommend!
