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.

As always, a most enjoyable meal prepared to a high standard. I will continue to use The Royal George; there are few restaurants in North Devon that are as consistent as this one.

Lovely restaurant with delicious food. The staff were friendly and the restaurant felt very covid safe. The only thing I would say is that we have visited several times now and each time the dining experience does feel slightly rushed. It would be lovely if you got slightly longer between courses to enjoy a drink and the atmosphere.

We had a lovely lunch at the Royal George. The atmosphere, service and of course views were all great. The food tasted lovely. My only criticism would be that the vegan main was quite small. Considering it was mostly vegetables (obviously 😉) it was finished very quickly and I still felt hungry afterwards. I wish I’d have ordered some extra sides to go with it. Maybe this should be recommended by the waiting staff, or considering the price, maybe a bigger portion would be preferable?

The Royal George has everything! Not only is it in a spectacular location, it is run by people who love what they do. Whether you pop in for a quick bite or that special occasion it's always going to be memorable. The wonderful cuisine is worth going for alone, but when you add the friendly attentive staff and amazing views across the estuary you just can't help but want to return again and again.

For the third year running, my wife chose to celebrate her birthday here: yet again the food and service was outstanding: she loved the ox cheeks so much, we returned 2 days later for another wonderful meal, looking out over the water, Thanks Simon
