Went for a Saturday meal in the new refurbed Royal George. Love what they've done and the food was fab. The pizza we had was amazing, but to be fair, so was everything else. Good range of drinks, nice atmosphere, great food. Job done!

We had been to 3 pubs in Thornbury who were all unable to accommodate a party of 8 and 1 dog on a Sunday at 1pm. The royal George welcomed us with open arms, seated us in the function room in the loft which was great for us with 4 kids and a dog. The staff were really helpful and... More

Having recently moved to the area, we are still trying the local establishments. The royal George was no disappointment. A well decorated, relaxed pub/restaurant with excellent service, a fantastic range of beer and a good menu catering to most people's taste. The food is of high standards and of good portion sizes, with very little to moan about. Very well... More

First visit under new management on a busy Saturday night. Excellent customer service. I chose a pizza and my partner had the steak which were outstanding - only thing was the skinny fries were not good, tasted as if they were cooked in old oil. Good addition to the Thornbury restaurant market!

Great to know the Royal George serves food all day, we stopped by for a very late afternoon lunch - 4pm - and had fantastic service even when the bar area was busy when others arrived, we weren't forgotten. Chorizo tapas still very tasty, the scampi came with way more crunchy chips than I could manage but they're good, and... More

Portions were large and food was cooked to a great standard. Couldn't have be more pleased with the service received, the staff were friendly welcoming and attentive at all times. Best service I...

We went as a group for a pre-Christmas meal which we had to pre-select so that their kitchen could cope. The food was nice and well cooked but rather plain with no flair or wow-factor. It is owned by the Bermondsey Pub Group under their Wig & Pen group of pubs. Their selection of twelve beers and ciders on tap... More

We've smartened up our act and carefully selected some great new drinks, so whether you love a perfectly served pint of cask ale, a glass of chilled Pinot Grigio or an ice-cold G & T we are sure you will find something you love.
