Staying in Coombe Martin for half term also coincided with my wife's 50th birthday. I was looking for a pub in the town offering something other than Sunday Lunch. Although the George normally only offers this too, Tanya very kindly allowed me to book in advance from the main menu. Tanya and her staff were very attentive and the food... More

Been to both the opera night and west end night out on by the George. Amazing Italian food with as much as you could possibly eat. What made the night so special was the ever so talented Tanya signing that was truly a treat oh my she has an amazing voice

Both the landlord and his wife made us and our children very welcome. The homemade food (beef chilli and chicken in breadcrumbs) was delicious and excellent value for money.The free pool table was a hit with the kids.

We were made very welcome by Steve and Tanya, and in particular Mario the owners son who was very entertaining and our dogs loved him! Nice to hear a child talk so proudly of his mum and her cooking, and he was right she makes a good pie! We even got to hear her sing, very talented mum indeed. We... More

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent steak in the George and Dragon. The hospitality for us and our Boxer, George was second to none. The food was great, as was the ale and wine. Highly recommended for an informal meal or just a drink, in a very friendly atmosphere.

From the resident children peeing on the glass roof of the restaurant while diners were eating to the foul language of the landlord towards his family, a much loved pub has become dreadful

excellent carvery with a good selection of meat and veg option. The meat looked like it could be a little dry on the carvery but it was not. All of the cuts were beautifully cooked and a generous serving was given. The veggies were well cooked and plentiful and the red cabbage was especially delicious. The service was good and... More
