Formerly a 17th century coaching house on the old Plymouth to Exeter road, The George Inn is a building with plenty of character. Today it stands as a popular traditional neighbourhood pub in Plympton St. Maurice. Just a 10 minute drive from Dartmoor National Park, it is also a perfect stop off for visitors in surrounding areas.
Landlords, Emma and Jason took over The George in November 2014. Having lived in Plymouth for 25 years, they are locals themselves. The George is their second business alongside their events company, Hire Class. With this and their previous experience as ex-military chefs, they have a great understanding of the catering business.
Emma and Jason’s aim for The George is to retain its traditional aspects whilst bringing it in to the 21st Century. One of the most noticable changes is the newly redecorated dining and bar area and the new menu. Future plans are in place too, such as the renovation of the upstairs function room and improvements to the outside decking area.
The George offers a fresh, local and seasonal menu alongside a weekly specials board. You’ll find pub favourites from a gourmet burger to a haddock fillet – or visit on a Sunday for a roast dinner.
For something lighter, there are a range of paninis, ciabattas and appetizers – the mezze board is a popular choice! A kids menu is available too, so you’ll find something suitable for everyone.
Dine in the rustic-style restaurant complete with wood furnishings and a fireplace or bask in the sunshine on the decked terrace!
The well-kept bar area welcomes all – including dogs! You’ll find real ales such as Tribute and Proper Job, a selection of beers and ciders on draught and plenty of spirits and soft drinks.
Many special events are celebrated at The George such as St. George’s Day, Burns Night and live music on all bank holidays.
For your own special occasions, the upstairs function room is also available for hire, contact The George for more details.
