Good Food

Good Food

The George Inn has an enviable reputation for good pub food because we have a great team of accomplished and enthusiastic chefs who enjoy experimenting and working with as much fresh and local produce as possible! 

Home-made, fresh, good pub food

Our food is a mix of classic and contemporary British cooking, served without pretence or complication. See our sample main menu here and our sample Sunday menu here. Menus will vary somewhat on the day, so please telephone if you have particular needs or requests.

We make almost everything ourselves, from local ingredients wherever possible. We believe it is important to know from where and how our food is produced. We try to source everything locally from small-scale producers if we can, and we even include produce from our own garden as well.

The majority of our meat is produced within a 25 mile radius, including beef from a farm just two miles away. Our game is locally shot or caught too. We hang our pheasants and partridges in the woodshed before preparing them and pick local mushrooms to add some superb flavours to our dishes.

We like to grow our own herbs and forage for ingredients such as wild garlic, nettles, elderflowers, ceps and mushrooms, sloes, blackberries and rowans. We cut our own wood for the fires too! All these things combine to make good pub food something you can count on at The George Inn.

Our menu

Our menu caters for almost everyone. See our sample main menu here.  
Our best selling traditional favourites are the classics of good pub food. Our short crust pies are renowned — steak and ale pie, chicken, sage and mushroom pie, beef and Guinness and horseradish pie, and pork, cider and apple pie to name a few.

Our fresh Brixham seafood is popular too. This includes Tor Bay mussels, Cornish scallops, and local hake, turbot, plaice, and sole. We have frequently changing specials which usually include two meats, two fish or seafood and a vegetarian special.

We have a children’s menu, a good selection of vegetarian food, and local beef and lamb (sometimes from animals raised right in the village!). We are knowledgeable about food allergies and do not use any MSG, artificial colours, or sweeteners. We can cater for most all dietary needs as we make nearly everything ourselves, so please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions or special needs.

Sunday lunch

Roast Beef on Sunday is just one way to enjoy good pub food near Wells
Sunday Roast

Sunday Lunch is a real treat at the George too. We serve local corner-cut topside of beef, local leg of lamb, honey roast pork, chicken, a vegetarian nut roast and fresh fish.  See our Sunday Roast menu here.

Yorkshire puddings and all the trimmings accompany, and it’s rare for anyone to leave the table hungry!

Eat good pub food in the bar, restaurant or garden!

A great place to eat good pub food with friends!
The Bar at the George Inn

There are plenty of choices for where to eat in the pub.

We have a snug area with seating for 10, our restaurant with seating for up to 30, the old tack room that seats 20 and the main bar which seats another 30. The bar includes a lovely open fire which makes it especially attractive in the winter.

In the summer, don’t forget our lovely beer garden. We’ve covered the terrace with a retractable awning, have a swing for the children, a lovely flower border and tables and chairs in the garden seat another 30 with ease. With so much to offer the only problem is parking nearby!

Advance bookings are appreciated whenever possible. Call us at 01749 342306. We look forward to seeing you soon.
