Good Food

The George Inn has an enviable reputation for good pub food.  We hope you’ll come to love it! Here’s our Christmas menu 2021.  

Home-made, fresh, good pub food

Our food is a mix of classic and contemporary British cooking. 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, sourcing from local suppliers and using local ingredients wherever possible. We include produce from our own garden as well and use foraged ingredients such as wild mushrooms, blackberrys, wild garlic and sloes.

The majority of our meat is produced within a 25 mile radius. Our game is locally shot, we hang our pheasants and partridges in the woodshed before preparing them and pick local mushrooms to add rich flavour to our dishes. We 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 & ale, chicken & mushroom and pork & apple pie to name a few.

Our fresh Cornish seafood is popular as well. This includes Tor Bay mussels, Cornish scallops, and hake, turbot, plaice, and sole. Our children’s menu fills the needs even the fussiest eaters, and we cater for vegetarians, vegans, celiacs and most food preferences. We are knowledgeable about food allergies and do not use any MSG, artificial colours, or sweeteners. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions or special needs.

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 delightful beer garden. As well as the terrace we have a swing for the children, a lovely flower border and tables and chairs to seat 30 with ease. With so much to offer the only problem is parking nearby!

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