The George Pub, once a Devon county favourite, has reopened after being closed for more than two years. This follows extensive renovations, after The George had been allowed to fall into disrepair while closed and between owners. Historically an 18th century coaching inn, the loss of The George was seen as a disappointment to many in the history-conscious Devon community. Many from the surrounding towns of Tiverton, Cullompton, and Wellington felt the blow as keenly as did the residents of Uffculme, who had lost a centuries-old gathering spot and local landmark.
Thanks to new owners Robin Braithwaite and Kasia Godebska, that landmark has once more been made available, following some much-needed modern upgrades and the transformation of the kitchen into one befitting a quality gastropub.
Savory Pub Fare From Locally Grown Ingredients
Since reopening The George has quickly become known locally as an excellent gastropub, offering pub food using locally grown ingredients. This is a practice that the owners and Chef have focused on, with the added freshness and comfort of the premises contributing to what they hope will become widely recognized as some of the best pub food in Devon.
“We take great pride in the quality of our food,” Braithwaite explains. “With the abundance of fantastic local ingredients and a Chef who understands how best to use the seasonal produce, we’re showcasing the tastes of Devon. We also feel that having the George up and running again restores a small but much loved piece of the Devon county to the community.”
In addition to offering what they hope will become the most popular pub food in Devon, the new owners point to The George’s impressive beverage selection. “We’re offering locally brewed beers and real ales, along with a wide selection of popular wines and spirits.”
The new owners have prepared a video displaying The George’s welcoming atmosphere, as well as showing off the quality of the pub food.
