We go to the George and dragon, ilfracombe, mainly for their fortnightly singalong accompanied by local folk with their instruments. You can come along to listen, sing, sing and play, sing alone.......

Visited in Feb '17. Empty which is no problem but bar staff obviously bored. I didn't think it was possible to badly serve San Migel but I was proved wrong. Flat with a tang to it. Probably OK in the busy season.

Muy 20th year in Ilfarcombe and this is still the best pub. A whole pile of us were in there over the few days and we made noise, sang and made fun. The staff and locals joined and and we all had a great time. What a fantastic pub.

We are holidaying in the town and with it being out of season and so many places closed for winter or refurbishment, we were wandering down the road, spotted the 'quiz night Tuesday' sign and were straight inside! We were given a warm welcome and ordered drinks. Sat down for the quiz and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The landlord... More
