Innkeeper's Lodge Exeter, Clyst St George

Traveller (40)
Room & Suite (18)
Dining (12)


Just a few miles from Exeter, this unique 19th century lodge offers characterful yet convenient budget accommodation in the heart of Devon.Originally a brewhouse, skittle alley and stables, The St George and Dragon now provides a handy base for exploring Dartmoor National Park or the unspoilt beaches of two coastlines. As well as 21 recently refurbished bedrooms, it's home to a cosy, traditional pub - so if you love the food, drink and atmosphere of a classic country inn, you're in exactly the right place.Nestled in the pretty village of Clyst St George near Topsham, the lodge is surrounded by farms and historic buildings, including medieval Powderham Castle. Nature fans will love the acres of ancient moorland and the National's Trust's huge Killerton House Estate, which are both just a short distance away. Exeter itself is also well worth a visit, with its magnificent Gothic Cathedral, mysterious medieval underground passages and bustling quayside area full of shops and bars.

We have been driving past The George Inn for easily the last 20 years and for some reason have never been in. Anyway, after a rubbish trip out with my mother to the motorhome and caravan show in Exeter we decided to eat here. When we arrived the car park was packed. I said

We have stayed here several times, most recently last weekend. The welcome is always warm and friendly. The room was a little dated, but comfortable and clean. Breakfast choice is more than adequate and the pub does good food during the day. The pub is only a mile from Topsham

"Room 20 was excellent, on the ground floor and we could see our car."
"Rooms at the back are likely to be quieter due to busy road at the front (but that didn't bother us!)"
"Rooms facing the play area are quieter."
"Ask for a quiet room as the road is rather busy."
"If you want a quieter room ask for one towards back. Rooms at front difficult stairs if you have mobility issues."
