Traditional village inn, rated 3* by VisitBritain, at the heart of Blackawton, a real "pub", and restaurant with clean & comfortable guest rooms offering real value & choice, a genuine warm welcome and excellent customer service.
This is a family friendly, dog friendly traditional village inn, serving good food, real cask ales, West Country ciders and a range of wines and soft drinks, in the centre of a working Devon village. The George Inn, Blackawton is well known in the area as a very pleasant, traditional village local with a warm welcome and is popular with locals and visitors alike. The main bar is partly timbered and the end lounge has a bay window with fine views across open countryside towards the sea.
There is also a patio behind the pub, and beyond that a pleasant, quiet garden, divided into a lawned area with children's swings and a gravelled area with tables and seating, with views across open countryside toward the south-west. This garden area, and our 3 star rated, first floor guest bedrooms, are our ONLY dog free zones. During 2010 The George Inn, Blackawton achieved a "Bronze" award after an environmental audit by the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
Checkout our entry in the 2010 Good Beer Guide. Blackawton is buried in a maze of lanes about 4 miles north of Slapton. A lovely village with a real community spirit, an excellent primary school, a little shop cum Post Office and church, it is a previous winner of the CPRE's Best Kept Village competition.
We look forward to welcoming you to The George Inn, Blackawton soon!
