Popped in here yesterday for a quick bite but ended up having a 3 course meal (deal they do for £12 on a select menu). It was all delicious, we ate every bite. Great flavours used in the chorizo starter and the burger/pizza we had was very good. The service was excellent, really nice staff. It was a bit of... More

It was thoroughly enjoyed but all of us! There is a gorgeous garden out the back for alfresco dining and drinking. Popped in for a drink last week with friends and order... More

Visited the Gin Bar. Enthusiastic staff member making a wide range (about 16) different Gin cocktails. Tried two which were delicious. Choice of single or double measures in long drinks which were very well mixed. Open kitchen serving traditional pub food. Nice ambient atmosphere

Went for a Saturday meal in the new refurbed Royal George. Love what they've done and the food was fab. The pizza we had was amazing, but to be fair, so was everything else. Good range of drinks, nice atmosphere, great food. Job done!

We had been to 3 pubs in Thornbury who were all unable to accommodate a party of 8 and 1 dog on a Sunday at 1pm. The royal George welcomed us with open arms, seated us in the function room in the loft which was great for us with 4 kids and a dog. The staff were really helpful and... More

Having recently moved to the area, we are still trying the local establishments. The royal George was no disappointment. A well decorated, relaxed pub/restaurant with excellent service, a fantastic range of beer and a good menu catering to most people's taste. The food is of high standards and of good portion sizes, with very little to moan about. Very well... More

The Royal George is gem of a pub right in the heart of Thornbury. We are the perfect place for a relaxing drink, a quick lunch or even a private party or meeting in one of our two fantastic function rooms. We have free Wi-Fi too so you can keep in touch. We've smartened up our act and carefully selected some great new drinks, so whether you love a perfectly served pint of cask ale, a glass of chilled Pinot Grigio or an ice-cold G & T we are sure you will find something you love.
