Once a noteworthy roadhouse built in the 19th century, The St George & Dragon, Exeter boasts well-loved British pub food in an idyllic location, both in the countryside and near the sea. Prizing its sense of homeliness, there is an Innkeeper’s Lodge, a warming hearth for winter and a pretty garden for al fresco dining.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The St George & Dragon menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The St George & Dragon ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The St George & Dragon is just 15 minutes’ walk from Topsham Train Station, or an 11-minute drive into Exeter.

    Food was very good and service very friendly

    Only problem with the food was they had run out of fish cakes.

  • (**** 15 November 2017 by Joanne Prankerd from Wellington

    Although our orders were taken promptly the meals were served out of sequence resulting in one of our party eating before the rest. This was followed by a a burger resembling a piece of charred shoe leather which was eventually replaced after the rest of us had finished. The whole experience succeeded in ruining my mother’s birthday lunch.

    good service, although the food wasn't hot.

    Six of us, including 2 children had Sunday evening roast. Overall it was very good, except the beef was rather sinewy and I had 2 very tiny slices of pork with no crackling or apple sauce. We were offered cauliflower chees e and were brought a tiny dish. On the whole the food was good and the service excellent.

    Great atmosphere at this pub, we like all the different areas, with a mix of tables and chairs not all being the same.
    Good food, at good prices, the lamb shank delicious.

    I booked for my birthday meal with 6 others, it was my first time at your restaurant and it will not be the last. The service was excellent the drinks was reasonably priced and the food was presented well and was beautifully cooked over all a very pleasant experience.

    Dined on Sunday, roast was very good and the vegetarian pie was delicious. Good value for money.

  • (((** 1 May 2017 by Sue Avery from Exeter

    Disappointed that the restaurant had run out of Sunday Roasts by 16:30...& on a Bank Holiday weekend!
    Our tables was tucked around the corner & we felt a little forgotten.
    However, when the staff did attend to us they were very friendly & cheerful.
