I thought this was an excellent conversion of an old church retaining the high ceilinged hall with the bar on the left. There is a gallery seating area but it looked very narrow from down below. There is a small room at the rear which was the busiest area plus a nice looking patio outside to the right. It was nowhere near as busy as the Chevalier up the road but it is away from the shops.
The bar has ten hand pumps which had just one duplicate and no available soon or spurious ciders. Beers available were the JDW Trio Of Doom with Doom Bore doubled, Exmoor Stag & Exiles Wicked Wolf, Teignworthy Climate Change, Exe Valley Winter Glow, Otter Head and Bays Devon Dumpling. I tried the Climate Change (£2.29), the Winter Glow (£2.29) and Otter Head (£2.95) all of which were excellent. I thought this was a very good JDW and well worthy of its place in the 2018 GBG.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about George's Meeting House (JD Wetherspoon)

Imposing conversion of the eponymous former Unitarian building, the bar is housed in the double-height hall with a plain (but impressive) gallery and pulpit on a dais at the far end. Beyond this, you can find a further room with additional seating and a patio area off to one side. Reasonable selection of real ales from eight of ten handpumps, including four local ales (such as Devon Amber from Quercus, £2.45).

A classic Spoons conversion, this one is an old (1760) church (Methodist?). Downstairs is a large open (read ‘atmosphere-less) cavern with regimented seating. There’s a lectern at the far end, as well as two impressive stained glass windows. A cosier, smaller room lies beyond. Gallery seating upstairs (unconnected, with separate stairs either side). Large watermarks on the ceiling indicated that a leaky roof needed sorting. Decent beer patio to the rear, though little-to-no shelter for smokers (oddly the area with an unfurled jumbrella had a no smoking notice). Excellent ale selection, with a good number of local choices. My Country Life Golden Pig was a little under-par, though in fairness it may have been heading towards barrel end. Very quiet, in contrast with the White Hart over the road. The few punters that were in were possibly the poshest clientèle in any JDW, I felt the skankiest person in there. Worth popping in for a quick pint and a nose but many nearby outlets offer a more atmospheric pub feel.
