My husband and I stayed here by default when the online booking failed for a nearby English village pub. The George & Dragon turned out to be better we both thought. Set in a delightful village, quietly hidden away between two highways heading into Chester the G & D of Tarven was a haven. Well-appointed & clean, with wi-fi and... More

We were attending a family party in Tarvin and booked into the pub for an overnight stay and breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable clean and well equipped. Towels were soft and fluffy and the bedding too was very soft cotton sheets pillowcases and duvet cover. The pub was open and lively until about 12.30/1.00am... More

Visited this pub on numerous occasions over the last few years as the food has always been excellent value for money. Unfortunately it seems to have gone the way of so many others, trying to put a modern twist on things, serving food on bits of wood and odd plates. It takes a certain standard of establishment to be able... More

We used to live in Tarvin and would often pop in for a Sunday roast which was always fantastic. On this occasion 3rd may 2015 we both ordered a chicken roast dinner. £9.50 each. To say we were disappointed is an understatement. I'm not sure if they plated up a ready meal and served some bisto. Everything was cooked ok... More

We stayed here for a wedding nearby initially because of the fantastic price and it's location. However, we were not prepared for the warm welcome, the very cute individual boutique type rooms or the amazing breakfast and service. The room was quite small but was ensuite with a very powerful and hot shower. Extremely clean and comfortable. Breakfast was served... More

We went to Carfest for the weekend and stayed here, Staff were so friendly and when we needed anything they were more than happy to help. Rooms were spotless, beds were comfy, facilities were great (T.V, WiFi, Tea + Biscuits :) ) Overall the place was great!!
