A friend and I visited this in November 2015 after a drive in the Dales looking for somewhere nice to eat. We had called into a few other places along the way to be met with a slightly unfriendly atmosphere. On entering there was a friendly gentleman behind the bar, a roaring fire and the restaurant was semi empty but... More

On our last evening in aysgarth we decided to go out for a meal and saw the George and the dragon on our way to hawes earlier that day. We were not disappointed, we arrived an hour early for the evening sitting which starts serving at 6pm, however it was nice to sit near the open fire in a quaint... More

My friend and I stayed here for three nights recently as a base to attend a course elsewhere. Staff superbly friendly and helpful and atmosphere perfect ( even has a ghost!). A thoroughly enjoyable stay apart from three niggles, which combined to reduce a star. First the electric showers were poor and subject to the usual problems with varying water... More

We stayed here on 24/25 October for my husband's birthday. From arrival we were delighted with the warm welcome and even more delighted with the comfortable and classically designed room with four poster bed. A touch of luxury one wouldn't expect in rural Wensleydale. The evening meal was superb and the service friendly and swift. Next morning they had fulfilled... More

Upon arrival this place is your quintessential British pub & restaurant. All beams, nooks and crannies and paraphernalia. The selection of beers was good and we were seated at our booked time. First of all I'll say that all the food was served hot and looked delicious. My starter of goats cheese and beetroot tart was nice enough but not... More

Accommodation very good. We had room 3 with four poster and roll top bath. No real complaint just to say wallpaper next to window needs repasting. Loads of room, clean and everything we needed. Meal was excellent and average price. Staff and service also excellent. Would not hesitate to recommend and return.

We have just returned from our first meal at this Inn and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The place had a really good atmosphere, and there was a wide selection of beers, wines and spirits. The service was prompt, the food absolutely delicious (and good value for money) and the waitress was very helpful and friendly. We were told... More

We have just returned from the George and dragon and both agree never again! When we arrived there was a really bad smell like stale smoke. We were seated at our table and as soon as you touched it you stuck to it, you couldn't move the mats they were stuck to the table, totally gross! When my red thai... More

The landlord was very accomadating and made comfortable in the bar while he fetched some menu's. Staff waiting on the tables were very good and not over attentive. Food was well above average. The pub has a nice atmoshpere to it by retaining some of the old country inn while still being modern in other ways. We will certainly return... More

Our first visit to the Yorkshire Dales which are beautiful and this was a great location for it. The breakfasts were excellent; we also had dinner 2 out of 3 nights and they were delicious too. The room was comfortable with a newly refurbished bathroom with a huge shower.
