Great value Sunday lunch

After a Sunday morning walk we stopped at the George And Dragon for lunch. The staff were very friendly and helpful with the menu choices. The starter and main (a lovely piece of plaice with new potatoes and 5 vegetables) arrived promptly. At £15 for two courses we thought it very good value for... read more

Having used this restaurant for many years I went around the back to the Kitchen to find out what went wrong . I was confronted by people smoking and... More

A Saturday family lunch for an early Christmas meal. The staff were very attentive and very polite. But the food was quite poor. It must be "ping" food, all the Turkey dishes were exactly the same, not possible in the real world, they must be mass produced. We will go again because it is close to home, but will be... More

On arrival we were met by a less than welcoming lady behind the bar. A rather brusque 'yes' was the initial greeting! On informing her that a reservation for four had been made she searched the reservation lists and said she could not find our name or if it was there she could not read it! However a table was...

Food was lovely and reasonably priced. Pub is a little tired in particular the carpet needs replacing in the restaurant. Ignoring the decor though the food was excellent, service was by a very young lady who tried hard but her age meant she was quite shy. So lacking on experience but on the whole we were there for good food... More

Business lunch which was very good in terms of service, informal but nice atmosphere. Feeling of a country pub but with a touch of flair. Happy to return.

Have been going to this restaurant for the last 12 years, never had a poor meal or service. Excellent steaks and Seafood which are the specialities of the House. Have tried other local competitors but keep going back to the G & D because of the service, quality and value for money. My friends from other parts of the country... More

We have visited the restaurant three times. The steak is excellent and the seafood is fantastic! It has a relaxing atmosphere suitable for all ages. There are romantic corners and family corners! If it was not on the pricy side we would be there every week. Good variety of food for all tastes. I would highly recommend it, you will... More

A country pub with an excellent restaurant. A good range of choices, cooked and presented to a high standard. Off the 'beaten track' but well worth the trouble.
