Not as good as it used to be.

We went there for the Friday Steak Night and normally go there for birthdays, anniversaries etc and have done so for the last ten years. We obviously had steaks one which was good and one which had not been trimmed and had a lot of gristle. The removal of gristle in my opinion is basic kitchen... read more

They do a three course meal for £20 per couple, most main courses on the normal menu are at least £11 each so the three courses are excellent value for money. The food we had was superb, it gets very busy so its best to book. Pleasant staff, old country inn atmosphere. Really enjoyed it.

Four of us ordered a meal which took a long time to come. Three of the meals were judged excellent although mine was not. I had Italian chicken, the pasta was tough and the chicken even tougher. The tomato sauce was lovely but the rest of the meal was actually inedible. Sadly we were not asked part way through our... More

Went for a meal with my husband last week. As soon as we walked in the door the cold hit you. We sat down and ordered our meal, the food was ok. Unfortunately I got colder and colder, when we went to the bar to pay the bill I said it was far too cold and the man behind the... More

Visited with a friend for lunch, having been here a handful of times in the past. A traditional pub, the decor is a little dated but perfectly ok. We sat in the patio/garden area at the back of the building which was pleasant in the sunshine, although we would have appreciated the bird poo being cleaned off the tables. The... More

Couldn't fault this place. Excellent food and excellent service. Originally went to a different pub down the road and left before ordering as it was very unappealing. This place was very clean, friendly and the food was of a very high standard. Will definitely come again.

Oh dear. Just had a complete comedy meal at the usually reliable George and Dragon. Hope this is a one off and not a sign that the ever-expanding group has got unmanageable. Only two waiting staff on, no one behind the bar, and only two kitchen staff (neither, on this evidence, a chef). Here's a simple suggestion - when you've... More
