Service was prompt and very attentive from menus ranging from A La Carte to Special low cost 2 or 3 Courses lunches. Selections were made from all varieties of menu, which did not upset the delightful... read 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

This was a busy Thursday lunch swelled by our 30 or so walking group. They do a fixed price, 2 course lunch but we were not made aware when we ordered at 9 a.m. the same morning! Two of the group who were not walking but joined us for lunch did order from the 2 course deal and good value... More

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 money. Judging by the number of... 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
