Description: A traditional country pub, in a idyllic surrounding. Set in the peaceful village of Chacombe, the George and Dragon is only 1 mile from junction 11 of the M40. The George and dragon is the perfect place for all occasions, whether it be for entertaining corporate lunches during the day, cosy dinners, family get togethers or a drink with your friends. The pub dates back to the 17th century and still has original beams and fire places. During an extension 20 years ago a hidden well was discovered, which has long become a big attraction of the pub, along with the unique brass bar. There is a large patio area which can seat up to 40 people during the long and thirsty summer months.

Service very good. Food awful. Had tenderloin of pork. Not sure what animal it came from! Very small portion of meat and first tenderloin I have had that was chewy. Another dish on the table was sent back, burnt salmon apparently due to soy sauce. Maybe a bad night. Disappointing, particularly after reading previous reviews. Priced at a higher standard... More

Decent food and bar selection. Burger deal on a kind at is good value. Atmosphere is good if you manage to get a table in the bar, little bit staid if in one of the larger dining rooms though. Decent, friendly staff. Ok value.

A recommendation of one group of friends suggested we try this pub restaurant. A little bit further than we would normally go for our regular injection of calories, as we are blessed locally with good food outlets. However, the recommendation was from a good source. The menu list was quite extensive and a selection of starters and main courses ordered.... More
