Family owned and run - in house chef - no freezer to microwave here! I am a regular here now. The food and service are always great. Early bird menu is fabulous value - as is regular menu. As I am coeliac, an in-house chef who is prepared to accommodate my needs is a huge plus. Also dog friendly bar... More

Visited several times now, so thought it was about time I share the experience for those who haven't yet sampled the food, Fresh Vegetables perfect every time, with Roast and Mashed potatoes, choice of Beef Pork, Chicken or Lamb, plenty even for those with a larger appetite costing around £9.00 for 1 course or £13.00 for two etc... Simply put... More

Went here last night for a meal for our daughter's birthday as a family of four. This is our second visit. Once again were not dissappointed. The food was excellent, the portion sizes were plentiful, rather have more than not enough! Home made food, fresh vegetables and massive home made real chips! Staff were really friendly and attentive. Paid the... More

First of all, ignore John Watson's review - he obviously is obviously not accustomed to fresh vegetables! However, although we have enjoyed the fast we don't go anymore as even the small portions are too big for us! It's not about quantity, it's all about quality. Beef over cooked for our palate - the pork is lovely! If you like... More

This evening we visited George & Dragon for the 6th time. Food was as ever fresh & delicious. The service remained prompt and attentive. Isn't it strange how these 'offensive scribblers like John Watson (a made up name of wo/man with a grudge) have never so much as posted a Tripadvisor review EVER. Perhaps he /she should change their moniker... More
