Have been to the Old George many times and thought it worth mentioning that we have always had great experiences every time we dine. We've been on quiet nights, busy nights, as a couple and with work functions and we cannot fault the service. Both the hostess and young female waiters are friendly and it is always a pleasure when... More

My husband and I spent another beautiful evening at The Old George and Dragon Restaurant this week. Not only was the food superb but the service and atmosphere excellent. I love that you are treated like you matter when you are there.

Once a gorgeous restaurant to dine at offering fine cuisine and great service, I'm afraid it has come down a long way. This is despite many opportunities the trend is always downwards. For the price you would expect a culinary experience of hatted proportion. Unfortunately it is about the standard of your local RSL bistro! The service is very strange.... More

My wife and I had dinner here last night. In short it was a wonderful night. The food, which I was told was a new menu, was sensational. The character of the restaurant was wonderful, very old school. The owner was warm and engaging and talked to everyone. The chef made an appearance here and there and added to the... More

I wasn't quite sure if I should give this a score of 4 or 5 but I ended up giving it a 5 - it isn't always about the food - it's often the experience that pushes it to the next level. The restaurant is situated in the historic Maitland area so the restaurant's decor is a reflection of its... More

Attentive excellent service but our main course meat dishes were disappointing, especially for the high price charged. Vegetables were good and included in main price.

My wife and I called in for lunch last week having not been there for many years. The first thing you notice is the lovely welcome Jenny the host gives you. The next best thing was the white tablecloths and napkins clearly indicating a restaurant which knows how to do things right. The small dining room was cosy with high... More

Really enjoyed the whole experience at the Old George. We tried the degustation meal with matching wines and experienced the best meal we've had in a long time. The owner Jenny, was a great host and always made sure everything was just right for us. The chef Gavin appeared after we had finished our meal and chatted with us .... More

the place is a bit posh, white table cloths, beautiful decor, very old building. The waiter was a hoot, the service impeccable, the food delicious. We had a very enjoyable night, lovely ambiance.
