I ordered the snails as a starter and had to send it back twice before giving up and ended just not eating anything else at all. The foul stuff just ended up spoiling my appetite altogether.

The food is just plain and simple bad. This is a pub and it should stick to s small menu of Pub grub ie: Steak, egg and chips Nothing to complicated or fancy. I have visited here 4 times in the last 2 years by mistake. I really hope I don't have to again!

It's my first time to eat here as I'm from out of town. Nothing beats a black label Draught and a Good old fashioned Burger. My Beer was ice Cold and my burger was delicious! Awesome evening, can highly recommend!

I went there on my own (not very happy as I dont do alone but was away from home on business so had no choise), Friendly warm reception, was allowed to take my time with my meal and after eating was allowed to just sit and enjoy a glass of wine before leaving. No rush, food was lovely and well... More

Had a good meal there with an old friend and enjoyed a couple of beers there as well. Waiter was very good helpful and friendly. Food was not too bad and had a good time there, Speed of service could improve but overall I would recommend it.

Didn't have a great time at this restaurant in George. It started very promising with a server Ruan who was very friendly and even went and wrote down directions for us to a local museum we couldn't find. Unfortunately when our orders came (both seafood type platters) mine was the wrong one and neither had chips on. It was suggested... More

Went to Dros in George for the first time one Sunday for lunch. I had a seafood platter and my daughter had a pizza. The food was not as expected. The pizza was cheaply made - cheap ingredients and the base was horrible! The seafood platter was mediocre. Afterwards we weren't even asked if we enjoyed our food - just... More
