Great Location

What a great location right in the middle of nowhere - so peaceful - and yet only 8 or so miles from Reading. Friendly welcome, good beer and good food. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit (not the first) and will be back. It is also child friendly although there is no child's menu (or at least one was... read more

We popped in on the spur of the moment for a bit of lunch. Nice simple menu. We both had the dragon burger which was really tasty and well made. As it was a nice day we sat outside. The garden furniture is in desperate need of updating. The benches are tired to say the least. Pub had nice atmosphere... More

Great Walk to one of the two local pubs in Swallowfield. 6000 steps there and back. You can pay by contactless card and always get a friendly welcome. Dogs allowed. Nice beer garden at the rear. Good food on offer.

Delicious food and drink in great traditional surroundings. The atmosphere and service is excellent. Highly recommend a visit if you are with friends and family. Really cosy in the winter with an open fire on the go.

We decided to have dinner here for a special anniversary meal as we had not been here for a number of years and we fancied going somewhere different for a change. In spite of all the good reviews we found our meal to be very disappointing. For starters my husband chose Confit duck spring roll which he said was very... More

It was my girlfriends birthday on he 22nd of June and I'd heard about this place not far from us, so I called and booked a table. As soon as we entered we were met with big smiles from the young girl behind the... More

We arrived on Sunday night at 7-30pm. The pub was not busy and we got a table straightaway. We ordered just a main course as we were not that hungry. The food arrived after about 15 minutes and was very good quality. The service was quick and attentive. In all thank you very much for the meal, we will definitely... More

Had another great dinner at the George and Dragon in Swallowfield, Reading. Food was tasty and service was great. Price was very reasonable £60 for three (main course and two rounds of drinks). Well worth a return visit. Enjoy
