Have been eating here on and off for 3-4 years but this was our first visit back for over a year. Food quality and choice very good still, I had a mushroom risotto with Tarragon (which should really be described as a tarragon risotto with the odd mushroom) but was still light and pleasant, and my wife had the Lincolnshire...

While staying in Reading on business from the USA, my gracious UK host located this restaurant for an authentic English pub experience. He hit it right on!! This definitely isn't a place the normal tourist would just find. It's out of the way in a small village. We went pretty late on a Sunday evening, so the place was quiet.... More

My wife and two children (aged 9, 12) went for a birthday lunch. The menu contained a good range of food well beyond the basic menu often found in pubs at lunch time. The childrens' menu kept our youngest happy. The food and drinks were very good, the service was friendly and efficient and was only a little slow when... More

Been our local restaurant for 8 years, we used to go there a lot, but then management changed and the service and food nose dived. Used to be an excellent venue, last few occasions service has been awful - once we were asked if we would like desert when we had not had our main course yet. Consistency would get... More

We frequent the George and Dragon regularly because it is far superior to the other pubs in the area. The staff are usually good although there does appear to be quite a turnover. We have taken friends and family there and all have been impressed and returned. We particularly like their fillet steak. Being used to eating fillet in South... More

Took our Turkish business visitors there for an evening meal. Food was great and they loved the British uniqueness of the place - the timbers, the fire, the low ceilings!! Have been there socially with family and friends too. Always good food. Bar area often a bit cramped but definitely worth a visit.

A very welcoming pub, with great food and staff. There is a circular walk on their website which is very pleasant. Couple this with dog - friendliness, and you have a great combination for a Sunday outing

We ate here recently and ordered 2 courses for 2 people. We arrived at 7:30pm, were the only ones in the restaurant, and were shown to our table. That is pretty much where the good service began and ended. The staff working that night (I think there were 2 on the restaurant) were terrible. They were impolite and couldn't get... More
