Went here 2nd of August - hour wait for food which was cold, small portions, grumpy staff with a 'don't give a toss' attitude. Added four drinks to my bill that we didn't have and couldn't be bothered to apologise. This is, was, our local, not anymore.

The menu looked promising and the fact that they serve food all day is a bonus. The food however was unacceptable. My salmon must have been cooked days before and then heated in the microwave. It was grey and totally inedible. I was not charged for my meal but have to say my companion's meal were just as poor they... More

An average bottle of Pinot set the stage, after a bit of a wait... The starter (potted shrimp) was superb. But the main was dire. Grizzley Roast beef, terrible roast potatoes and the veg tasted of smoked fish! Wont be coming back...

from the fantastic meals we had last year the food portions this year have got a lot smaller and a lot less tasty, meat from cheaper cuts and veg over cooked, we hope someone in the pub gets to grip with this issue before too long due to the wonderful time we have had there in the past. The beers... More

Recently enjoyed supper here on a lovely summer's evening. Bar service was friendly and helpful and the food was of excellent quality although not cheap. I had a goat curry which was delicious whilst the other half enjoyed the gnocchi. The weather was perfect for outside dining and the garden has great atmosphere. I will eat here again

We went to the George & Dragon recently for late lunch and the service was very slow - no reason given nor an apology offered. Ordered the Mediterranean mezes for 2 people (main course) which turned out to be barely adequate for one and at £24.95 could hardly be called value for money.

Fordwich is a beautiful village and the George +-Dragon is a perfect ingredient that serves delicious food in idyllic surroundings and unlike certain neighboring pubs welcomes customers From an extensive menu which changes daily so is freshly prepared, my friend had the Scallops and I chose the Risotto which was fantastic.. We then totally decadent and had a "sharing desert"... More

Went to the George and Dragon recently and was amazed at the transformation the place has had since my last visit................it's now very welcoming with a bit of class added. The menu is pretty extensive now with some delightful dishes served, and all served in a very rustic setting with all that you would expect from a country pub/restaurant including... More

My son is at university in Canterbury and took us to this pub for a family meal. Three adults and a child. It seemed promising with an interesting menu. I had the Prawn mojito cocktail with lime mayonnaise and sliced granary loaf which I though sounded tasty - small amount of prawns with ordinary mayonnaise with a squirt of lime.... More

Ate at lunchtime 4 meals over 40 minutes for food to arrive Goat curry was very good flavour but peas in rice were awful, other meals were very basic nothing special, extremely small portions and food is way over priced not value for money
