Went for family lunch on Xmas Day. Welcome and service were excellent but food not as good as expected. The portions were small, and although tasty the roast beef only came with a few potatoes, two tiny carrots and one small piece of parsnip. When asked for extra veg I was bought a small dish of mixed vegetables, but it... More

Sunday evenings in my experience are usually 'dodgy' when it comes to getting a quality freshly cooked meal in a pub. Service after the lunchtime 'roast crowd' can also be patchy and uneven. If that is your experience get down to The George and Dragon where the food and service are great, add in well kept ales and a good... More

Love this little pretty little pub. We travel 40 mins to get there . The atmosphere, food and setting is perfect. Also do great events for charity including a duck race in the river which lies next to the pub.

Looking at the menu the prices range from 10.00 GBP up to 20 GBP. Most of them where in the range of 13 - 16 GBP. I though that this was a little expensive but if my food was good I would not complain. Unfortunately the prices do not match the size of the plate. We were four people and... More

It is a few years since I last ate at this pub and I must say I was pleasantly surprised when we were taken here for lunch by local friends. Firstly I liked their selection of predominantly local real ales. The Goodies stout was powerful and very nice in the mouth. The place was busy (Sunday lunchtime) which created a... More

It was raining when we went in and the fire was on. Immediately it gives you a warm and homely atmosphere, just what you need in a pub. It is very nicely decorated, and the food was lovely. We were four and two of us had the goats mousse with salad. The mousse was very light, and the salad and... More

The Sunday lunch we had was delicious, my wife had the roast lamb and I the roast pork. Both the lamb and pork were full of flavour with an array of different vegetables and a huge yorkshire pudding on the top which was so light. Desserts were just as lovely, my wife had the chocolate brownie with ice cream and... More

Out for a drive in the country we came across this beautiful pub sat along side the Great stour river. The welcome we received was excellent, the menu with it's daily specials was equally as good along with great selection of real ales.
