Used to eat here regularly before moving and glad to see its still got its charm. Menu looked nice and food coming out looked impressive. Nice log fire and selection of local ales including their own brew. Well priced too. Will be back to try menu soon on this showing.

Stumbled upon one of Kent's hidden gems! I have lived in the Canterbury area for a few years now and never knew this place existed!!! Just what we needed for a cold Tuesday lunch time. Warm fires and friendly staff with a delicious looking menu. We had the homemade burger which was so tasty and the seabass which my colleague... More

Came here for lunch today with my mum, after being treated terribly by a member of staff at the Fordwich arms. It was a breath of fresh air! The pub is very taste fully decorated and warm, and cosy with the log fire. The staff here are well mannered, welcoming, and pleasant to be around. The atmosphere was very friendly... More

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
