Set in a wonderful location on the village green, with outside tables for when the weather’s right, a great menu, warm welcome, lovely food, and fantastic value. We’ve just celebrated our 150’th meal at the George and Dragon in less than 3 years, so I guess that says it all. We love it and have never been disappointed. Our pet... More

Eaten here several times and it has always been good quality and reasonably priced but as they are animal friendly ,the last couple of times we have had a dog near by which I don't think is right were food is. In fact as soon as you walk through the door you can smell dog. We won't be going back.

The food was faultless, all fresh and well cooked. Sadly our waitress was as grumpy as they come and never smiled or made us feel welcome. Even my kids (6 and 7) asked why she was was so miserable. This took the gloss off a very nice evening.

Although I have eaten at the pub many a time before, and found the food relatively good pub grub, I was closer to disgusted than disappointed. My husband and I visited the inn on a Wednesday which was 'pie night' after we were almost cooked alive in the conservatory part of the restaurant we were moved into another part of... More
