Visited a couple of weeks ago as part of a group of eight to celebrate a friends birthday. The staff are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. A wide range of drinks available. A very interesting menu, making it very hard to select what to eat!!! The portion size was ample, possibly a few more vegetables would have... More

We have eaten here more times than I care to remember! The portions are huge for Sunday Lunch the beef over cooked - tastes like liver I prefer mine pink or at least tender! It's popularity is it's downfall due to the huge portions on a Sunday. Which must affect profits - hard to eat a three course Sunday Lunch... More

We visited the George & Dragon with family and discovered there was a special offer menu of 2 mains for £15. This menu was so interesting and had something that pleased all four of us that we hardly looked at the more extensive a la carte menu. We ordered a single starter of potato skins with dips to keep us... More

We came here by accident, our usual favourite in the area wasn't serving food at the time, so gave it a go. First impression was of a small village pub, as we walked in, we were quickly shown their eating area, that was partly a conservatory.
