Have the crab seafood platter

We regularly visit this restaurant for their excellent crab seafood platter. House white goes well with it. Service is very friendly. Ambiance takes you back in time. Nice to visit as a couple, or with family and friends. They have rooms too, but we've not tried those. Worth the trip.

Food here was brilliant and the staff were attentive and courteous. Their speciality is seafood. Must try and visit if you are ever in Rowde.

Shame this place is so expensive. We had a very average pub meal here and certainly not worth well over £100. Wine was also in my view over priced. Nice people but steep pricing. Fish was not as good as advertised.

We parked our rental car at the back of the restaurant and headed in. The waiteresses seemed surprised to see us Asians and kept us at bay. Nonetheless, we had a simple, quiet and lovely seafood dinner by the fireplace. The monkfish was great! A pity that racism was evident here.

Called in on the way to Bath. After having read the reviews was a bit put off by the external appearance but the pub was most attractive inside. It was a quiet Monday but a full menu was available. The young lady at the bar could not have been more friendly or helpful. The daily fish menu lived up to... More

Ate here two nights running and had delicious meals both times. A varied and interesting menu in a cute pub. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Our group of family and friends met here for lunch on the Friday of our annual golfing get together. There were eight of us and we really did not require a main meal as we were eating in the evening. As a rule they did not do sandwiches/baguettes etc. but they went out of their way to provide us with... More

We stopped on our way to Stonehenge for lunch. It is a nice looking place and the proprietors were friendly enough, Our meals were pretty simple pub fare -- like sandwiches etc. it was okay and worth a stop but not particularly memorable.

We were staying at a nearby B&B and were recommended the G&D for food - so we tried it for one night and then went again the following night Its not pub grub (not pub grub prices) but more on the lines of a gastropub specialising in fish with so many of the dishes being freshly made on site -...

We are lucky to live within a stones throw of a lot of great places to eat. That said, The George & Dragon are right up there for fab food any day of the week in a local pub setting. Great food, great service and we love to go back time and time again. Thoroughly recommended
