“Stop for a pint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We had ambled around Arundel taking in the sights after visiting the castle. Warm friendly atmosphere for a relaxed pint before continuing to sightsee Arundel.

“Lovely meal on a beautiful summer's evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

The pub restaurant was fully booked, but we were offered a table in the garden. We had a lovely meal with the sun setting over the downs. The portions were huge and the food was freshly cooked. The sea trout was particularly good, as were the home made burgers

“Lovely lunch on a sunny terrace with great views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Having visited the George & Dragon many times over the past 12 months I thought a review is well overdue.
I live near Brighton and my friends are from Chichester so it is ideally located for us both. We have tried all the other local places but this is definitely the best. We always receive a warm welcome, the food is great and at this time of year, relaxing on their terrace looking out over the South Downs & River Arun Valley we wish we could have stayed all afternoon.
Today was busy but the staff were attentive and friendly. We were amazed when our lunches arrived within 10 minutes of ordering! Delicious as always & followed up by excellent coffee (and a piece of shortbread).
Keep it up George and Dragon. We will be back soon.

“Beautiful, clean, simple English pub and great views and staff”

Spent a pleasant afternoon after kayaking on the Arun. Sat outside looking up the South Downs way, sells great ales and we took one of the paper menu's home with us as the food looked so good.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We took my elderly stepmother to the George and Dragon for a birthday lunch as we had had good recommendations from friends. As we knew it would be a hot day I telephoned to book a table outside in the shade. I was told they do not normally reserve tables but in view of the circumstances they were happy to do so. We were given a very warm welcome when we arrived by all the staff and were seated on the patio in the shade as requested with beautiful views. The main menu was good and the specials menu offered a more varied range of dishes, especially fish. We had a delicious meal with good portions served by friendly attentive staff - I can particularly recommend the scallops. There is a large garden which makes it a perfect location on a summer's day. We're looking forward to our next visit.
