Description: A traditional country pub, in a idyllic surrounding. Set in the peaceful village of Chacombe, the George and Dragon is only 1 mile from junction 11 of the M40. The George and dragon is the perfect place for all occasions, whether it be for entertaining corporate lunches during the day, cosy dinners, family get togethers or a drink with your friends. The pub dates back to the 17th century and still has original beams and fire places. During an extension 20 years ago a hidden well was discovered, which has long become a big attraction of the pub, along with the unique brass bar. There is a large patio area which can seat up to 40 people during the long and thirsty summer months.

Been many times and always had great food and beer - lunchtime treat!
Highly recommend the fish cakes and the burgers- popular place and rightly so!

“Had better”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Service very good. Food awful. Had tenderloin of pork. Not sure what animal it came from! Very small portion of meat and first tenderloin I have had that was chewy. Another dish on the table was sent back, burnt salmon apparently due to soy sauce. Maybe a bad night. Disappointing, particularly after reading previous reviews. Priced at a higher standard than presented at the table.

Thank you for your review. We're very sorry you had such a bad experience when visiting us. This is in no way upto our usual standard and I will look into what happened.

I am really sorry that you did not enjoy the pork tenderloin, this is my favourite dish on the menu and is usually very tasty indeed. However I can assure you that it was locally reared pork.
As for the salmon, the way in which it is prepared and served does make it appear to be burnt, we are going to try to change this so it can be presented in a nicer way.

We will do our best to rectify these issues and we hope that you'll give us another go in the future so you can experience the true quality of our food.

Please email me directly if you'd like to visit us again chrispeverell@hotmail.co.uk

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards
Chris

“VFM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Friends took us out as a way of saying thank you. They have a "sharing" starter menu and were quite happy for 3 to share a Meze. Houmos Falafel balls and a greek cheese and pepper dip.Just right and were happy to supply more Pitta bread when asked.Our other friend had Shellfood Bisque which he thoroughly enjoyed.
Mains were varied and I had a seafood salad the others had a burger (huge), Lambs liver and George and dragon pie.Only two were able to eat a sweet and that was Eton mess which again they were allowed to share. Waiting staff were V attentive.Have already recommended to a friend
