“Typical english pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is a typical english pub in dar. Very convenient if you feel homesick! Great ambiance and all, this could be your local back home... Even though you are in tanzania to see a different culture, it is nice to have this place to hand!

“It's o.k”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

If you are looking for a proper English Pub in Africa, this is it! The owners are on duty all the time, they go to a lot of effort to arrange special events etc. If you are an Expat, you have not 'arrived' in Dar untill you have been to the George and Dragon. Food is average, prices on the expensive side, but the casual, friendly, make-yourelf-at-home atmosphere is a bargain

“The Dragon Slayed Me!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Great place to meet up with your clients and friends. Mood is always upbeat and energetic. Great food and drink. But carry extra cash though. Those bitings are not cheap!

“Good British Whiskey”

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Again a very good restaurant, good food, don't get fooled that is completely occupied from outside, come in and you'll find your seat. The ambiance is great, i really liked the shots menu and the currency notes hanging on the celling.
