“Great place for sport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Managed to watch Ireland best Wales during the first 6 Nations match in Feb 2013. consoled myself with several local and international beers. Food above average cost, but told it was good. We did not eat there. Some distance from City Centre - taxi around 15-20,000 TSH.

“A very sad experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We were very happy when we started visiting this place and have been a regular customer for a while now until lately we experienced the following:

1. Same problem as others have mentioned, the place is full of smoke and loud noise.

2. Careful when you order drinks as the staff may bring sometime else and will not even bother to inform about the changes. Sometime back one of my friend ordered Jack Denial and he got something else. This may become very embracing and annoying especially when the staffs have no sympathy.

“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!
