Description: The George and Dragon Inn is a timeless Victorian gastro pub nestled in the Yorkshire Dales National Park complete with a crackling log fire, traditional ales on tap, a patio with views of Pen Hill and rustic walls decorated with framed sketches. We couldn't think of a cosier place to settle in with a bottle of red than the George and Dragon Inn's down-to-earth dining room, and apparently we're not the only ones. With one AA Rosette under its belt, the restaurant is a popular spot for Sunday roasts, afternoon tea and hearty evening meals, and the modern British menu includes signature dishes such as the roast Nidderdale chicken breast served with smoked applewood risotto.

“I great dog friendly stay with fantastic food and staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

What a great little pub in this small village. We stayed one night with our 6 month puppy and the room was comfortable although not sure carpets are a good idea when you allow dogs to stay
The bar and restaurant area are basic but the food was fantastic
I do understand the previous comments about the owner as he can be quite off but for us that just added to the whole experience. His wife is very lovely. They are a nice couple.
As for our puppy she was totally spoilt by the owners and they even went out of their way to make her a bacon breakfast.
We will definitely be going back.
Many thanks

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My boyfriend and I went for dinner at the restaurant of the George and Dragon Inn whilst visiting the Yorkshire Dales national park. The staff there were very friendly and helpful and the service was fantastic. The dishes were presented very well (which was pleasantly surprising because we expected to get a standard pub meal - but this was certainly above par!) Great menu filled with a range of excellent local country food. The George and Dragon has a lovely, warm and cosy atmosphere. We would certainly recommend this place to anyone living in or visiting the Dales!

“Lovely Dales Pub with Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We stayed here for the weekend with our dog, and had a wonderful time. A lovely old pub with smart, comfortable warm rooms, a cosy beamed bar with roaring fire and four real ales. The menu was fantastic for a country pub and the food was absolutely brilliant. We were given a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the hosts and their staff. We enjoyed two days walking in beautiful countryside, taking in Aysgarth Falls, Castle Bolton, and one or two other Dales pubs, all in all a fantastic weekend. The George and Dragon is a special pub, which is well worth a visit, I would recommend it without any reservation.
