Booked a table here for Sunday Lunch, we sat in the room behind the bar with a nice view out to the green and the village. Having sampled their food at their previous pub was soooo looking forward to it. As usual they did not disappoint. We had the Sunday Roast which was superb. Great staff too, very welcoming and...

I went to the George and dragon for the first time last night with my sister. The atmosphere was rally friendly and cosy. Especially with the log burners. It was an evening to meet the new land lords who were really lovely. There was a live band too. The food was delicious. I will definitely be going again.

Second visit within the week whilst staying locally. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable and Everards Tiger slipped down a treat. My son, my wife and I enjoyed our main course of choice from the menu, served piping hot on hot plates and staff checked with us during meal. Followed with well presented dessert that again, we couldn't fault. Bitterly cold... More

I visit The George regularly, both for personal & business meals & also just for the company & a decent drink!. You are always assured of a warm welcome, excellent service & tasty food at realist prices. The current management team, who are unfortunately leaving imminently, have worked hard to provide a great village local that caters to all people... More

Great place to stop and have a super pub lunch off the m40. This pub is only 1.5 miles away from junction 11 but so much better than the commercial places available the other side of the motorway nearer Banbury. Superb menu all year round, I've been three times now. Fish finger sandwich is excellent, scampi was really good as... More

Visited here today. Had lunch. Superb. My husband is vegetarian and usually his choices are fish and chips and a pasta dish. He was spoilt for choice today, there was as many veggie dishes as meat dishes. Very friendly staff. So cosy sitting by log fire. Only a few minutes from motorway. Definitely recommend. Will make sure we go back... More

Went here with my family, especially my amazing sister, whose birthday we were celebrating. As it was a Sunday it would be rude not to partake in gobbling down a good old - fashioned roast dinner. I had the veggie option - a cheese and spinach tartlet which was nice. My family had various meats which were nice and you... More

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.
