Well worth the trip The food here is really high end. The chef PAUL does an outstanding job in a very picturesque pub out in the country. The cuisine is really very very good.

Drove past as the M4 was shut so had to go across country. Popped in for a quick drink and got a great welcome in a real pub. Will definitely be back.

Late lunch to celebrate a birthday, 6 adults and 3 children. We had a great table, the waitresses were really friendly and professional. Lovely interior. Scallops to start and ox cheek for main, both delicious. A lovely relaxing lunch with fab food. Shame we aren't local or we'd be back more often. Would recommend.

We don't often get a baby sitter, so when we do it's time to go out for dinner. I hadn't been to the George and Dragon for a few years and was looking forward to the famous shoulder of lamb. My starter was a bit overcooked and hard, but the lamb shoulder didn't disappoint. My partner's steak, however, was mostly... More

We had organised a walk starting from the pub which was just over 2 hours. We were a party of 20 and the pub had organised us to be in a separate room overlooking the outside eating area. Room was excellent and staff took our orders for drinks from the table which greatly assisted our organisation! The pub has a... More

We booked here as it was near to Reading University were our daughter has just started her first year. We were made to feel very welcome by all the friendly and efficient staff. The roast was lovely and cooked perfectly. The puddings were delicious. The pub is very quaint and has kept all its charm. Clean and tidy. Will definitely... More
