Low beamed ceilings, old collectables scattered around, log fires and great beer and food... what more do you need on a cold Sunday afternoon?? Lovely place and would recommend if your in that part of the country any time!

A generally positive Sunday lunch with good food and drink , a bit pricey and with polite but at times disorganized service. Our party of six ordered a variety of starters which were all well received and arrived promptly. The mains were a little more problematic with the servers producing three correct orders and then 2 medium and one rare... More

Our friends, husband and I had been visiting the K9 Pleasure Park (secure area to let your dogs run free in a natural and relaxed environment) and were looking for somewhere to have lunch - the George and Dragon came up as nearby. We called them to check that they would welcome our furry friends and on confirmation booked a... More

Had not been here before and had dinner last night - it's a lovely old pub with a very homely feel and excellent menu. On top of the menu, the specials all sounded delicious. I had a blue cheese soufflé followed by sirloin steak, my other half had Thai fish cakes and lamb rump - all food, and wine, was... More

I have visited this place many times and on every occasion service has been brilliant. The place is quite small and can get busy very quickly mainly during weekends, so I would highly recommend to book a table in advance to avoid any disappointment. Car park can get a bit awkward to get you car parked, but once you find... More

On a very cold night how great to be warmly welcomed into the George and Dragon. The staff are without exception friendly and professional and make the whole evening a pleasure. The menu choices are excellent and the specials board just makes it even better. Some of the highlights include squid or game pate to start and then ox cheeks... More

Popped in for a lunchtime drink on a Saturday and went back in the evening for dinner - and got the best table in the house on a cancellation - right next to the fire. Very extensive menu, almost too much choice but crab and salmon special for starter was delicious, and chicken and fillet steak were too. Desserts were... More

A real country pub, serving good food at sensible prices. The lovely log fire in the bar is a bonus in wintry weather. Extensive menu and courteous staff are further plus points for this establishment. Do remember though, to mind your head, when you walk through to the dining area - and to the gents. On the latter, by the... More

An old fashioned pub with great cooking, real open fire and great staff and locals. Ample car parking and just a great experience whether for a quick drink, a small snack or a full meal. There is a restaurant section as well if you want to be slightly more formal but still relaxed. There is a set menu and also... More
