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

Forget coming here unless you are a local, you will get a frosty reception, your money isn't good enough. The bar manager has an almost bi polar approach to the clientele, if you're the well heeled local in burgundy trousers and cravat you can expect banter, smiles and charisma. If you've dared to just stop in for a drink at... More

Recently visited the George & Dragon with family which included two year old twins, for Saturday lunch. The staff were very welcoming & when we arrived the high chairs were already in place which showed that they took accurate details of our booking & this made us all feel welcome from the outset. The menu was vast, lots of different... More

This is my favourite place to dine if a little expensive. It's well worth a visit. Everything I have tried on the menu has been excellent. Lovely pub with great atmosphere, roaring fires in winter and a great menu

A delightful pub with friendly staff. The lunch menu was superb and specials looked particularly inviting. The ribs we had were delicious and generous for the price. Will definitely visit again to try their fish dishes.

We popped into the George & Dragon on a whim! What a find! Very friendly and warm traditional pub with a lovely little garden. We decided to stay for dinner & met our lovely waitress Alex. She was fabulous - helpful and chatty. We ordered our food and shared a bottle of prosecco whilst we were waiting. As we had... More

Once you discover this little gem, you will want to come back to regularly. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the menu is excellent, with a wide choice of well cooked traditional pub grub, although that description doesn't do the place or the chef justice. They are equally welcoming to dog walkers with muddy boots as to families... More
