We were warmly welcomed, and showed to our table. What professional and friendly staff they were. The food was great along with the service. I only write when I feel a review is worth writing. There was nothing my husband and I could fault. My lovely husband proposed to me there and we have been married now for 12 years.... More

Been here several times for lunch. Sunday lunch is great but service can be slow. In the week the menu has a great range of choice including starters and mains as well as lighter bites. The setting and ambience is lovely with little pockets of tables which are cosy and private. The food is very good although I did notice... More

Great place to go. Food very high quality and ambiance really great. They are a bit slow though and you have to grab their attention - noticed this on several meals here. But I still go back...

I reluctantly write this as a few years ago I came and it was very good, but a lot seems to have changed. We booked and were advised there was a large party coming in at the same time so adapted our booking for half an hour earlier. We didnt get our drinks for about 20 minutes and our dinner... More

I haven't been here in years, it was always a family haunt as a child and when looking for a place to eat one evening we came across the George and Dragon. My friend was visiting and I wanted somewhere local that had a lovely country pub feel with good food, and it didn't disappoint. The staff from the very... More

One of the two pubs in Fordwich, more for the passing day through. Very popular with locals and visitors. Good selection of wine and beers, can't wait for the 'Gin' evening!

WOW! Where shall I start? My daughter loves this pup and picked it for her 9th birthday. We arrived to banners and balloons done by the staff. The staff here are wonderful. Kind, caring and fully attentive to all your needs. No matter what you ask of them they are so willing to oblige. The food is to die for.... More

Traditional pub and restaurant in small Kentish Town. Good ambience, friendly and attentive waitresses. Three of us had pheasant and I found this tasty although one member of our party felt there could have been a larger portion. Would recommend this restaurant for a pleasant lunch.

Thank Ge0n
