Since its significant update this excellent Wadworth pub now has a distinctly more up market feel without being pretentious. Good looking menu and good beer with high quality fixture and fittings. Very comfortable and relaxing place to have a drink or meal.

Found this little gem by chance. The food was outstanding and at a reasonable price. Lovely staff and compliments to the chef as all the meals were cooked and presented to a very high standard. Would definitely visit again when in the area. They have a happy hour on a Monday and Tuesday which is great value. Well worth the... More

We found this amazing pub via Tripadvisor and if ever the was a advert for the website this has got to be it. The pub is charming, the staff are wonderful and the food delicious. I would probably run out of complimentary adjectives before doing justice to the place. The staff deserves our thanks for accommodating 4 people plus 3... More

My friend and I visited here for an early supper. Parking was no problem, a warm welcome received and the menu selection very pleasing. We both chose steak which was very tasty and cooked to our taste. The pub got busier as there was an offer that night. I giggled at the size portions... huge!! The waitress was a good... More

Have been staying in this area for a few days every month for the last 12 years and I can't believe this is the first time I have been here, and it certainly won't be the last! Superb choice, settled for the George and Dragon burger and wasn't disappointed. Will definitely be back to sample more of the menu. Super... More

We have had another fantastic meal. The new specials on Fridays and Saturdays add to an already excellent menu. As ever the fish is worth mentioning along with the Roasts of the Day, all complimented by high quality and attentive service. Thank you!

We went to try this pub out for a Saturday lunch after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. I had the Haddock and chips and my wife tried the Baked Cod with Prawns in a Mushroom and Asparagus sauce. The size of the meals were massive and the Haddock came with mushy peas, salad and tartare sauce on the side. The... More

My husband and I came to the George and Deagon based on Trip Advisor reviews I personally think that for the money they charge there are better deals to be had locally. The service was very slow, however we weren't in a hurry, well if it was worth the wait, however on this occasion it was not, I was a... More
