We stayed here for two nights on a biking weekend, accommodation is clean and comfortable, evening meals decent with a good choice. Breakfast was really excellent, I've had worse in five star hotels! Good full English with a selection of fresh fruit to have before, set us up well for the day.

My family and I stayed in Dent in a little cottage for a week,and this pub was recommended to us by the previous occupants. We arrived about 5.30 and were told the food was served from 6 onwards,which was fine with us. We enjoyed a drink from their good selection of ales whilst waiting.
When browsing the menu,it gave quite a descriptive example of all the food on offer,which sounded delicious. I ordered the belly pork and others ordered the chicken,ham and stilton pie,steak pie and the liver. When the food came,the pastry was dry and burnt round the edges with very little watery gravy. The belly pork was very flabby and there was very little meat. The vegetables were what can only be described as inedible!! The broccoli and cauliflower was brown and looked like they had been previously cooked and warmed through. When we informed the waitress,she said 'ok' and took our plates away. We finished our drinks and left. We will not be returning and will not recommend this pub for food in the future. A beautiful little village,and fab surroundings ~ it's such a shame as this pub could be so much more than just the ales!

This serves all the real ales from the dent brewery just up the road. Also serves a range of Samuel smiths beers. Great pub, real fire, welcoming to camra members who get a discount on the beer. Only popped in for drinks but also serves food. Well worth a visit.

We stayed here for 2 nights over the bank holiday. the food on the first night was nice so we decided to eat here again instead of going to the Sun Inn which also has varied reviews for food on other websites. The food was really poor on the second night. The beer is good, there was a choice of only four real ciders though and no perry available. The staff were pleasant but service was poor. We waited on the second nights for 30 minutes before our order was taken and fifteen minutes for breakfast for the same. We did not bother with breakfast on the second morning but it was fine in terms of choices of cereals, toast and cooked items. the landlord seemed indifferent to his customers. The noise from the bar in room 8 was pretty bad until after midnight on the second night but otherwise the room itself was fine. Sound insulation is poor and I would not stay here again in terms of getting a decent nights sleep. Dent Village is lovely and the walking in the area is great. The Sun Inn was the busier pub by far. Tea rooms in the village are both pretty average. All in all, a lovely area but this place could be so much better. The food is made to sound like gastro quality but the only thing of mentions the very good steak and ale pie! Pity!

The pub is located in the centre of picturesque Dent village and Dentdale, one of the quieter valleys and a fantastic spot for some good hikes. Many excellent walks out of the village or very nearby. Great Knowtberry summit from Cowgill is a good walk with fab views of the three peaks and beyond. The George and Dragon is a small inn with real ale and ciders on draught. Free parking. Breakfast is very good. Rooms are clean and warm. Bed comfortable. We had a room on first floor over the bar which was a bit noisy, although guests seemed to leave about 11.30pm - midnight and then it was quiet. Evening dining was a very varied experience. First night the starters of garlic mushrooms and potted shrimps, followed by steak and ale pie was good. Second night the meal was terrible. Pan roasted sea bass fillets with a lemon buttery sauce turned out to be poached sea bass with buttery sauce and slice of lemon. Pork belly dish was so dry and the crackling was too bendy and impossible to cut through that it had to be sent back. We were told the cheddar mash accompaniment had run out and were offered chips or new potatoes instead. The waitress did her best to rectify the problem with the pork belly and offered an alternative dish - not wanting to wait too long again (having waited for nearly an hour already) my partner decided to go for a starter instead. Oh dear - not sure what had happened since the day before when this starter was fine, but this time a large portion of mushrooms chopped up in what tasted almost like mushroom soup and heaps of garlic salt was presented!! Not a great meal all in all! Looking at other reviews it seems there is not a lot of choice for eating out in Dent and the quality is about the same at the two pubs. If you don't mind taking the risk with dining, this is a good little place to rest your head after a good day of walking and the chance to sup a good pint or two of local Yorkshire ale.
