We needed somewhere to stay that was dog friendly and fairly close to Avebury and Stonehenge. Our preferred option was a pub that was reasonably priced and fairly central. There were a few options and after corresponding with Janet and Andy we chose the George and Dragon. It was a little more expensive than one option but still very good value.
On arrival, we were made to feel very welcome by the owners and staff. The rooms are located just outside the pub; this appealed as there is a little more privacy. Janet showed us to the double room which was comfortable and immaculately clean. The attention to detail was the provision of a large umbrella to go to the pub in the rain-it's only a few metres away.
The food was excellent(see restaurant review) with a hearty breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble and the stay was very enjoyable. We got involved in conversations with the owners and regulars about organising different events. For example, when we return when the weather is a little better, I have challenged the cricket team to a quiz. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the George and Dragon to anyone who wants to stay in Wiltshire, you will not be disappointed.
