“Friendly, Fun, Filling Food and Clean as a whistle”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

The new owners have completely transformed this village pub into a bustling, quaint spot to sup on locally brewed cider or have a nice glass of wine. The menu is just what you want to read when you need a delicious, tasty and filling meal and the staff are lovely. family run, with a warm family feel and I loved that the Dogs were welcome in the public side, not segregating us dog lovers like a lot of pub's are starting to do.

I would highly recommend a trip to this lovely decorated, highly refurbished pub, even if it is too wow yourself with the transformation. I shall definitely be returning and telling all about it. I am interested in what the warmer weather will bring, with a huge garden area, it could be a hub of community activity. A big high five to the new owners.

“Lovely local clean pub!!”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

I visited here in the week after hearing it had been taken over in February, for dinner and the food was lovely and at good prices too :) it was lovely and clean with polite bar staff and the atmosphere in general was pleasent :) It was good to hear about further improvements that they will be making to the pub on top of what a great job they have done already. Will be visiting more regular :)

“great village pub”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Ignore the first review on this site, Kevin and penny have done a great job of renovating the George and dragon, and it is now unrecognisable to how it was, great food, great choice of wine, it is wonderful to finally have a great pub, run by great people, Fordham's loss is definitely our gain... Happy days.

“New owners great night”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Always enjoyed the friendly people in the George. After a couple of years away returned this week to meet some old friends and also met the new owners. Place has been completely refurbished, looks great and the new gaffer was friendly, chatty and made us feel really welcome. Always said this pub had the potential to be a really great local and in the new hands has every chance. Food was good and staff were attentive - will hopefully get to go back soon.

“Great Food, Lovely welcoming atmosphere”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Me and my Husband brought our two young children here for a light lunch at the weekend, as soon as we walked in we felt a warm welcoming atmosphere. We ordered a couple of sandwiches for our girls and we had Ciabatta sandwich. The food was excellent and we also couldn't resist the spicy hot wings!! Will have them again! Overall a lovely place, clean, modern, fresh and will definitely be returning, thank you!!
