My wife and I booked an evening meal at the George & Dragon initially because we know Tom who works there, but we were determined to form our own opinions. We called in the afternoon to check the pub out, and were immediately impressed when the barman suggested my wife had a hot drink as she looked so cold! They had four very good real ales on tap, which suited me,the atmosphere was superb and the pub was very warm and cosy. We had a table booked for 6 pm, and the pub was already filling up when we got there. The menu was excellent, and even though the food was cooked from scratch it arrived very quickly. And it was superb! My wife's chicken dish was the nicest restaurant meal she'd had for ages, and my Rubens Burger was beautiful. And the portions were huge! When we left the pub at 9 pm the dining room was full and the pub was packed, sure signs that this was an enormously popular venue. We are ex-licensees with almost thirty years experience in the trade, and we can always recognise a successful, well run pub; great beer and food, friendly, efficient and extremely professional bar staff, warm convivial atmosphere. For us, the George and Dragon had all these in spades.
