“Restaurant quality at Pub prices”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Have eaten at the G&D several times and the food is always excellent and very reasonably priced. The landlord is also the Chef (and I mean a fully-qualified-earned-his-title 'Chef'!). A good selection of drinks at (or below local) local pub prices. Go early and have a walk around the village first, unspoilt and full of character. Try and go on one of Sue's theme nights, a real experience!

“It's a pub with a view”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Seems a bit run down but the beer was good. We called in when we visited the nearby Simply French

“Great place, great value”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

I've eaten there twice and both times have had a very good experience. Couldn't believe how good the prices are, yet the food was every bit as good as other pubs, if not better, and the service was excellent. Not many people eating there, which made it feel a bit empty. So take this recommendation and fill it up! Great place!

“Friendly service, great food and a lovely location”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

The George & Dragon is my local pub, and also the place I most often take friends and family when we want to eat out. It doesn't purport to be a fine dining location, but for great pub food served with a smile in a relaxing environment and at a very reasonable price I've found it hard to beat.

There's a standard menu that's always available, and in addition to that they have a good range of specials which seem to change daily. The fish and chips are the best I've ever eaten, and my sister (a veggie) loves the Dragon Pie. For a lunchtime snack the toasted ciabattas are delicious and filling (my favourite is the Cajun chicken with lettuce & mayo--you can have it extra spicy if you ask for it that way), and on a cold day the Cumberland sausage with mash is perfect comfort food.

There's sometimes a bit of a wait, but I'd rather relax with a drink and wait for chefs to prepare real food than be served quickly with something disappointing that's been run through a microwave.

Very highly recommended.
