“New Jenny but just as good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2012

The Old George and Dragon has been a favourite restuarant of ours for many years and when it was sold and the new owners took over ( The prevous owner was Jenny and the new one is Jenny also) a couple of years ago I had my douts about how it would all come together. I am glad to say through the hard work of Jenny and her amazing Chef Gavin they have retained some of the classic dishes that the Old George was famous for and introduced some new classics of thier own.

Wine main is amazing and the food is briliant .Locals know all about The Old George and Dragon if you are in Maitland and looking for a really nice fine dining experience you simply have to try this place.

Keep up the good work Old G&D even if your customers can't tell the difference between a sparkiling red and white !!

“A local treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2012

Living within 10 minutes from this great restaurant and not visiting it for more than 10 years is a tragedy. The premises has changed hands over that time, but the quality of the food and wine list are still as superb as ever.

The staff are attentive, while not being in your face, polite, well spoken and seem honestly happy to advise and talk about the wonderful history of the building.

No need to change a thing....perfect and so close to home.
