My husband and I have been going to The Old George and Dragon for the last 6 years on our anniversary, and it never fails to impress. Even though the owners and chef have changed, it still maintains its high standards. The ambience and decor are wonderfully elegant and entice you to stay for as long as possible. The service is always top notch and the food- oh how can i describe how amazing it is? Everything I've tried has been exquisite, even the vegetables that come as a side dish to the main are wonderful. I've never been able to go past the creme brulee for dessert though- I'm sure the other desserts are of just as high a standard, but I look forward to the creme brulee all year! I can definitely recommend this restaurant, but make sire you have a few hours to properly enjoy it, as it is an experience you won't want to rush.

This is a beautiful restaurant offering quality food, a lovely atmosphere and exceptional service. Gavin is both an exceptional chef and an endearing person. You simply can't go past The Old George and Dragon for a 5star Maitland dining experience.

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 !!
