It is difficult to reconcile our experience with the pub's high rating with Trip Advisor. Admittedly the main courses were excellent but the service was extremely slow. The fact that it was a busy sunny Sunday was no excuse because the severs didn't appear to be under pressure and were quite simply inattentive. Some staff training might well improve things.

I can't even comment on the food, as we never got that far. We arrived to complete chaos. We couldn't work out if it was table service as no one seemed to be tending to diners. We asked at the bar as it really wasn't clear where the diners were supposed to sit. As another reviewer commented, the bar was almost hidden by lots of drunk and loud people, and it was only 6pm. All the tables in the bar area where littered with newspapers, glasses and plates. The place was a mess. Finally we ambushed a girl who looked like a waitress. She made no eye contact, and seemed totally confused about where to seat us. She then thrust a photocopied piece of paper at us and walked off. We got up and walked out.

The pub was very busy but that didn't stop the staff smiling and passing the time of day with us. The food, and choices were excellent, and good value - worth a visit if you are in the area.

The George & Dragon is right on our doorstep and have been a few times but most recently with friends before Christmas. The food is good and the staff attentive. It has a good atmosphere.
I have been known to go with my daughter when my hubby and son-in-law are watching back to back footie at home! Weather permiting we like to sit in the beer garden with a bottle of wine and a some lunch.

Went for a drink recently, loud, foul and abusive language came from some drinkers at the bar. No attempt be staff to bring this to an end. Shame, not the place I would want to bring a lady to. Seems to me this establishment has inherited the clientel of the now defunct Kings Head
