Description: Welcome to the George and Dragon, Sandwich. This property dates from 1446 and has been a licensed inn since 1552. It has undergone many changes since it was built, but from the day it was first licensed over four centuries ago the house has never closed. At present brothers Matthew and Mark Philpott have the pleasure of running such a historical building. They deliver an outstanding range of traditional food and drink with a modern twist that caters to the needs of every customer. Head Chef, Mark, creates a new adventurous evening menu every month using as much local produce as possible. They have kept this little gem of a pub oozing with charm and character throughout the years.

A great place to go and have an informal meal. The food was reasonabley priced and very well prepared. All 3 of my dishes were excellent. The service by the 2 waiters was very good
I would recommend though that people book a table at the back rather than near the bar
I will certainly go back there again

We have eaten here many times and have kept meaning to post a review. We had my husband's 60th birthday meal at the George and Dragon at the weekend and that has prompted me to post this.We had such a wonderful time- the food was superb, the atmosphere could not have been more warm and welcoming- and the staff were outstanding - professional and friendly at the same time.There were fourteen of us in the party and we did not need to pre- order the food- we ordered at the table-and we were all served at the same time with our courses (each delivered to the right person without having to check)- the food just seemed to arrive- very impressive ! Both the food and wine are also excellent value.All of our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed themselves.The whole experience made my husband's birthday very special- thank you to all. Would definetely highly recomend

Have eaten here many times over the past 15 years however, not in the last couple of years since it's been taken over so was keen to give it a go. Food is still as good as ever however a couple of minor critisms... Whoever does the cleaning obviously neglects the light fittings, (they're covered in cobwebs). Chef, as much as you probably want to revel in seeing me enjoy the steak that you've just cooked for me please don't stare at me from the kitchen whilst I tuck in.
Aside from those two little observations it's still worth visiting and by far the best place to spend your money in Sandwich.

Have returned time and time again to this lovely pub/restaurant. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. The menu is small but with fresh ingredients and good prices it never fails to deliver a perfect meal.

You'll find this popular little "pub" tucked away in Fisher street in the architecturally interesting old part of the town, busily serving its genteel clientele with well kept beers and quality food. Service is smiley, helpful and efficient, and you won't have to wait long for your food to arrive. Small drinking area, so the emphasis is on the restaurant and what drinkers there are are usually a jolly, humerous and well behaved lot . A cosy open fire completes the charm and it's a great place for that family lunch, or take it outside to the little courtyard area if the sun is shining - which it usually is in this corner of Kent.

Hi there,

Thankyou very much for your review. We are tucked away in the back streets, so for people that find us we are glad they enjoy themselves. I shall tell the regular drinkers to keep up their good behaviour. Thankyou for the comments about the staff and food, I shall let the team know, and we most definitely look forward to seeing you in the future.
Many thanks again.
