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.

“The best of Sandwich George and Dragon”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is a pub which looks ancient outside but is light and airy inside, in a town which we found hard to find but worth the effort. One of my friends wanted to visit Sandwich for her birthday. We were able to book through top table which was very convenient.

The food was great and good value for money. My friend said I should have had sandwiches in sandwich but other food tempted more.

I liked the fact it wasn't dark and cosy as I like to see what I'm eating. I would love to go back again. We just need another birthday.

“Good place for a group meal”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We visited the George & Dragon for an early Christmas get together with a group of friends, choosing from the Christmas menu. We received a warm welcome and friendly, helpful service. The food was very enjoyable and good value. Also enjoyed the beers.

“great food great value”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

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
