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.

This is the best place for pub food in Sandwich. It's all good - atmosphere, cooking, service, value for money particularly at lunchtime. The chocolates with coffee are to die for...

We had dinner here when we were in Sandwich last year and had looked forward to a family occasion here again. The evening was pleasant with good food, friendly service and a bill that came to a fair and reasonable amount.
See you on our next family visit!

It was our first visit to G&D and it is not going to be the last... Pub area was full and lively with locals enjoying Saturday night. Friendly staff showed our table. Restaurant area nice and clear, you can see the busy kitchen. Menu is catering for everybody and good drink suggestions to complement your meal. I had day's catch it was fresh and delicious. We completed our dinner with perfect espressos and complimentary homemade chocolates. Staff are very attentive and helpful. It is very friendly environment that you feel comfortable and relax. Only one thing we found negative is, in the beginning our service was too quick.

Recommended by locals, the G&D is in a side street and was covered in scaffolding and didn't look open. When we opened the door it was like a film set after 'action', the place was full and buzzing. We were lucky to get one of the last tables because it soon became full (a Thursday night). Definitely a watering hole for the locals and some of the well-heeled.
The food was good as was the service.
Mostly though it was the hearty and warm atmosphere which we liked best.
