It is refreshing to find a pub doing pub food at pub prices, no confusion with the menu like many pubs in the area charging fine dining prices for confused food. Relaxed and is what it is, food could be tweaked a bit to make it really good but on the whole well worth visiting.

We met here for a family meal. Pleasant, helpful staff and good platefuls of hot tasty pub food. Plenty of choice and good value. Step free access from car park at rear. Would return.

Our family gathered at the George and the Dragon (once again), this time for my Grannies 80th Birthday celebration. The staff went head over heals to set up the decorations and plan the night prior to my Grannies arrival. And once it was in full swing, the staff maintained their helpfulness and considering the number of us and the variety... More

This was our second year of visiting the George and Dragon whilst on holiday in nearby Heckingham. We were thrilled to find the landlady and landlord were the same, welcoming and friendly as ever and catering to the needs of 4 adults, 4 choosy children and 2 doggies. We were even more pleased to find they still do their homemade... More
