This was our first visit since the pub has been taken over by new management. We both had a starter and main and I am pleased to say that all the dishes were great. The menu has all the pub classics, but the food is...More

We had an amazing Sunday roast lunch at this restaurant. The food was delicious and one of the best Sunday lunches we have eaten (outside of our home). Our Server was David (according to the bill) and he served us very well indeed. We weren't...More

We stumbled upon the George & Dragon while trying to find somewhere to lunch. What a fortunate happenstance. It was wonderful to sit close to the open fire and marvel at the ancient architecture. As the lunchtime ‘specials’ were rather restrictive, we chose from the...More
