Varied menu with an emphasis on fresh fish from Cornwall. A warm welcome from Chippy the landlord and his staff who were very attentive during service and quick to bring additional warm bread. A busy lunch time as Good Friday, a lively atmosphere and all diners appeared enjoy their food and were recommending dishes to us. I had baked potted... More

Went here with our son and daughter-in-law for a treat, taking up a discounted deal of £54 for a two course meal for four. The standard of food was top class albeit a bit meagre as the main meat or fish only came with a tiny ramakin of potato whilst anything else was charged as a 'side'. Now I may... More

The George and Dragon majors on fresh fish and is very good at that - but watch out what you are ordering as the prices can give central London a run for it's money - e.g.Dover Sole at £32, side dishes extra is not cheap but you pays your money and you takes your choice........... We had an excellent meal... More

Menu had extensive fish options/specialities. Food well cooked and presented, portions good. Rather strangely no vegetables offered although there was a side salad on menu. That would be my only criticism. Addmitedly I did not ask though. We thoroughly enjoyed.

We went on a chilly night midweek, we hadn't booked and was surprised to find the place virtually empty, with just one other table dining. The fire in the bar was nearly out but we choose to eat in the bar. Wine to start was delicious, we choose Kippers and souffle to start and these where equally delicious, we both... More
