Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Reviewed 28 July 2023 via mobile

Despite the owners claiming no responsibility for the car park when I asked, I have since discovered (welcome to the internet) that they employ Parking Eye to police it. I parked at their car park for 12 minutes but could not pay as the machine...was out of order. I took a photo to prove it. 2 weeks later I get a threatening letter to say I owe them £100. PAY WITHIN 28 DAYS! (Remember that it was a 20p parking payment). I appealed. The pub says they have no idea (do you remember the internet thing?) I am now still waiting for a response from a company that somehow has access to my name and address whilst providing no method of contact. AVOID THIS PUB!!!More

I parked in your car park on 16 June and have been fined by Parking Eye. The machine was not working (I have photographic evidence) when I went to pay. Paying by the SMS provided is no longer supported ( I have photographic evidence). I...tried. Parkin Eye have refused my appeal despite the evidence. I do not have the time or energy to fight them. You say in your answer to a previous review that it is not your responsibility. I beg to differ if you are employing these people to manage your car park. I note they are not registered with the Ombudsman service. What a surprise !More

Visit the George and Dragon at your peril! We parked in the car park at the rear of the George and Dragon pub on a Thursday lunchtime and went in to the pub. It took a few minutes for our family members to gather together....We then went to the bar but discovered they were not serving lunch. We did not enter our car registration number at the pub till because we'd gone in for food and so decided not to stay. We moved our car a few minutes later and had a lovely lunch at the Gather Inn. We were also able to park opposite in a free car park. A couple of weeks later, we received an Parking Eye invoice for £100. This showed we'd used the car park for 12 mins (the time it took to park, go into the pub and discover there was no food). This does not seem at all in the spirit of having a family meal in a traditional pub. There needs to be more flexibility here on the part of the pub (they could have advised us about Parking Eye, they could have entered our car registration into their pub till because they are well aware that this is frequently happening) and also on the part of Parking Eye (who offer a 0 period of grace - clearly a highly unreasonable company who are just out to make a fast buck). Rather left a sour taste in our mouths after our little visit to Batheaston.More

We were locked out of our Airbnb so called in here to ask for help. Evie went out of her way to help us, she organised the locksmith’s and we waited in the pub for them to arrive. Luckily we had a debit card. The...pub has a really good selection of beers, spirits and ciders. The locals in there were just lovely and calmed us down in what was an extremely stressful situation and special thanks to Evie who was brilliant! Nothing too much trouble made us feel so welcome. We ordered food from the Indian attached when we managed to get in which was absolutely delicious, bhaji’s to die for and each dish we had was amazing best Indian we have had for ages. Thank you to everyone that helped us last nightMore

Nice pub and great bar service but could be so much nicer if integrated with Easton Spice and served Indian lagers. Easton Spice does great food, sit in or takeaway but let down by scruffy toilets and lack of Indian lager at the bar.

I visited this pub for a Band that was playing, parked out the back and seen you can park for free using the pub facilities, great bar staff who advised the car park was not anything to do with the pub itself and is owned...by a private landowner. Reasonable priced drinks, locals very friendly and to my surprise a Indian restaurant out the back. A great little village pub to visitMore

Upon entering the pub we were met with a quiet atmosphere - a barmaid and two other customers drinking by the bar. My girlfriend went to find a seat by the pool table while I ordered two drinks. Whilst waiting for the drinks I was...asked a) am I voting this election, b) who am I voting for, and c) what faith am I. 3 weird questions to be met with. Laughing these comments off and not answering any of the questions I took the drinks and sat down. The music was loud in the bar but not too loud to talk over. It was then that one of the two customer walked over the to jukebox beside us and said ‘sorry for the song request’ and put something on, heading back to the barmaid and other customer and pointed over to us repeatedly and laughing. When the song came on it was apparent we weren’t welcome. The music was turned up very loud by the barmaid and the song ‘What Part Of F**k Off Don’t You Understand’ came on. By the gestures being made from the customers and the barmaid it was apparent this was aimed at us. When the song finished we went over and said thank you for the drinks. The barmaid and the customer laughed and said ‘you going after one drink?’ when we replied we’re obviously not welcome. Such a shameful end to a Sunday afternoon walk. Never returning and never recommending this god awful, backward place. Batheaston deserves better.More

I have been to the George and Dragon a few times now and have had nothing but positive experiences.It is a traditional local pub and when you first walk in there you are greeted with smiles and made to feel totally welcome. The prices are...not too bad either, around a few quid for a pint. The hilarity in that is if you walk a mile or two into the centre of town, you are paying almost double that for the cheaper pints on tap. The locals are friendly and will have long conversations with you, alongside the staff where you feel after time you have made new friends. I have been made aware many a time about the deals they have including happy hour which ranges in times seven days a week. Definitely worth a visit, you will go more than once!More

Dishonest staff, nasty people. Stay well clear. I pulled over in their car park to look at directions - I was there for 11 mins - and then a few weeks later was hit with a parking ticket for £160. If the signage was clear...there is no way I would have pulled in. I called the staff there who said they would cancel the ticket... and they never did. 9 months later I've had to pay £170 to avoid court action. What a hole - stay well clear - who want to support a business that behaves like this?More
