Just telephoned to confirm my booking for this Saturday 22nd April to listen to an answer phone message saying "closed until further notice" - thanks for letting your customers know. Been going here for years - no idea what's going on

Nice quiet lunch in a friendly country pub. Welcoming staff and a nice atmosphere, food was tasty, hot and served in a reasonable time ( not too quick, just right). Would definitely return when next in the area.

We had a really lovely meal. I have dietary requirements of gluten dairy and egg free and the owner was on hand to adapt the menu to suit my needs. I had the prawns & pancetta then the skate wing followed by peach & champagne sorbet, it was delicious. My husband was recommended some wine by the owner which he... More

Have been regulars here for years and was always one of our favourite local restaurants. Dubious about going after learning of change of ownership and some of the recent bad reviews, but we thought we'd give a try. Sadly it was a mistake, though i must say that the new owner/manager seemed a nice enough guy. The menu is now... More

Very good meal last night with family. Fish options on the menu were excellent as usual. Nice atmosphere and were not rushed but well looked after.

Came as part of a large group for an NCT class reunion. I had king prawns and pancetta, roast beef and a cheese board. All dishes were excellent and the accompanying wine was fantastic too. We were well catered for by the service team who kept us all happy throughout the afternoon. We had a great time. Will be back... More

I have been to this restaurant couple of times now and have been impressed every time . The restaurant is spacious and decor is intrusive and contemporary. The food both times has been excellent and the atmosphere is very laid back and the staff very welcoming. Cant wait to go back in the warmer weather and sit out in the... More

We came with a large group of friends for Sunday lunch - delicious food, especially ribeye roast. It is so hard to get roast beef right in pubs and restaurants but here they nailed it. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, we all had babies and this was no trouble at all and easy access from the car park via ramp for buggies.... More

Michael H, Owner at The George & Dragon, responded to this review

Dear guest, Thank you for visiting our restaurant. Firstly let me apologise for what seems to be a disastrous visit. I'm sorry your meal wasn't up to your standards, the tagliatelle is made fresh on a daily basis & could have been overcooked. With regards to the trout I have the upmost confidence in my chefs to cook a dish... More
