Cody country pub. Great food and service. Just a little on the pricey side but I've been before and will definitely visit again.

So good we booked it twice. A year later, another stay to break up our long journey. ONce again this pub didn't disappoint. Lovely accommodation, dogs welcome, lovely pub, great food and I'll have to say the barman was particularly talented, charming and knowledgable. Well done George and Dragon.. I'm looking forward to our stay late 2017 :)

Lovely setting, good parking, cosy, clean and inviting. Staff attentive and efficient. Food let this place down. Ordered Turkey Bap with salad etc.. Turkey cut from a roll complete with bits of string and cling film, salad with wilted leaves, otherwise OK! Management did put it right, when the string was pointed out and did not charge. Bit more care... More

A very busy pub serving good quality meals. Opted for the salmon gougons with mushy peas and chips. They were very tasty. My wife had the soup and a croque monsuier sandwich which was good. Drinks are fine. Maybe book a table if you know you are visiting as we had a short wait to be served.

I was not expecting to have such a delightfully delicious meal at the George and Dragon, but my visit was one which I thoroughly enjoyed! Our protein was beautifully cooked and melt-in-your-mouth good and the desserts were so decadent I wished they would never end. The place to me looks quite charming and full of character, more so because I... More

This was probably the best meal out either of us has ever had ... and we eat out a lot! Very innovative menu and specials. We had three superb courses

. Nowadays, I'm not one for the Pub especially if it's a few miles away from home. I've passed this Pub a few times and my only thought is always how well the exterior is kept and how inviting it looks. Our non-driving son had been invited to a department Xmas dinner there and rather than drop him off to... More

we celebrated a wedding here with lunch on Wednesday last. There were only 8 of us but we had a lovely semi-private table in this lovely place. The staff could not be more attentive and the food and wine were just amazing. We arrived at 1pm and stayed until quite late in the afternoon being quite noisy , when all... More
