About
Welcome to The George & Dragon Inn, Sandwich. This property dates from 1446 and has been a licensed inn since 1552. It has undergone many changes since it was built, but from the day it was first licensed over four centuries ago the house has never closed. At present business partners Sarah Boxall and Stephen Wren have the pleasure of running this historical inn. They deliver an outstanding range of traditional food and drink with a modern twist that caters to the needs of every customer. Head Chef Aaron and his team (Marc and Dan) create a new adventurous evening menu every fortnight using as much local produce as possible. Sarah and Stephen have kept this little gem of a pub oozing with charm

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.

Just been to George & Dragon this weekend after visiting 5 months ago (which was very good). A bit disappointed especially as we had recommended to our friends. Firstly quite cold in the restaurant. Didn't feel that organised and not very attentive. Food was ok,...burgers a bit burnt around the outside, pie was nice, tagliatelle was oily and luke warm as had been sitting waiting to get served. Toilets a bit uncared for. Shame as all-in all a bit disappointed, need to get back to higher standards.More

Food is absolutely amazing! Service was slow and the 2 servers didn't seem to be working well together and it was a long wait for drinks. After asking for the bill and waiting half an hour we made our way to the front to pay...and got a short shift by the waitress as she was "busy" As I said the food is fantastic but the service with a smile needs some work.More

Firstly, this is a 15th century pub and is beautiful inside. We have had lunch and drinks in here before but never dinner. There were 8 of us, 4 couples, and we all had 3 courses. Every course was lovely, I had the scotch egg...which had lovely runny yolk, followed by cod and chips which was MASSIVE ! The batter was crispy and the skin on fried perfectly cooked. The pub offers great value for money, for 3 courses and 1 drink each we paid about £35 each, the staff were excellent, special mention to Poppy who was our server. A lovely evening, thank you very muchMore

Booked for a Sunday lunch with a group of friends. Food was spot on, plenty of meat and veg, (beef was fantastic) served with a huge boat of gravy. Service was friendly, and the staff were really busy but still attentive. We had a great...table "downstairs", which was like a private dining room. Dog friendly and good selection of beers.More

Looking for local cuisine I chose the George and Dragon and couldn’t have done better. Different options from the staple burgers etc and the mussel and bacon chowder washed down with a pint of cider was fantastic.

The food was just okay. The fish and chips really should be just that. Brown chips with skins on that taste very sweet really dont compliment beer battered cod. Just give normal everyday chips...theyre always a winner. When we asked for the wine list the...laminated A4 sheet really didnt need to glide across the table!!! A simple hand to hand would have been suffice. The service was a tad rushed during our evening meal. We were still finishing up when a staff member sat at the next table sorting out till receipts. Abit off putting. We always tip good service. We didn't tip at the George & Dragon.More

Initial welcome was fairly warm. I had requested a particular table but no mention was made of this and another family were already seated there. The waitress was attentive before and during meal. The food was quite basic but very good value. Vegetables as a...side would have been welcome. Our food was delivered to us very quickly which was a plus. The bill was given to us before we asked for it, which we thought a bit rude. However, our main problem was before we were ready to go, the waitress stacked all the chairs onto the tables around us. It made us feel really unwelcome and uncomfortable. I have never experienced this before, anywhere! The pub closes at 11pm and this was a while before 10pmMore
