“Brilliant pub”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

Went to Tanzania in May for a 2 week stay and whilst there came across a British pub. What a brilliant find. Food and service fantastic. Went back several times during our stay and tried various things on the menu. nothing disappointed. Hosts were really welcoming and recognised us when we returned, it almost became our second home. I would recommend this pub to anyone visiting, wanting awesome atmosphere, fabulous food, superb service and terrific tunes.

“Best pub in Tanzania”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

Easily the best pub in Tanzania and probably East Africa, for an ex pat or local the pub has everything, great variety of drinks, draft kilimanjaro is a must, food quality is good, service is excellent which is rare for Tanzania. Always a warm welcome from Sue, Adam and Sam, its a pleasure to have this pub in Dar Es Salaam, would recommend to any new comer to Tanzania

“Got the lot.”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Great place to drink, eat, watch sports and socialise with a cosmopolitan crowd.
Shame about the landlady though (he he only joking Sue)!!
Gets a tad crowded at weekend but so do most good places.

“British pub in Dar?”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

I've never been to an english pub, but I still think this is more or less just how an english pub is. They serve easy, but good food. They have a good variety of drinks.
Only complain is that it took forever to get a Mojito and that they allow indoor-smoking. I would like to go there again, a nice place for friends to hang out.

“Pub Grub”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 via mobile

I guess it's quite a unique thing for Dar to have such an authentic English pub, but once you get over the novelty you will realize that the George & Dragon is exactly that. A place where ex-pats can go to feel the comforting warmth of an authentic ale and pub grub.

I found the service to to very brisk and attentive, and the food was very much like the kind you'd find in any of the 'better' pubs in the UK (which is a good thing) - and there's a battered Mars Bar on the menu for heavens sake.

Overall, if you're in the Oyster Bay Area, want have a couple of drinks and line your stomach before a big night out, you won't be disappointed! Just don't expect ocean views and trendy crowds...
