I took my boyfriend to stay here for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year. This little pub is absolutely gorgeous, it has so much character and is what a old english pub should be like, very cosy. We stayed in room 3 with the freestanding bath, the bed was so comfortable. We ate both nights there surrounded by twinkly candles and log fire, food was delicious as was the wine. I think the thing that stood out for us was the service, the owners are really lovely and made us feel very welcome, as if we were friends. I would definitely stay there again. I think the only negative point would be that the room wasn't cleaned during the day i.e. dirty glasses taken away but that really is a tiny point.

We had a great welcome at the G & D - and there was a very high standard of service throughout.
We stayed in Room 1 - which is ensuite. Beutiffully and comfortably furnished.
Food was fantastic - with excellent attention to detail - we shall return.!
We walked to the famous Caen Hill locks from the pub- and met some very friendly villagers on the way!

We are now thinking about when we can go again.

The pub is on the main road - so you are likely to hear some traffic noise.

Our room was well-appointed with crisp white linens and a bathroom stocked with Cowshed products – our first experience with this line which we thoroughly enjoyed. It took a few minutes to get used to the geometry of the room, which, in keeping with its four hundred years of age, had few right angles, but this added to the charm. The restaurant is known locally for seafood that arrives fresh daily. We had a great dinner there.

The landlords were all extremely helpful and friendly and the place is relaxed. One caution: the pub is on a moderately busy road and the rooms are (obviously) over a working pub / restaurant both of which generated a bit of noise. We didn’t find this to affect our stay. We liked the George & Dragon a lot.

Finally, note that there are two George & Dragons close to Devizes. This one is in Rowde, a village a mile or two northwest of town.

Our stay at the George and Dragon for our 1st anniversary was superb. The owners were very accomodating. We had everything we needed provided for us. The rooms are stylish/funky and the food there is super. There is now no better place to stay in Rowde!! Definitely worth a visit.

I decided to take my Partner away for his Birthday, and had been to The G+D for dinner previousley, where i had been informed that they were going to be adding a B+B to there upstairs area, so decided to book as i had always been more than happy with my visits.
The rooms are amazing! To the standard of any hotel that i have stayed in anywhere in the world, the Restuarant has also had a slight refurbishment, that adds a really nice personal touch! The food as usual was amazing, as was the service!

I would recomend the G+D to anybody that wants amazing food, great service and Beautiful rooms.

We had an amazing Stay!

Thank you to everyone at the G+D!

We booked the George and Dragon at the last minute and we were very impressed with their helpfulness and efficiency with directions, local sights to see, etc. Upon arrival we were taken to our very well appointed rooms. These guys are ex-Soho House so when it comes to taste in decor, products and finishes they know their stuff without detracting from the character of the building.

We headed on down to the dining room at 8pm and proceeded to have a very leisurely dinner. The service was spot on and most importantly the food was excellent. Given they receive fresh orders of fish and seafood from Cornwall, we decided to order mainly this and we weren't disappointed. The monk fish was great, crab risotto was delicious as were the desserts.

We had a peaceful sleep and then woke up to a very decent full English breakfast and the papers the next day. A very pleasant night away.
