    Good food. Thankfully we wanted a roast so we were happy to have this but was a bit unusual no ‘normal menu’ other than this and some bad snack bits Not a complaint at all just an observation

    Beautifully re-decorated restaurant. Light and airy. Lunchtime menu was limited and the main course a little underwhelming. The dessert saved the day though! Nice cider on draught and both the drinks and food were very reasonably priced. The staff were friendly. A nice experience but what is this current obsession of serving triple cooked chips with everything! Dry, cold, overrated and pretentious. Bring back the hot, crispy, fluffy traditional chips that we all love.

    The George and DragonResponded on June 28, 2022Dear Richie, I am glad to see that you were happy with the dessert, service, pricing and experience. I would like to thank you also for your feedback, I shall take this into consideration with the Head Chef. Rhys Davies General Manager

    Couldn’t fault the food and the service to start our evening. As the evening went in though the restaurant became very loud. This did spoil the end of our night. There were very young children running around unsupervised, they were playing with hoover and switches on walls. Staff couldn’t really control the situation either. Such a shame as was lovely food in nice settings!

    The George and DragonResponded on June 8, 2022Dear ClaireC, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us feedback, I am glad to hear you were happy with the service and food but am disappointed to hear that your night was ruined. Rest assured I will be personally heading this issue up with an aim to resolve this immediately. I hope I will be able to welcome you back soon. Rhys Davies General Manager

    This is the first time we have been for Sunday lunch under the new ownership . We had the traditional Sunday roast which was absolutely delicious , especially the way thar they did the vegetables . , we couldn’t fault it !!! We all had the Banoffee crumble, which was good , but for my taste I found it rather too sweet . We would all. definitely recommend this to anyone who wanted a really fabulous Sunday roast . Can not wait to go back again .

    Had a lovely evening at the G&D. All food was beautifully presented and tasted great. Would highly recommend the Crab starter and the braised beef rib. Staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. We will definitely be back.

    It was a lovely day so we sat outside on the terrace. The lunchtime menu was a little limited but what we had was very nice. The service was very good, attentive and friendly by Belinda and Zuzia. The George and Dragon has been newly refurbished and looks very smart. Beautiful chandelier, cream and pale green decor. One difficulty was the stairs down to the toilets which were very steep. Overall a lovely lunch.

    I think there's a lot of teething problems with the new kitchen. This is the second time I've been, first time for lunch, we had the burger and pork pie which took some time to arrive but tasted nice. We returned for dinner, but that was awful which was a real shame. My husband's pork belly was missing the celeriac fondant and black pudding, the pork was 90% fat and no meat. It looked nothing like the pictures on the Facebook page and an absolutely miniscule portion. My beef shortrib was a decent portion but the horseradish mash was really overpowering so I didn't enjoy it. It also arrived cold. Won't be returning until a few months when they've rectified all the issues.

    My wife and I had a lovely dinner. It was our first visit. Excellent atmosphere and decoration, we had a fast service and all the staff very well dressed polity and attentive. They have an excellent wine list and a wide variety of beers. The food was delicious. Chicken wings an option that you shouldn’t miss. Definitely the best pub-restaurant we have visited. We will be back soon.

    We dined for my friend’s birthday on the restaurant’s first proper night of opening and it was INCREDIBLE! We shared the seafood platter to start and it was some of the best seafood I’ve had in my life, then I had the pork cheek and belly with black pudding crumb and it was EXQUISITE! Faultless, and ridiculously good value at 15.95. We didn’t have dessert as we were too full but the wine is also great and the service is attentive and super friendly. Gorgeous ambiance too. Can’t wait to go back!

    I was looking forward to trying this newly opened pub/restaurant.Very nice efficient staff.The food needs improving we ordered baked cambert serviced in sourdough loaf nice until you come across whole raw cloves of garlic,if the garlic had been roasted before it becomes sweet and delicious then it would have made all the difference.Cauliflower cheese can be delicious if made properly with a good tasty cheese sauce with some mustard and panko breadcrumbs on top ,the dish served was just Cauliflower with a load of cheese melted on top not good.Sorry to be negative but just disappointed!!
