This pub was very near to our rented cottage. Went to the Tuesday quiz night which was really good. The food is tasty and good value for money.

My son and I had a lovely evening meal together at the George and Dragon before the rest of the family joined us the following day. Traditional food - well priced. Excellent quick service. A good place for a hearty family meal.

We enjoyed several evenings at the George & Dragon. Nice surroundings & we were able to watch the tennis in peace. The staff were different each night but all were chatty & offered a special deal on spirits. Would be a great local I'm sure.
