Our stay at the George and Dragon Inn was a delight. The service in the Restaraunt was good and the locally sourced food was very tasty. A good selection of beers and cider in the bar and very helpful barman rounded off our evening perfectly....More

Lovely beef served either pink or cooked through and great homemade Yorkshire pud. But veg was just half a carrot and some roasted beetroot (I hate beetroot). Definitely more vegetables needed - which would have given it a 5 star review.More

We stopped for lunch on our way up to Scotland. We all enjoyed our food very much. The beef and ale cottage pie was the best I have eaten. My husband had red trout which was beautifully cooked and had lots of flavour
