Good vibes about this place from the road and entering. The building is historic and a well-known local landmark (I say this as an Essex resident from the other side of the county). Ordered two crab and crayfish brioche sandwiches and fries for lunch. They...were okay, but the overall presentation was quite basic and underwhelming. Left underwhelmed. It wasn't busy, so I feel the staff could have been more attentive.More

Sometimes you just get a feeling that something is going to be great, i had looked at the menus online and was so very excited about visiting this pub for my friends birthday this evening, on route i got notified that they may be missing...some items which although some could see as frustrating it was nice to be warned, when we arrived James showed us to our table, apologized for two dishes being omitted and explained George would be looking after us. Georges service was excellent, we thoroughly enjoyed our pizzas and pasta. overall i would highly reccomed the George and dragon to anyone in the area, thank you once againMore

Beautiful food, amazing service from Becky, we thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend. Beautiful starters and our mains were so perfectly cooked, if we weren’t so stuffed we definitely would have had dessert lol

Where do I start, from FANTASTIC food to being so amazing and accommodating to our party of 6 needs was just above and beyond. Timothy is a HUGE credit to your establishment as are his staff, polite, interactive and so so welcoming. It was my...husbands birthday which again they accommodated with not only the seating area and fantastic customer care but also bringing the cake out and getting some staff together to participate in the cake ceremonial song. Again, Tim and his team are a true credit to your establishment. It's the tiny things that also make it and they certainly didn't hold back. It was the first time we ate at your establiment and we loved our visit so much we will 100% be back again very soon . Thank you again to Tim and his team you made my husbands evening ❤More

A lovely pub, went there for a quiet drink with a friend and had a cracking time! Good wine list which I overindulged on and the waitress there, Ella, was really nice even though she was dealing with a couple of rowdy lads on the...red wine!More

Met some family here today, most of us opted for the fish and chips and one had the fillet steak. The fish was lovely, generous portion and the chips were delicious, the fillet steak was cooked to perfection and very tender. Our waiter George was...very helpful and friendly. We will definitely be backMore

Yes, very. But you obviously can't have them in the restaurant. However, the exact same menu is available in the bar and if you want to order a child's dinner for your dog, they don't mind at all :)
