Found this place on TA and were not disappointed. Service was excellent and food all home cooked. Perfectly toddler friendly and outstanding atmosphere. Thoroughly recommended!

Log fires, mulled cider, homemade chips, good ales, what more could you ask for? A lovely little pub with cosy corners and log fires! Brilliant choice on menu served quickly and freshly. We've always had a good meal here and have done again this week!...More

A traditional country pub, in a idyllic surrounding. Set in the peaceful village of Chacombe, the George and Dragon is only 1 mile from junction 11 of the M40. The George and dragon is the perfect place for all occasions, whether it be for entertaining corporate lunches during the day, cosy dinners, family get togethers or a drink with your friends. The pub dates back to the 17th century and still has original beams and fire places. During an extension 20 years ago a hidden well was discovered, which has long become a big attraction of the pub, along with the unique brass bar. There is a large patio area which can seat up to 40 people during the long and thirsty summer months.
