This will be a difficult review to write because quite a few things happened. First thing the young gentleman who looked after us was very attentive , could not fault him at all. The lunch when it came was two lamb rumps and two ham egg and chips. My husband and friend both said their lamb was delicious. Her husband... More

Ate with friends on Easter Sunday with four kids. It truly was the best Sunday lunch we've had for a very long time. The service was brilliant and the team were very accommodating. We will be back and can't wait to have the half chicken roast again!

We visited the George & Dragon in Chacombe for the first time Thursday 6th April and we were not disappointed! Service, quality of food and a good range of beer and wines ( in particular Hey Malbec! ) were all bang on! Can't wait to try the Chateaubriand next time! Keep up the good work!

Went to the George for lunch with a friend. First time we'd visited this year. The pub is very friendly and welcoming with old world charm, an excellent choice of food and drink and very good service. Good value, quick service and great food. More than happy to recommend. We will be back soon. Thank you :-)

Went on a Tuesday night. Very quiet. We have been there before when the new publicans took it over and found the prices reasonable, steaks around £11. We went back last night, they have jacked the prices on their steaks to over £20 now, which is completely unreasonable. Ordered ham, eggs and chips my partner had a hamburger. My dinner... More

Good afternoon pamdsc1 Firstly I'd like to say that I have placed a query with TripAdvisor because I'm not sure if this review is for the correct pub. However, if it is I shall comment on the review. We are new publicans that took over The George & Dragon at the beginning of January, however we have never sold a... More

Booked a table here for Sunday Lunch, we sat in the room behind the bar with a nice view out to the green and the village. Having sampled their food at their previous pub was soooo looking forward to it. As usual they did not disappoint. We had the Sunday Roast which was superb. Great staff too, very welcoming and...

I went to the George and dragon for the first time last night with my sister. The atmosphere was rally friendly and cosy. Especially with the log burners. It was an evening to meet the new land lords who were really lovely. There was a live band too. The food was delicious. I will definitely be going again.

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.
