We visited on good Friday for a family meal for 14 of us. We just fitted in the downstairs dining facility . We were really well looked after . Food arrived in good time and was very tasty. All very well done in a nice informal environment. Thank you for a great evening.

Everything you want from a gastro pub. Good beer, nice atmosphere, generous portions but with a surprising subtlety in the flavour, comforting desserts, sensibly priced wine list and a final bill that doesn't spoil the evening.

This is a great place to go out with friends and family. It's noisy but has a very happy atmosphere. Food is good and the waiting staff are excellent. We've been here often and our latest visit was well worth it.

We enjoyed a fine meal here for my birthday. They seem to pull off a real pub vibe with a great range of ales and bottled beers as well as good wines by glass, bottle or good value carafe. My smoked haddock rarebit and salad was perfect followed by decent lamb with sweet potato mash. Mrs P had Mushrooms then... More

Description
Welcome to the George and Dragon, Sandwich. This property dates from 1446 and has been a licensed inn since 1552. It has undergone many changes since it was built, but from the day it was first licensed over four centuries ago the house has never closed. At present brothers Matthew and Mark Philpott have the pleasure of running such a historical building. They deliver an outstanding range of traditional food and drink with a modern twist that caters to the needs of every customer. Head Chef, Mark, creates a new adventurous evening menu every month using as much local produce as possible. They have kept this little gem of a pub oozing with charm and character throughout the years.
