About The George & Dragon
The George & Dragon in Speldhurst is a traditional 13th Century Inn with roaring log fires and dramatic oak beams. In May 2017 Chris Cozens took over the pub with the aim to provide a pub that not only sold local bitters and good wines, but local, seasonal food simply cooked and using the bounty of produce that surrounded them in the heart of Kent. It was after a long lunch in a small village near Urbino, Italy where what was on the plate in front of them came from the surrounding fields, that the idea of producing a restaurant that sourced everything (within reason!) in a 30 mile radius was born.
Excellent Sunday lunch
We were delighted with our experience. The food was excellent and made a family meal very special.
We was given the wrong menu. Which made ordering food and the bill at the end very confusing.
excellent meal and service
Great Sunday lunch again. Only disappointment is the lamb wasn’t on the menu, so definitely have to go back! Only black mark is that the staff don’t get tips direct. Love this place, good food, lovely staff and very relaxing atmosphere.
Fabulous lunch thanks
I've been here on a number of occasions, and previously, my experiences have been good. However, last night was in all honesty not a great experience. Service was patchy at best - a long wait for our drinks and the main was course delivered well ahead of the cutlery, so the meal was less than hot when eaten. Whilst my dinner partner's main course of duck breast was good, my fish, which I chose because I wanted a relatively light main course, was so drowned in butter, literally half an inch in the bottom of the bowl, that the plan was rather spoilt and consequently, I only managed to eat half the meal, which was rather a disappointment. The However, as I've already said, this is the first disappointing experience out of six visits.
A lovely meal and experience
Please see my review in trip advisor “ is this the worst pub in Kent”. My experience at this pub was horrendous and I expected an apology for the appalling service. I strongly recommend people avoiding this place.
Great steak, cosy atmosphere. Some inventive vegetarian options.
The service was unfortunately rather sullen and unwelcoming
Absolutely delicious Sunday roast, best we've had for ages. The slow roast belly of pork was divine and lots of perfectly cooked vegetables. Can't recommend it highly enough.
Fantastic Sunday lunch. Thank you
Delicious Sunday roast and speedy service too. Great waiting staff.
went on Sunday for the roast dinner, online had an option of 4 different meats. when we got there, we were surprised to find either an option of beef or pork. we opted for 2 beef, which were both to the chefs credit, very good. I think we may have gone on a bad day on the staffing front as all except one of the waitresses seemed very inexperienced and we were kept waiting 30 mins for out drink order (only getting them when we went to the bar ourselves) in summary, the limited menu was good. the service and atmosphere was poor
Food was delicious but service was very slow. To have run out of roasts at 2pm was very disappointing and we also had to change a drinks order half an hour after ordering as the original ale ordered had also run out
Had lovely Sunday lunch and stafff and food fabulous .... quite amazed at how many other customers were reading papers And not talking ... hence we felt very loud which was bit of a shame .... bit fabulous food and service
Excellent food and setting. Top marks for staff being ever so welcoming and attentive.
Great food and lovely pub, used to visit a lot years ago! Not so happy that service is added automatically especially because we ordered drinks at the bar and paid at the bar ie not complete table service as you would have in a restaurant. I would have paid a tip but in cash and an amount of my choice
Great food and generous amount. Service was a little slow although staff were lovely
Although we enjoyed ourselves I object to hiding the gratuity in small type while showing the final amount in larger bold type. Don't you have faith in yourselves? We would have left more!!
as always great service and delicious food, we love eating here.
Only reason for the 4 stars was that it was a quiet evening with few customers so slightly lacking atmosphere.
Food was absolutely delicious. Have already recommended for family to visit, service was impeccable. Children's roast a little pricey. It other than that, brilliant.
Beautiful location and venue and the food was superb. We’ll definitely be back and won’t hesitate to recommend.
