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.

Drinks took too long. Carrots were not peeled and gritty on my butternut squash Wellington dish. Roast potatoes were undercooked and stodgy that accompanied the roast dinner. Waitstaff were untrained and didn’t know their job. I have been coming to you for 10 years but since change of ownership things have gone mightily downhill. I desperately hope for improvement.

Really lovely pub with friendly staff, good beer and excellent food. The roast lunch was outstanding and we always feel welcome (and that includes our dog :-))

Wonderful pub in a lovely setting. The upstairs area is unique and amazing. The food is fantastic, we shared the shoulder of lamb and there was enough for 4. Great value, great food and lovely staff (Just wish we had room for pudding).

What a beautiful pub to catch up with old friends over Sunday lunch. We were met at the door and showed to a lovely table in 'The Buttery'. Very laid back, friendly staff. Great food with decent portions (I ended up with a doggy bag). Even though it was our first visit we felt very welcome – will definitely be back.

Pleasant first visit, initially service ok but as ir got busier the service suffered. Too be honest the roast are over priced for what you get, albeit the food was nice.

We came here years ago and the experience was very good. This time we felt the lunch menu was uninteresting and the restaurant was dark and gloomy.

We was given the wrong menu. Which made ordering food and the bill at the end very confusing.

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.

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.

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.

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.
