The portions were very small, my Duck Shepherd's Pie was only a single layer of meat (less than 1 cm) top with 1cm layer of potato. It did not even fill the shallow dish. My 'caramelised' bananas were no such thing as they were sliced bananas in a caramel/toffee sauce. Most of my five fellow diners left hungry. My husband's scallops were burnt and £11 for three and 2 slices of black pudding! We also sat at a table with the seats 6" higher than the chairs on the opposite side of the table.... (read more)

The The George & Dragon restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. We booked Saturday dinner, and were looking forward to some special fish/seafood - supposed to be this restaurant's speciality. My husband's starter - fishcakes, were more potato than fish, and very bland. My baked figs with goats cheese and prosciutto was rather oily, but tasty. I ordered the special - sole fillets with scallops. For 20 pounds, I would have expected some effort being put into the presentation! The fish... (read more)

Living locally we have visited the G&D a number of times for Sunday lunch which is consistently of exceptional quality. Atmosphere is relaxed and informal whilst the food and wine would grace the most sophisticated of London eateries without being pretentious or over complex.
On the 6th of December 2008 the G&D hosted a party for 40 guests for my wifes 40th Birthday, organising a beautifully appointed and lighted (and heated!) marquee and providing us with a fabulous feast from their... (read more)

I do not know how The George and Dragon is recommended by the Michelin guide.....
Dinner service 10/09/08
My dover sole was complete with uncooked entails
The pin bones were also still intact and the fish was swimming in a oily butter.
My wife's assiette of fish was .... well not worth the money and the tuna looked grey - resembling canned tuna.
Very bad experience - no returning for us.

only negative was toilets
food excellent i had crayfish salad which was fine, main course roasted monkfish which was done to perfection with generous portions; dessert was an always irresistable bread and butter pudding which did not disapoint.
two guests had the fixed price menu which was brilliant value,however the bill showed only one resulting in an overcharge of about ... (read more)

We recently ate at The George and Dragon based on positive reviews from other guides.
For a venue which charges such at this level (most starters from £8.50 & main courses about £16) we expected a better level of service & presentation than was actually delivered.
We skipped starter & chose mains of Monkfish in Parma ham & a lamb stew. The restaurant was completely empty apart from us & these arrived very promptly along with Fresh vegetables.
The lack of other customers meant there was no... (read more)

The George and Dragon in Rowde is a very busy restaurant at lunch time, which is when I visited.
Good and reasonably priced table de'hote, and a considerable array of fresh fish.
Haddock and fried egg and bacon was superb - so said my three chums, and my veal kidneys really pushed the right button.
No language problems, although a slight Wiltshire twang was noticed from customers at the bar. First class! (read more)
