    We often go to The George and Dragon, there is a superb menu. The food is always good, tasty and value for money (great chef). The staff are very friendly and accommodating. It's a beautiful setting inside and out, with a fabulous beer garden.

    Can't fault the table service, but didn't think the food was as good as last time we came. Still very nice, but burger was a bit overcooked and dry for my taste.

    Food was good value for money and decent portion sizes. I had the panko deep fried Brie with Chilli sauce to start, main was a fish finger wrap with skinny fries with a side salad. They ran out of vanilla ice cream and didn't realise until I ordered my desert!?🤔. Offered a variaty of others that didn't really go with a chocolate brownie sundae but I chose cherry - was thinking black forest gateau🙃. Overall I would defo recommend and I will defo be back Thanks George and the Dragon 🙂

    Fries were stone cold & inedible. Cheese cake was nice
    The George and DragonResponded on 27 February 2024
    Good evening Gilly, glad you liked our homemade cheese cake. Yes we are quite confused as the manager checked back and was greeted with lovely responses, only to be told about the fries after payment. Sorry you felt like you couldnt mention this at the time.

    Our visit didn’t start well as before we had even looked at the menu we were told in no uncertain terms that we would need to vacate our table after an hour an a half. We then felt rushed throughout the whole meal. We had not seen our relatives for a while and would have liked a leisurely lunch without having to move to the bar later . My husband is recovering from a knee operation and he found the stairs to the toilet very steep and the lack of lighting was dangerous. The food was very average except for the beef and lamb both of which were very tough, overcooked and cut much too thickly. We left after our desserts to have coffee elsewhere which was not our original plan.
    The George and DragonResponded on 27 February 2024
    Dear Shelagh, we are sorry to hear about the discomfort your husband experienced using our stairs, unfortunately being a listed building we are very limited as to what we can change, and sorry to say they are rather steep. I have spoken to the team on shift that day and there was an overbooking, a mistake on our part, thank you so much for being understanding and moving into the bar to finish off with coffee, I wish they had given them to you complimentary as you kindly moved into the bar to help us. Im sorry you were not able to bring the roast beef and lamb to our attention, this would have been replaced for you straight away. Please feel free to email me at welcome@ganddgraveley.co.uk in the hope of improving your next visit. Kind regards Jade. The George & Dragon Graveley, Hitchin

    Perfect for eating out. You could have a big meal or go for the lunch time menu. Great choice and good value. Have been quite a few times and will definitely go again.
