Our wedding 06-08-22

Had the best experience with George and Dragon when planning our wedding. We had regular meetings with the owner Charlie who was great at explaining everything. I am very new to the area and Charlie was able to point me in the right direction for suppliers. He recommended the amazing Florist Claire who was able to do my flowers just the way I wanted. He also recommended the best DJ ever Greg. All my friends and Family loved how great he was.

The food was amazing and very filling. The George and Dragon make sure the food is at the best quality and very generous. The buffet looked amazing and there was plenty off food for the evening. You do get alot for your money!

The bridal suite is stunning and is a great place to get ready for the day and a nice place to unwind at the end of the night.

Honestly could not recommend this place enough. I was happy from beginning to end.

Thank you to the Goerge and Dragon for making our special day memorable.

They were great from the start,working around our budget to give us the best day that we will never forget.
The food was the highlight for us, delicious 3 course meal, served with complementary toasting drinks, and also the staff were so kind and helpful.
Thankyou again, George and dragon❤️

Fantastic venue.

From our first meeting with Charlie at the George and Dragon hotel, we knew we had found our venue.
Charlie was so accomodating and worked with our budget to provide us with the most spectacular day, nothing was too much trouble.
We met several times to go over details and ensure everything was perfect for the day.
We had a giant menu to select from, selecting three options of starters, Mains and desserts, this then allowed our guests to pick what they'd like. Charlie and team also accommodated for children wonderfully.
The room we married in was transformed into such a beautiful room (see photos!) And the gardens allowed for wonderful photography.
We had the best day and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.
Thank you!
Mr & Mrs Nethercott
