Welcoming, since 1808


Dating from the mid 1700’s, and originally a farmhouse, the George and Dragon has officially been a pub since 1808. (Although its owners probably brewed ale long before then.) It is grade two listed, has a fascinating history, and has been described as ‘East Hampshire’s finest pub.’

‘NEVER GIVE IN.’

Sir Winston Churchill was a trustee of the George and Dragon. From him we take our motto ‘never give in.’ It drives our passion for the George and Dragon every day.

THE DAMBUSTERS

After World War Two, the George and Dragon was owned by Flt Lt Charles Pain, who had participated in the Dambusters raids using the ‘bouncing bomb.’

TEN ‘COUNTRY COTTAGE’  BEDROOMS

Over more recent years the George and Dragon’s traditional brick barns and skittle alley have been converted into charming, peaceful bedrooms. Each with their own front door they’re ‘your own little country cottage.’

THE BEST OF BRITISH MENU

Burgers. Sunday Roasts. Delicious fish specials. Vegan options. Puddings to indulge in. Our chefs use locally sourced organic ingredients whenever possible. Open every day for lunch and dinner. Served with passion and pride.
