The George and Dragon is an 18th-century coaching inn located just south of Penrith, ideally located for the Lakes and surrounding areas. The restored property reflects its Georgian heritage and retains many original features and materials. The comfortable bedrooms are well appointed and cater well for the needs of the modern guest. The bar is warm and welcoming with several real ales on offer. The award-winning dishes use mainly local produce, much of which comes from the owners' estate. The hearty breakfast will provide a great start to the day.
