Charming family-run pub serving modern British food

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

Built in 1446, ale was first sold here in 1549, but was only licensed under the name of George & Dragon in 1615. This town centre pub oozes charm and character, with its wood floors and open fires, and makes a welcome pit stop when exploring historic Sandwich on foot. Run by two brothers, you can refuel with a pint of well-kept Wantsum, Otter or a guest ale. On the monthly-changing evening menu, you might find mushrooms and spinach on a toasted onion and walnut scone with blue cheese; followed by rump of lamb with goats' cheese and olive mash; or braised venison and boar faggot with blackberries, mash and steamed cabbage. Head outside to the picturesque suntrap courtyard in summer.
