The George and Dragon Reviews
It's not a LGBT pub anymore, but it's a quiet pub with fantastic food and cheap booze. The music is very discoey, and it's a great place to have a drink at prior to going out clubbing in... more »
I stopped on this bar with friends and what a surprise... really good service, and really funny and friendly people...GO! more »
We arrived at 10pm and we were the only people there (apart from staff too)! Some people did dribble in around 11pm but in total there was no more than 12 people in the place which was disappointing. We ordered drinks and wow! Mega expensive! 3 vodka cokes for £21.60, the west end is cheaper! The show was half hour late and she was a very good singer. Door staff were really friendly and had a good laugh with them as to are the staff behind the bar. Good pool table but the cues are in terrible condition so don’t waste your money playing, no chalk and one of the two cues was broken. I think either lower the prices so it’s inline with other local pubs and/or extend happy hour which will hopefully attract customers in earlier.
It's a shame because the food was good and the lady serving was great. The £85 fine that came through the door was good too.... We had a booking for 9 for 6:30 and me and another were running late so didn't get there till 7:30. Quickly read the top of the sign which said something like for pub users only, thought great I can park here and went in. So fast forward to getting the fine I lodged an appeal but as we had a tab and I paid in cash didn't get a receipt or have a bank statement to prove was there. Thought ok, I'll ring the pub and the guy who answered basically said there's 4 signs and you should have read them can't and won't help. That's fine it's my fault I didn't read the whole sign due to running late but the attitude from the guy was by far anything helpful. Will not be going back there which truly is a shame and the other 7 people won't be either.
