Review on The George and Dragon
The George and Dragon, a delightful sixteenth century coaching inn has been welcoming visitors since the time of King Henry VIII, located in the pretty Kent village of Chipstead a short drive from the M25. Inside it has been lovingly restored by owner Benjamin James and displays all its original charms, with heavy oak beams, solid furnishings and roaring log fire. Outside there is a contemporary patio ideal for al fresco dining during the summer months.
The focus is on high quality ingredients and the kitchen has built up a special relationship with local farmers and artisan producers, for their daily changing menu which reflects what is available locally and seasonally. Meat is free range or organic, vegetables are sourced from the surrounding counties and sustainable fish comes from boats off the south east coast, following marine stewardship guidelines.
Typically you might find slow cooked spicy sardines, crusty bread and saffron humous amongst the starters, followed by a main course of whole partridge, potato rosti, English curly kale and juniper berry jus or pan fried bream, new potatoes and broccoli gratin. There are delicious desserts to finish with a chocolate fudge pudding and pistachio ice cream or forest fruit cheesecake with fresh cream.
The food is matched by a thoughtfully chosen wine list as well as an excellent range of cash ales, including their popular 'George's Marvellous Medicine'.
