The George & Dragon, Long Hanborough
**THE GEORGE AND DRAGON HAS NOW CLOSED FOR BUSINESS BUT WILL RE-OPEN UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT**
The George and Dragon pub and restaurant is located on the A4095 between Witney and Bladon in the village of Long Hanborough. This 17th Century Inn is now the last remaining restaurant in the village, since the Bell pub, located just a few doors down, was closed and sold.
The popular George and Dragon has changed hands recently, with the former owners moving on to run The Lord Kitchener in Curbridge, but over the years the George’ has gained an excellent reputation; the restaurant is always busy at the weekends and very often the large car park which sits at the front of the building is packed with cars, especially on a Sunday.
The George boasts all the qualities of a good country pub; An idyllic village setting, open log fire, patio and rear garden seating areas and quality home cooked food at sensible prices.
The food served at the George and Dragon is mainly British with a few European dishes added to the mix, in addition there are a few classic pub favourites on the menu such as steak and ale pie and prawn cocktail. Traditional Sunday roasts with all the trimmings are available every Sunday afternoon.

We haven’t dined here yet..
This is our local pub, but after the refurbishment the menu prices have been hiked up and although the food is good, it is expensive for what you get. When will pubs learn, repeat trade comes from great food at affordable prices. The new décor is bland and it has lost some of its character and charm.
