One day i'm going to go in there and it's going to be busy..... but then again maybe not. Nothing wrong with the place or the beer (apart from the price, didn't like £1.95 for a 1/2 of Old Timer), but it's always quiet.

We stayed at the George and Dragon in the cosy bedrooms that they have on offer - lovely digs for a great pub - great food also (and if you stay you get an awesome fry up), has a great local feel to it. Beers are also good, regional ciders and ales on offer which makes it all the worth visiting.

Been a few times this year by myself and with family. Always well looked after. Locals friendly and happy to chat over a beer at bar. Staff really attentive and landlady really patient (especially with my kids) they can be a handful. Food first class and excellent value.
Have recommended to family and friends who have since stayed over in the B&B rooms and all been really pleased with hospitality and service.

Comment of trevorb was right but that was under (shortlived) management. New management has made a great difference. We went on a Friday night and enjoyed good home cooked food (I had lasagne, my wife a beef casserole) and friendly, chatty bar staff. We were visitors to the area and were made very welcome. They stock a good organic bottled cider and several well kept beers. The 6x was especially good. The draft scrumpy was good too. We also went on Sunday night and were greeted like old friends. They don't serve food after 6 on a Sunday (although did go out of their way to find something delicious for us when we got there at 6.30).

Just awful. Nothing more to say, have to agree with everything said by DTMaster.

Reminded me of a dirty, cheap greasy spoon cafe!!!!!

I went to the George and Dragon in Potterne a couple of sundays ago and had a lovely meal in comfortable, warm surroundings. You could tell all the food was homemade and also that all the staff wanted to make sure you had the best visit possible from pouring your pint the right way to making you feel welcome in general.

With the number of country pubs dwindling, it was such a pleasure to find one that was so inviting.

Loved the pool table and darts (not many pubs seem to have those these days either) and the log fire was a nice finishing touch.

Thanks so much for such a lovely meal and look forward to seeing you soon!

I visited this pub on many occassions over the last 3 years. Jules and Jo were great hosts and the food and beer had always been excellent. Unfortunately they have recently left and I decided to give the new licensees a go. We went for Sunday lunch, what a mistake. The meat was cheap and tough, the potatoes deep fried not roasted and it came with a mountain of soggy veg and instant gravy, not the standard we had become acustomed too here. As they were new we gave them a second chance and went for an evening meal this weekend. Unfortunately the food has gottem worse. The menu consists of very little except pies and these were the worst I have ever tasted, dry, tough and burnt. The landlady is rude, aggressive and the language and atmosphere was terrible.

Never ever visit this pub unless you want food poisoning, bad language and a mouth full of abuse. Such a shame as this was once a fantastic pub and restaurant.

Nice pub serving local Devizes beer. Visited this pub twice while camping locally - first night had a meal (very good food), second night spent the evening in the pub and left at kicking out time after a few too many pints!

Definately well worth calling in if you're passing through - despite the steep steps at the entrance which can prove a challenge to navigate after an evening of drinking!
