user reviews of the George and Dragon, Bedford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Popped in at about 1 o `clock, not overly busy, but filled up later. Has a nice spacious,modern outdoor area at the back, but as it had been showery, I opted for a nice little alcove, done out with comfortable chairs, cushions and tables, the walls alternatively, biscuit and mint painted, and books on the shelves. They were doing a Deli sarnie/ side and drink deal for £3.95, but I bought a packet of Pipers` Sweet Chilli crisps ( from nearby Biggleswade) and enjoyed a good pint of Abbott , it being a GK boozer.( I think the deal specified IPA rather than Abbott.) Toilets were clean and modern. Young lady behind the bar was friendly and welcoming, and bade me farewell on my exit. Could n`t fault it.

A truly awful place. Ended up here on a Saturday night out with friends. Meat market doesn't even come close to describing it.....

Right next door to Elements club and a cab station.
Great food during the day, big portions and value for money. The yorkshires on a sunday are amazing!
Friendly staff and welcoming landlord.
There's karaoke on tuesdays and it's packed on a friday and saturday night with Pop and RnB classics until 2am!
The massive garden's heated with a pool table and a koi pond, not forgetting the adorable resident jack russell, Olly to give you a smile and a wag on exit.
Definitely worth a stop before heading off to club.

I think it's a Greene King pub, but one of those unbranded ones you get sometimes. It has been refurbished - and thus has probably lost most of its original character - but thankfully nothing too fancy. Had a standard 'pub food' meal and a decent pint of IPA. OK sort of place, but the lack of customers somewhere so close to Bedford's High Street seems worrying.

Great Music at the weekend but no atmosphere at all

What a great pub the George & Dragon is, I was there yesterday lunchtime and I had a wonderful lunchtime drink and half a BBQ chicken, all served by the 3 very friendly ladies behind the bar while I and my partner sat in the enclosed courtyard at the back. Its not everyday that you wander into a strange pub purely by chance and get a great experience like that.

PS. Don't woory about the 'dead' fish at the bottom of the pond, its only sleeping!
