I go here quite a lot. The Timothy Taylor's Landlord bitter is a real treat, and worth a try. However, the great thing about the pub (and all my family love it also - last ate here 20th November) are the homemade pies - real pastry all around and stuffed with meat etc - fantastic. Does get quiet at times as the previous correspondent says - tends to get busier 5 - 7pm and after 8:30pm !!!

Harveys has always been excellent and still is, but something's changed for the worst here, the recent sterile makeover certainly hasn't helped, and maybe the Queens Head being on the up hasn't helped either - I do go in at quiet times 7pm-8:30 weekdays but its never been this dead - still giving it a 6 because good beer is sadly a rarity these days (mind you with low numbers that's bound to suffer soon) ...

We visited the George & Dragon for Sunday lunch today (albeit on Bank Holiday Monday), as part of a ramble including a visit to Downe House.

The initial impression was positive, with low wooden beams and a traditional interior. They had a standard range of cask ales, including Harvey's, Timothy Taylor, London Pride and Young's Bitter. The beer was fine.

However, the food was a very poor. The meat in my Sunday roast was very strange: paper thin and very similar to sliced luncheon meat. My wife ordered a gammon baguette but received a roll with sliced luncheon ham and some limp leaves. When we asked the waitress about this, the reply was "But that is gammon". Where do you even begin with that?

In summary, ok beer, middling atmosphere, terrible food. Very disappointed with an 18 outlay for a beer, a tea and terrible grub.

we quite often visit the george with my family wife and 2 children who enjoy the relaxed atmosphere good food and friendly staff and above all good beer for me with harveys,london pride,bass and tim taylors landlord oh they also do lager aswell. The pub still has low ceilings beams and an open fire in winter as for the free sausages they went over 20 years as did the wall separating the bar which made the pub more spacious. Overall this pub is worth a visit on a bus route from bromley and orpington and also near Downe house and Xmas tree farm, there is a quiz night every sunday night and other entertainment at various times .
