user reviews of the George and Dragon, Wakefield

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

Yes, it is much as its description "Jack's Craft Ale Bar and Diner" would suggest.

The staff are young and friendly. There are several real ales on and I tried a pint of Crafty Jack's. It was a medium-coloured ale with a hint of smokiness perhaps at around 3.9% ABV. There were others from regular breweries too.

The food as expected is American themed, with a good selection of burgers, steak, peri-peri chicken etc. I had the last and it was fine with a half chicken too, quite some portion. It is a refreshing change to have proper table service rather than order-at-the-bar as well.

The Sun in Flockton didn't appear to be doing food on this Sunday and was very quiet. That's a pity as it was rather fine once. Still the staff recommended this place, and also have its menu on display there, so there would appear to be a link.

Now reopened, as "Jack's Craft Ale Bar".

The external appearance is completely changed. It's time that there was something different in the locality.

It would seem to be well worth a try.

There was a blackboard on the pavement outside, as I drove by saying "OPEN".

Well, like the stopped watch that's right twice a day, it would have been right if it had been a Friday lunch time, but as it wasn't the pub was shut.

Pubs like this, which waste hungry and thirsty drivers' time do not endear, any more than the ones with signs which say "food being served NOW", as you drive by at 0300, or any other time they don't feel like doing it.

There's another pub in Flockton which seems open most of the time, and does good food, called The Sun, though. It had real ale too last time I was there.
