user reviews of the George and Dragon, Barnsley

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

I waited and waited for this pub to open. Signs on the outside say it is under new management. Apparently it was bought by somebody who has failed to re-open it. So, I'm not sure if the new management was the old management or whether the new management have pulled a fast one and have other uses in mind for it. Instead, head to the Commercial just up the road. I had a nice Abbeydale Moonshine in there.

This pub has signs showing that it is for sale - I hope that someone gets it soon and makes a go of it. Didn't see George or a dragon, only a sourpuss in a surprisingly empty pub for a Saturday night. Only one ale - Greene king IPA.

Small friendly local, decptively close to the town centre but feeling more like it was a part of the small 70's-build estate that it sits at the edge of. The interior is pure late 70's posh pub refit (even the emergency exit signs are ancient), with padded settles along pretty much every wall as well sepia tinged photos of old Barnsley. There's a TV in the lounge corner (showing the horse racing on my visit) plus a traditional (and rare) Yorkshire dartboard (no outer bull or treble) and pool table in a little room up a couple of steps to the left of the bar which is covered in mirrored brewania. There were 3 ales on - Black Sheep, John Smiths and Jennings served in lined glasses. Both my Jennings and John Smiths (I don't see it much down South!) were well-kept and went down well. The landlord was a friendly old fellow. Also worth noting is availability of pickled cockles and mussels - you don't see that much any more.

A solid local which does the preverbial 'what it says on the tin'. Worth the short walk from town. A tip when leaving the pub - take a left at it's main entrance and you quickly come across a nice little park. Handy for sit down and a pie in the sunshine, I discovered!
