The perfect place to watch the game (especially soccer), play a game of pool or grab a craft beer and a bite. Friendly service and crowd plus outdoor seating seal the deal.
If you're a hardcore soccer fan (or just enjoy a nice cold 20 oz. pint) this is the place for you. When soccer is not on the screens surrounding this good ol' English pub there are plenty of other flights of fancy to keep you occupied - like free pool Monday.
What a neighborhood pub should be – just moved to Fremont and I love this pub! Friendly faces, good atmosphere, a crowd that mingles rather than sticking to their own tables. The staff treats you like and old friend by your second visit. Weeknights here are the best.
Bartenders are rude – I went into the George and Dragon recently. I also found that it took forever to get a drink and the bartenders were exceptionally rude. Not just to me but also to a few other customers. I won't be going in there again. ALSO: In regards to one review, I think it's ridiculous to have to buy a bartender a shot just to get them out of a bad mood.
You're Missing the Point... – As an English Bird, I have to say you're all missing the point. This is a BRITISH Pub, it's gonna be smoky and full of yobs, this is what an English pub is like, just think of it as a theme bar. Although the food is below average I have always found that the staff are really friendly and if they're in a bad mood, get them a shot, they'll soon get over it.
Far from reminding me why I left England this place believe it or not makes me feel a little homesick, the decor may not be that nice but it feels like an English Pub which I guess is the point, I Love this place.
STAFF STINKS! – Owners are cool but their rude staff is totally undesirable. I do not recommend going to the George and Dragon unless you are eager to be ignored when you need a drink. Most of the bartenders (especially those who have been working there awhile) are bitter and rude. Also (as a side note) make sure you know what you are paying for, because sometimes the bartenders make "mistakes" on your tab. Total jerks.
Nice Pub – The George & the Dragon is a nice English pub. They have a really good selection of beers on tap and the bartender was very nice and helpful. The one real negative is that the bar can get really busy when there's a football (soccer to some people) game on. Parking can be a challenge sometimes as well.
Footie paradise -- nice staff – I am stunned by some of the "bad service" comments I have seen here. Not only are all the staff right proper blokes, but I have personally observed that they are nice to everyone, patient with the drunks at 9am (including me on a game morning), and love to talk about football. Aside from some of my soccer teammates, i know of no other place to go have a good chat about whay Man U's defesne is collapsing, over a cold pint of Boddie's. The food is excellent -- not Gordon Ramsay, by any means -- and the simple stuff is best: beans on toast, bacon baps, sausage butties, etc. And they never forget to bring the HP sauce! :-)
Come to the George and enjoy yourself with great beer and food, fun staff and a Manchester United victory on telly.
Bloody lousy! – "George & Dragon" pub is just another listless English drinking hangout. Lonley crowds hang onto the bar during the week with an occassional lively weekend atmosphere.
So if you into the old English style approach of smokey pubs, cocky management, and undercooked food this may be your dream haven.
As previous posters mention Fremont has alot of great pubs that make "G&D" last stop!
Not Recommended – George & Dragon is predominantly a sports bar hangout and which caters to soccer matches and ignores other major sports
The decor is average with a smelly/filthy looking carpet.
Beer is quite good but the food is bad(fishn'chips) poorly undercooked(Englsih style)!
So if looking for a night out where mostly Englsih chaps drink this might be your hangout but the smoke and crowd make this an unpleasant hangout!
avoid the george! – a decent place to watch a soccer game, but i found the staff to be extreemly inconsiderate and rude. i won't be going back here any time soon. take my word for it, watch the game on satelite or have a crink at any of the other much cooler bars in fremont.
Smashing! – Been twice now on matchday and have the same thing to say: great food and drink , poor service.
It's OK tho I'll be going back. good and smokey pub so if you don't like it the patio is nice also!
