Warm welcome on a cool night. Fire blazing in the old fireplace. Plenty of menu choices and we indulged with 3 courses. Meals generous and enjoyable. Staff attentive. Plenty of drink choices. Overall experience good though more expensive than we had planned

I've not been here for a few years, but we decided to give it another go as I remembered it as a lovely place. I'm disappointed to report that although the decor and ambience is great, the food was average at best. Of four main courses, only one was finished, and two were left virtually untouched. It was really not... More

My husband and I enjoyed a three course meal here recently. I had high expectations of this dining experience after reading feedback and receiving recommendations from friends that have dined here regularly. Perhaps that was my downfall - I had high expectations. Jenni and the staff were friendly and attentive. Although for us the dining room lacked ambience. I am... More

We found this restaurant exceptional for a romantic dinner. The atmosphere was quiet, the music subtle, service fantastic-you didn't feel hurried or pressured, meals were varied and delicious.

Had dinner at the Old George and Dragon to celebrate my wife's birthday. We haven't been to this restaurant for some years but is still good value for money for fine dining in Maitland. Great food with very friendly service.

My High Tea experience with a group of local business women was excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. It was a nice touch that the chef came to interact with us and made us feel very welcomed. The room was private and beautifully decorated.

It was our anniversary and we were warmly greeted. To say we were looked after was an understatement. It has been many years since we were last here and on that occasion it was stuffy and the food pretty ordinary. Things have certainly changed for the better since the change of ownership a few years ago! We had a lovely... More
