The George & Dragon



The George and Dragon inhabits a beautiful building set on the banks of the river Stour in picturesque Fordwich, just four miles from Canterbury. Fordwich, the smallest town in Britain, just oozes history, and the pub has been at the centre of community life for centuries.

You'll find log fires burning, lots of cosy corners to lock yourself away, and a well stocked bar right at the heart of things.

Our chefs create delicious seasonally inspired menus in the style of modern British cookery, always including hearty pub classics as well as introducing something a little different, or a little lighter for all occasons.

We look forward to welcoming you,
Diana and the George & Dragon team.
