George and Dragon
Traditional, British[show 2 more photos]
Set in the heart of Great Budworth village nestled amongst quaint cottages and the impressive St Mary’s & All Saints Church, entering Great Budworth is like a step back in time, and the traditional old fashioned service we offer at The George & Dragon blends harmoniously with our surroundings.
The George & Dragon has many original features worthy of seeking out including our original 1722 stone bar inscribed ‘NIL NIMIUM CUPITO’, I desire nothing to excess. The inscribed Oak and Post fence or the inner door stone with a verse from Warburton for whom the building was redesigned circa 1880.
The entire village is steeped in history. The Running Pump at the foot of Great Budworth was until 1934 the source of drinking water for the whole of the community. It is renowned that local sweethearts would swear undying love here, and according to legend the love will last “so long as runs that water from the spout”.
Our menu is created by using the finest locally sourced ingredients to the highest of standards. Please contact us for details of chef’s individual weekly specials.
