The George and Dragon has been a Public House for nearly 200 years and was originally situated next to a line of Shipbuilders that reached along the foreshore that is now Mayors Avenue and the Car Park to Coronation Park and beyond. Dartmouth once rivalled Plymouth and Portsmouth in importance for both shipbuilding and as a Naval base. Our sun-trap garden wall is the last remaining visible evidence of these former industrial buildings adjacent to the site – Now the Marks & Spencer Food Store and Travis Perkins.
Whether you are joining us for own special coffee and homemade cakes, a glass of wine and tasty lunch, an afternoon cream tea, for Evening Dinner or just a drink – You are always assured of a warm welcome from all of our friendly staff at The George & Dragon.

Why not bring the family to 'Dine with the Dragons' too? Well-behaved children and dogs on a lead are very welcome and will be made to feel very much at home. We're sure the kids will find something yummy on our Children’s menu
(all homemade and no ghastly reconstituted chicken nuggets or processed and reformed fish fingers), plus there is always fresh water for your dog inside and out - and sometimes a tasty treat behind the bar – with your permission of course! (note: Dogs are not allowed in our upstairs restaurant as stipulated by the EHO (except guide dogs of course).
We are ‘family focused’ but we also take our responsibilities under the new 2014 Licensing Act and our 2015 Premises Licence very seriously. This states that Children are not allowed at the Bars and cannot be served at the Bars; children must also always be accompanied by a responsible adult and are not allowed on the premises at all after 9pm.
We look forward to serving you and your friends and family very soon.

The ONLY Beer Garden in Dartmouth
One of our main attractions is clearly our large, sunny, natural stone paved garden with plenty of attractive quality bench table seating and our huge sun-trap wall. We also ensure that some areas and seating are always protected from too much sun by our Giant umbrellas, which also provide some shelter if the weather is not so cooperative for your outdoor dining plans or live music events. In addition, we have also installed two rising screens to provide alfresco diners with even more protection from the elements! We've tried hard to help ensure you have a comfortable and enjoyable visit and dining experience at the new G&D (inside and out) - Whatever the weather!
Music at the George and Dragon
We are licensed for live music inside in the Main Bar and also outside in the garden during the Summer, where we regularly provide suitable live music to entertain our customers, whilst also respecting our lovely neighbours of course. We have a full programme of live music in the garden during the Dart Music Festival when we are proud to be Gold Music Festival Partners. For more information check out our Dart Music Festival Page
We also fully participate in providing the entertainment for Dartmouth Royal Regatta, again with a full live music programme in our Beer Garden – For more details check out our Dartmouth Royal Regatta Page
Private Functions in Dartmouth
Our bars, restaurant and beer garden can be available for Private Functions by arrangement – please directly for details. We are also happy to host local Charity Events when we can.
Boat Room Restaurant at the G & D
As part of the George & Dragon's refurbishment, we've expanded significantly! Not only is the general bar area much bigger and has more seating, we've built a smaller upstairs seating area that can be used as a quieter spot to relax in, or even somewhere to book for a dinner party or business meeting!
