Welcome to
The George and Dragon Chipstead

Since the time of King Henry VIII the George & Dragon, Chipstead has been offering hospitality to locals and visitors. Renovated by new owner Benjamin James in 2009, his mission was to breathe life back into a beautiful but tired sixteenth-century pub, using tasteful decor, a roaring log fire and a menu that changes daily and uses the best of what the local, organic farms in Kent, Sussex, and Surrey have to offer.

The real open fire, heavy oak beams, upstairs and downstairs, solid furnishings and original features make this gastropub the perfect venue for a casual lunch, dinner with friends, or romantic dinner for two.

At its heart the George & Dragon, Chipstead remains a local village pub, offering a warm welcome, friendly hospitality and excellent food.  Everything is fresh, seasonal and where possible local.

A lovely setting for a restaurant with beams and quirky uneven floors. The furniture is all retro and mismatched but it all adds to the ambience. Its a busy place but thats because it is popular. The food is excellent, well presented and so full of flavours. Most of the ingredients are sourced from local farms and producers so everything is fresh and tasty. The service is fabulous with very knowledgeable staff able to whet your appetite about the menu and steer you in the right direction with specials and their own favourites. The wine list is extensive and if you are keen on cocktails there are many to choose from. Overall a pleasant dining experience with happy staff and great food.

Another wonderful evening at The George and Dragon! As always, food, service and ambience fantastic. Jason made us and our guests so welcome - almost like dining at home without the hassle of washing up!!

My fiancé and I sat in the garden for dinner, the place is so beautiful and even though there were a few other people eating around us it was quiet and relaxing. 
The food arrived quickly and was delicious, I will definitely be returning. Lovely friendly staff too, we felt so welcomed. 
It ticks every single box and more, couldn't recommend this place enough!

Lovely atmosphere and excellent food. Service a little slow but restaurant was full both inside and outside in the garden. Great menu choice and partner said beer was cheaper than some other pubs! We were party of 4 on a Friday night. Young locals were drinking at the bar but all very well behaved!


We visited The George and Dragon on a hot Wednesday evening, arriving early to enjoy some snacks and drinks outside. After hearing amazing reviews about the bread, we ordered some and it was indeed scrumptious. There was a good choice on the menu. All of our party really enjoyed their mains, and we could tell the ingredients were of exception quality, and fresh. Dessert of cherry millefeuille was very tasty and the pastry was exceptional. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely be making another visit.
