First Visit: George & Dragon

Reading time: 2 minutes...

This was our first visit to the George & Dragon in Seaton today. It’s about half-an-hour, north, from home.

We were here catching up with long-time mates, Mick & Jane, who we haven’t seen since we met at their joint birthday party back in February.

By the time we arrived, just before 12.30, it was already very busy in the Bar area. Hopefully, that was a good sign! πŸ€”

‘Snug and Bijoux’ is probably the best description for the immediate interior, leading to the Bar, although there was more seating (for eating) beyond. The Bar and eating area where we settled had a mix of upright seats and comfy chairs and sofas too! It .felt very inviting! After ordering our drinks, we were soon seated, and looking through the Menu.

The Menu was varied with a large range of Burgers too, including a few permutations that I’d never seen before! (Egg Burger anyone?). But what caught my eye, was something else. It was the contents of their Homemade Rolls being served on the adjacent table to some eagerly awaiting pubsters! The ‘Fish Finger & Tartare Sauce‘ creation contained the largest fish-fingers I’ve ever seen in my life (and I’ve eaten M&S’s Jumbos!) πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

However, in spite of the temptation of the digits from our sea-based friends, I settled for one of the Burgers – their ‘Muntjac Burger‘ to be specific. It also contained Black Pudding (and that was a first for me!) πŸ‘πŸ˜‹

Ann settled for Chicken Caesar Salad; Mick, the Sea Bass and Jane, the Duck Confit. There was a little bit of a wait for it all to arrive, but it was worth it, and abundantly clear that it had all been freshly prepared. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their Mains, and personally, it was one of the best Burgers I’ve had in a long time – the perfect blend of venison, bacon and sauce! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

Desserts followed (as they do!) with me tucking into the Eaton Mess; Ann chose the Chocolate Mousse with Cherries & Salted Caramel; Mick chose the Roasted Pineapple, whilst Jane sampled the Coconut Pannacotta. They were equally as good as our Mains, and beautifully presented too!

Top marks for a smallish operation that had a cosy feel about the place with some authentic homemade fare that looked and tasted delicious. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘. Thanks ‘George’ for a great experience!

Are we going back? Oh, yes! πŸ˜€
