Welcome to the George and Dragon

A pub as it should be


he motto of The George and Dragon in Newton near Castle Acre is ‘A Pub as it Should Be’ – and there’s nothing that would describe it better. Pull up a seat next to the roaring open log fire and enjoy a warm welcome from husband and wife team Paul Sykes and Sarah Williams and their team of friendly staff. Paul and Sarah have a wealth of experience in the hospitality trade and know quality food will always be remembered, but the atmosphere of a dining establishment is equally important.

“The George and Dragon has stood here for years, serving the community as a traditional village pub and we want it to stay that way,” says Paul. “We’ve completely renovated the building whilst still keeping all of its charm and character.” But it isn’t just the curiosities dotted around Paul and Sarah’s pub that are conversation starters. As a chef Paul is passionate about food, and along with co-chef Fred puts every effort into creating their own takes on traditional British classics. Memorable dishes bursting

with originality are on offer across the menu – one in particular that Paul is proud of is a Tongue and Tail Pie. “The oxtail and ox tongue was something a little different to the normal steak and kidney,” he says. “It was extremely well received and I still have requests for it now.” If you enjoy good food which tastes even better in good company, then pay a visit to The George and Dragon in Newton, where a homely, inviting atmosphere awaits. It really is a pub as it should be.
