Excellent service. Rooms quirky. Some minor repairs required in our room, sink cracked, toilet seat cracked. No table lamp by the bed. However the feral of the hotel staff friendliness and quality of the food makes up for these minor irritations. Read more

An ideal location close to the place of business I was visiting. The room was characterful and well appointed.

On arrival we were met by a very nice young man with a beard(cant remember his name)who booked us in and showed us to our rooms.

But within minutes without us saying a word the beardy guy came and offered us another room which was fantastic. Read more

A lovely weekend break in West Wycombe

Ever since her early days my wife had wanted to visit West Wycombe and see the H3ll Fire Caves and Mausoleum. Staying in WW means staying at the George and Dragon and we were not disappointed. On arrival we had a brief wait for the room but we were early and it meant we could try a lovely local beer from the Rebellion Brewery. The four poster room and just what I expected for a 300 year old building. The staff couldn't do enough to help us during the stay and the food was excellent. Read more

The quality of the food was good and the ale was well kept. The staff were friendly and helpful and very attentive.

No Longer Value for Money

I've stayed at the George & Dragon several times but feel that now, since the increase in price, it's no longer giving value for money. The staff are friendly and very helpful but the rooms are poor. The only mirror in my room was in the bathroom and the TV screen was the smallest I've ever seen! The food is good but the vegetables with my evening meal consisted of a couple of broccoli florets and three carrot sticks. At breakfast it was either full cooked OR orange juice & cereal - not both.

Couldn't have sex, too afraid of the ghost

This was a lovely historic coaching inn. The room was very clean and unique: it had exposed beams, a four poster bed, antique furniture, and a very modern bathroom. We would have slept soundly here if it hadn't been for fear the ghost of a scorned lover who apparently haunts the room we stayed in! Read more

Comfortable stay in lovely old coaching house

Stayed for two nights on bed and breakfast basis and ate in the hotel on first night. The room was clean and comfortable but a little noisy as over the bar. The bed was very comfortable which was a nice bonus. The only draw back was that the shower could only be accessed into the room itself and so afforded no privacy what so ever, as the loo and sink where next to it with proper door so private could nt understand the shower layout! This is a lovely old coaching house full of character Read more

As ever, delighted to return to the George.

nice hotel shame about the room

While we enjoyed our stay, mainly becasue the people were friendly and we were there for a family wedding at West Wycombe Hall, the stay was spoilt becasue our room (1) was directly over the kitchen and the smell of fat from the cooking was horendous. it pervaded the room and we couldnt do anything about it i.e. had to close the window even though it was very hot, but still the smell persisted. it clung to our clothes and hair and was quite embarrasing. I would never stay in that room again Read more

An historical Inn with a lot of character

When I say the room was excellent, I don't mean in a Holiday Inn sort of way. Being about 500 years old, the floors and beams were incredibly warped, the bathroom door was beginning to come apart at the seams, and it was a super cool place to be able to stay! Benjamin Franklin might have stayed in our very room, and definitely would have eaten at the pub. The food was especially delicious and fresh with huge portions, and very tasty ale too. Read more

Description

Through a cobbled archway on West Wycombe High Street, you come to the entrance of a coaching inn built in the early 18th Century. When you walk in, it feels quite natural that people have been doing this for almost three centuries. Generations of traders, travellers, lovers and visitors have left traces of their presence on the building and its atmosphere, not least of whom is Sukie, the beautiful social climber whose ghost is said to haunt the building. The attentive service you receive from our staff, however, leaves you in no doubt that you are in the present now. Whether you hope for quick service for a business lunch or a more relaxed pace for dinner with friends, you will not be disappointed. On a fine day, you can sit in our large garden where there is a children's play area. You can stay at the George and Dragon, and will find your bedroom both comfortable and interesting. Two of the rooms have four-poster beds and all of them have the uneven floorboards and quirky angles that come with age. One room straddles the archway into the inn's courtyard and another gives a view over the old roofs and chimneys of West Wycombe. Recent concessions to modern living include direct dial telephones, en-suite bathrooms, tea and coffee making facilities and sky TV. We have three full-time chefs who create an intriguing menu which is English at heart including local game, English cheeses, traditional puddings and lamb from the local estate. Some menu items and daily specials will represent the chefs' selection from the rest of the world and may include dishes from the Mediterranean and the Far East. As you would expect from an establishment where good dining is such a high priority, we also have a choice of well kept real ales, an excellent wine list and a fine range of malt whiskies.
