George Grill & Dragon Bar

The George Grill and Dragon Bar are temples of all day dining, serving a modern European menu with a sunny, Mediterranean slant. At the heart of the kitchen is a wood-charcoal grill where the team cook freshly caught seafood from Rye Bay, local meats and vegetables. The George’s Dragon Bar has long been been a popular drinking venue in the town.  The pub serves real ales from Sussex, draught cider and continental beers. A wide list of wines by the glass is available including a healthy selection from English vineyards, for example, Chapel Down in Tenterden.

Courtyard Garden

The Courtyard Garden is open every day, throughout the summer months, until 10pm.  It is available for eating and drinking on a first-come, first-served basis.
