As we enter what is effectively our third forced lock down, we are currently closed until further notice. We do however continue to offer our great takeaway service where you can continue to enjoy our superb food in the knowledge that you are also supporting your local Pub!
We are legislated by government to close, and whilst this government continues to consider it quite OK to only offer funding that covers less than half of our fixed overheads, we face an uncertain future. Such a policy will decimate the very existence of Pubs and Restaurants in this country, many of which will never return. Pubs are not just an outlet for food and drink, but follow the tradition of centuries in being the very hub of towns and villages, drawing the whole community together. This tradition is now tottering on the very edge of existence; and this country and its towns, villages and communities will be very much the poorer in their absence. Whilst we fully understand and indeed support the requirement to close under Tier 4, the government needs a total rethink on how it funds businesses that it forces to close just after they forced them to heavily invest in COVID protection measures.
Despite all the above we would like to welcome to the Website of The George and Dragon Pub in Thurton, Norfolk. We are a Privately Owned Freehouse offering an excellent choice of Food and Drink.
The George and Dragon is at the heart of Thurton village and Hailey and Polo aim to make the pub not only the best local around but also a great venue to travel to from the Norwich, Beccles and Loddon areas.
Parts of The George and Dragon date back to the fifteenth century and the Pub is steeped in character from its original beams to its Inglenook fireplace, it makes for a cosy, friendly and traditional village Pub.
We pride ourselves in the Home Cooked food we offer, we choose prime locally sourced ingredients and make some great traditional Homemade Pub fayre. We're famous for our Sunday Roasts too with our homemade Yorkshires and fresh seasonal vegetables combined with our slow roasted joints they make a great reason to stop by on Sundays.
We haven't forgotten the Vegetarians either, with a good selection to choose from we're the ideal destination for all the family.
For special occasions we have our function area at The Dragon Bar in the Barn where we can host any party or function no matter the occasion. With its built in projection services, this area is also a great place for Business meetings, courses and talks.
Why not explore our Website, where you can pick up all the latest news, see what we have got planned and read or download our Menus.
We're open seven days a week and serve food everyday both lunchtimes and evenings and we'd love to meet you sometime soon here at Thurton George!
