TRADITION & QUALITY
We would like to welcome you to join us and our community here at The George and Dragon to enjoy and savor a carefully selected local beverage in the beautiful surroundings of Swaledale
CASK BEERS, LAGER & CIDER
We are renowned for our great range of cask beers, mostly sourced from our regional and local micro-breweries. Of course you’ll also find lager and cider available too!
We have an exciting wine menu that offers wines to either complement your dining experience at the G & D or just to savour and enjoy through the seasons.

Wide and varied range of spirits on offer supporting local suppliers and distilleries, including Taplin & Mageen’s award winning signature craft gin and spiced rum
CAMPAIGN FOR REAL ALE
We are very proud to be multi-time award winners of the CAMRA pub of the year. Not only for the north, but also for the whole country!
GUEST BEERS, CIDER & LAGER
At the G&D we have a fabulous range of guest cask beers, keg beverages and real cider, mostly sourced from local breweries. We rotate and change them on a regular basis to bring you something different to try. Our selections follow the seasons.
Our current line-up
We have up to eight cask beers for you. Up to six of these are guest ales, mostly sourced from local and regional breweries. The remaining two are Wensleydale’s Falconer, a great session bitter, and Rudgate’s Superb Ruby Mild. We also have at least one real cider.
While we are absolutely committed to cask ale, we also have an interesting selection of keg beverages for those who want something a little different including two lagers, a nitro-stout and an IPA
Always on tap
The Falconer is a light copper session bitter with a blend of delicious fruity malt flavours and subtle hop aromas leading to a very moreish finish.
Vol: 3.9% ABV
The Ruby Mild is a superb multi-award winning, nutty, and satisfying drink. With its ruby red colour and complex bittersweet malt flavors and a rich velvet finish.
Rudgate Brewery Wensleydale
Vol: 4.4% ABV
Current Guest Beers
Shadow Fall is a really stunning 4.8% Porter. This rich classic Porter is dark, brooding and truly wonderful. We would say this is definitely one for the connoisseurs among us.
Vol: 4.8% ABV
To The Regiment
To The Regiment is the first special of 2023 from the Wensleydale Brewery. It is a 4.5% Blonde IPA and is a real cracker of a beer. The Sticklebract and Azzaca hops really fill this with flavour.
Vol: 4.5% ABV
Extra Biscuit Brown
Brown Malt, Amber Malt and oats have been baked (in the taproom pizza oven!) to release their biscuity flavour. This autumnal Brown Ale features richly-layered flavours of malt with a dry, clean and distinctly biscuity finish and an aroma of freshly baked shortbread and roasted hazelnuts.
Vol: 5.5% ABV
Bobeck Export 5% Amber Ale of Red fruit Flavours, embellished with delicate hops and a bittersweet malty finish.
Vol: 5.0% ABV
