George and Dragon, Clifton, nr Penrith, Cumbria CA10 2ER

Run by: Charles Lowther

Ideal for groups who fancy a night of affordable comfort, the George and Dragon hits all the right notes: top quality food (Michelin, Good Food Guide, Good Pub Guide and AA Guide recommended), beautifully refurbished and comfortable rooms, fine ales in a welcoming bar and a great wine list. Secure lock up for bikes (they welcome cyclists). The George and Dragon is a Georgian gem run by Charles Lowther, whose family has been in the area for 800 years.
