If you haven’t been in for a while, pop into The George and Dragon in Acton High Street as there have been some changes for the better in the past few weeks.

Firstly there’s the new landlord Crawford Campbell who arrives with a great background in hospitality including a stint at Gleneagles.

As you might imagine, that means some changes to the menu – keeping some traditional gastropub grub but with a few more upmarket twists to please the palate. Starters include Pan-seared Kyle of Localsh Scallops with Saffron Fondant Potatoes and Braised Puy Lentils, Salmon Fishcakes with Chilli and Scallion Mayonnaise with Wild Rocket Salad and Pan-fried Chicken Livers with Chorizo, Leeks, Lentils and Ciabatta. Main course start around £10 and include Slowly Braised Lamb Shank with Garlic and Rosemary Mash and Roasted Root Vegetables, Fillet of Cornish Sea Bass with Lyonnaise Potatoes, Spinach and Caper and Lemon Sauce and Beer Battered Fish with Handcut Chips, Mushy Peas and Tartare Sauce.

The pub also has a new stage area in the dining room at the back which now hosts an Open Mic night every Tuesday and Thursday. The George and Dragon also has Wi-Fi available now.

The character of the pub and the quiz nights on Monday remain the same, but there’s a distinctly upbeat feel to the place so go along and support it by making it your new local, top of your list for Sunday lunch with friends and family or the venue for your next event.
