Welcome to The George & Dragon, Ightham

Located in the picturesque village of Ightham, with a striking black and white Tudor facade, The George & Dragon was originally a manor house, then a coaching inn - but its history is even more impressive. Legend has it that this is where Guy Fawkes hatched his infamous Gunpowder Plot and was captured after fleeing London when it failed. Queen Elizabeth I is also rumoured to have stayed here.

To this day the building retains plenty of its original character and features including fireplaces and heavy wooden beams. Inside you will find the dining room, the bar and a private function room.

We are a family-friendly pub however children are not allowed in the bar after 6pm.
