Full Description
The George & Dragon Hotel provides a balanced blend of indoor and outdoor areas. With guest space from 50 to 120 people to join together, both intimate and lavish gatherings can be accommodated here. The wedding party can get ready on site to- the Georgian Suite provides somewhere secluded for trying on outfits. For those who wish to have their ceremony at the hotel, the courtyard provides somewhere splendid. Here, vows can be exchanged and rings may be slipped on fingers. The venue provides an indoor setting that would also be befitting such a magical occasion. With the couple’s status as newlyweds official, everyone can take some time to mark the occasion with photos. The garden offers a charming spot where portraits can be preserved and memories saved. Afterwards, the reception can begin in earnest inside the transformed venue. Ceiling drapes overhead combine with sophisticated chandeliers to create a luxurious setting. Round tables and wooden chairs provide space for the wedding party to sit, dine, and enjoy some beverages as the afternoon gradually slips toward the evening. Guests can enjoy drinks at the bar as the entertainment swings into action and dance moves are busted out on the dance floor. To begin with, a consultation service allows the hotel staff to figure out what preferences a couple of honour desires. Owing to their dedication and passion, the venue staff are more than happy to accommodate clients’ needs to ensure that the day turns out the way it was always supposed to. Those who would like to have their big celebration here can opt to rent out the entire venue if they so wish. Bar service is also available to enjoy at The George & Dragon Hotel. The culinary staff is highly skilled at producing an array of dishes inspired by many regions, both at home and abroad. Our menus can be customized to suit clients, while we can also cater to many dietary requirements and by offering gluten-free dishes, vegetarian options.
