Open again and muchly brightened up inside with a rear garden now open. No longer the basic dark boozer it was before this summer's refurb. Had just a peek.

About the George & Dragon

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Macclesfield, Cheshire, SK11 6JL.

Often overlooked in an area richly provided with pubs selling a wide range of real ales. In Sunderland Street no more than a minute's walk from the railway station. A locals' local from the Robinsons brewery stable. Until summer 2017 felt very 60s inside and what with the people it did feel how pubs used to be 30 or 40 years ago. 4 handpumps, in 2 banks each of 2, on the bar counter but usually only 1 in use. Refurbished during a period of closure in summer 2017 and now incorporates some fancy shelving and several partitioned booths but the bar counter remains where it was.

We have visited this pub 12 times, seen 4 different beers and tried 1 of them.
