George & Dragon Pub and Inn.

A warm welcome awaits you at The George and Dragon Hotel Inn. We are situated in the picturesque, quintessentially English town of Long Melford in Sudbury, Suffolk and provide real ales, good home cooked food with an la carte menu restaurant and regular live entertainment making us one of the most popular venues in Long Melford, Sudbury.


Our Hotel Inn is a building that shows the passage of time and history. It's quirky, interesting, character filled and individual. If you are looking for the uniformed certainty of the corporate chain owned 'lodge' or 'inn', then you will be disappointed. Our 14 bedrooms are all different in size and layout with each one offering something different. However all rooms provide the essentials such as: En-suite facilities, fresh linen on comfortable beds, TV, tea and coffee making facilities, full English or continental breakfast included.

The George and Dragon Hotel Inn is our historic Suffolk coaching inn with its inherent character and traditional charm. It is that traditional quality that we strive to maintain and preserve, delivering what is expected from such an establishment. We have a lovely mix of people that make up our clientele - locals, business travelers and visitors all enjoy each other's company in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

In the winter, coal and log fires entice you in from the cold and in summer our extensive gardens and courtyard offer al fresco dining and a place to relax in the sun. Our very large heated umbrella (7m x 5m) offers undercover space for smokers (and drinkers!) in all weathers and welcome shade in the summer. The shed as it has become fondly known, is a thatched dining pavilion seating up to 8 in comfort, ideal for that special occasion or private party. We have a function room in the garden that is used for meetings, presentations or as a private dining room. What you can be assured of is that we look forward to everyone's company and making sure a good time is had, whether dining with us, drinking or enjoying one of our functions or live music events. We offer genuine friendship and character without pretence or ceremony, unless of course it's a special occasion when we are very good at ceremony and theatre!
