Our Story

Welcome To The George and Dragon Hotel

The George & Dragon one of Belper’s oldest and finest public houses.
Serving Real Ales and making people feel welcome for nearly 200 years.
Situated on the main A6, at the north end of Belper, the George and Dragon has something for everyone.

A quiet corner, to sit and enjoy a pint from our excellent range of Real Ales or maybe the open-plan section of the pub, with its large wooden tables, is the ideal place for you and your friends to get together.

In the summer our beer garden is a great place to enjoy your drink, along with views of the Derbyshire countryside.

As with all good traditional pubs there are plenty of activities for you to join in with. We have teams in most of the local pub leagues and Friday nights at the George have always been associated with some of the best live music you will find in Belper.

Within walking distance of many of Belper’s best restaurants, the George is a popular venue for diners to gather before going onto their restaurant or to continue the evening once the meal is finished.
