The George and Dragon Hotel: experience our hospitality

A warm welcome awaits you at The George and Dragon Hotel. 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 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.


Our Superior rooms are just a few metres away next door in 'Ardley House'. All have been recently decorated and being next door to the main building are that little bit quieter especially weekends.


The George and Dragon Hotel is our historic Suffolk coaching inn with its inherent character and traditional charm but up dated to keep with the times. 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 shades in the summer. The "Gazebo" 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!


Whether it is for business or pleasure, time to relax or time for an adventure: The George and Dragon Hotel is the right choice for a wonderful break.


As our guest, you can enjoy all the conveniences of a traditional hotel: from comfortable well-equipped rooms to our attentive team who are always on call to look after your every need. With our many years of experience and long tradition of exclusive service and thousands of visitors each year, we look forward to welcoming you as a guest.
