Lovely traditional country pub, in quiet location. Bit off the beaten track but we still found it via sat nav. Food was very good. Service excellent, staff very friendly.

This pub/hotel is hidden away down a narrow lane, but is in fact very well known. This is no surprise since this being our second visit the place definitely doesn't disappoint. We went for a Saturday lunch time around 1pm, on a lovely sunny day...More

A good basic country pub to stay at, but be on Vodafone, otherwise no signal. Prices for accommodation a little inflated but you are in the Cotswolds, so average for the area. Unfortunately arrived around 4pm on a Friday, and kitchen was closed, not even...More

Being one of the few eating places around the village of Cowley where we stayed, it turned out very nice. Very good service, food was great and sitting outside in the late evening was very pleasant. A bit expensive for a local pub/inn though, but...More

A traditional country 17th Century inn situated in the Cotswolds only 15 minutes drive from Cheltenham, Gloucester and Cirencester. The Green Dragon Inn continually proves to be a popular retreat for those appreciating good food, fine wines and real ales. Set in the countryside for a relaxing experience and great walks from the door.On a fine day, sit outside amongst the honeysuckle and hanging baskets or on colder days relax by the log fires in our Oak beamed bars. Browse over our extensive menu and daily changing specials board, where our chef uses his creativity in producing “pub food with a difference"One of our special features of the pub is the ‘Mouse Bar’. The furniture and the bars themselves have been made by Robert Thompson, the famous ‘Mouse Man of Kilburn’ with small mice running all over the hand carved chairs, tables and mantelpiece! To complement the food there is a wine list notable for its range and value. We also have a good selection of fine ales; Hook Norton, Otter, Doom Bar and GL Cider. Nine comfortable bedrooms are individually furnished to a high standard, all with their own en-suite bathroom. The rooms are all doubles and twins, and extra beds for children can be provided if needed. In addition we have the St. George’s Suite and has its own sitting room. Also an ideal venue for weddings.
