Went there for Sunday lunch on way to airport and we had a lovely lunch as everybody enjoyed it. The sticky toffee pudding afterwards was to die for. Would definitely go back and highly recommend.

Love this pub, gorgeous setting with lovely staff and amazing food. The live music provided was an unexpected bonus - great way to laze away a Sunday afternoon.

As an old coach house that dates back to 1758, The Green Dragon became a pub several years later, steeped in history, with original features including the low beams and the fire place in the bar area. Julie has been the owner of The Green Dragon for 10 years and counting. We serve traditional home-cooked food, lunchtimes everyday, as well as evening food from Tuesday through until Saturday, and take pride in every meal thats sent out of our kitchen. We also host live music throughout the year with some fantastic bands, solo acts and acoustic live mic sets hitting the pub. A warm welcome is always received upon arrival and we hope to see you soon whether it be for food, drinks or a little bit of live music.
