We have been coming to the Green Dragon since the 80's when Old Tom used to own it, No food just crisps. It was converted into a Pub restaurant and the menu and food is always good. They are considerate when we take our disabled grandson in

We booked a table for 7pm and were seated quickly enough. Drinks orders were taken and my wife had a question about a discount card that we had been given on a previous visit. The waitress was very curt with her reply, which made her feel very small!! The main meal came out after a fair while of waiting, and... More

We are sorry to hear you were not entirely happy with your visit, the waitress did admit at your table that she misunderstood the question regarding the discount - thinking that the question was is it 1 discount card per person? - the reply was meant to be light hearted, explaining that that would then make the offer more than...

We'd booked a table and were all seated by 7pm. Ordered drinks which we only got after another waitress tried to take our drinks order a second time. She said she would chase up our drinks. That was the start of a disasterous visit. Starters came out after god knows how long, my prawn cocktail was flavourless - supposed to... More

The atmosphere was good, if not quite hectic. Service was friendly, but there were incredibly busy. We were told 45 minute wait for main courses which we really appreciated - very professional. The starters: sharing platter and sharing Nachos were good. three out of the four main courses were below par; everything that was deep fried was overcooked; my son's... More

Sorry to hear you weren't completely happy with your visit on Sunday and that the food wasn't up to our usual standard. We were short staffed both front and back of house due to illnesses which is why there was a wait put on for the orders however this shouldn't have impacted the food quality, so I can only apologise...

Having heard good reports of the Green Dragon a group of ten booked a post Christmas meal. All menu choices were prebooked, from a good section of main courses and deserts. Unfortunately, the main courses did not come up to expectation. Meats were though and chewy, vegetables were undercooked; service from two willing but overworked waitresses was slow, and, when...

We were passing, and popped in for some lunch. Very friendly staff, attractive interior, and a lot of choice. Food was served quickly, and was lovely. Price was also very good. Will visit again.
