Enjoyed a lovely Saturday afternoon lunch out on the patio at the weekend.

The menu is rather limited, but with a specials board and traditional offerings on the menu you are bound to find something you fancy.

The pub itself is beautifully decorated, really cosy and welcoming. The outside patios feature benches and tables which are perfect for those sunny days.

Located in the village of Oxton this pub sits right on the side of a road. Whilst the road wasn't particularly busy when we visited (1:30pm on a Saturday) I'd be less inclined to take young children if you intend to sit and eat/drink outside as I'd be constantly watching them.

In terms of price, we did find it a little pricey for lunch but the food was lovely and the portion sizes generous, it wouldn't put us off returning again in the future.

We probably eat here a couple of times a month and find that the food is consistently of a good standard. The home-made steak and ale pie is excellent and deserves a place on the regular menu rather than the specials board. The staff are always friendly without being intrusive. This is a great village pub offering a pleasant change from the predictability of many of the big chains of pubs.

This is a very comfortable and welcoming pub. I haven't given 5 stars because I would have liked a little more variety for vegetarians/vegans. I had a delicious vegetarian pate with bread and a large tasty side salad.

Visited The Old Green Dragon for the first time this afternoon and I have to say I was extremely impressed with the quality of food. It was beautifully cooked and absolutely delicious!

We hadn't booked in advance and the food was served extremely quickly. Great service, reasonably priced and great atmosphere.

With exceptional Yorkshire puds.

I will be back to sample the Tapas!
